Any Ethereum forks based on the Proof-of-Work (PoW) algorithm after The Merge will not be supported by Uniswap protocols. This statement was made by the Uniswap Labs team.
The Merge is coming, but Uniswap users don’t need to do anything. We support the upgrade & have no plans to back forks in our web app.

In their opinion, the migration of Ethereum to the Proof-of-Stake algorithm will create potential problems for the operation of the TWAP price oracle in the third version of the protocol.
In addition, possible launch PoW forks in the Ethereum network during the update may open a new attack vector on Uniswap by implementing a re-authorization for funds transfer.
“Ultimately, these are small issues and worth tackling given the benefits to the entire ecosystem. We are excited and looking forward to The Merge!” added the developers.
Previously, a number of major industry players, including an analytical company, refused to support potential Ethereum PoW forks. Chainlinkmining pool Ethermine and NFT marketplace opensea.
