LIquidity Pools & Yield Farming

Pooling tokens facilitates DEX trading, ensuring that there is enough liquidity for traders to make token swaps. This works by providing two tokens (such as JOE and AVAX) to a pool in return for LP tokens, which can then be farmed. Not all pools can be farmed on Trader Joe, but you will still earn a percentage of the trading fees in proportion to your share of the pool.
You can also use the ZAP feature to automatically turn single tokens into double-sided LPs, however this feature is not available for all tokens.
Once in the pool, in most cases you can use LP tokens for Yield Farming. Simply visit the farm tab and search for the pair you wish to farm to earn a further share of the trading fees.
