2 June 2023 - 180 Day (LP) Rewards Contract goes live at 41% APR
For those following Threshold Guardian Gaming Guild in 2022 & 2023, you will know that we created our Swap.Hive Liquidity Pool (LP) 2 months after minting our Token. Every 3 months, we re-enable our Liquidity Pool Reward contract and inject Layer-2 Tokens into the pool to enable Liquidity Providers to earn passively while supporting us! However this time we have opted for a 180 Day reward contract, with a Reward APR currently over 41%.
Our Liquidity Pool Rewards
- As mentioned, the SWAP.HIVE:THGAMING Liquidity Pool offers instant swaps of $THGAMING for $SWAP.HIVE, or vice versa. A Rewards Pool contract automatically distributes rewards to Liquidity Providers.
[Above] Providing Liquidity at a 50 / 50 Split of $SWAP.HIVE and $THGAMING will earn you liquidity rewards in all of the rewards tokens listed. Add liquidity yourself on the dCity Beeswap Platform or on the Tribaldex Dieselpools Frontend. There is also now a $PIMP:$THGAMING Pool if you're a @tokenpimp and @thgaming supporter.
Liquidity Pool Contributors
We have been saving up our layer-2 tokens, and—with the help of our partners—have injected our LP with many rewards tokens for this 180-day reward period. Being a gaming guild, we always provide some game-related tokens into our reward contract! At the time of writing, we have added the following tokens into the reward pool:

Guild and $THGAMING Developments
At time of writing, the $THGAMING token is sitting in over 9000 $HIVE wallets including 43 THGAMING Whales : accounts holding more than 100 000 $THGAMING Tokens (Liquid or Staked) not counting LP Liquidity Providers. Many of the whales are influential Hive members and have access to a private channel in our Discord.
Due to strictly controlled distribution mechanisms, only 4.26% of $THGAMING is currently minted (circulating) with plans to ramp up the distribution as use cases increase and global cryptocurrency markets improve.
$THGAMING has been upgraded to allow staking, delegation and curation rewards on hive blogging platform posts. Utilizing the hashtag #thgaming and/or posting in our community will allow your blog posts to accrue $THGAMING curation rewards when upvoted (tipped) by users holding staked $THGAMING.

The PIMP:THGAMING Liquidity Pool
Extract taken from This Post - 1st March 2023
"... After last week's Gamer / Investor meeting in the $PIMP Discord, the @tokenpimp founder @enginewitty put out a proposal for a PIMP:THGAMING Liquidity Pool. There was a resounding vote of YES and thus the LP was created last weekend.
Both $PIMP and $THGAMING only had SWAP.HIVE LPs before this. This LP will help to strengthen the bond between the THGaming and PIMP communities, already closely linked and partnered for almost a year now. Exciting times indeed.
If you haven't attended one of the Pimp Meet ups, join us every Wednesday in the $PIMP Discord at 9am (EST). They often have Game and Tribe founders visiting to chat about their ongoing or up n coming crypto projects! ..."

Many of our guild members have been asking, "What is a liquidity Pool (LP)?" - This post will explain in detail how LP's work and the advantages and risks of using them. If you're experienced with LP's, feel free to skip through the next few paragraphs.
HOW OUR LP WORKS:
$THGAMING and $SWAP.HIVE are added into the pool by 'Liquidity Providers' at a ratio of 50:50—equal dollar values of both tokens—and this liquidity can be withdrawn INSTANTLY at any time.
Furthermore, our LP has also been injected with Hive Engine Layer-2 tokens rewarded to Liquidity Providers every 24 hours for simply holding their tokens within our pool.
The current reward APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is 41%, so you will earn a fair amount of 'Layer-2 Token Profits' for keeping your liquidity in our pool.
The 180-Day Reward Contract will continue to pay out Liquidity Providers for the duration of the smart contract, at which point we will create a new distribution contract and reinject rewards into the pool for the next cycle.
[Above] You can add liquidity to many different pools through TribalDex by visiting https://tribaldex.com/dieselpools. This frontend allows you to :
- SWAP (tokens)
- (show) YOUR POSITIONS (in pools)
- (show your pool) TRANSACTIONS
- ADD or REMOVE LIQUIDITY (instantly)
- CREATE (your own) POOL
- MANAGE (pool) REWARDS (contracts)
What is a Liquidity Pool (LP), and why should you care?
A 'Liquidity Pool' offers Liquidity to a pair of tokens by providing a swap pool (smart contract) where two or more tokens can be traded off of the open market.
The token swap prices in the LP vary if one token is being 'swapped for' more than the other, and this volatility enables traders to purchase tokens at reduced prices. As with all trades, there are risks involved. It's important that you thoroughly research every token and trading strategy before making any purchase / swap trade.
LP DEFINITION: A Liquidity Pool can be thought of as a pot of cryptocurrency assets placed within a smart contract which can be used for exchanges, loans and other applications. In traditional finance (Centralized Finance or CeFi), liquidity is provided by a central organization such as a bank or a stock exchange.
If you'd like to learn more about LP's, please read this excellent Blog Post by Alejandro Gutierrez - Operations Lead at Defactor.
Liquidity Pool Risks:
The first major risk with Liquidity Pools is the fact that token prices may decrease. As with all cryptocurrency investments, the prices of Layer-1 or Layer-2 crypto is dependent on the market, and what goes up may also come down. As we are in a very precarious 'Bear Market' at the moment, it is risky to invest fiat (traditional money) into crypto. We are advising investors to dollar cost average into crypto or use already existing crypto holdings / positions. As the saying goes, "never invest more than you are willing to lose." If you choose to invest, please research the project thoroughly, and look at crypto/tokens with long-term growth potential.
The second risk in Liquidity Pools is called 'Impermanent Loss' which refers to token volatility caused by the ratio tokens are invested at: in a 50 / 50 value split. If the price of one token goes up or down drastically, your share (number) of the other token will likely also change. This loss is called 'impermanent' as your investment should return to normal when the value of both Tokens returns to their original 'ratio price point'. Stable Coins like $USDT or $HBD usually suffer from very little impermanent loss thanks to a typically low price volatility. Still, all stable coins have some risk of becoming unpegged and losing their original 'dollar value'.
The last risk doesn't happen very often, but we still feel it should be mentioned. There is a chance that the DEX or smart contract is hacked or compromised allowing fraudsters to 'clean out' the LP's. Our Liquidity Pool is built using Tribaldex Dieselpool Contracts, and none of our guild devs have access to the underlying code.
Liquidity Pool Advantages:
Liquidity Pools provide crypto to the DEX (Decentralized Exchange) offering stability to that exchange and the layer-1 or layer-2 Tokens placed in those Liquidity Pools.
Most Liquidity Pools will REWARD their Liquidity Providers with tokens through a smart contract and provide a percentage of all swap fees to LP Providers (which gets added straight into their positions).
LP's offer a place for investors to swap tokens off of the open market, so tokens can often be purchased for cheaper than they would on the DEX. This is especially true for sought after tokens that people are HODLing. Arbitrage traders will take advantage of price variations between open market and LP's to make profits.
As always and MOST IMPORTANTLY, do not spend any money / crypto you can't afford to lose! The global crypto market is undergoing what could be a long-term 'Bear cycle' (more sellers than buyers), and everyone should be preparing for the long haul.
During the current bear market, Threshold Guardian Gaming will continue to innovate and collaborate, rigorously developing our token, guild and economy.
