What an exciting birthday month! One could call it a month of change, bringing with it SafeMoon branding evolution, a new domain, a router upgrade, sneak peeks, wallet updates, and more! We've had lots of SafeMoon networking, some sad farewells, and some incredible hire reveals.

The month began with an overall sense of excitement for what it would bring. Many birthday wishes were shared throughout the SafeMoon community, and delightfully, we were introduced to the new video format for product releases and reveals, now called SafeMoon Specials.

So what's new?

Branding Evolution

This month we were introduced to the first SafeMoon Special, titled "Thank you, SafeMoonArmy!" The video revealed SafeMoon's new branding evolution and the overall sentiment from this new branding change has been very positive!

"The creation of a brand that can encompass various aspects of a business is often the key to its success. When a single company pushes out different products, it's important that people can recognize they belong to the same system that shares the same ideals and goals." SafeMoon Reddit u/EveningCandle1025 states. "Brand awareness is the way in which consumers recognize and remember your business. The greater the brand awareness you have, the more audiences will be familiar with your logo, messaging, and products." Below is a slideshow of the new branding.

This image shares some insight into the creation of SafeMoon's new brand.

Website Domain

SafeMoon has relocated its domain to, the global standard in domain names.

"Some context around this gift. There was a massive amount of work that has gone into getting the .com. Lawyers, private investigators etc all went into getting the .com back into the hands of SafeMoon. In this case, it wasn’t as simple as going to a website and buying the domain. But we are glad we did, and are excited to share this first gift during our birthday month. More to come :)" - CEO John Karony

0% MoonPay Fees

On March 3rd SafeMoon announced 0% MoonPay fees for fourteen days in a tweet with the video below attached. This took place from March 5th to 19th.

Wallet Update

The SafeMoon community has had so many unique feature ideas since the release of the wallet. So the team decided to implement these features as a gift for SafeMoon's birthday month and announced it on March 4th.

The update included:

  • Press and hold balance to view the selected chain or all chains

  • Press and hold the calculator multi-token button for native or custom tokens.

  • Press and hold the multi-purpose calculator bag button for balance and more

  • Info page for NFTs for collectibles module

  • Hold and drag collections, and NFT’s to re-arrange

  • Link to individual token charts for CMC and Tradingview

  • The default currency value of each token now appears on the main screen and in the transaction history.

  • Upgraded “Manage Wallet” page

  • The bottom field in the swap is now editable.

  • Join community page added in settings

Cross-Chain Swap Reveal

SafeMoon revealed plans for the implementation of a cross-chain swap.

Ethereum ➡ BSC ➡ Ethereum

SFM token will be the middleware.

2% for every trade, broken down as follows:

▶1% Reflections

▶0.5% Liquidity

▶0.5% burned

SafeMoon's mission pillars are security, quality, and accessibility.

For those that do not know how to use bridging DAPPs, Cross-chain will allow them to participate by providing a simple, easy way to directly swap funds between blockchains. This promotes ease of use and accessibility.

SafeMoon CEO John Karony

"I am personally excited for the cross-chain. Meaning the ease of use when bridging from BNB to ETH. Super beneficial towards the accessibility pillar. A lot of folks don't understand how to use bridging DAPPs, so this makes it easier for folks to participate and helps remove a little bit of a knowledge barrier for some others."

"BSC and ETH are just the first two chains. We will cross many more."

Router Upgrade

The SafeMoon Swap router went through an upgrade this month in preparation for the cross-chain feature and the future innovation and growth of our Swap.

SafeMoon Swap Listings

SafeMoon welcomes two SafeMoon Swap listing partners.🤝Reflex Finance on March 7th and Pawthereum on March 17th!

Please note: Reflex token will be temporarily unavailable for trading on the SafeMoon Swap. During the router upgrade, token listing partners had to remove their LP and then reseed it after the upgrade was complete. Reflex token is currently preparing for a V2 upgrade and has communicated that they will not be reseeding their LP until their V2 migration is complete.

Swap Volume

Shout out to Hydra, who’s provided the community with a daily swap volume update for over 50 days!! Thank you, Hydra! Here’s a summary of this month's SafeMoon Volume!

MandalaEx had an update at the beginning of this month, and in the most recent SafeMoon Special, some exciting insight and sneak peeks of the SafeMoon Exchange, NFTs, and Card were revealed. The SafeMoon Special transcript, subcategories, and timestamped videos are available here.

SafeMoon Exchange

"To operate our software, you have to have the right licenses, and those licenses are many and varied globally. And when I'm talking licenses, I don't mean software licenses. I mean regulation and operational licenses to actually transact in different locations around the world.

But we're well ahead of the game now, and we're certain you'll be happy with what we have achieved by the time the exchange does launch. But all of that is a behind the scenes process. You can't really sink your eyes into that. So shall we talk about the design more?"

-SafeMoon Special

Please note that the features and settings in the following images are not final and are subject to change before release.

Also revealed was that the SafeMoon Exchange will have full mobile compatibility on day one of its release! And the SafeMoon Exchange will launch this year!

SafeMoon Special, Exchange sneak peek video timestamp and transcript here.


In the most recent SafeMoon Special, we were given a sneak peek of the SafeMoon NFTs in development.

"I'm pleased to report that the NFTS are underway. We're using a fantastic team to develop them out with lots of concepts and thinking instead of just doing what everyone else has done. We're taking very intentional time to sculpt and work in a 3D environment because ultimately the NFTs are not necessarily the final destination of this work."

- SafeMoon Special.

SafeMoon Card

Introducing the SafeMoon Card! The actual design was also revealed in this week's SafeMoon Special.

"Yes. The SafeMoon card is so close that you can see it floating in front of you right now. We are tremendously pleased to say that we are on track for delivering the SafeMoon card in Quarter 2 as planned and wanted to give you the very first look at the launch edition as part of this birthday month."
