TL;DR

The Polkaswap Testnet

We are happy to launch the Polkaswap testnet with basic functionality! The team is working on adding new features and fixing issues as they are found. After that, a security audit will be performed.

For now you can try the following features (there are still some issues occasionally):

  • swap tokens
  • add liquidity
  • get test tokens
  • send assets

If you want to provide suggestions or issues, please send them to polkaswap@soramitsu.co.jp or join the telegram chat at https://t.me/joinchat/UvXVAf5pFj86ycZK.

According to the roadmap, Polkaswap will launch with basic features in Q1 of 2021 and advanced features are expected in Q2.

Getting Test Tokens

There is a testnet faucet that can be used for getting test tokens: https://testfaucet.polkaswap.io/. Users are able to get 100 XOR, 100 PSWAP, and 100 VAL every day to their account.

Open the faucet, select the asset, copy your address and set the amount of tokens you want. After that, click Send testnet <asset name> and wait. The loader will be displayed on the button. You’ll see the success message when transaction completes. If no message shows up after some time, try to refresh the page.

About SORA, Polkaswap, and Fearless Wallet

SORA NEO (New Economic Order) is a new economic system based upon a supranational, decentralized central bank (DCB) with built-in tools for decentralized finance (DeFi). The SORA network implements a new kind of parachain architecture on the Polkadot and Kusama networks, providing the capability to bridge external blockchains (like Ethereum) to the Polkadot ecosystem.

One of the DeFi applications that will run on the SORA network is Polkaswap, a non-custodial liquidity aggregator cross-chain AMM DEX designed specifically for the Polkadot ecosystem. Polkaswap combines the security and convenience of a DEX with a one-of-a-kind Aggregate Liquidity Technology (ALT) capable of providing boundless liquidity.

Fearless Wallet is a mobile wallet designed for the decentralized future on the Kusama and Polkadot networks, with support for the iOS and Android platforms. It offers an awesome user experience, fast performance, and secure storage for your accounts. The Fearless wallet will integrate with Polkaswap for easy, decentralized asset trading.
