This Christmas we want to give back to our community. The trust and support you have given us have been incredibly rewarding, and we want to take a moment to thank you all for your enthusiasm around Polkastarter. The MVP launch is just around the corner! Once again, thank you all.

We couldn’t be happier with the success of our liquidity rewards program since its launch on the 28th of October, with over 300 token holders providing over $1,3 million in total liquidity on Uniswap.

Polkastarter is excited to announce a technical partnership with Covalent, a unified API service that brings together data points from blockchain systems to serve the needs of DeFi, and other blockchain applications. Polkastarter enables decentralized projects to raise and exchange capital cheap and fast in a secure and compliant environment using ERC-20 based assets and more. This partnership between Polkastarter and Covalent will bring more transparency and anti-scam measures to token sales facilitated on the Polkastarter Ecosystem.

Covalent brings rich data from the blockchain to inform investors about tokens, token projects, transactions and historical data of crypto-assets and wallets. By adding Covalent’s services to Polkastarter, they will act as an additional data source to validate the actions of wallets. Should token sale projects choose to use these tools, they will be able to see if wallets have been used for illegal purposes such as money laundering and other suspicious activities. Additionally, token sale projects can link the team’s identifying data to their token sale pools to boost trust and transparency to potential buyers. …

Polkastarter is a permissionless DEX built for cross-chain token pools and auctions, enabling projects to raise capital in a decentralized and interoperable environment based on Polkadot.

Polkastarter is inspired by Polkadot’s permissionless and cross-chain features, with the vision of enabling projects to raise capital in a secure, immutable, decentralized, and trusted environment.

Polkastarter enables projects to raise funds from a community of professional and retail investors. A strong fundraising and token swap environment only thrives when there is an active and engaged community present that can effectively bootstrap network effects for projects that use Polkastarter to launch.

The future of fund-raising will be decentralized, but it will only scale if it permits interoperable token swaps through a well-governed platform and incentivized community. …

Decentralized exchanges are paving the future of digital assets, no less due to the explosive growth of DeFi. At Polkastarter, we strongly believe that the future of DeFi won’t be limited to a single exchange.

Buying and moving assets between blockchains with ease will become a necessity rather than a nice-to-have. This is why we’re building a permissionless DEX for cross-chain token pools and auctions.

In this post, we want to share the key reasons why we chose Polkadot as the backbone of our platform.

The Goal
