Crypto trader and analyst Tyler Swope says one experimental NFT (non-fungible token) protocol is gearing up for a set of upgrades that can send it to the moon.
In his new video, the influencer tells his 211,000 YouTube subscribers about Geysers and its implementation on NFTs.
“Geysers as in an Etheruem smart contract. Going to the host and creator of these, Ampleforth’s (AMPL) website they say, ‘Ampleforth Geysers are smart faucets that incentivize on-chain liquidity. Users receive AMPL for providing liquidity on automated market making platforms like Uniswap.”
One little-known and experimental project that’s linked to Ampleforth’s Geysers is Alchemist, according to Swope.
“NFTs with Alchemist coin are, of course, built with Geyser v2, but they create an NFT which links your stake to multiple liquidity pool programs, and the minted NFT crucibles are getting a touch of art, art competitions going down in Discord as I speak.”
Swope says Alchemist is a relatively new project that allows users to stake with NFTs instead of smart contracts.
“Liquidity pool tokens, for example, from Uniswap (UNI), with half Alchemist coin and half Ethereum, can be converted into their NFT Crucible also known as the Universal Vault. You can then take this NFT and potentially use it across other liquidity reward programs at the same time.”
Citing a reply from Brandon Iles, co-founder of Ampleforth, Swope highlights that users can potentially stake across multiple Geysers via NFTs in the future.
“Brandon replies, ‘Yes. Geyser v2 has a new architecture and a component that we call Universal Vaults. This is the part represented as an NFT. The idea is you can use the same LP tokens for multiple programs simultaneously by locking them in the vault once. If this idea gets traction, I can potentially see it becoming standardized or built into normal crypto wallets as an add-on feature.’”
He also points out that Stephane Gosselinan, an experienced Ethereum researcher and developer, is working on Alchemist. According to Swope, Gosselinan also made the connection between Alchemist and AMPL’s Geyser V2 contracts.
“This is Geyser V2 universal vaults. They are testing and experimenting with. If it gains traction, it will be standardized and built into AMPL and beyond.”
