Token Details


  • Max Supply: 20,000,000
  • Symbol: GSWAP
  • Token Type: dApp Governance token


GSWAP will be offered with a fair distribution, with most tokens going to the community in several ways: yield farming rounds, rewards, grants, bounties, reserved funds for developing the ecosystem/platform, and so on. The community will decide what to do with the tokens via voting.

  • 30% 1st Farming round (more rounds to come!)
  • 12.5% Retroactive LP rewards
  • 5% SHROOM token holders grant
  • 22.5% Community Treasury: future farms, bounties and initiatives
  • 20% Foundation Reserve (partnerships, legal, marketing, etc)
  • 10% Development Fund

Farming Details 👨‍🌾 🎮


Farming will start during the coming few days, the exact day will be announced via our social media channels. Stay tuned!

Initially 30% of the tokens (6M GSWAP) will used for this 1st farm. Details:

  • 4,200,000 for Farming Pools
  • 1,200,000 Bootstrapping Pool ( Auction)
  • 300,000 ETH-GSWAP Uniswap Pool
  • 300,000 GSWAP-SHROOM Balancer Pool
  • Rate: 30 tokens per block
  • Estimated duration: 4,200,000/(6,500*25) = ~25.84 days of farming

Numbers have been adjusted respective to the initial proposal to accommodate bigger pools and improved liquidity

In order to encourage holding and ease the selling rate after farming ends, the farming process will implement a series of preventive measures:

  • LP soft-lock: Liquidity will be locked until farming ends, and once LPs unstake the LP token will be returned linearly per block over 3 months period (this is around 1% per day). Via
  • Rewards vesting: Rewards will be claimable only when farming ends. These will also be vested linearly (per block) during 3 months, via Sablier too, another 1% day.

The rationale is that this buys time for the developers to push product updates and grow organically as the ecosystem matures and people realise the protocol’s long-term value.

Farming Pools 🍄

The final farming pools are as follow:

The GSWAP-SHROOM pool will have the highest rewards (6x). It will be a Balancer pool with 5/95 ratio.

GSWAP 🎮 Bootstrapping Pool (Auction)

Due to popular demand by community members a % of pre-issued tokens (1,200,000) will be allocated in a pool in order to kickstart the GSWAP farming pairs. The process will have the following particularities:

  1. The GSWAP tokens will be provided in a sealed-bid auction via
  2. Pooled funds will be recirculated into the ecosystem.

We believe that an auction introduces interesting game theory dynamics that will have a positive impact overall. The community and market will decide the price from the start, and this will be the listing price on Balancer and Uniswap pools.

All the pooled funds (ETH) will be recirculated into the ecosystem. 50% will go to creating the GSWAP-ETH and ETH-GSWAP pools and 50% to the Foundation Reserve (with immediate availability to fund bounties, design, marketing, etc)

SHROOM hodler in action waiting for air(drop) support

SHROOM Token Holders Grant

We will be airdropping 5% of all GSWAP tokens as a reward to the most loyal SHROOM Protocol supporters. Who will be eligible to enter the reward?

1 — Wallets buying SHROOM since this update is published and holding it at the random block snapshot (blocks up to Jan 1st)

2 — Wallets which bought SHROOM since the start, and hold it without selling (including LPs) up to Jan 1st.

In the first week of the new year we will take a random block number and that will be used for the snapshot. So from now on, the more time hodling SHROOM, the bigger the chances to receive a % of the grant.

This will be a big thank you to our most loyal community members.

LP Retroactive Rewards

As indicated in the first section, the LPs helping us bridge liquidity between these 2 farms will get 12.5% of the total GSWAP supply. The rewards will be credited around the same time when the GSWAP farming claiming starts.

These rewards will also be vested linearly over 3 months and will give priority for upcoming farms. We will go into details in the next update!

That’s it for this pre-launch primer. Please stay tuned in our social media! We will release important additional information every day until farming starts. As usual be wary of scams trying to impersonate us, and feel free to reach out if you have doubts! we will try to solve them immediately.

Thanks for your time Shroomies!
