Bifrost SALP Supports the Acala Polkadot Crowdloan

Bifrost announced its support for the Acala Crowdloan , the DeFi hub of Polkadot. Bifrost is committed to providing liquidity to locked assets between multiple chains and establishing a liquidity bridge between heterogeneous chains.

During the Polkadot Crowdloan, Bifrost will help Crowdloan contributors access liquid DOT as derivative, 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 Acala Crowdloan, including derivative farming , liquidity mining , swaps and cross-chain token swaps .

Acala is an Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform optimized for DeFi and scaling DApps to Polkadot. The blockchain has built-in DeFi protocols for application developers to leverage, including a decentralized stablecoin (Acala Dollar — aUSD), a trustless staking derivatives (liquid DOT — LDOT), and a decentralized exchange.

Bifrost uses a combination of Polkadot multi-signature + Kusama Parachain for the SALP, to provide a more complete decentralized experience for the Acala 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.

This is the first stage of Bifrost’s support of Acala Crowdloan, 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.
