Polkaswap testnet: HASHI Substrate Bridge to Liberland

The Polkaswap testnet features the HASHI Substrate bridge connection to Liberland.

Through integration with the Liberland sovereign state’s blockchain, Liberland citizens will be able to utilize Polkaswap’s #DeFi services and connect with other blockchain networks such as #Ethereum, Kusama, Polkadot, and more (coming soon to Polkaswap), acting as a hub for interoperable transactions!

So, what’s Liberland?

Liberland is a based country that runs entirely on blockchain technology, a crypto-friendly sovereign state situated between Croatia and Serbia on the shores of the Danube River. This collaboration opens up a new realm of possibilities, not just for SORA but also for Liberland citizens, enabling seamless interaction and fluid access to decentralized finance.


HMX-XOR is now live on the Polkaswap Order Book!

We’re thrilled to introduce this new addition in collaboration with the Ceres and DAO Hermes teams.

Strategic Bonus Rewards Update is Being Voted on

To be eligible, you’ll need to provide a minimum of 3 million (3'000'000) XOR liquidity in any XOR-paired pool.

📇 Check out the details here.

Plus, if you contribute to the XOR-VAL, XOR-PSWAP, XOR-DAI, XOR-ETH, or XOR-DOT pools, your rewards are doubled!

⏳ Wednesday 24th April — 11:10 CEST

This is an update to the LP program to reflect the originally designed idea to reward liquidity providers with extra bonuses, particularly those who contributed more to the liquidity pool (above certain threshold).

⚠️ Remember, it’s essential to keep an eye on your liquidity provision status.

If your pool falls below 3 million XOR, you’ll lose eligibility for strategic bonus PSWAP rewards, and your time coefficient will reset, although you won’t lose the bonus you earned.

Ongoing Developments

As we continue to push the boundaries of DeFi, several notable items are currently in progress:

  • HASHI Substrate Bridge to Liberland — 95% complete.

We’re excited to unveil the latest technical breakthrough: the seamless integration of the HASHI Substrate Bridge with the Liberland blockchain. This integration marks a significant stride forward in bolstering interoperability and scalability within the SORA ecosystem and the Polkaswap DEX. Now available on testnet test.polkaswap.io/#/bridge, this bridge connects two dynamic ecosystems, fostering decentralized application development and facilitating smooth interaction and asset exchange between Polkaswap and the Liberland blockchain.

  • Asset Owner page — 90% complete.

We’ve revolutionized the asset creation process, placing a premium on user-friendliness and intuitive functionality. With just a few clicks, asset creators can effortlessly issue new tokens, streamlining the token launch process on Polkaswap and fostering innovation while enhancing liquidity on the platform.

Introducing the new Asset Owner page will empower token owners with direct minting and burning capabilities. This enhancement grants asset creators unprecedented control over their token supply, enabling dynamic adjustments to effectively adapt to changing market conditions.

Moreover, we’ve introduced a comprehensive suite of statistics to provide users with deeper insights into the performance of their created assets. These metrics encompass vital indicators such as trading volume, liquidity, price history, and user engagement for each asset. Armed with these insights, users can make informed decisions about their asset strategy, although it’s important to note that this information does not constitute financial advice.

  • Kensetsu in Polkaswap — 60% complete.

The Kensetsu platform unveils a groundbreaking over-collateralized stablecoin system, spearheaded by the launch of KUSD (Kensetsu USD, ticker subject to change). This stablecoin will be underpinned by a diverse range of collateral assets operating within individual vaults' framework. These vaults safeguard the assets and levy stability fees to uphold the stablecoin’s peg to the US dollar.

In the meantime, the Polkaswap team is about to complete the MVP for this groundbreaking initiative. Users will gain the ability to create and manage vaults, with access to real-time details. The next milestone involves integrating statistical information, transaction history, closed vaults, and liquidation data.

Stay tuned for upcoming updates as we persist in pushing the boundaries of decentralized finance!

About Polkaswap

Polkaswap is a next-generation, cross-chain liquidity aggregator and hybrid AMM and order book DEX on the Polkadot (and Kusama) network(s), parachains, and blockchains connected via bridges. Through the development of bridge technologies, Polkaswap enables Ethereum-based tokens to be traded. This is done seamlessly, at high speed and low fees, while exchanging assets in a non-custodial manner on the SORA network.

Polkaswap utilises liquidity aggregation technology to trade against multiple sources, promising to solve critical problems AMM DEXs face, such as impermanent loss and pair fragmentation. As an open-source project, it allows the community to add more liquidity sources, enhancing its potential. Polkaswap is the first cross-chain, fully decentralised exchange interoperable via bridges with Polkadot, Kusama, and Ethereum, with Bitcoin and various EVM-based ecosystems coming soon.
