Polkadot Ecosystem Weekly Digest. March 7th — 13th.

Polkadot/Kusama

  • Congratulations to Nodle on winning Polkadot’s 11th auction! Nodle will be onboarded at block #9,388,800 (roughly March 11,2022) at the beginning of lease 7 with the other winners from auctions 6–11. Over 4.7K network stakeholders locked up DOT in favor.
  • The Moonbeam Foundation has officially secured Moonriver’s next parachain slot on Kusama Network. The Foundation has decided to self-fund this slot extension.
