Polkamarkets Monthly Recap — May 2022

Polkamarkets Monthly Recap — May 2022

An amazing month of May has passed and we’re proud to be the first app to bring a multi-chain experience to prediction markets on the blockchain. Using the Polkamarkets app, users can browse prediction markets from different blockchains in one integrated interface. We also revamped our weekly incentives to reward protocol activity with $POLK, increasing the number of actions and wallets that are rewarded, and laying the foundations for full incentive automation in V2. We also continued the educational Polkamarkets 101 Series, making it easier for new users to get started with Polkamarkets.

Here’s a summary of what Polkamarkets Labs did in the month of May 2022:
