Have you ever used Uniswap through Bridge Wallet? If yes, you have free UNI tokens to claim!
If you have made any transaction with Uniswap before September 1st 2020 you are eligible to receive UNI tokens, Uniswap's protocol token that was announced and released on September 16th 2020.
This guide shows you how to claim them from Bridge Wallet.
Make sure that you have enough Ethers on the wallet address from which you are claiming your UNI tokens.
You will need to pay for the claim transaction's gas fees, which have been unusually high since UNI's release.
If you plan to cash-out your UNI immediately, you will also need to prepare enough Ethers to pay for the transaction fees to swap UNI into ETH/DAI/USDT/USDC, then cash-them out on your bank account (see exchange rates here).
You can check the current gas prices recommended on etherscan.io/gastracker.
