NUT/ EQ token swap a full success
Equilibrium has conducted its NUT/EQ token swap with exciting results, achieving over $5.5 million USD. Users were able to swap their NUT tokens for EQ, our new cross-chain utility token, for a very advantageous rate.
The migration enabled by distributing EQ through the swap is a great way to bootstrap the start of our expanded project on Polkadot.
Quantstamp will audit Equilibrium
Equilibrium is partnering with Quantstamp, a leading international auditor whose mission is to secure the decentralized internet. Equilibrium is the first Polkadot-based project that will be professionally audited. While Quantstamp has wide experience, this is a completely new kind of audit — unprecedented on Polkadot.
Quantstamp will audit Equilibrium’s core components, including the code which governs its underlying business-logic on balances, its risk and price modules, and its “bailout” mechanics. Quantstamp’s audit is of key importance to ensure the quality of Equilibrium’s performance. Learn more.
Completion of our first W3F grant milestone
We have completed our first W3F grant stage. The grant’s focus is on advancing the Polkadot community as a whole. We are implementing a financial pallet that will provide out of the box solutions to calculate financial metrics based on externally collected information on e.g. price feeds. The grant’s focus is on advancing the Polkadot community overall. Our contributions via the grant will benefit Polkadot’s DeFi projects as a whole and will simplify their development on Substrate. We expect they will facilitate other projects’ migration to Polkadot from Ethereum and other chains. Read the whole article here.
The exact dates of the EQ token generation event and further product releases
We are excited to announce that we have set the date for the EQ token generation event on November 12, 2020. Starting on that date, NUT/ EQ token swap participants will be able to claim their EQ allocations on Equilibrium’s mainnet and start their vesting periods. Users should note that tokens will be non-transferrable until the end of November.
On November 5th, Equilibrium will add the core logic of its main products to the testnet, including the risk, pricing, balances, and bailsman modules. Users will be able to borrow USD-pegged stablecoin against a portfolio of virtual collateral and pay fees, or provide assets to safeguard borrowers in aggregate, and earn interest in return. Testing these functionalities is also a chance for participants to experience our projects’s user interface, which will allow them to conveniently work on multiple platforms simultaneously without new logins. Major assets will be available (BTC, ETH, EOS, EQ, DOT) as virtual tokens in a faucet mechanism at this stage.
Feedback from our users is extremely important for us. We invite our community to try out new products on the testnet and share your thoughts with us. Fill out this form to join our group of testers.
NUT & EOSDT listed on eosfinex
This month our EOS-based assets EOSDT and NUT were listed on eosfinex. This combined DEX and portfolio management solution based on EOSIO tech has launched the beta version of its mainnet, and it will bring Bitfinex’ liquidity to the EOSIO platform. Thanks to the connection with Bitfinex, EOSDT and NUT can draw on more liquidity than ever and are now tradable from any EOS wallet. Eosfinex’s tech updates have resulted in speedier trading time. Off-chain order matching allows for complex orders and a referral program now enables passive earning. Check out the news in full here.
