Bifrost announced its support for the Astar crowdloan, the multi chain Polkadot DApp hub. Bifrost is committed to providing liquidity to locked assets between multiple chains and establishing a liquidity bridge between heterogeneous chains.
During this Polkadot crowdloan event, Bifrost will cooperate with Astar to help crowdloan participants access liquid derivatives of staked DOT, creating innovative solutions for users participating in the Polkadot crowdloan and competitive opportunities under the multi-chain development pattern.
Bifrost’s advantage is to mint fully decentralized liquid derivatives based on the Kusama Parachain, and provide rich derivatives use cases for contributors participating in the Astar crowdloan, including derivative farming, liquidity mining, swaps and cross-chain token swaps. Support for the Astar crowdloan event will help Bifrost unlock a new opportunity with the Astar community to introduce the Slot Auction Liquidity Protocol (SALP), and encourage more users to participate in the Astar crowdloan.
Astar is a high-performance smart contract platform on Polkadot, natively supporting EVM and WASM and providing layer2 scalibility and multi-chain deployment support. Astar has its unique Build2Earn meachnism: all devlopers on Astar Network can have a sustainable revenue from Astar’s DApp Staking mechnism based on decentralized voting. Astar’s canary network, Shiden Network, is the 3rd parachain on Kusama Network.
Bifrost uses a combination of Polkadot multi-signature + Kusama Parachain for the SALP, to provide a more complete experience for the Astar crowdloan. This innovative crowdloan liquidity solution will give users the opportunity to increase capital utilization during the 96-week crowdloan lock-up period and make choices about their own risk appetite. Astar will assist Bifrost, provide technical support in the crowdloan docking process, and promote the long-term cooperation between Bifrost and Astar.
The integration is in the first phase, and a final version will be released once Bifrost onboards as a Polkadot Parachain. The multisig will be represented by onchain logic under the Bifrost SALP pallet, which will be the same as the Bifrost SALP mechanism on Kusama.
