Genius Yield is teaming up with NMKR to mutually support each other’s ecosystems and to mint 5,000 remaining Genius Yield ISPO Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs).
As part of the agreement NMKR will also provide liquidity to the NMKR/ADA pair on the Genius DEX, an order-book decentralized exchange using Concentrated Liquidity set for launching in Q4 2022. NMKR is the native Cardano token of the NMKR platform.
NMKR will permit Genius Yield to use its free-to-use minting API and the payment gateway, NMKR Pay, leveraging the platform’s whitelabel user interface to exclusively mint NFTs for the next 18 months. In return, Genius Yield will provide early access to the Smart Order Router (SOR), an off-chain order matching bot for the Genius DEX.
All Genius Yield ISPO NFTs minted via NMKR will be categorized under "Season 2 ISPO NFTs." They can be traded in public marketplaces, and each NFT has a utility. In the early stage of the Genius Yield project, each NFT shall unlock the GENS staking reward program for vested GENS, the native token for Genius Yield. Going forward, more utilities will be added allowing NFTs to unlock more features in the broader Genius Yield ecosystem.
