Is ApeSwap a good investment?

Cryptocurrencies are highly speculative assets that come with a range of risks. Those that are considering BANANA as an investment should consider the following factors:

  • Competitive market: Although the team at ApeSwap has created a unique user interface, along with an innovative theme, the DeFi space is saturated with decentralised exchanges and lending protocols. DEXs such as Uniswap and SushiSwap and lending protocols, such as Aave and Compound, have large user bases and a first-mover advantage which ApeSwap Finance needs to compete with.
  • Unknown development team: Although it is common within the cryptocurrency industry for developers and users to use pseudonyms and not show their identities, the team behind ApeSwap is completely unknown. An unknown development team can sometimes be considered a red flag for those considering investment. Although having a clear image of the team does not remove the risk of rug pulls or malicious code, it does often help garner credibility for a project.
  • Inflationary token supply: BANANA does not have a fixed maximum supply of tokens. New BANANA tokens can be added to the circulating supply at any time. It is important to remember that an increasing circulating supply often places downward pressure on price. However, the ApeSwap Finance application has tried to include deflationary burning mechanics to offset this ongoing inflation.
  • Deflationary burn mechanism: According to ApeSwap’s documentation it is the intention of the application to eventually make BANANA a deflationary token. Until that happens, the application has in place a series of burn mechanisms to reduce the circulating supply and keep inflation at bay. These include: a quarterly DEX buyback and burn that uses 50% of all transaction fees to burn BANANA on a quarterly basis, and a weekly manual burn that burns 0.3 of every 11 BANANA emitted per block.
