Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Royale Announces IDO on Polkastarter

Gain your place in the ROYA ecosystem on 21st December via our initial DEX offering (IDO) on Polkastarter!

Lords and ladies, it is the moment you have all been waiting for! Our coronation. We at Royale, the iGaming DeFi disruptor, are delighted to announce our initial public DEX debut on Polkastarter, the innovative cross-chain decentralised exchange enabling projects to raise capital. We are extremely proud to announce that Royale was selected as one of the 3 lucky projects, including SpiderDAO and MahaDAO, to exclusively inaugurate the beautiful Polkastarter platform this week.

For you, dear reader, it is the opportunity to be first in line to the iGDeFi throne. Take your rightful place in the hallowed ranks of Royale nobility!

Royale, the first mover in the iGDeFi industry, will be the third of three projects to launch their initial DEX offering (IDO) on Polkastarter, a rising DeFi star and now truly a project kingmaker. Although the platform will be operating on Ethereum for the next few months, the end goal for the Polkastarter protocol is to enable cross-chain token sales and swaps by deploying its EVM smart contracts on the Polkadot blockchain via Moonbeam.

This relationship makes Polkastarter the perfect environment for Royale to realise its regal ambitions. Our aim is to provide the opportunity for iGaming entrepreneurs to realise their ambitions, using whatever blockchain or methodology they please, by granting access to Royale's deep liquidity pool. The makings of our iGDeFi future is happening now!

IDO Details on Polkastarter

If you would like to join the iGDeFi aristocracy, there are a few important points to note before you can secure your Royale estate:

We would like to express our gratitude to Polkastarter for graciously agreeing to feature us in the first week of their MVP debut. Likewise, we are excited to welcome the 12,000-strong $POLS Army to become a part of our Royale community of Kings and Queens.

With you, we will build tools that create the best experiences for DeFi protocol users, gamers and iGaming entrepreneurs that capture value from an established sector set to top $150 billion within this decade.

“We have selected Royale as one of the first 3 projects to use the Polkastarter platform as they are the first mover to apply DeFi liquidity principles to a fast-growing segment outside of the crypto industry. In Polkastarter’s quest to build the cross-chain DEX of the future, we admire Royale’s vision for expanding crypto adoption, which is something we are also striving for with the Polkastarter platform.“

— Daniel Stockhaus, Polkastarter co-founder
