Airdrop of Liquidity Providers

Airdrop of liquidity providers is a snapshot of the contribution by the AnimeSwap community members on Aptos mainnet.

The snapshot calculation is based on the liquidity provider and their total value locked (TVL) on Aptos mainnet.

The snapshot time range

  • Start: Aptos Mainnet version 2484089, 2022-10-19 03:28:16 UTC, as soon as AnimeSwap protocol launch on Aptos Mainnet
  • End: Aptos Mainnet version 14400000, 2022-10-27 06:02:10 UTC

Each address contribution is calculated by the following formula:

AddressContribution=t=248408914400000AddressTVLΔ(t)Address Contribution = \sum_{t=2484089}^{14400000}AddressTVL\cdot\Delta(t)
TotalContribution=t=248408914400000ProtocolTVLΔ(t)Total Contribution = \sum_{t=2484089}^{14400000}ProtocolTVL\cdot\Delta(t)
TotalANI=9,216,500TotalANI = 9,216,500
AddressANI=AddressContributionTotalContributionTotalANIAddress ANI = \frac{Address Contribution}{Total Contribution}\cdot TotalANI

The validated pair of snapshot is Top 12 TVL pairs at snapshot end time:


For non APT pair, 10 USD equals to 1 APT weight.

There are more than 5000 addresses in upper formula result, most of them are too small contributions (bots or less than $0.1 TVL). The snapshot takes 3.5 APT*day as threshold for minimum contribution.

Finally, the snapshot get 1001 individual addresses for ANI liquidity providers airdrop.

Airdrop of Community Early Backers

AnimeSwap community early backers (Discord OG roles) totally receive 783,500 ANI airdrop, early backers are from many different events before Aptos mainnet, such as Twitter spread, Discord server boost, and anime picture shares.

All the early backers have to bind wallet address with Discord authorization on DApp before airdrop.

  • 500 ANI per OG role
  • 1000 ANI per OG2 role


Staking and Farm

ANI could be used into staking and farm to earn more ANI and other tokens.

Staking and farm are also the main part of emission ANI.

More about staking and farm (MasterChef module) see other documents (write in progress).

Vote and Governance

ANI could be used to vote and governance.

AnimeSwap community members could vote and governance on AnimeSwap protocol and ecosystem with ANI token.

Anyone with more than 0.1% of ANI supply can issue a new proposal, such as:

  • Change pair swap fee for better growth
  • How to distribute emission ANI for farm
  • How to allocate DAO treasury
  • Developing new features
  • Deploy on other chains
