Axie Infinity launches its decentralized exchange Katana DEX
NFT-based video game Axie Infinity announced the launch of its decentralized exchange, Katana. The announcement triggered a rally in reward token Smooth Love Potion, SLP posted over 100% gains in the past 24 hours. The game’s reward token made a comeback after the drop in price in September 2021.
The SLP token can be used to breed new Axies in the Axie Infinity game. SLP is an ERC-20 utility token compliant with the Ethereum network. SLP can be earned as rewards by Axie Infinity players through battle or adventure mode. SLP can be used to breed new digital pets, known as Axies. It was formerly known as Small Love Potion.
The decentralized exchange Katana was built to reduce the reliance on Axie Infinity and offer liquidity for the ecosystem’s tokens. Katana will act as a liquidity provider once users deposit both sides of a trading pair’s assets into its liquidity pools.
