Liquidity staking is a technique used to incentivize liquidity providing to one or more AMM’s trading pairs. Liquidity providers can stake their LP tokens on specific staking pools in order to receive an additional reward over the fees that they accrue from the AMM. A good percentage of the liquidity provided to AMMs today is incentivized through staking.

Impermax is a lending protocol that allows the use of LP tokens as collateral. The main limitation with Impermax was that in some cases users were forced to choose between either staking an LP token or using it on Impermax as collateral…

Indirect Liquidity Providing on QuickSwap

This week on Thursday, June 17th, Impermax will launch its Indirect Liquidity Providing service on the Polygon network supporting the Quickswap DEX.

For QuickSwap users, Impermax now brings the ability to earn yields from liquidity providing with no impermanent loss.

What Does TVL Stand For?

With…

Impermax’s vision is to become the market leader in financial services for liquidity providers.

With our first app release, Impermax made a strong start in unlocking the value that liquidity providers are holding on Uniswap. Upcoming releases will improve and expand Leveraged Yield Farming and other benefits across all the biggest AMM platforms and networks.
