Traditionally, Leverage or Margin Trading has had a very niche group of users who had to be highly skilled and technically sound in their knowledge of the market in order to reap its benefits. With the creation of cryptocurrencies, this scenario has seen a significant change as almost all major crypto exchanges now offer the option of margin trading.

With the steady growth in DeFi (Decentralised Finance), this too has changed. What was originally a centrally controlled system wherein platforms and exchanges controlled and leveraged their trading rules, liquidation procedures, assets, and capital lending rates, is giving way to a decentralized system lead by the community.

Driven by this mission, WOWSwap is a decentralized exchange run by the community, one that allows users to benefit from its protocol and make profits through leveraged trading. Its community-driven approach gives the user an opportunity to create and operate common liquidity pools, liquidation procedures, and much more.

What is leveraging?

Leverage Trading refers to borrowing funds in order to increase a trader’s position size and market exposure, therefore, increasing its profitability. A trader’s initial investment is called the ‘margin’ and is the collateral used in case the asset’s market price moves in the opposite direction. Margin trading lets the traders benefit from both bullish and bearish markets by opening both long and short positions.

How WOWSwap works?

WOWSwap’s platform caters to the most liquid tokens on PancakeSwap with up to 5x leverage. These tokens include ETH, WOW, CAKE, BTCB, ATOM, AUTO, DOT, YFI, UNI, SFP, ALPHA, TWT, SXP, LINK, ADA, SPARTA, BRY, BAND, FIL, LIT, LTC, JULD, UNFI, BIFI, BDO, XVS, BSCX, and zSEED. Later on, the community will have the chance to vote on the addition of any more tokens for trading on their website.

WOWSnap

WOWSwap’s mainnet app was launched on the Binance Smart Chain on top of PancakeSwap DEX. As one of the main problems faced while trading is a high gas price, WOWSwap solves this and charges a minimal gas fee for transactions.  It is available on Binance Smart Chain on top of PancakeSwap DEX and on Polygon on top of quickswap DEX.

The platform allows individuals to provide liquidity to BNB and BUSD on BSC network and MATIC, ETH and USDC on polygon network. This allows traders to use these funds in order to finance their leveraged swaps on decentralized automated market makers (AMM). The individuals earn a passive income from traders who pay an Hourly Interest Rate on the amount. The platform is also all set to start liquidity mining from the end of April.

Proxy tokens, Liquidations, and Portfolios

In the case of liquidity providers, their tokens need to be converted from BNB/BUSD to ibBNB/ibBUSD, which are interest-bearing tokens in order to add liquidity to the pools.

While buying a token with leverage on the platform, a user is given information regarding the borrowed amount and the Hourly Interest Rate (HIR) for it. After a swap is done, ‘proxy tokens’ (ERC-20 transferable tokens) are provided to the user which is pegged 1:1 to the real tokens.

These ‘proxy tokens’ are then changed into real tokens for BNB/BUSD on PancakeSwap to repay the loan to the liquidity pool and the remaining amount is then transferred to the user.

The protocol charges 5% of net profits made by the traders and divides it equally between their insurance fund and expenditure to buy and burn WOW tokens. The users are aided through this extensive process, through the interface used by the WOWSwap platform which is minimal and relatively easy to use even for amateurs.

As Liquidation events cannot happen on their own on the WOWSwap platform, a margin caller needs to trigger it. If a successful liquidation occurs, the margin caller would receive a liquidation reward which is currently set at 5% but can be changed later.

The Portfolio section provides extensive details about the user’s transactions and other details such as its current position size, its value, debt, HIR, and position health.

Instant governance model

As mentioned earlier, the WOWSwap protocol is managed by a decentralized community of token holders and their delegates. These delegates control the addition or deletion of tokens by voting and presenting proposals, which are both executable codes. Users can delegate and/or receive their voting rights from other users. Once a user proposes voting on a proposal, it remains open for 3 days and once a majority is achieved, a 24-hour timelock kicks in after which the proposal is broadcasted to the network.

Their team is currently working on the platform’s governance and the interface for adding proposals and voting is in the pipeline and scheduled to be launched very soon.

ICO and public sale

The WOW token public sale which took place on the 25th of February 2021 achieved the record for the fastest ICO sale in the world. The backers of the token sent over $11 million worth of BNB (Binance Coin) to the token sale smart contract and therefore, the $700k hard cap closed within just 9 seconds of the sale’s opening.

