Zenlink, a cross-chain DEX protocol based on Polkadot, and Manta Network, a Polkadot privacy parachain, announced a strategic partnership to explore the field of “DeFi+Privacy” and to develop a DEX with privacy protection, providing practical use cases for “Polka DeFi Composability.”

With Manta Network’s zk-SNARK-based privacy protection technology, Zenlink will be able to provide privacy protection for all transactions generated on its DEX, bringing full end-to-end on-chain DeFi privacy protection services to users.

Meanwhile, Zenlink Slotvault will also be supporting Manta Network’s bid for the parachain slot. Zenlink SlotVault is a decentralized slot auction support application where community users will be able to support Manta Network’s parachain auction and crowdfunding through Zenlink SlotVault and receive additional ZLK (Zenlink Native Token) rewards.
