$100m in BEP2 Projects to Join BEPSwap

Over $100m in project value is committed to joining BEPSwap on launch.

The five Launch Partners

The THORChain team is pleased to announce that over $100m in projects have committed to the BEPSwap launch. This is extremely exciting for the ecosystem since it means a strong, liquid and secure launch for BEPSwap and Launch Project token holders.

$RUNE will be staked alongside each token in each pool, serving as the settlement currency that links all pools. Due to the mathematical pricing of the pools, the total value of tokens staked must always equal the total value of the staked $RUNE.

Since being announced on 10 July 2019, BEPSwap has seen strong momentum in the Binance Chain community. Five strong projects have signed up to be part of the launch.

Launch projects will experience the following benefits:

  • THORChain will acquire off the market projects tokens between now and the launch in order to bootstrap the launch pools.
  • THORChain and Launch Partners will work together to promote the ecosystem, including potentially integrations into the project ecosystems such as wallet.
  • Launch Projects will be able to stake some parts of their treasury into the pool to offer even more liquidity to their token holders.
  • Launch Project token holders will be able to stake their tokens in order to earn on trade commissions every day.
