How time flies when you’re a master of your finances. As we approach the mid-year mark fast, it’s only appropriate to review our quarterly accomplishments in the Moonbeam DeFi arena and beyond.

Q1 2024 highlights

🎂 2 years and counting

The turn of the year brought one more reason for the Beamswap team to light fireworks. ✨ We celebrated two years of tireless work, ambitious goals, the invaluable support of our community — and the results that stemmed from everything we put in.

At the young age of two, Beamswap is a leader of the DeFi space in the Moonbeam and Polkadot ecosystems. And we’ve only just begun.

Dive into our most memorable achievements.

📈 Volume

Your DeFi platforms of choice, Beamswap and DeFi, started the year off strong, too — with millions added to trading volume stats on a monthly basis.

Beamswap v3 has accumulated well over half a billion USD, while Beamex has recently hit over 60 million USD in trading volume.

Moving steadily towards the platform’s goal of self-sustainability, the order execution fee on Beamex was cut in half, further incentivizing traders’ engagement on the only decentralized perpetual exchange on Moonbeam.

Beamex has become one of the fastest-growing DEXes in the Polkadot space, thanks to:

✔️ Fully decentralized limit orders
✔️ Optimal efficiency
✔️ Low cost and price impact
✔️ Advanced trades
✔️ Profit sharing
✔️ And more

🔑 New integrations

The Beamswap DeFi Hub has experienced several important upgrades, further perfecting its offering and satisfying user demand.

First, we launched Beamswap Lottery, where users can try their luck and win from a pool of rewards. Read more 👉 here.

Next, the Beamswap Yield Booster (Vote) feature was established, allowing users to improve their farming game by pumping rewards in their pools of choice. Learn more 👉 here.

And finally, Beamchef V3 smart contracts were upgraded to improve the platform with lower transaction costs and individual control of stGLINT rates, ultimately expanding the stGLINT token’s utility. Read more 👉 here.


And it wasn’t only about back-end tweaking — we enhanced traders’ experience with several significant improvements of user interface, too.

The revamped Burn dashboard 2.0 on Beamswap delivers a clearer overview of the recent GLINT burns, topped with key metrics and overall simplified navigation.

With the V3 Liquidity UI Update, users can enjoy a seamless and refined liquidity management experience under one roof, enabling faster and easier V3 liquidity provision.

Beamex underwent UI tweaks, too, to deliver decentralized perpetual trades in a more seamless and intuitive way for easier navigation and greater portfolio-growing opportunities.


Beamswap’s native token, $GLINT, was listed on the MEXC exchange in the USDT pair. The listing represents an important milestone for Beamswap as it helps $GLINT reach a wider crypto community. Get it here.