A BSC Scan of the transaction history of the public sale contract showed that over 1000 unique wallets participated in the sale, but only 111 buyers succeeded in acquiring the token. For the 954 remaining users, the platform later rolled out a special rewards program.

Tokenomics and distribution

The WOW token has a limited supply of 1,000,000 tokens which would be used for the protocol’s governance and community rewards system. Currently, the WOWSwap token has a market cap of $7.71 million dollars with its current price at $29.78 dollars for a token at the time of writing.

The community tokens will be distributed to the users over a span of 18 months in the following manner,

  • 200,000 tokens will be reserved for community contests, marketing activities, bounty campaigns, white hacking rewards, and airdrops
  • 200,000 tokens will be distributed to liquidity providers
  • 100,000 will be distributed to leveraged traders
  • 50,000 tokens to be distributed to margin callers

Source: WowSwap

In the public sale, 230,000 WOW tokens were up for sale with a 3-month lock-up period. The funds collected from the public token sale would be used to provide initial liquidity for leverage traders and accelerate the development of the protocol.

While 90% of the total funds would be used to provide liquidity on PancakeSwap, protocol development, marketing, BNB lending, and audit, the remaining 10% would be kept as a reserve for further expansion of the protocol.

Final Word

WOWSwap seeks to bring the concept of Leveraging and DeFi together and presenting it in a simple yet effective manner for its users. The platform set records even before its actual launch with its ICO, proving that it is building an enthusiastic user base.

With its instant governance model, it is looking to create a community-driven platform where each user will have a say in the implementation of its proposals. While lenders can earn a passive income by becoming a liquidity provider, borrowers can make profits and save up on gas. In this way, WOWSwap is looking to offer something to everyone.

WOWSwap also has an active Telegram, Medium, and Twitter to get in touch with its users.

DOGE Co-founder Reveals the Reasons Behind its Price Rise

Billy Markus, who created Dogecoin back in 2013 with Jackson Palmer has taken to Twitter (where he dwells as “Shibetoshi Nakamoto”) to share his take on the recent Dogecoin rally.

According to him, the Dogecoin market is hugely driven by emotion and sentiment. The price of DOGE in the market is moved by people’s decisions, made for their own personal reasons.

What is Moving the Price of Dogecoin in the Market? Co-founder Answered

Billy Markus developed the meme-coin DOGE back in 2013 as an imitation of Bitcoin back. The Dogecoin that was changing hands as low as $0.0026 last month is now sitting at $0.61. According to the statistics, DOGE is the fourth digital asset of the market. 

In his recent interviews with Bloomberg the founder and CEO of Galaxy Digital, Mike Novogratz, stated that,

“Dogecoin may be favored by millennials and generation Z since buying it is similar to showing the middle finger to the system. This is reminiscent of the craze over Gamestop shares.”

However, he cautioned against Dogecoin, stating that 

“There are no development upgrades for this coin, nor is there any money from financial institutions going into it.”

DOGE Wave Take Further Rise This Year

DOGE has always been seen as Elon Musk’s favorite. A significant price surge can be seen due to Elon Musk Tweets.  

The “DOGE influencer” was the first one to call it the “people’s currency,” then promised to put “literal DOGE on the literal Moon” via SpaceX. 

From the latest, Musk is preparing to make an appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” i.e. Today this weekend.

According to reporter Kate Rooney

“The newest DOGE investors particularly see Musk’s tweets as the main price pumper of the meme-coin. DOGE is making its way into online gambling markets as people are making bets about what Musk will talk about on SNL and whether it will be his favorite Shiba-Inu cryptocurrency.”

JOSÉ FONTE AND EDER BECOME THE FIRST FOOTBALLERS IN THE WORLD TO LAUNCH NFTs

EURO 2016 champions have produced unique and authentic digital art pieces
to be auctioned online starting today
Lisbon, 7 May 2021 – European champions and Portuguese Internationals José Fonte
and Éder are the first two footballers worldwide to launch their own Non-Fungible
Tokens (NFTs), creating unique and authentic digital art pieces that will be auctioned
online. The two NFTs were made in partnership with Jedi3 and part of the revenues
raised through the auction will revert to social and community support. The creations
will be auctioned on the well-known platform of NFTs, OpenSea, starting today and
can be found here:
https://opensea.io/collection/eder-lopes-2016-european-champion
https://opensea.io/collection/jose-fonte-2016-european-champion
The creative concept of both pieces was developed by the athletes themselves together with
the project Jedi3. Fonte focused his illustration on his career path and all the obstacles he
had to overcome in order to become an international player and win EURO 2016. Eder’s
piece is a digital creation of the boot he used to score the winning goal for Portugal in the
final of the European Championship against France.
In this first launch, there will be:
● 10 limited digital editions of Éder’s right boot that scored the Euro final goal, in a
digital 3D version;
● 10 limited digital editions of an illustration that represents the path followed by José
Fonte until the title in the Euro;
● Furthermore, a “masterpiece” of Éder’s boot that will give the right to the digital item
plus the real boot he used to score the winning goal in the final.

