In the last bit of crypto news for today, we have XFai announcing high APR earnings for $XFIT token holders. As per the tweet, users can participate in this liquidity farming by purchasing $XFIT through Uniswap. XFai develops infrastructure and tools to enhance the APY earnings of DeFi tokens. This upgrade helps users to earn three-digit APR with staking of LP tokens in XFai liquidity farming. Further, this would also benefit the current users through an increase in TVL (total value locked). In turn, this raised TVL will increase the dollar value of the $XFIT tokens in the near future, as well as this would help in the long-term growth of $XFIT.
Notably, Uniswap V3 is also coming to empower users with new innovative features and to reduce transaction fees. To uplift the user experience, Unbound Finance launched the first derivative layer on Uniswap V3. Impressively, users can utilize this to add liquidity at distinct ranges and earn NFTs in return.
