November 17 2022, Ecosystem Updates for SORA, Polkaswap, and Fearless Wallet

The SORA, Polkaswap, and Fearless Wallet projects are all closely related as they form integral parts of the SORA and DOTSAMA ecosystems (of which SORA is a part). That is why development status updates are released every two weeks for these three projects, in one convenient place, with development updates from across the community. Enjoy the November 17, 2022 Ecosystem updates!

If you missed the previous ones: November 5 / October 19 / October 5 / September 21 / September 7 / August 24 / August 10 / July 27 / July 14 / July 1 / June 15 /June 1 / May 18 / May 4 / April 20 / April 6 / March 23 / March 9 / February 23 / February 9 / January 26 / January 12 / December 29 / December 15 / December 1 / November 17 / November 3 / October 20 / October 6 / September 22 / September 9 / older updates are archived here

The SORA Integrated Plan https://sora.org/plan

The few who understand the system, will either be so interested from it’s profits or so dependent on it’s favors, that there will be no opposition from that class
Mayer Amschel Rothschild

Let’s jump into this fortnight’s You are Here:

The SORA Kusama Parachain Bridge development is going smoothly and the components are being worked on individually, to then be tested together with an internal audit programmed for the 1st of December.

The major blocker and main focus of development efforts, Substrate 4 implementation, is going to start voting for a runtime upgrade tomorrow! This means that the gates will be wide open for the work and release of much-awaited functions such as XSTUSD-base pairs on Polkaswap (stable liquidity pools!) and order book functionality, effectively leveling up Polkaswap ahead of connectivity to other DOTSAMA chains, in preparation to make it the liquidity hub of the ecosystem.

On the other hand, the EVM trustless bridge to Ethereum underwent some maintenance and improvement work last week, including implementations suggested by an external audit. At the same time, the Multi-EVM bridge is currently on the testnet and receiving regular updates. Safety is the most important aspect of any bridge, therefore work in this aspect cannot be rushed or done badly or the consequences could be catastrophic.

Demeter farming for XOR-USDT and XOR-XSTUSD pools now on Polkaswap

The XST tokenomics implementation is being worked on diligently. Work on the platform for synthetic assets has begun, and last week the XOR-USDT and XOR-XSTUSD pools were added to the Demeter platform, with rewards in the form of XST, and APR* that cement the fact that the Demeter platform is the best-kept secret in the DOTSAMA ecosystem.

*Not financial advice, always do your research!

Polkaswap v1.10 is almost here, please help us test

Speaking of much-awaited functions, Polkaswap v1.10 is available to test, with many improvements under the hood, as well as in the UI. The swap page will have much more information, the assets page will be easier to navigate and filter, and there are features introduced that the community has been eagerly anticipating. Don’t just take our word for it, go try it out and let us know what you think. If you encounter any bugs or issues within the test environment, please report them as well. Remember that the more people help test, the faster this new version will be released and the better it will be!

SORA will be at Sub0 in Lisbon ❤️‍🔥 Come say hi at the SORA booth on the 29th between 3:30-6pm

The SORA mobile app will soon get an overhaul that will give it compatibility with SORA Card, as well as allow it to support upcoming updates, effectively making it future-proof. Some members of the SORA community were at the WebSummit in Lisbon earlier this month and many web2 users were impressed with the SORA wallet’s speed and ease of use, especially as for many, this was their first interaction with cryptocurrencies, leaving them with a positive impression and looking forward to the potential of the ecosystem as a whole. SORA will return to Lisbon this month for the Sub0 Polkadot developer conference.

⚠️ Make sure to install the latest version of Fearless Wallet!

The Fearless Wallet desktop wallet and browser extension are making great strides in progress, and the roadmap for its release is being prepared. This will bring new functions and features to make Fearless Wallet even better. With the upcoming Substrate 4 release, work is being done to add SORA network tokens into Fearless Wallet for both Android and iOS, as well as a UX/UI improvements. We hope you look forward to it. Some users have reported issues with staking reward calculations and we are working hard to provide a solution and apologise for the inconvenience caused. Stay Fearless!

Not your keys, not your crypto! Stay safe and stay non-custodial and decentralised!

In 1963. the Stanford Research Institute defined stakeholders as “members of a group without whose support the organization would cease to exist.” As far as the SORA network is concerned, all XOR holders and more recently XST holders are the stakeholders, building the SORA new world economic order. Thank you for your hard work and ongoing trust and support.

You can find the summary of the integrated plan points in the SORA Wiki.

About SORA, Polkaswap, and Fearless Wallet

SORA is a new economic system aimed at creating a supranational multiverse economic system with built-in tools for decentralized finance (DeFi). The SORA network implements a new way of parachain architecture on Polkadot and Kusama network, with 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 noncustodial liquidity aggregating, cross-chain AMM DEX designed uniquely for the Polkadot ecosystem with boundless liquidity through its one-of-a-kind Aggregate Liquidity Technology (ALT).

Fearless Wallet is a bespoke mobile wallet designed for the decentralized future on the Polkadot and Kusama ecosystem, with native support for iOS and Android platforms. A premium user experience, fast performance, and secure storage for your accounts. Fearless Wallet will integrate Polkaswap for easy, decentralized swaps of assets.
