Swapping $Nature & Becoming a LP on PancakeSwap to Farm SafariSwap NFTs & More…
What is PancakeSwap
PancakeSwap is a Decentralized Exchange(DEX) based on the popular Binance Smart Chain(BSC). Similar to its predecessors, UniSwap & SushiSwap, which is based on the Ethereum Chain (ETH), PancakeSwap allows trading of different BEP-20 cryptocurrencies utilizing an automated market maker (AMM) model where you trade against a liquidity pool instead of the market. These liquidity pools consist of other users’ deposited funds into the pool which in return, these liquidity providers (LP) will receive LP tokens and earn trading fees.
As to the time of publish, SafariSwap currently has 2 liquidity pools allowing our SafariSwappers to participate as a LP which are, USDT:$Nature & BUSD:$Nature. With the LP tokens received, SafariSwappers can then participate in the faming pool available on our DApp page (https://app.safariswap.io) and farm for Nature Credits (cNature) which can then be used to open our treasure boxes to gain our SafariSwap exclusive NFTs.
With these NFTs, not only can our SafariSwappers exchange them into $Nature using our DApp but we also strongly encourage to hold all these NFTs with our upcoming gamification launch where our SafariSwappers can potentially earn more $Nature by joining in the game.
