Austin, Texas [April 5, 2022] (ORIGINAL: GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Phunware, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHUN) (“the Company”), a fully-integrated enterprise cloud platform for mobile that provides products, solutions, data and services for brands worldwide, announced today that PhunToken (PHTK) is now available on Uniswap. Ecosystem participants leveraging Uniswap will need to use the PhunToken Contract Address in order to import PHTK as a new custom token before initiating any swap, while PHTK will remain available for direct purchase on the PhunToken Buy Portal with US Dollars (USD), Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH).
Phunware also launched a new PhunToken website with a streamlined interface to support user generated content curation, liquidity deposits and yield farming for earning additional rewards.
“We are a real company building a blockchain-enabled ecosystem in the real world that has the potential to responsibly drive the mainstream adoption of crypto by reimagining how brands engage with consumers,” said Alan S. Knitowski, President, CEO and Co-Founder of Phunware. “Decentralized exchanges like Uniswap greatly expand the awareness and accessibility of digital assets like PhunToken by providing mechanisms for making markets, providing liquidity and enabling rewards for engaged participants.”
With the launch of the new PhunToken website, additional resources available include, but are not limited to:
- User Generated Content. Find, access and easily share creative content from across the growing Phunware community by following #FeedThePhun.
- Liquidity and Market Making. Pair PHTK with ETH on Uniswap to deposit liquidity, assist with the decentralization of swaps and earn rewards on fees generated by swaps.
- Yield Farming. Earn PHTK rewards through liquidity incentives to not only foster a healthy operational ecosystem, but also more rapidly accelerate the global decentralization of PHTK.
