Switcheo, the first decentralized crypto exchange on the Neo blockchain, which also now allows trading of EOS, Ethereum tokens, today announced an equity investment by Neo Eco Fund, underscoring Neo’s strong community commitment through its EcoBoost initiative.
Since its launch in May 2019, the Neo EcoBoost program has played a key role in accelerating the growth and development of the Neo ecosystem by providing entire life-cycle support for projects and developers, thus showcasing Neo’s community-centric ethos.
“We are delighted to announce this timely partnership as it is an exciting time for Switcheo with several new projects in the pipeline. With Neo’s support, this strategic partnership will further strengthen the Neo community and set the stage for Switcheo’s up-and-coming decentralized finance products.”
– CEO of Switcheo, Ivan Poon
SWTH Token Support
In addition to investing in Switcheo, Neo is also committed to supporting the Switcheo token (SWTH) by financing the redemption of SWTH tokens for GAS tokens to further boost confidence in the SWTH token by funding the SWTH/GAS market on Switcheo Exchange. Moreover, the price of SWTH will be supported with a price floor at a rate to be determined at a later date.
At the same time, Switcheo will deepen its support for the Neo ecosystem by allowing trading fees on Switcheo Exchange to be paid using GAS tokens instead of SWTH tokens. With this change, Switcheo will burn SWTH tokens off the market manually from fees collected every quarter. This new mechanism will provide traders with greater transparency as specialized trackers will no longer be needed to monitor burnt SWTH tokens.
“Neo and Switcheo are aligned in their vision of supporting an open community that builds upon the decentralized ethos of blockchain technology. As the preferred decentralized exchange on the Neo blockchain, Switcheo will continue to work in tandem with Neo in maintaining a robust developer ecosystem.
