September Monthly Roundup

As the autumnal leaves are falling and closing the summer chapter, September has been a busy and fruitful month for Pendulum’s teams. Our community is growing by leaps and by bounds, product and tech developments are getting mature, and we’re also gearing up to become a parachain at the end of this year, but in the meantime, we want to give you the best roundup in September!

Before we get into it, a monthly roundup on the progress we’re making with Pendulum will be a part of our regular communication and a way to keep you updated with what’s on the table — especially if you’re new here or haven’t been around for a while. We hope that this format helps keep things organised and easy to digest so you can stay in the loop with us.

So let’s dive into it!

Hot News 📰

$AMPE Crowdloan Rewards are Distributed

We’re thrilled to share that $AMPE crowdloan rewards are finally distributed.

We really want to thank everyone who supported us on this journey, and we hope you’re as excited as we are about what’s coming next. We want to take this opportunity to remind everyone what you can do with your $AMPE tokens.

First, you own the voting power and governance on the chain. That means you’ll be able to vote on decisions that drive an impact to the network. Staking will also be enabled next, and you’ll be able to stake your $AMPEs to secure the network and earn rewards. And finally, token transfers are being enabled at the democracy launch. This means you’re free to send them to any person or service you wish.

This significant portion of the token supply has been distributed fully, it is now in the hands of the community. For more information on Amplitude’s tokenomics can be found here.

Pendulum Roadmap Update

Pendulum’s roadmap has been updated, and it’s now featuring items up until 2024! We wanted to make sure our community knew about this because we’re excited to share with you what’s coming next!
