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 October 5, 2022 Ecosystem updates!

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

Some say that the number 10 symbolises the completion of a cycle, as the tenth update to the Integrated plan on the tenth month of the year, perhaps there is some truth to that. Today we will focus on cycles that are ongoing, more specifically, the development and implementation of the SORA Synthetics platform XST token.

The XST token was introduced at the 2022 SORA Economic Forum, see the article for more details

Last week during Dr. Makoto Takemiya’s opening presentation for the second annual SORA Economic Forum, the XST token was introduced, along with an article providing more details and a timeline for its implementation. Yesterday, XOR-ETH and XOR-DAI liquidity pools for XST farming were made available on the Demeter farming platform and on Polkaswap. As mentioned in the XST introduction article, starting on the 4th of October, 1337 XST in total will be available, what was not specified is that the amount will be divided 50–50 between both pools, meaning there will be 668.5 XST per pool. These pools will only be active for 30 days, so act now if you want to participate. More information on the XST token and tokenomics updates will be available soon, stay tuned!

Watch in full: Dr Makoto Takemiya at 2022 SORA Economic Forum — SORA Ab Chao ❤️‍🔥

For a complete recap of the 2022 SORA Economic Forum head over to soranomics.com and watch in full recordings from all 8 speakers on topics ranging from CBDC, Central Banking, Money Creation and Macroeconomics to Blockchain, Technology, Regulation, Credit and Quantitave Easing in DeFi by the likes of Professor Richard Werner, Tim Swanson, Johannes Duong, Ben Senn and many more

Moving on to other developments, after the detour from the Merge, the team is now focusing all its efforts on the SORA Kusama Parachain Bridge. It is currently halfway ready, the architecture has been determined and now the team is hard at work buidling. Good news on the Substrate 4 front, it has been moved to the test environment and very soon it will be available on the public testnet for everyone to try, and additionally, XSTUSD Base Pairs will also be on the testnet! This also means that very soon all the SORA network tokens will be visible on Polkadot.js and wallets such as Fearless Wallet, there will be plenty to try out and we hope to have your support!

Beefy proofs and the Trustless Multi-EVM bridge have not received significant developments, on one hand, we are still on the lookout for releases from the team at Parity, while the multi-EVM bridge is undergoing QA. Don’t despair, critical infrastructure such as bridges need attention to every detail, so this is a process that cannot be hurried. Better to be safe than sorry.

The Kusama Treasury proposal is undergoing voting by the Kusama council

Finally, the Fearless Wallet desktop app and browser extension are ongoing steady development, please look forward to a beautiful, cutting-edge, safe, and intuitive experience that will allow you to harness all the functions you have come to know and love from the mobile Fearless Wallet version as well as some great additions to interact in a sleek, seamless and most of all, fearless way with your favorite Dotsama dApps within your browser!

That’s all for this fortnight’s You Are Here, see you in two weeks for more updates!

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.
