Evmos Volume 28

May 15, 2022

Welcome back, Evmos gang 🤲 Today’s update covers the latest community call as well as the network’s announcement rollout of their new products and apps: Diffusion, Cronus Finance, Kinesis Labs, Saddle Finance, and more.

Evmos’ most recent Community Call took place on May 12 to review the recent upgrade and following events. In an important update: Keplr users can now claim the Rektdrop on Evmos’ Dashboard using the “import” button. The airdrop must be imported to a MetaMask account to complete a rewards claim.

The weekly call featured co-founder Frederico to answer community questions regarding previous issues with Keplr and Ledger, testnet rewards, Evmos use cases, UX upgrades, and what’s to come for the ecosystem.

As the list of projects building on Evmos grows, many features - such as staking rewards - have the potential to be integrated. Of course, this remains at the discretion of governance and proposal results.

To hear the latest discourse, tune in to the recording below:

Evmos also published a feature post on Cronus Finance to celebrate the successful launch of its DEX. Striving to be the go-to DeFi Hub on Evmos, Cronus’ has already integrated several other projects in Evmos’ ecosystem, including bridge partnerships with Nomad, Connext, Multichain, and Celer cBridge.

The Cronus DEX allows Evmos users to swap tokens, add or create liquidity pools, and fast-track stablecoin trading. In addition, Cronus plans to introduce staking and farming, and stableswap product TetraSwap to help tackle liquidity fragmentation.

Between integrating Kinesis Labs’ stableswap, introducing Saddle Finance, and announcing the Cronus’ DEX upcoming TetraSwap feature, Evmos has made two main goals known:

  1. Increase TVL

  • Diffusion
  • Midas Capital
  • Kinesis Labs

  • Cronus
