[PRESS RELEASE – New York, United States, 3rd June 2021]
Decentralized exchange and yield farming platform MakiSwap has reached $50 million in Total Value Locked (TVL) within three weeks of its launch on Huobi Eco Chain (HECO).
The liquidity flooding into the four pools was such that the automated market maker (AMM) saw over $23 million locked within just three days of launch.
Initially, liquidity pools included MAKI-HT, MAKI-HUSD, HT-HUSD, and LAYER-HT, though ETH-HUSD, BTC-HUSD, USDT-HT, and USDT-HUSD pools have since been added.
The highest APY currently offered is 2,624% for the MAKI-HT pool. Most liquidity has gone into the ETH-HUSD pool that is currently amassing over $11 million in TVL, which offers an APY of 190.88%.
The Unilayer-powered MakiSwap protocol became the first dedicated AMM on HECO when it launched on May 28. As well as token swaps, MakiSwap is planning to add new protocol features in the near future such as: limit orders, tradingview charts, analytics, NFT marketplace and IFO launchpad.
MakiSwap will also release its Initial Farming Offering (IFO) platform in a few days, an event that is expected to increase demand for MAKI tokens since they are required for participation.
MakiSwap and Unilayer founder Geo previously referred to HECO as a “hidden gem,” noting that its adoption statistics rivaled those of Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain (BSC).
MakiSwap is a Unilayer-powered protocol that realigns incentives for network participants by introducing revenue sharing and forum-driven network efforts to the popular AMM model. Built on the Huobi Eco Chain (HECO), it offers speedy transaction times, cheap gas fees, and deep liquidity for tokens running on HECO.
