JUNE DROPAltair PLO, Community Call #14, Tinlake Round-Up and more!

Published date: July 8 2021

Hello Centrifuge World!

June was an eventful month! We’ve launched our Kusama parachain and our crowdloan is now live, Tinlake hit over $25M and is rapidly growing as always, catch up on our last community call and our AMA with Parity Tech, and of course real-life events are officially BACK! Read on to find out more…

Our Altair Crowdloan is NOW LIVE! 

Kusama parachain auctions are well underway, but we saved the best until last. Altair is the parachain that will allow you to tokenize real-world assets and finance them on the Kusama network.

For each KSM you stake, you receive 400 AIR tokens and the first 250 participants will receive a 10% bonus! Sound too good to be true? You can find out more about the rewards, and how to contribute in the post linked below.

Tinlake hit over $25M TVL! 

TVL is growing rapidly, and there are more pools bringing more Real-World Assets to DeFi. 4 pools are currently open, including one that just launched. Check out the Tinlake Dapp for more details on the open pools.


Community call #14 ☎️

This community call was focused on giving an insight into how Issuers and AOs launch pools on Tinlake. Head of BD Colin Cunningham talks us through the process for Issuers to get pools up and running on Tinlake, and you can also learn from Issuer New Silver, the first to originate real estate loans on DeFi, about what’s happening on the ground in the fix and flip housing market and up and coming opportunities with Tinlake Pools. Missed out? You can watch the full video below.

The world of DeFi is hitting mainstream, and we were excited to be part of a report on cryptocurrencies that was included in the Times UK Business section. Educating traditional finance about crypto is always a challenge, Tinlake offers a great entry point to those who are skeptical about it, and co-founder Martin Quensel gives an excellent breakdown of what we do, one even non-crypto natives can understand
