We plan to list $SALD very soon on two of the top five exchanges in the world.

We are currently in talks with more exchanges for future listings.
How you can help
If there are any KOLs/influencers/alpha groups that you are in contact with that can help us get the word out, an introduction is much appreciated.
Same goes for PR opportunities that can be useful for our token listing - if it gets us in front of the right people we will explore.
We have planned out an entire marketing plan until the end of the year, to keep the momentum in Salad ongoing even after our token listing. If there are any ideas/case studies that you have seen work for other projects in the recent months, please share them with me so I can study it with my team.
Adding more partners to our ecosystem is one factor to our success. If there are B2C projects whom you know that’s looking to grow their community, engagement and user base with Web3 natives, please connect them with me. We currently have close to 200 partners in our ecosystem and the numbers are increasing daily.
If there are speaking opportunities for me that are related to the topic of GrowthFi, community building and engagement, X-2-Earn, please send them my way. This will help Salad get the exposure it needs especially after our token listing.
Thank you for your support in the last 2.5 years of building Salad. I am very excited that we are now taking this next step in our project growth, and see many more possibilities for growing Salad further with our investors, our ecosystem partners, and our team.
