Linkswap caters to LINK lovers

Linkswap is a decentralized finance (DeFi) platform for an automated market-making (AMM) that will rival Uniswap, SushiSwap and similar venues. The project team announced that they are focusing their products on so-called Link Marines, the hardcore Chainlink supporters.

The developers promised to handle the issues related to the skyrocketing Ethereum gas prices that haunted many DeFi projects. Apart from that, Linkswap will support continuous liquidity pools (CLPs) to reduce the impermanent loss for liquidity providers.

This is especially important for LINK Marines, who would rather HODL their LINK and forgo yield to stack their LINK, if the seeking of this yield could lead to potential losses of the LINK they hold so dear, they wrote in the blog post

LINK capitalizes on Linkswap’s launch anticipation

LINK is also supposed to benefit from the FOMO around Linkswap because it will be the part of most of the trading pairs on the platform. At the time of writing, LINK is trading at $15. The token has gained over 7% during the weekend and over 23% in the past seven days. Currently, LINK is the fifth-largest digital asset with a current market capitalization of $5.8 billion.

The Linkswap AMM will be launched on November 25, along with several liquidity mining fields for various less popular tokens. LINK owners will receive big bonuses and remuneration in YFL tokens. Experts believe that the anticipation of the successful start has been driving the market recently.

Recently, Linkswap announced the partnership with UniLayer that offers a new-generation trading infrastructure focused on processing limit orders within AMM systems. The token of the project, LAYER, will be supported by one of the liquidity pools.
