Farming Reward Simulation Tool

To view this information: Go to the farm page, click in the details of a staked LP farm and click ‘simulation’.

Utility Page “Sneak Preview”
A page providing OpenSwap users with different utilities will be coming to life soon. Test and quality assurance is still needed before we can roll out the utility page.

Several of these features were requests from our community.
