Here’s the crux of the article in video form:
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on May 06) follows:
Those who have been trading already know the benefits that a decentralized platform provides to traders and developers by cutting down intermediates.
The Etherium based platform is compatible with all ERC-20 tokens and wallet services like the giant Coinbase.
The platform doesn’t have a dedicated mobile app but it allows to trade on top of other wallets using Uniswap’s front-end interface.
Uniswap has been in the news recently for its upcoming V3 and the altcoins it would affect along the way.
But soon after the launch of the most powerful version V3 of the protocol, Uniswap has started to trouble Coinbase users who were about to begin trading.
Social media channels have been flooded with an issue where Coinbase wallet throws a blank page upon accessing the Uniswap interface.
What about the coinbase wallet issue, is someone going to fix it? Thousend of users cant connect vie their coinbase wallet, mones is loecked up? (Source)
New to this, bought #TEL on uniswap, but with their new update, it is not working on the coinbase wallet. Any other trusted wallets I could use? (Source)
This is a major hit as the Uniswap V3 update claimed to provide a seamless trade but turned out to be a total disappointment as it is not working with Coinbase anymore.
This issue has only appeared after the latest update, things were in flow with the old version.
There appears to be no solution or address from any of the supports at this moment and moving to a different exchange that supports ERC-20 tokens is the only option to break the barrier.
There are plenty of wallets available that can be linked with Uniswap but Metamask is one of the recently launched and most famous Etherium wallets.
This is a total mess considering the humongous user base Coinbase has. Coinbase and Uniswap really need to fix things up before users begin to make the shift.
We will keep tracking this issue and update this page as the story unfolds so stay tuned.

Update 3 (October 27)
Uniswap seems to be back up and running once again as there’s a lack of reports suggesting that users are facing any issues with the service.
Update 4 (October 30)
Users are still reporting issues with Uniswap. As per reports, when users hit ‘confirm swap’, it says waiting for confirmation. Then it refreshes and shows confirm swap again.
Here are some reports for reference:
@Uniswap Anyone else’s #Uniswap not working ? When I hit ‘confirm swap’ it refreshes and shows confirm swap again. Transaction doesn’t go through… anyone can help? (Source).. however the Gas fees were withdraw from my coinbase wallet.. trying to swap USDC for Saitama coin.. ?? (Source)
Update 5 (November 02)
According to one of the affected users, increasing the slippage tolerance seems to have worked.
I went and tried op suggestions and increasing the slippage tolerance worked for me. 2.5% worked. Any lower doesn’t confirm the swap for me. Thanks for helping!!
Every time I try swapping with ethereum for another coin I hit “confirm swap” and it says “waiting for confirmation” then reverts right back to the confirm swap button. I’ve tried for 15 or 20 mins straight at different times with no luck. I’ve allowed anywhere from .10-.50 slippage. Any ideas on how to get a successful swap? Thank you! (Source)
Update 6 (November 03)
Incoming is another workaround suggested by a Redditor. Check it out below:
I had that problem for quite sometime. For some reason, changing the last two digits to “99” of the coin your swapping to, seems to work for me. (Source)
