May 21, 2024, May 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In a monumental display of community engagement and rapid growth, the BLAST HOGE ($HOGE) token launched on the BlasterSwap decentralized exchange (DEX) on May 17th, 2024, achieving a market cap of over $3M after only three days of trading on the Blast network. This milestone marks a significant achievement for the HOGE Finance ecosystem and highlights the potential for Layer 1 Ethereum communities transitioning to Layer 2 solutions.

A Historic Launch on BlasterSwap
BLAST HOGE began with an initial liquidity of $50,000 on BlasterSwap, a DEX with over $17 million in total value locked (TVL). The token quickly attracted enthusiastic support, reaching $2 million in TVL and surpassing $60,000 in first-day trading volume. This rapid growth underscores the token's robust appeal and the community's strong trust in its vision. 

Empowering The HOGE Community through Airdrops
A key element of the launch was the extensive HOGE Finance airdrop. Over 75 billion tokens were distributed to HOGE holders on Ethereum, with each of the 76,000+ wallets receiving just over 1 million tokens totaling 20% of the supply. This airdrop incentivizes engagement with Layer 2 solutions, enabling immediate exploration of dApps on the BLAST network at no expense to existing HOGE Finance community members. Upcoming partnerships promise to further enhance the token’s utility.

An additional 10% of the total token supply (valued at $122,000 at time of writing) has been distributed to the HOGE Finance DAO treasury wallet via industry-leading token management partners. These funds will bolster the community treasury and add everlasting value to the wider HOGE Finance ecosystem by funding new initiatives and proposals, as well as providing liquidity for a myriad of potential developments.

Future Plans
BLAST HOGE's launch is the starting point for a series of strategic initiatives designed to deliver immediate utility and benefits to holders. These include platform activation campaigns, innovative partnerships, and much more. Additionally, holders can participate in the Blast Jackpot at blast.io by entering their BLAST HOGE tokens and launch keys, offering a chance to win substantial Blast gold rewards.

Future BLAST HOGE airdrops will feature exciting projects and platforms on the BLAST network, as well as collaborations with notable Ethereum communities. These airdrops aim to expand reach, foster deeper community engagement, and create an atmosphere of anticipation and exclusivity.

The Blast Network, boasting over $1.5 billion in TVL, is preparing for an anticipated airdrop on June 27th, estimated to be near or above $1 billion in value. This event has already generated significant buzz and increased daily wallet activity exponentially as users prepare for the lucrative occasion. Through the network's low transaction fees and native yields and incentives, holders of Ethereum can maximize their investment potential- no longer burdened by the immense fees typical on the L1 Ethereum network.

Tokenomics and Security
Mirroring the tokenomics of its Ethereum parent, BLAST HOGE implements a 2% burn and 1% reflection mechanism, along with a 50% burn at launch. Additionally, BLAST HOGE will distribute 5% of its post-burn tokens to the HOGE DAO treasury over three years via Magna.

Magna is a leading token management platform with over $2 billion in tokens locked, partnered with notable chains such as Aptos and Immutable.
