With the new collaboration, ApeSwap is set to deploy its smart contracts to Telos, the "fastest EVM" ecosystem. This expansion is part of the Telos Fuel Incentive Strategy.
As such, Telos enthusiasts will be able to use all of the key elements of ApeSwap, including its decentralized exchange (DEX), yield farming module, cross-network bridges and so on.
Six major assets of ApeSwap - BANANA, ETH, BTC, USDT, USDC, TLOS - are available for exchange immediately upon the first common release.
Justin Giudici, CEO of the Telos Foundation, is impressed by the unmatched opportunities unlocked by the upcoming collaboration for both teams:
Many companies in Web 3 want to innovate, few actually do. Ape Swap is one of these few. They are not just a platform but a partner that truly thinks outside the box to offer users innovative solutions. Working with them on their Jungle Bills initiative was a seamless experience and were excited to be on this journey with them.
TLOS airdrop announced to celebrate integration
Julian from ApeSwap also highlights that this integration is of crucial importance for the interaction between the DeFi and TradFi financial systems:
Expanding to Telos will help ApeSwap further bridge the gap between web2 and web3. Through the incredibly fast transaction speeds and low fees available on Telos, we look forward to onboarding the next wave of new DeFi users on ApeSwap Telos
To create a healthy and saturated liquidity ecosystem for the launch of ApeSwap on Telos, 1 TLOS will be airdropped to every GNANA holder.
To be eligible for the distribution, crypto users should hold at least 1 GNANA in their noncustodial wallets by Oct. 20 (20:00 UTC). Users who stake GNANA are also eligible for the distribution.
