  • On July 3rd, the Polkadot & Friends offline Polkadot party hosted by PolkaWorld was held in Hangzhou. The theme of the event is Kusama Parachain Slot Auction & Crowdloan. Under the topic of how to achieve interoperability in the multi-chain era, Polkadot ecological projects Bifrost, Acala, ChainX, Plasm and Zenlink attended the forum.

  • On July 5th, the online AMA hosted by PolkaBase-how Polkadot would expect to see the Kusama slot auction, invited Tyrone. Regarding how to look at the solutions and positioning of the currently obtained slot projects, Tyrone said that for Bifrost, Kusama’s parachain bidding costs are more in line with Bifrost’s expectations. Since Bifrost, as the basic DeFi protocol, requires a large number of transaction messages to be sent and invoked on the main network, the parachain is just needed for Bifrost. The sooner the parachain is taken, the more value it will generate to Bifrost and the project parties that bid for the parachain.

  • On July 5th, PolkaWarriors invited Lurpis to have an online AMA in its Telegram Global community. Question: What are the benefits of Bifrost Token (BNC) for the correct operation of the network? Why is it necessary? How does it arrange incentive mechanisms between vote pledgers and vote consumers? Lurpis stated that BNC will capture value in four aspects, namely: derivatives liquidity fees, bidding Slash collateral, governance certificates, and staking income capture.

How to ensure liquidity under continuous selling pressure?

Bifrost guarantees the depth of liquidity under extreme conditions by aggregating the liquidity of heterogeneous chains. Details: https://wiki.bifrost.finance/publicity/crowdloan-multi-signer
