Acala has already begun preparing the grounds to compete in Polkadot’s Parachain slot auctions
Acala needs to win a parachain slot in Polkadot’s parachain auctions (that’s yet to be announced) to build on Polkadot. However, everyone is pepped about Acala because its twin Kurara is doing great as a DEFI platform after it’s launch in the Kusama Blockchain.
People already expect Acala to be a well functioning DEFI platform for people to engage in activities of availing decentralised loans, providing liquidity, trading, staking in derivatives and earning lucrative APY’s on their deposits of digital assets.
Therefore, there would be a lot of community support for Acala to win the Polkadot parachain slot auctions whenever that begins.
Acala, is preparing for competing in Polkadot’s parachain auctions, by inviting it’s community supporters to register for the Acala Crowloan waitlist, which is a prelude before the actual launch of Crowdloan process.
Registered supporters then would be invited to participate in contributing to Acala’s Crowdloan where Acala enthusiasts would lock their DOT tokens into the virtual Crowdloan vault that’s built as a smart contract inside the Polkadot Blockchain.
These DOT tokens will strengthen Acala’s bid for the Polkadot’s parachain slot auctions.
As mentioned, the lent Dot tokens are stored inside a Crowdloan vault which is a smart contract inside Polkadot Blockchain, so they are not controlled by the Acala team. These lent Dot tokens are crowdloans lent by the community to support and strengthen Acala’s bid for the project to win a parachain slot in Polkadot’s parachain slot auctions.
The supporters who contribute DOT as parachain loans to Acala, get rewarded with Acala’s ACA tokens for the DOT they lent while they get their principal DOT tokens back after 2 years automatically by the smart contract, as they are programmed to release the tokens at this specified time period.
This arrangement ensures that ordinary Acala enthusiasts get early access to ACA tokens and Acala’s various financial dapps, which is an advantage as they benefit by being an early adopter of the Acala protocol while also being an early holder of the Acala’s native token ACA.
Therefore, when Acala launches, the early supporters of the protocol will get a fair share of the Acala Network ownership this way with ethical and fair distributions of ACA tokens.
More details about Acala’s Crowdloan waitlist can be read here…
My last article about Acala, talked about Acala team building Acala EVM+, for EMV based dapps to launch in the Acala Network and benefit with exposure to Acala DEFI.
So Acala has taken steps to be compatible with Ethereum too. I have also read that bridges to Bitcoin and Ethereum would be there so one can expect Acala to be interoperable having cross chain interaction capabilities.
Acala project has been supported with backing from prominent venture capital firms - Coinbase Ventures, Pantera Capital, Polychain Capital, Hypersphere besides other top firms, which only shows that Acala DEFI platform maybe having what it takes to be a good DEFI platform.
Hopefully, we can checkout the Acala platform and see it for what it is when it launches on Polkadot after the project secures a parachain slot after winning Polkadot’s parachain slot auctions.
