Token Description & Project Background

Synapse is an interoperability protocol that facilitates secure communication across different blockchain networks. By operating on prominent networks, Synapse empowers developers to easily construct cross-chain applications that support their assets and smart contract interactions. The protocol offers a cross-chain automated market maker (AMM) and asset bridge, allowing efficient asset transfers with minimal price slippage through the utiliation of “stableswap” AMMs deployed on integrated chains. 

The native token of the Synapse protocol, SYNm serves as a governance token enabling holders to vote on protocol parameters and actively participate in shaping the future development and direction of the protocol. Additionally, SYN is used to reward liquidity providers for contributing to the network. 

Synapse operates under a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) model, with no specific listed founders. The project is managed and controlled collectively by the DAO. Unfortunately, Synapse experienced a hack in November 2021, resulting in the loss of approximately US$8 million. 

Synapse was previously known as Nerve Finance, A BSC based AMM specializing in low-slippage stablecoin trades, Synapse underwent a rebranding. Alongside the rebranded protocol, the SYN token was airdropped to participants in August 2021.
