It's Uptober time! And it has been an amazing journey so far since we launched the project in June. The accomplishment is absolutely amazing, especially in the bear market.
We are truly honored to have such a derp-mazing community that fully supports our mission and what we do to achieve that. We have come a long way derps! Let’s take a look back at what we have achieved so far and what is waiting for us in the near future!
DerpDEX’s Milestones since Launch in June 2023
DerpDEX’s Roadmap 2.0
Q4 2023: Development Roadmap
Q1 - Q4 2024: Coming next in derpzone
On June 1, 2023, DerpDEX officially announced its upcoming launch on the zkSync network as the most meme-able DEX! We started strong with the vision of being the leading concentrated liquidity AMM on zkSync, providing superior performance for traders and LPs with all-in-1 DeFi infrastructure tools.
Let’s step back and review what we have achieved in June. 👀
DerpDEX has reserved 1,000 OG roles for early supporters of DerpDEX. We received overwhelming demand and the roles were gone in 3 hours only!
As a token of appreciation, OG Roles are eligible for airdrop (1% total allocation).
We have opened up more OG Roles for the early community supporters but there will be only around 3000 OG ever existing. So hurry up to get them before TGE.
Again we partnered with Galxe to do an onchain campaign for users to interact with DerpDEX’s testnet. We gained more than 25,000 testnet users in 2 weeks!
This Testnet phase helped us fix problems and bugs thru the feedback from derps before proceeding to mainnet.
The launch of DerpDEX was totally remarkable! We gained a lot of traction, and a lot of community support and project highlights. During the third quarter of this month, we continued our goal and achieved a lot more.
Let’s review the key achievements and highlights:
In July ,DerpDEX officially launched its Beta Mainnet on zkSync!
Beta mainnet helped us to bootstrap the initial TVL and real users (more than 2700 users interacted with DerpDEX during this phase). We also took the feedback from the users to further improve on the UI and product.
The genesis campaign is a 69-day campaign with $650,000 worth of token airdrop for liquidity providers ,top traders and even top losers. Together with this, we have prepared a booster campaign launched on Galxe that offers a total pool of $69000 worth of prize.
With the campaign, we have achieved amazing results and growth:
Accumulative trading volume exceeded 8 million
Average daily trading volume at 100-500k
Monthly active user: 5000+
We also introduced an innovative feature called Zap-to-earn to help simplify the trading experience. Our users love it as now you can add liquidity to a pool using only a single token that you have.
DerpDEX’s 1st incubated meme coin: zkDerpina
Incubated by DerpDEX as the 1st meme-token launched on 24 July 2023.
Token price went up 22x within 3 hours after launch, with 0 token dump as there are no insiders, no team token, no VC allocation and It is just initial buyers taking small profits.
Token prices are healthily trading around 10-15x of the opening price.
Contract is renounced and liquidity is locked for 3 months.
This successful token launch has showcased the uniqueness of DerpDEX that anyone can also launch their own mamecoin on DerpDEX! Read this for more details.
Since the inception of DerpDEX on zkSync, we've recognized the wisdom in embracing a multi-chain approach. Our initial strategy revolved around nurturing zkSync's ecosystem and navigating the exciting path of launching the $DERP token before venturing into the realm of a distinct layer 2 chain.
With the expansion to Base chain, we were able to capture the memecoin users and degens in the native L2 chain. We also developed a unique feature to ride on the FriendTech heat on Base! Find out more here .
We started this quarter big and strong, as we in opBNB - another chain for us to spread more innovation and derpiness to their users!
After a few days live on opBNB, we have achieved amazing results already!
The multi-chain development before TGE never stops, as we continue the journey opBNB! We have launched a campaign to invite the opBNB Genesis NFT Holders with a total of $100,000 worth of airdrop. The campaign has received massive adoption and is now trending number 1 on Galxe!
While we grow, we have also partnered with over 50+ projects & protocols as we believe collaboration is key in the web3 world. Some notable partnerships we created are with Wormhole, XY Finance, Galxe, Gecko Terminal, Eralend, ZKNS Domains, Star protocols , NFTFeed, MintBase, Basebot, KaratDAO, veSync, and more!
