Welcome Pendulum

Pendulum aims to build the missing link between fiat and DeFi through a fiat-optimized smart contract blockchain. Polkadot allows parachains to benefit from its security while maintaining independence over their governance. With Polkadot’s advanced smart contract compatibility, an entire fiat DeFi ecosystem can be developed on the Pendulum parachain, including AMMs, lending protocols, forex-optimized money markets, and more. The roadmap includes cross-chain bridges linking Pendulum to Ethereum, Cosmos, and all major crypto ecosystems. Spacewalk, our trust-minimized bridge between Stellar and all substrate chains, is already under development. Pendulum will be powered by the native PEN token.

Welcome PEN

The PEN TGE (token generation event) is projected for February 2023. PEN will be the native token of Pendulum. PEN utilities include powering transactions as the Pendulum gas token, governance, and staking.
