Ecosystem (48%)

This is to kickstart TVL and traction through growth strategies:

  • For zkSync, Base and opBNB users for long term support

  • Initial launchpad projects on DerpDEX IDO launchpad

  • Early alpha supporters: testnet & mainnet users, bug bounties, Discord alpha users

  • Genesis campaign for liquidity providers, meme-tokens and traders

  • Referral and business initiatives to secure new TVL, community and project launches

The more DAO, community, LP, trader and upcoming projects are involved with DerpDEX, the more community DERP will grow.

This aligns with derpโ€™s mission; the most memeable DEX, ever and make DERP great again!
