Meet the 200% To The Moon Bonus Winners

It’s the first time Equilibrium has offered a bonus this huge! The 200% To The Moon Bonus was a short-term bonus for 12 hours in support of our project. Users had to join the waitlist to receive a priority right when we distributed rewards. 

Check out the list of our lucky winners here.

Join the Waitlist to be the first to know about more limited-time bonus events that are coming soon! If you have already joined the list without leaving your Polkadot address, please add it here. We’ll need it to distribute awards.


1 Million DOT Is a Lot!

We are celebrating 1M $DOT collected thanks to our contributors, a great milestone for Equilibrium! Another Flash Bonus event is coming next week. Put your email on the waitlist & leave your Polkadot address that we use to distribute rewards, right here.


How Genshiro Is Sustaining the Crypto Market Turmoil

Recently, crypto markets saw a crash that wiped out somewhere between $200-$300 billion of total crypto market cap. To stand that, we had allocated almost $50 million USD worth of GENS tokens to our users as rewards for supporting our project. But under Genshiro crowdloan rules, only 10% of these tokens were available immediately to users after the distribution event. In total, approximately 30 million GENS tokens actually entered circulation, which is equivalent to approximately $2 million USD at the time of this writing.

This is precisely the kind of event that our system was designed to sustain. Why? Read the explanation in this article.


Our Developers Offered Multiple Use Cases for GENS

This is probably one of the most exciting upcoming developments. We’ve come up with several unique opportunities to use GENS to your advantage. All of the use cases vary according to the difficulty mode. Some of them are ready to use, some are preparing for rollout. Here are just a few case examples:

  • Liquidity farming: the more GENS tokens you hold inside the system, the higher your liquidity farming rewards are, with the potential to grow as much as 100%.
  • Crowdloans: users may borrow DOT or KSM using their GENS as collateral, then further use that borrowed liquidity to participate in Polkadot and Kusama auctions, leveraging their exposure to the ecosystem projects.
  • Triple composite use case: this one is complex but exciting! To know how much you will earn at the end of the day, read this article.


Equilibrium Has Partnered with Polkadex 

We have allocated a chunk of 2,000,000 EQ tokens for contributors who lock up their DOTs through xDOT with 10 EQ: 1 DOT on the top of Polkadex rewards scheme. You can read more here

Polkadex invited Alex to the exciting AMA session where they discussed all things Polkadex Crowdloan, introduced Equilibrium to Polkadexers, and chatted about future synergies between the two parachain candidates. We’ll definitely post a recap in our socials, so stay tuned! 


Moonbeam Friendly Bundle

With Moonbeam Network, we offered a friendship bundle bonus that worked till January 22. It was valid for those who had voted for Moonbeam and later on voted for Equilibrium with xDOT. If you’ve missed this offer, find more parachain candidates to support here!
