🌿 Cultivation Club

Governance is the keystone of any healthy DeFi community. The Cultivation Club is the first of many mechanisms created to utilize the wealth of knowledge that exists within our ranks, to create a transparent and democratic process for the selection and ongoing management of the platform’s Community Farms.

Latest farm launches from the Cultivation Club:

  • $BLZZ / $AVAX
  • $CRA / $AVAX

The club has been a hive of activity, with a suite of new threads opened to discuss the numerous projects requesting a Community Farm allocation. If you’re not yet a member, the Cultivation Club Circular (our governance newsletter) will be published next Sunday with further updates.

If you would like to apply directly for a Community Farm, you can now do so via our website on the footer of the home page.

Avalanche Party Animals

A huge congratulations to the Avalanche Party Animals. After a whirlwind sellout, the Party Mansion is now full. This unlocks the APA roadmap extension, a partnership with Trader Joe, which will see the project buy $100k worth of $JOE to stake and lock in xJOE for one year. This is great news for APA owners, as the underlying JOE tokens will appreciate in value from the platform’s lending and borrowing fees.

Growth DeFi Launch + Airdrop

Trader Joe is excited to be partnering with Growth DeFi after their recent cross-chain launch on Avalanche. This new partnership will enable JOE users to utilise self-paying loans to borrow and leverage their JLP and xJOE. As part of the launch of Growth DeFi’s yield optimizer (WHEAT) and borrowing/lending protocol (MOR) on Avalanche, the protocol will be conducting an airdrop of their governance token, GRO, to xJOE holders.
