After months of work and setbacks, we’d like to finally announce the completion of our biggest project yet; KogeFarm 2.0! KogeFarm 2.0 has been a long time in the making and is a major milestone for us both from a product and a general team mindset perspective.

Even though we’ve been around since May 2021, it’s been tough to get traction due to our small size. We know we have a great product and community. But in the crypto world, unless you pay influencers to shill your coin (with no knowledge of what you’re about), shout “to the moon!” …

Liquidity pools (LPs) are a foundational concept in DeFi and yield farming. If you don’t understand how an LP works you’re at a major disadvantage. You should always understand the mechanism you’re putting your funds into!

If you don’t know what an LP is or the absolute basics, please check out our other article on understanding the role LPs play in DeFi. This article will be assuming a rudimentary knowledge of LPs.

When and why would you create an LP?

When you’re yield farming or just providing liquidity to an LP, you’ll typically be contributing tokens to existing LPs. You’re contributing to LPs that someone else has created…

KogeCoin began its journey on Polygon. The Polygon chain has been good for KogeCoin and KogeFarm but with one major downfall; we’re only on Polygon (at the moment). What does this mean? If you have tokens on another chain like BSC, you can’t directly swap those tokens KogeCoin; that’s a problem. Until now.

We are excited to announce that you can now directly swap BSC tokens for KogeCoin on the Polygon network through the cross-chain token bridge Evodefi! …

Decentralized finance (DeFi) wouldn’t exist without having a place for traders to swap coins; luckily, we have liquidity pools to fill the void that centralized finance (CeFi), and banks leave behind!

To provide a place to trade tokens, automated-market makers (AMMs) have liquidity pools (LPs). LPs are smart contracts that contain a pair of tokens of varying amounts that traders can trade tokens to/from.

LPs provide the “trading interface” for traders to deposit one token and take another in return of equal value.


Well, it’s a wrap. On August 20th, 2021 KogeFarm held an AMA in our main KogeFarm Telegram channel. It was a blast hearing what the PolyRoll team was up to and what their plans are at building their growing casino platform.

If you missed the AMA, don’t worry! We’ve captured all of the questions and answers here for your review.

Questions and answers were edited for clarity.

At Koge, we understand that the crypto world, especially decentralized finance (DeFi), can be unpredictable and sometimes shady. It seems like every other day, yet another platform generates ton of hype, takes on millions of investor money, and disappears.

“This isn’t a scam!” is an all too familiar phrase you hear every token and DeFi application saying in the DeFi world. But how can you be sure? How can you actually trust an organization if everyone’s saying yet not everyone is telling the truth?

Two ways:

  1. By being audited by a prestigious and trustworthy organization.
  2. By making it impossible to…
