Cross-chain ALGO Liquid Governance

Before interacting with the Algo Liquid Governance - xALGO, visit the following page to understand how it works.
xALGO is an interest-bearing asset that brings Algorand governance yield to other chains, allowing for a continuous governance commitment without periodic burning. Thanks to its interest-bearing nature, xALGO is the perfect fit for bridging Algorand Governance to other chains. Currently, Folks Finance’s UI allows xALGO minting and trading on BNB Smart Chain and Avalanche.

Advantages

  • Users can get Algorand Governance rewards without needing to vote or periodically commit, as the voting power is delegated to Algo Liquid Governors, and the locked ALGOs are automatically recommitted by Folks Finance smart contracts.
  • xALGO value grows in value over time due to its interest-bearing structure. Check here to understand how it works.
  • Users can provide liquidity to DEXs’ liquidity pools and get trading fees. Folks Finance’s UI integrates the LI.FI DEX aggregator to simplify xALGO trading directly on the dApp.
