O3 Labs launched its O3 Swap module on the Neo N3 blockchain. O3 Swap works by combining liquidity from single-token staking pools with liquidity aggregated from decentralized exchanges. A liquidity pool for fUSDT was made available on launch, along with swapping for NEO, GAS, fUSDT, FLM, bNEO, GM, TIPS, DOGER, and CANDY. Neo and O3 Labs are planning various marketing campaigns and community engagement events to celebrate the milestone. Currently, O3 Labs is running a cross-chain airdrop campaign where 50 participants will share from a pool of tokens equivalent to US $2,000, plus 50 Blockchain Cuties NFTs.
