SKALE on Anthem, onboarding NEAR, Ethermint, DOT transfers, and more!
We will support SKALE staking on Anthem! Learn more about our involvement with SKALE here.
We made the decision to onboard NEAR and will hopefully be live when staking is introduced on their mainnet in the coming weeks!
We are currently rank 15 in the Mission Control The Graph incentivized testnet, find the leaderboard here.
Snapshot data from September 2, 2020:
Terra hit the 2 million accounts milestone!
Historical data from columbus-3 is in beta on Anthem. If you are staking $LUNA, connect your address and see the stablecoin rewards you have earned over time - a proper rollout of the entire history is coming in a few weeks!
Terra released a big roadmap update for 2020 with details on the next two upgrades:
columbus-4: bringing CosmWasm smart contracts, various tools, and Anchor v1 to Terra, slated for Oct 3.
columbus-5: bringing interoperability and Anchor v2 with support for interchain assets (Cosmos, Polkadot, Solana), expected late 2020/Q1 2021.
DOT became transferable and is currently trading at $6.14 per token, implying a Polkadot market capitalization of over $6bn. If you are a DOT holder, help our validators get into the active set by nominating them through Lunie or Polkadot JS.
Ethermint v0.1.0, bringing EVM capabilities to Cosmos SDK chains, was released!
The Serum project built on Solana launched a first MVP of their DEX, learn more here.

The SKL token sale will take place Sep 3-5 with a maximum purchase limit of $1,153 per participant. SKALE’s staking launch was delayed and will commence Oct 1 (if you plan to stake, you will need to do so a few days before). Be aware that it will cost around $20-100 to delegate given the currently high gas prices on Ethereum.
Celo-based mobile payments app Valora is about to be accessible for early access.
