ZilSwap was launched by Switcheo Labs in pawtnership with Zilliqa in October 2020 (YES, WE ARE TURNING 1 SOON!). Earlier this year, ZilSwap underwent a brand refresh exercise that saw an update to the brand's logo, colours, and tone, not forgetting an entire UI facelift that included all-new and improved Dark and Classic themes.
Since then, ZilSwap has pushed out multiple new features including ZILO — a platform for up-and-coming projects to offer initial liquidity on their ZRC-2 tokens. Past offerings have seen massive success with the Zilliqa community banding together in support — $STREAM and $BLOX were oversubscribed by 14x and 6.5x respectively, and a third ZILO, $DMZ, is set to happen on 6 September, 9am UTC. With even more features in the pipeline, ZilSwap is well-positioned to further strengthen its position as THE DeFi hub of Zilliqa.
We know you've been waiting! ZilSwap's very own NFT Marketplace was announced as part of the project's roadmap this year. Built to capture the fast-growing NFT audience, the ZilSwap NFT Marketplace will begin rolling out basic features and undergo subsequent iterations post-launch. The platform is also set to support $ZWAP as an NFT trading currency!
Apart from giving users the ability to buy and sell NFTs, the ZilSwap NFT Marketplace will also include a cross-chain bridge functionality that will allow NFTs on Ethereum to be bridged over to Zilliqa (and vice-versa)! This is in line with ZilSwap's belief in building an inclusive ecosystem for all users and projects no matter where they are from. #strongertogether
More details on the marketplace will be shared on Twitter in due time.
We're giving you even more reasons to celebrate! Ahead of the ZilSwap NFT Marketplace launch, Switcheo Labs and Zilliqa will be celebrating their 1-year pawtnership with the release of The Bear Market (TBM) — a standalone generative NFT collection of 10,000 beary adorable bears! TBM will also be the very first collection available for trading when the ZilSwap NFT Marketplace goes LIVE.
On 15 September 2021, 9,800 of these bears will be made available for public minting on thebear.market. Minting fee will be in $ZIL so please have your wallets loaded and ready as they're expected to sell out fast!
