A Detailed Guide for using The Alien Boy NFT20 Pool

What is NFT20?

NFT20 is a permissionless p2p protocol to tokenize NFTs and make them tradable on decentralized exchanges such as UniSwap or Sushiswap.

Anyone with an NFT can create a new pool or add his NFT to an existing pool and get ERC20 Token derivatives of their NFTs in a permission-less way, those tokens can be transferred and traded on DEXes right away. You can also swap your NFT for any other NFT of the same pool, no need to tokenize.

NFT20 also allows you to own a fractional share of an NFT in the collection. For example, if you own 50 TABOY20 then it means that you own 50% of a Floor The Alien Boy( cheapest The Alien Boy).

What is an NFT20 Pool and what can you do with them?

The NFT20 Pool contains The Alien Boys that other users have deposited and you can perform different actions on it using TABOY20 . TABOY20 is an ERC20 token created specifically for The Alien Boy NFT20 Pool and it can be traded on Uniswap.

Use cases for the NFT20 pool and TABOY20:

  1. You can deposit a The Alien Boy into the pool for 95 TABOY20 tokens.
  2. You can use 100 TABOY20 tokens to swap out any The Alien Boy in the pool.
  3. You can swap a The Alien Boy with any other The Alien Boy in the pool.
  4. You can buy directly using ETH from the pool.
  5. You can exchange your ETH for TABOY20 on Uniswap.
  6. You can exchange your TABOY20 tokens for ETH on Uniswap when there is enough liquidity.
  7. You can provide Liquidity for TABOY20-ETH Pair and earn rewards in $MUSE.

Note: All The Alien Boy are treated equally in the pool so you should only deposit The Alien Boy that you think are common (i.e Floor The Alien Boy)

We will go over each of the above use cases in more detail below.
