Section 7. Live Swaps Demonstration

Time for a Swap competition between Layer One X, Stargate Finance (a Layer Zero blockchain solution) and Squid (Axelar Network) to demonstrate how X-Swap is a faster and more cost-effective choice compared with the competitors.

It has demonstrated the total cost variations between the different platforms. It is important to stress the crucial role of liquidity in ensuring smooth and efficient token swaps, underscoring how L1X aims to streamline these processes.

Sneak peek at a new feature: a savvy tracker tool designed to keep an eye on transaction progress in real time. It's a part of L1X's broader strategy to fine-tune transaction routes and speeds, pushing the envelope on efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Section 8. L1X Multichain Balancer Pool

L1X Multichain Balancer Pool is being released on February 21st, and will revolutionize the way we think about liquidity pools in the blockchain space. A two-phase approach that's set to change the game.

  1. Showcasing Multi-chain Balancer Pool Functionality: The Liquidity Bootstrap event aims to demonstrate the capabilities of our multi-chain balancer pool to both developers and users.
  2. Creating Liquidity for Cross-Chain Swaps: By providing liquidity in the form of USDC/L1X and USDT/L1X pairs, we intend to support seamless cross-chain swaps between Binance and Ethereum networks, leveraging the most utilised chains and tokens for bridging purposes.

The decision to utilise Liquidity Bootstrap Protocol (LBP) despite having single staking options is rooted in our objective to attract a larger pool of liquidity. Additionally, participants opting into the Liquidity Bootstrap will be incentivised with rewards.

Going more in deep to the liquidity bootstrap program. Mark the calendar for the upcoming liquidity bootstrapping event starting on the 21st of February. This event isn't just about boosting liquidity; it's a gateway to early access and rewards for those proactive enough to join the L1X Discord community, where announcements will be made first.

Community Questions

Q: How does L1Dex work into the Liquidity Bootstrap and the Multichain balancer pool?

A: The balancer pool is an example of the capabilities the L1Dex will have. Our aim is to handover the single staking and balancer pools to L1DEX once they have completed their testing.

Q: Will there be bootstrapping for multi-chain gas token pools during the PoX phase, or is it limited to stablecoins?

A: Initially, we're focusing on stablecoins due to their frequent use and significance in bridging across blockchain ecosystems. Over time, the balancer pool will accept any token from connected chains, provided there's an existing liquidity pool on the native chain. The first step is showcasing this through a liquidity bootstrap.

Q: How does Impermanent Loss affect these LP Pools?

A: The value of LP tokens will fluctuate with the L1X coin's market value. We advise conducting thorough due diligence, considering factors like Impermanent Loss versus LP value gain, alongside additional rewards.

Q: Why aren’t NFT sales used to fill LP? What are these funds utilized for?

A: NFT sales are allocated to developing the L1XApp, distinct from the L1X protocol. These funds support app development and features. Both the L1XApp and protocol aim for decentralized ownership, with NFTs providing ownership, revenue-sharing, and governance rights.

Q: Is there a risk of insufficient participant diversity in the liquidity pool if one individual contributes $500k?

A: This initiative focuses on providing sufficient liquidity for swaps to demonstrate L1X's capabilities, rather than participant spread within the pool.

Q: Upon claiming LP and daily distributions, where are they stored?

A: L1X coins are claimable exclusively from the L1X Wallet. LP Tokens can be claimed via both Metamask and the X Wallet, though we recommend using the X Wallet for simplicity. LP Tokens are immediately tradeable upon claim.

The AMA session with Layer One X was a comprehensive deep dive into the functionalities, technologies, and future directions of the X-Talk technology.
