Aquafarm Rotation #11: Dec 30th — Jan 13th

This week we have 6 new Double-Dip pools, 3 new Standard Pools, and a bit of Aquafarm alpha.

As we sail towards 2022, our ecosystem continues to grow with the arrival of new Double-Dip and Standard Pools. Explore the full list in this update — and watch out for some AMAs with newly listed projects on our Twitter!

For new podmates, “Aquafarms” are liquidity pools on Orca. They allow our users to earn yield in the form of trading fees and the ORCA governance token. “Double-Dip” pools allow users to earn additional rewards, in the form of both ORCA and tokens from Solana projects we have partnered with.

Read on to discover what’s arriving on Orca this week…

Aquafarms earn LPs a share of trading fees and ORCA rewards.

Most current Aquafarms will continue with no significant changes. A few notable highlights include:
