Minswap is a Decentralized Exchange (DEX). The purpose of a DEX is to enable permissionless trading of token pairs. For each swap, a fee is taken, which goes to the Liquidity Providers (LPs). Anyone can provide Liquidity as well, hence profits are decentralized. Minswap is a community-centric DEX, in that our tokens are fairly distributed, without any private or VC investment. Minswap has pioneered several ideas in the Cardano ecosystem such as the FISO model (touted as the fairest ISO model in the Cardano community) the MINt Token, and has continued developing several value adding features.


  • Community First: MIN tokens are distributed fairly to protocol participants and Liquidity Providers, who can participate in governance and vote democratically on protocol changes.
  • Innovation-Driven: We pioneered ideas such as the FISO model, the MINt token, or the Liquidity Bootstrapping Event and plan to continue doing so with further novel initiatives.
  • Launchpool: Minswap is permissionless, meaning anybody can list tokens without needing KYC. For promising Cardano projects that want to use some of the most potent DeFi primitives to bootstrap their liquidity directly on the Minswap platform, we have designed the Minswap Launch Bowl.
  • Stake Pool Operators Support: Minswap supported SPOs through the FISO and plans to continue doing so with a community-oriented ADA delegation policy, incentivizing SPOs in our batching solution Laminar, and by enabling automatic native token fees conversion (Babel Fees).


Token Distribution

78.5% of tokens will be distributed to the community, of which 70% are reserved to reward LPs, ensuring our community of users is maximally rewarded, not speculators and insiders.
