It’s been an exciting few months with all the updates and milestones we’ve achieved at Comdex. A big part of being able to achieve the things we have has been the support of the community of COMets! This was especially evident with the overwhelming response we saw with our Launch Party on 20th Nov, 2021.

We recently announced the upcoming liquidity bootstrapping pool on Osmosis, and as we gear up for announcements on the exact details, we noticed that some of you in the community had questions about what an LBP is and how you can participate. So, outlined below is an explanation of what LBPs are.
What is an LBP
