Updates & Announcements

As the features are procedurally rolled out, you will notice small changes to the level platform UI. By the end of June, most of the features will be complete - and UI V2 will be merged with V1, completing a fully seamless integration of both BNB Chain and Arbitrum on LEVEL.

We will continue to inform users about these deployments as they happen.

Users on both chains are already enjoying the recently deployed trading incentives — loyalty rewards and trading ladder — which are both very popular features with our platform since they launched.

Articles covering our Arbitrum expansion were also published on Yahoo Finance and Cointelegraph in the last week!

Birthday celebration!

To help celebrate, we are hosting a giveaway on our twitter account, Its easy to enter, and entrants have the chance to win $50 in LVL tokens from the $500 prize pool, check it out!

NFT Drop Information

The success LEVEL has enjoyed so far wouldn't have been possible without the amazing support from our user community. To celebrate our initial strides towards becoming a cross-chain liquidity marketplace, we're planning to launch a unique utility-based NFT, a first of its kind.

These special items will be reserved exclusively for LEVEL's community, with distribution determined retroactively based on past interactions with our protocol on both Arbitrum and BNB Chain.

There will be three categories corresponding to the three main facets of LEVEL:

🦺 Stock Broker’s VestEarned through proving yourself as a trader. The life blood of any financial hub, a Trader needs to look the part at his desk.

🔨 Auctioneer’s Hammer A key group of mechanisms at LEVEL, Auctions serve to widen the reach of the ecosystem as a whole. Embody the power of the Auctioneer with their Hammer.

 Governance Updates

21st June: New rounds of strategic investment

This Dao Proposal was to ask for the LEVEL DAO approval for a new series of strategic investments. The first being a 9-figure asset management company looking to acquire a $20m stake in the project.

This proposal PASSED with a 99.57% approval.

The investment will occur in tranches and subject to the growth of the protocol along with the platforms underlying liquidity.

On June 22nd, The first Tranche of $2M USDT in exchange for 526,316 LVL tokens (equivalent to $3.8 per LVL) was completed. The price was estimated by 7D TWAP + discount. Similar to previous investors, the $LVL is locked for 6 months and Vested for another 6 months.

All USDT from the investor was deployed to Arbitrum:

  • 30% to LVL/USDT LP

  • 35% to Mezzanine Tranche

  • 35% to Junior Tranche

As always, all investment proceeds are owned by the LEVEL DAO.

Market Watch

The Bitcoin rally continues as it has seen the highest weekly close in the past 12 months, peaking at around $31,400. The price surge was influenced by BlackRock's Bitcoin spot ETF application. If approved, the ETF would allow investors to gain exposure to Bitcoin without directly owning the digital asset.

Nevertheless, the crypto market faces ongoing challenges due to regulatory frameworks, and the market remains intricate and dynamic. It displays indications of optimism, yet remains under intense scrutiny from both regulators and market participants.

Many global macro indicators demonstrate striking resilience, while others warn of an imminent recession. The worldwide economy is undergoing a non-uniform recovery, with China flirting with disinflation, while developed markets are likely to face persistent services inflation due to structural supply factors. More volatility ahead, trader?
