Polkadot / Kusama

Acala / Karura

  • Capx Liquid became the first dApp to launch on Karura. It brings a liquid vesting & token lifecycle mgmt tool to the Kusama ecosystem. Details.
  • Acala joined Alluvial, Coinbase Cloud and Figment to provide a compliant, enterprise-grade DOT Liquid Staking product to institutions.
  • The Karura <-> Altair HRMP channel allows both networks to seamlessly communicate and transfer tokens cross-chain. Seems like it is time to list AIR/aUSD. The proposal for bootstrapping and liquidity incentives is live on Acala’s forum.


Astar / Shiden

Interlay / Kintsugi

  • The governance proposal to open an XCM channel between Interlay and Acala passed by unanimous vote and has been executed.
  • INTR is now listed on Kraken.

Centrifuge / Altair

Moonbeam / Moonriver

  • Moonbeam & Moonriver have been successfully upgraded with priority bug fixes as part of Runtime 1606. The bug fixes followed a brief maintenance period, during which time network functionality was limited. Both chains have now been restored to full functionality.
  • Check all the details about Moonbeam Harvest in this twitter post.
  • Prime Protocol has announced a cross-chain connected lending & borrowing app, which will be deployed on multiple blockchains using Moonbeam as the nexus point for unifying functionality across the many chains.
  • SubWallet EVM has officially launched on Moonbeam / Moonriver networks & Moonbase Alpha Testnet. No conflict with MetaMask whatsoever. Now you can stake GLMR or handle your cross-chain assets with one wallet only.
  • TEER, Integritee’s native token, is now available as xcTEER for use across Moonriver’s DeFi ecosystem, and MOVR on Integritee Network. Read the entire announcement for details.

  • Did you know? Equilibrium offers low collateralization (105%) and high leverage (up to x20). This solves overcollateralization and liquidation inefficiencies that can be a headache for lenders and borrowers in DeFi lending protocols. Read more.
