The SmartBCH cheap and fast transactions took down the entry barriers for new DeFi users. I wanted to try an experiment, see how long will take to raise 1000 $MIST tokens. The easiest choice was through the BCH - AxieBCH LP, when the APR was quite high. I paired 0.071 BCH with 8903 AxieBCH and add them in the pool. Why 1000 $MIST? Because I see long term growth potential and 1000 sounds like a good start for the experiment
AxieBCH is the coolest Gaming Guild on SmartBCH, an legit project created by people who are well known members of the Bitcoin Cash community, with clear goals and a roadmap to follow. The AxieBCH gaming guild will have a simple business model and a provision for players to create a play2earn source of income.

The APR when I staked was above 400% and I quickly farmed 241 $MIST, which I staked as xMIST. Having them staked will entitle me to the distribution of the 0.05% of the swap fees. This will continuously compound until I will unstake, moment when the additional MIST from fees will be distributed.
As every LP with high APR, the return slowly reduced day by day. It went down to 236% after one week of staking, with less MIST being farmed. I was half way through after the first week, and the 1000 MIST goal looked easy to acheive.
I kept harvesting the gains and staked them to xMIST few times during the second week, reaching 2/3 after 10 days.
Three weeks after the initial stake... I completed the quest. Took a bit longer then expected, as the APR dropped to 70%. I claimed the last 50 MIST and stake it all.
Didn't pull out the LP and left it until the end of the month. It took 30 days to farm 1114 $MIST and wrapping the experiment feels like a success. The xMIST APR was 9.87, which is pretty high for single token staking.
The plan for the $MIST stash? Just HODL and enjoy the constant growth. DEX native tokens can only improve over long periods of time. as the level of trade will grow at the same pace with SmartBCH DeFi projects.
