When users add liquidity on Uniswap, Uniswap smart contract adds all the tokens into a pool which users can trade against the liquidity pool. Uniswap also allows users to exchange Ethereum to any ERC20 tokens in a decentralized manner.

In this how-to, we are going to use our native token Mycryptoview.com Token(MCV) as an example to demonstrate how to add liquidity to Uniswap.

How to add liquidity to Uniswap
