October and November were very important months for Zenlink, as Zenlink successfully launched on Moonriver & Bifrost, and opened a new era of Polkadot multi-chain DeFi.
The following is a summary of the past two months.
Notes: Zenlink mainly consists of two core parts: Zenlink DEX Protocol and DApp. Zenlink Protocol will implement a simple, highly versatile and pluggable DEX Module, which can enable parachains to access DEX capabilities after the Module is deployed on the parachain in a plug-and-pull manner; at the same time, we will also create an efficient DEX dedicated cross-chain protocol to realize the liquidity sharing between the DEX Module on different parachains.
Zenlink DApp is a front-end interactive product based on Zenlink DEX Protocol to facilitate users to use cross-chain DEX without awareness.
- The EVM and Module versions of the Zenlink DEX Protocol have been deployed on the Moonriver and Bifrost Kusama parachains respectively.
- SlowMist has completed a security audit of the Zenlink DEX Protocol EVM version, which includes the three major components of DEX, Bootstrap, and Staking.
- The Zenlink DEX Protocol Module version has been delivered to SlowMist with Bifrost for a security audit, which is expected to be completed in the next few weeks.
- ZLK on Moonriver completes open-source contract code in the block explorer: https://moonriver.moonscan.io/token/0x0f47ba9d9Bde3442b42175e51d6A367928A1173B
- Bootstrap has been deployed on both Moonriver and Bifrost parachains and running successfully.
- Staking is also deployed on both Moonriver and Bifrost parachains and has been running smoothly for 3 phases so far.
- ZLK (Zenlink Native Token) was officially issued on Moonriver and Bifrost.
- Zenlink has partnered with Anyswap to build the Moonriver <> Shiden ZLK cross-chain bridge.
- Added the “Markets” feature, which is convenient for users to quickly browse the global and collect favorite pairs.
