Elrond rising on Maiar’s US$1.29-bn incentive boost: How to buy EGDL?
EGLD launched its initial exchange offering on Binance in June 2020. EGLD is used to pay transaction fees and DApps deploying costs on the network and rewards for various contributions to the network.
Maiar said the incentives will be “denominated in MEX” – or US$1.29 billion worth of Maiar DEX utility and governance (MEX) tokens.
A total of US$282 million will be distributed to Maiar DEX users in the first month. The users will provide liquidity in EGLD, MEX, and USDC tokens.
Beniamin, Lucian Mincu, and Lucian Todea had co-founded Elrond in 2017 as part of efforts to solve the problem of blockchain scalability. The Maiar DEX is a fully community-owned platform developed by Elrond Network to bring DeFi adoption to an internet scale.
The EGLD coin can be traded on Binance, Huobi Global, Manadala Exchange, FTX, and OKEx.
