ApeSwap Expands to Polygon with Ten Partner Projects! 🐵🚀🌕
What’s better than ApeSwap & BANANA going cross-chain? 🤔 Going cross-chain with the official support of Polygon!
And you know if we are going to expand we are going to do it right, the ApeSwap way. ❤️ That's why we recruited ten of our family members to launch with us, creating an entire DeFi ecosystem on Polygon. 💪
The Cross-Chain Details ⛓
Cross-chain assets have been around for a while, so it’s only our natural evolution to go multi-chain.
While planning the future of ApeSwap we saw this trend clearly and have full intention of remaining on the cutting edge of DeFi innovation.
Our vision is to provide the best trading experience for all investors, traders, and of course, Apes, so with this first expansion we are laying the groundwork to become a premier multi-chain DEX.
To kick things off we will be bridging one Banana per block into Polygon to incentivize liquidity on the new chain!
We have also obtained support from the Polygon team to help us with this expansion, including MATIC farming rewards! We couldn’t be more excited to continue to grow the Jungle with them as a new partner. This is the first of many steps to ensure we build the best decentralized exchange we possibly can for you, the ApeSwap Family!
Who’s Expanding with Us 🌴
We have an all-star lineup joining us on this journey, many of which are projects you apes are already familiar with from our rapid expansion. 🥳