The auction started today on the Open Sea platform and will last for a week and all
transactions will be made in Ethereum cryptocurrency. Fonte and Eder follow in the footsteps
of NFL and NBA players who have already participated in the creation of NFTs.
José Fonte talked about the launch: “Everybody follows what is going on in the US with
NFTs, and I’ve been following it too for the last few months. Some of my favourite people are
exploring this new world, this new connection with the fans. I tried to explore this connection
with the fans, to give them something that is new and authentic. This creation means a lot to
me, because the story of it is about my career, about what I’ve been through in my life. It’s
about resilience, showing determination and never giving up and showing that anything is
possible with hard work. I’m excited. I want the fans to be open minded. First of all, it’s for a
good cause as well. Part of the money will go into some foundations and institutions that we
want to help. We want to give something back to the
people, which is really important to us.”
Eder showed all his enthusiasm about this project: “It’s a fantastic world. It’s been booming
in the US because of the NFTs that have been created in the NBA. José Fonte and I expect
to be the first football players to launch an NFT in the world. An NFT is unique, has value for
the person that creates it, it’s art and I think that has a lot of value for the fans. We’ve
participated in a big victory at the Euros and I know our fans will be amazed by a creation
like this. My creation means a lot to me and to Portugal. It’s the boot that scored the winning
goal at the final and it’s really important to me. It’s something that the football fans will
appreciate. Another important reason is helping an institution that we will give part of the
funds to. It’s something important to do and a big step.”
Part of the profits from the auction of each of the pieces will revert to charities and
community institutions. Éder will benefit PAJE – platform of support to young former foster
children, association of which he is godfather and partner. Regarding José Fonte, the focus
will be the community of Penafiel, where he was born, by donating funds to the local
Firefighters corporation, where his grandfather was the 2nd Commander, to the ERPI –
Estrutura Residencial para Idosos de Penafiel, and the APADIMP – Associação de Pais e
Amigos dos Diminuídos Mentais de Penafiel. The Lille central defender will also donate
funds to support football in Portugal to institutions yet to be defined.
For João Matos Cruz, from Jedi3, “this project is born from the fusion of diverse interests of
a group of friends: football, blockchain and digital art. In a context where the technology of
distributed registration allows to protect, authenticate and promote, for example, artists’
work, or relevant moments, we felt it was time to give visibility, in the digital world, to two
iconic figures in the history of Portuguese football: Éder Lopes and José Fonte. In the first
case, through the boot with which he scored the goal of the Euro 2016 final, as a
masterpiece of a moment of collective transcendence. In the case of José Fonte, illustrating
his path that was also one of overcoming, of constant struggle against adversity, until the
final consecration as European champion.”
What are NFTs?
A non-fungible token (NFT) is a type of cryptographic token on a blockchain, which
represents a unique asset. They can be fully digital assets or tokenized versions of
real-world assets. As NFTs are not interchangeable with each other, they can act as proof of
authenticity and ownership in the digital realm.
There are numerous success stories of sportsmen or sports-related individuals who have
launched their own NFTs in recent months in the US. The mythical quarterback Tom Brady
will even launch a platform for the creation and sale of NFTs called “Autograph” where he
promises to bring together several well-known names from the music, fashion and
entertainment industries. Those who have already launched their own NFT’s include Patrick
Mahomes, the 2020 NFL champion and Zion Williamson, one of the NBA’s most promising
stars.
The value of an NFT derives from the story that is told, what gave rise to the NFT and who
actually issued it. It is a certificate of authenticity per se, identified by a unique,
non-falsifiable “contract address”.
The technology used for this purpose, blockchain, thus allows a direct and decentralised
interaction between athletes and their digital admirers / followers. In this case, these players
become stars, also, in the digital world, directly launching tokens, whose artistic and
authentic character, guarantees their buyers a unique collector’s item.
