Zap March Update 2019
Zap has launched a completely decentralized tokenized bonding curve curation market, comprised entirely of smart contracts live on mainnet!
Use the platform now at admin.zap.org (use metamask).
When we initially wrote our 2017 whitepaper, our main focus was utilizing this crypto-economic market mechanism for connecting smart contracts with data. As we continued to develop out the platform, we realized the potential of bonding curves extends well beyond this initial use-case.
One of these new use-cases, which is currently available on our platform, is the ability to launch an ICO!
Generating a curve that issues erc20 secondary tokens eliminates the need for liquidity, exchange listings, or market makers as participants can enter and exit positions and have an increase or decrease in value by interacting directly with the contracts.
Keep an eye out for new use-case releases as we continue to develop and fine-tune future templates.
Here are some bonding stats as of today, March 29th:
Number of Dots issued:
CoinCap.io — 44,650 Dots
BinanceSignal — 9,146 Dots
TrendSignals — 12,784 Dots
Poloniex — 2,893 Dots
BitStamp — 1,831 Dots
YahooQuotes — 1,976 Dots
Fomopoints — 600 Dots
Bittrex- 265 Dots
Binance — 118 Dots
Number of Zap bonded:
CoinCap.io — 1,309,383.58 Zap
BinanceSignal — 87,559.23 Zap
TrendSignals — 127.84 Zap
Poloniex — 62,112.71 Zap
BitStamp — 29,588.96 Zap
YahooQuotes — 33,364.76 Zap
Fomopoints — 6,003 Zap
Bittrex — 71,815 Zap
Binance — 14,632 Zap
In total, there are currently 74,263 Dots issues across all oracles. The total number of Zap bonded across all oracles amounts to 1,614,587.08 Zap.
In our previous monthly update, there were 38,096 total Dots issued and 812,389.03 total Zap bonded. This means a percent increase for bonded Zap of +98.75% and for Dots in circulation of +94.94% between these two updates!
To encourage the most diverse community of long term tokenholders and, as we anticipate, participants in the Zap marketplace and related ecosystem, Zap management has locked up (restricted from sale) 240 million tokens. This is in accord with the Zap original projected budget released in 2017.
Here’s a recent article where we detail what we’ve built and some exciting tools on the way: https://medium.com/the-zap-project/zaps-decentralized-platform-b11cda2797d
Be sure to see all the new endpoints that have been added since the launch of mainnet at admin.zap.org.
For any (eventual) use-case on our platform, anyone in the world can run a server, host an oracle, and list it on our platform. In order to fuel the adoption of this technology, we will continue to focus heavily on developing templates in order to make our platform as developer friendly as possible. We will also continue to pursue valuable partnerships where our platform would be utilized.
This week, trading began for Zap on the decentralized IDEX exchange!
