What is Pendulum and the PEN token?

Pendulum is building the missing link between fiat and DeFi through a forex-optimized smart contract DeFi network. The blockchain infrastructure will allow traditional finance services to seamlessly integrate with DeFi applications such as specialized forex AMMs, lending protocols, and yield farming. Building Pendulum on Polkadot’s Substrate framework maximizes multi-chain interoperability and increased security. The PEN token will power the Pendulum ecosystem. Watch this space for a breakdown of the PEN tokenomics soon.

The Crowdloan Process

Our crowdloan allows us to raise the required DOT to secure a parachain slot on Polkadot and to distribute PEN tokens to the earliest supporters in the community. DOT contributed to a successful crowdloan and will be locked for the duration of the parachain lease for 96 weeks.

Contributors to our successful crowdloan will receive PEN tokens for 96 weeks according to our vesting schedule. The contributed DOT will be unlocked trustlessly and automatically after 96 weeks and returned to contributors. Check out our deep-dive article into exactly how Polkadot parachain auctions work here.
