the garden monthly: june 2024
TL;DR: June has been a month of growth and collaboration for Garden! We continued our Season 3 sprint of collating more WBTC yield opportunities on Arbitrum, partnering with Trader Joe, Camelot, PancakeSwap, and Aark. We crossed $60M in volume and distributed $500k in SEED during Season 3. Additionally, we kicked off our Chief Gardeners program and announced a major integration with deBridge.

Garden is picking up steam to enter its next orbit through visible and behind-the-scenes activities this past month.

Canon Event

We teamed up with deBridge to level up Garden from being the fastest BTC <> WBTC bridge to the fastest native Bitcoin exchange period.

The integration will deliver deBridge’s catalog of assets and chain support to Garden users in seconds. Get a taste of this integration right now as phase 1 is already live!

About Garden

Garden is the fastest way to swap BTC and WBTC, providing a 10x improvement over existing options. It is decentralized, trustless, audited, and not a real garden.
