  • Congratulations to Integritee Network on winning the 23rd Polkadot Parachain Auction!

Acala / Karura

  • Acala’s Interprotocol aUSD Distribution Scheme (IADS) has been launched, increasing stablecoin liquidity & efficiency for Polkadot and Kusama. Read more.
  • A new ACA staking program is set to go live very soon. Users with unclaimed rewards from the previous staking program must claim them before the new program starts on August 4th to avoid having them subject to the new 3 month loyalty period.
  • Basilisk has integrated aUSD as the stablecoin of choice for its app-specific DeFi chain built with Substrate.
  • Cross-chain channels between Parallel’s Heiko parachain and Karura are live on Kusama. More to come soon on deeper integrations.

OAK / Turing

Litentry / Litmus

  • The XCM bi-channel between Litmus and Karura was launched. Users can now send LIT from Litmus to the Karura Network (and back). Also LIT will go live on Karura Swap soon.

Astar / Shiden

  • AstarBase for developers: learn how to create a smart contract that mints reward tokens for your dApp staking supporters.
  • Ledger now supports Astar and Shiden networks. Once you install the EVM app you can send and receive assets using your hardware wallet. Details.
  • You can now transfer aUSD, ACA, and LDOT from Acala to Astar.

Interlay / Kintsugi

  • Incoming Kintsugi upgrades: there are actions needed for proposals 54 + 55. Check out this thread to learn more.


  • Recently bought your land on Skybreach? Watch this short breakdown to learn about the land decay mechanism.

Enjin / Efinity



  • KILT successfully swapped parachain slots on Kusama, and is now running on its second lease period. The swap was executed via XCM.
  • The runtime upgrade to KILT Spiritnet v1.7.0 (authorized by the latest referendum) was enacted. This includes internal optimisation, and a breaking change in how KILT attestations are stored on the chain.

Moonbeam / Moonriver

  • Moonbeam’s decentralization/health dashboard by DappLooker aggregates data (such as collator & delegator stats, network activity, and tx totals) and uses it to provide deeper network insights. Take a look.
  • To celebrate their recent integration to Moonbeam, Project Galaxy is kicking off the Ultimate Harvest Moon Campaign: win NFTs by using dApps on Moonbeam. Read the announcement.
  • Moonbeam is integrated on TokenPocket. Users can now enjoy the experience of Moonbeam wallet creation, token transfer, DApp use, and more.


Composable Finance / Picasso

Bit.Country / Pioneer

Parallel Finance / Heiko

  • For those who missed the opportunity to participate in Parallel’s Heiko crowdloan: you can swap HKO on the AMM.
  • With the Kusama cross-chain connection 3 months ago and after much testing, the token and stablecoin of Karura are available on Heiko and vice versa the token of Parallel is available on Karura.
  • Cross-chain with Moonriver & Heiko has also been opened, meaning HKO is available on Moonriver, and Moonriver’s MOVR is on Heiko.

Equilibrium / Genshiro

  • Equilibrium is adding more assets. Get more details on what they plan to offer and how you can utilize those assets inside and out of their ecosystem.
  • Check out this sneak peek of the trading pairs that the Genshiro team has been adding and testing.
