This episode of the LEO Roundtable podcast was streamed live yesterday. We talked about the basics of Ethereum and explored the UI of Uniswap while preparing for the upcoming wLEO launch event.

wLEO represents our community’s breakout into the world of crypto beyond just the Hive eco chamber. Hive provides a lot of opportunities and the blockchain technology is unparalleled in terms of allowing our community blogging interface to serve on-chain content and distribute LEO tokens to users who create and curate that content.

With that said, the Hive-token protocol that we’re using doesn’t allow us to be easily listed on exchanges outside of Hive. This is why the wLEO bridge is so valuable to our community. The wLEO bridge allows us to step outside of Hive and get listed on nearly any exchange in the crypto space — this is because wLEO is a LEO token equivalent (essentially acting as a pegged token) and is built using the ERC20 token protocol on Ethereum.

ERC20 is the most commonly used token protocol in crypto and will allow us to easily get listed on Decentralized Exchanges and even Centralized Exchanges moving forward. This is one of the many long-term goals behind the LeoFinance project and we’re finally seeing it come to fruition. In the latest roundtable podcasts, we’ve been meeting to talk about the upcoming launch and prepare ourselves and everyone else for what’s about to happen as our community unleashes itself onto the world of crypto through Ethereum.

Haha nice work man.

I am in the middle of a basketball game but I will make sure to rewatch that in its entirety.

Love being a part of the conversation as something launched so long ago evolves and progresses.

Such a cool success story in the making.

Awesome :) we cover a lot in terms of basic DeFi/ETH/Uniswap mechanics. All important stuff to learn as our community gears up for the wLEO launch.

The goal is to keep the cameras rolling so we can get as much content out ahead of the launch as possible. As hive users, it can be tough to venture out to other blockchains, but I do see a lot of value in it. Glad you’re here and have always stuck around to be a crucial member of our collective story 🦁

You guys are playing a dangerous game.
I respect the honestly though.
It's the lure of gains.

Exciting stuff!!

My vote is we wait another 3 ish weeks :-) I gotta get more cash for ETH!!

Seriously though. One thought. It seems like we are really firing on all cylinders at this point, but one aspect that really holds the most long term potential is to reach out and drag wLEO buyers to the platform. I know ya'll have thought of this already. Just saying.

More contributers and interactors in the community would be a self-feeding cycle. Any good onboarding thoughts?
