WannaSwap Brings New App LaunchPad to NEAR Ecosystem

NEAR is pleased to announce WannaSwap LaunchPad, a new IDO platform and DEX for launching new blockchain projects on the NEAR ecosystem. Live since December 21st, 2021, WannaSwap is one of the first DEXes built on Aurora, and is the recipient of grants from both NEAR Foundation and Proximity Labs, a research and development firm targeting the NEAR ecosystem.

Similar to Binance LaunchPad, WannaSwap LaunchPad functions as a liquidity hub on the NEAR ecosystem, and supports new projects through the development process. As a token release platform, WannaSwap LaunchPad brings NEAR blockchain users quality projects each month.

“For new projects, WannaSwap Launchpad is more than just a regular token sale platform,” says David Bowie, co-founder and CEO of WannaSwap. “It’s also a consulting unit, supporting the development of projects from our understanding and relationships in design tokenomics, marketing, grant, investment, and liquidity.”

After an IDO, projects also have the opportunity for long-term collaboration with WannaSwap LaunchPad. With WannaSwap LaunchPad’s guidance, for instance, projects can create a farming pool or get connected with other projects to create a thriving network.

Projects can register an IDO on WannaSwap LaunchPad in one of two ways:

  1. Send direct mail + pitch deck to
  2. Submit at the launchpad interface (available when the website is released at the end of January).

For users, WannaSwap Launchpad brings great investment opportunities because projects must pass strict standards in terms of teams, backers, roadmap, and goals. Users can join a project’s IDO on WannaSwap LaunchPad in the following step-by-step process:

Step 1: Access WannaSwap LaunchPad (link will be provided later).

Step 2: Select the project.

Step 3: Stake $WANNA.

Step 4: Commit.

Step 5: Claim.

WannaSwap LaunchPad will be publishing a more detailed engagement tutorial before the feature goes live by the end of January.
