The underlying feature of the ‘LiquidBox’ is that it will help solve numerous issues such as the increased impermanent losses by investors in both UniSwap V3 mining. As well as the issues encountered due to the classic UniSwap V2 design. By doing so, investors are guaranteed an increase in their earnings and also for projects to effectively pull liquidity with token rewards.
LiquidBox’s design of assigning reward tokens according to distinct rules to achieve a quality outcome for the projects creates a win-win situation for both users. It also solves the ‘Pool2 dilemma’ usually associated with excessive dilution.
To earn on the LiquidBox platform, users simply have to stake their tokens on izumi. Thus, taking advantage of the cheaper and larger liquidity pools.
Xinshu Dong, co-founder of IOSG reaffirms that izumi is building another missing lego in the DeFi puzzle by helping projects achieve target liquidity distribution, including enhanced concentrated liquidity, with a suite of tools. In addition, Jimmy Yin, co-founder of izumi Finance says,

We sincerely welcome every project to izumi to come to us for better and cheaper liquidity.
