Roundtable #20: Speculating on LEO, Fighting Over Thin Sell Orders and More Discussion About wLEO

in LeoFinance •  8 days ago 

▶️ Watch on 3Speak

Another day, another LeoFinance Roundtable about Wrapped LEO (wLEO). The community is gearing up as we approach this week’s launch and the questions keep flowing in.

There are a lot of questions about LEO, our new interface, Wrapped LEO, Uniswap, Ethereum, etc. In these roundtables, we’ve been collecting these questions and exploring them and others live on the show. These have been a big help for a lot of people - especially those who don’t have much experience with crypto outside of the Hive blockchain.

The nuances of Ethereum bring a lot of opportunities for LeoFinance and the LEO token but they also bring a lot of questions. Hopefully these roundtables have helped you as we approach the launch. We’re also clipping the nuggets of content out of each roundtable and posting them on Hive/in the new wLEO repository on LeoPedia.

30:00 - 34:30

People need to listen to how this whole thing work. And maybe reconsider about dumping their coins or if it would to their best interest to stack

Where do you trade wLeo? Is it on HiveEngine? Is HiveEngine the only place?

wLEO is a "wrapper" for LEO. LEO will "locked" on the Hive blockchain, and an equal amount of tokens created on Ethereum. Then it can be reversed, Ethereum wLEO tokens destroyed and the normal LEO unlocked.

So its just LEO, but a way to use it on a different blockchain. And the initial thing they are trying to do is get enough people to provide liquidity so LEO (in its wLEO form) can be traded on uniswap.

It's going to be fun to see what happens on Tuesday, I feel as if LEO does major big boy moves it could be an inspiration for other HIVE tokens to get their act together lol and sort out their tokenomics. It's a weird thing trying to balance price of a token as an incentive, and also balancing that unit bias.

I'm also keen to see how the rewards change now that whales are powering down and creators will now need to provide liquidity especially if this all goes well there's going to be a constant buy pressure.

It will make for a great case study seeing all leo sinks slowly eating at the liquidity too

I enjoyed watching the show with my Sunday morning coffee! Then I took a bunch of tokens off the market after that!

Hi -

Dyou think it's worth putting in a small amount like 4K WLEO to the liquidity pool given the gas fees?

If you deign to answer don't worry I know it won't be financial advice!

And will you be doing an instructional video of how to add to the Liquidity pool for WLEO - like you did for WHive, that was most useful, given that this is all so new.
