June Round-Up 🤠

June was an unbelievable month for us over at ApeSwap. We branched out multi-chain, partnered with Top 100 tokens, hit all of our June Pledges, and even had our largest IAO yet. 🤯

75mil TVL on Polygon — We officially went multi-chain with our recent launch on Polygon, bringing an all-star cast of 10 partner projects with us. These included three yield farms, a vault, a launchpad, a dashboard, an NFT marketplace, an NFT project, as well as a leveraged trading platform. ♾

BogTools Charting IntegrationCharting is finally here, with both limit orders and Trading View integration now live on ApeSwap. The first of many new features dedicated to bringing the best trading experience to all you Apes. 🛠

Largest IAO Ever — We had our largest IAO ever this past month with HiFi Gaming Society. Thanks to you wonderful apes, we hit 4459% of our BNB Raise and 252% of our $GNANA Raise! HiFi launches its beta on July 2nd and will fully launch later in July. 🕹

678,293 $BANANA Burned— You read correctly, that is the amount of pure $BANANA we burned in June (not the $ amount!) and we are only going up from here. 🔥

42 New Trading Pairs — With too many to name we doubled our goal of bringing you 20 new trading pairs in June. Juicy APRs all around! 🤝

Trading Competitions — We ran our first trading competitions with $DOGE, $SHIBA, $FEG and distributed $13,000 in $BANANA rewards. 💸

AMAs with Obie Dobo — Our Co-Founder extraordinaire Obie Dobo jumped in multiple Telegrams and even our Reddit to answer your questions this month. If you missed his AMA on our Polygon expansion, check it out here. 👷

238 #MonkeMondayz Submissions — Across four meme competitions we partnered with YieldWatch, Moonlight and wished one of our favorite Monkeys and newest team member Ash a Happy Birthday! Y’all brought the heat each week with some of the most hilarious ApeSwap memes we’ve seen yet. 😂

NFA Releases Completed — All of our regular NFA releases were completed with NFT Key and sold out in minutes each Saturday in June. We also saw our largest NFA sale ever happen, worth 54.57 BNB 🤯

4 ApeTV Episodes— Chimpin Chip gave you the deep dive into partner projects KeyFi, Seascape, HiFi and Moonlight. Missed an episode? Go back and catch them all on Anchor or Spotify. 🎧

Chainlink VRF Integration —Our weekly randomized NFA airdrop was legitimized with the integration of Chainlink’s VRF. Each week one random NFA from each tier will win $100 in $BANANA. Chainlink VRF is the industry-leading random number generator (RNG), providing smart contracts an on-chain source of secure randomness that users can verify is tamper-proof. 🔒

😎 #HotDeFiSummer is only heating up and our CMO Rafiki and Social Media Director Diddy have a lot more in store for you Apes. 🔥
