How to Get Ready for LEO Dex & CACAO Pool

By idiosyncratic | Idiosyncratic Crypto | 15 Apr 2024

We are almost there, lions. The update on Maya Protocol with v109 will open the doors of cross-chain Hive transactions with other Layer 1 projects such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and many others. The launch event of the new version of Leo Dex is going to happen in line with Maya protocol's Arbitrum integration. With that move, Arbitrum LEO, our token on L2, will be the first token on the Arbitrum network.

While we are taking a firm step into a new and astonishing world of cross - chain operations of ThorChain and the friendly fork called Maya Protocol, there are a couple of things to know and have in our hands.

Let's explain how to get prepared for the era of HIVE and LEO step by step.

Explore & Create Wallet on Maya Protocol

Maya protocol, and Thorschain, has a nice way of securing your assets by encrypting your wallet with a password you set and a txt file (Keystore) that you upload when you want to enter. This is the first option that you may want to choose the " manual way " of securing your assets. The second option is using XDEFI as it is simpler and efficient, too.

As I wanted to utilize 100% potential of the wallet, I chose to use Keystore. However, XDEFI is also a great option to use for different cross - chain operations.

After you set your password and download your Keystore, log out first and try to log in with the password you set and the keystore file that you downloaded. If everything works fine, secure your wallet.

As of writing, the update on Maya protocol has not taken place and the Hive chain has not been added yet.

Have Liquid Coins Deposited

The best side of Maya is that your transactions are between two different Layer 1 networks. Simply, you send your ETH on Arbitrum to a contract that triggers another contract on Hive blockchain to give you HIVE in return.

If you are new to Thor Chain, I suggest you to send small amount of tokens before sending all your allocations. Once you test the platform with $10 - $20 and operations, you can deploy as much as you can after a little pilot testing.

Currently I have my ARB, HIVE and LEO (+ some BNB) ready for the transactions. Since Ethereum Layer 1 may require huge amount of fee, I prefer Thor Chain, Maya and Arbitrum options for my transactions.

By the way, you may consider having some CACAO for the liquidity pool that it will be paired with LEO, as well. This liquidity pool will be the foundation of Hive aggregated transactions.

Consider Providing Liquidity on LEO - CACAO Pool

I enjoy investing in liquidity pools as long as I am familiar with the characteristics of two pairs. Since providing liquidity has visible earning opportunities as well as less known risks such as impermanent loss, it requires some knowledge to handle properly.

CACAO on Coingecko

I am thinking of investing in the pool as I believe the fee earnings may compensate for a possible impermanent loss in the short - term. To be honest, I'm really excited to trade on Maya actively, Hive becomes a part of cross - chain transactions. Even if I do not make a profit from this liquidity position, supporting Hive's multi chain attempts mean something more for me.

Simply, wait for the new version of LEO Dex, it will be live in 24 hours. Make sure you have enough liquid coins, it can be BTC, ARB, LEO, CACO etc. to initiate transactions. Of course, we will have amazing contests and rewards for those who contribute to the growth of Hive ecosystem! Be ready to follow the news by InLEO team and share your feedback with us on Discord.

Glad to be in our ecosystem once again. Another historical moment that we witness 🫡
