Cohort 2: A New Freshmen Class 🎓
This upcoming class of freshmen projects are absolute 🔥 Get to know them a bit better here:
Vox Finance is a decentralized finance (DeFi) project revolving around staking & yield-farming live on both Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain. Created by an independent team of developers, Vox seeks to bring an innovative approach to the new emerging market by providing profitable, high quality services while relying on the voice of the people to bring in community engagement to the underlying protocol.
WeatherBalloon is a deflationary token and ecosystem with strong internal mechanics and tons of deflationary mechanisms beyond the traditional reflect fee. After a testing phase, these features will be implemented across the ecosystem, leading to additional deflation every time the platform is utilized.
In other words, the longer that WeatherBalloon and the ecosystem surrounding it are used, the more deflation will occur; leading to the value being squeezed within the remaining tokens.
TakoDefi is a community-driven yield farming platform that aims to prevail against the many competitors that exist in the DeFi world.
To achieve this, we want to incorporate the best ideas from the DeFi ecosystem while providing a secure platform for our users. For now, its main functionality is being a creative and ingenious yield farming platform, incorporating Competitive Yield farming and hoping to include gambling games, auto-compound and many other crazy things in the future.
Neural Pepe 🐸
Neural Pepe is an NFT collectible project based on the Binance Smart Chain and the first project in the Neural Meme family.
It consists of 7,777 unique tokenized images of Pepe the Frog generated by an AI. By holding a Neural Pepe, you accumulate k̶e̶k̶s̶ $AI tokens on a daily basis, which allows you to choose a name for your Pepe and vote for the next Neural Meme collection. Neural Meme will be centered around AI-generated NFTs and powered by $AI token. $AI will be accepted as payment for the NFTs in the future Neural Meme seasons.
BUIDL Program Graduates 📜
One of the most exciting parts of this program is seeing a project working hard to reach graduation. #BUIDL graduates embody everything we stand for at ApeSwap and work hard to build the Jungle.
Graduating the program is not easy, and takes a lot of hard work 💪 Congratulations to the Koala DeFi for being the first project to make through the program 👏
Koala DeFi 🐨
This project is one of our favorites. Koala decided to migrate their liquidity to ApeSwap before we even created the BUIDL program. They believed in one core concept that Chip (if you don’t know Chip you should… he leads our ApeTV Podcast and is incredibly active in the community — love you Chip ❤️)️ speaks to in this ApeTV podcast, decentralizing Decentralized Exchanges. Koala understood this, saw the hard work ApeSwap was putting in and wanted to join the family.
They have a ton of awesome yield farming features, make sure you check them out if you haven’t! Their community is also incredibly friendly.
