💡 Ecosystem Highlights

AMPE Liquidity Bootstrapping on Zenlink

The $AMPE token has completed its Liquidity Bootstrapping Period (LBP) on Zenlink DEX, marking a major achievement on its journey to public listing. The LBP offers a unique opportunity to acquire AMPE tokens before the official launch on Zenlink DEX. You can participate with either $KSM or $AMPE tokens using Polkadot.js.

AMPE Now Tradable on Zenlink

Following a successful LBP, $AMPE was listed on Zenlink DEX. Liquidity providers can now add $AMPE/$KSM to earn fees and LP token rewards.

Check out our video to help you get familiar with Zenlink’s UI for both executing swaps and providing liquidity for the $AMPE / $KSM pair.
