Clearpool Brings Institutional-Grade DeFi to the Polygon Ecosystem
Clearpool, the first decentralized marketplace for uncollateralized institutional lending, is launching on Polygon to bring greater capital efficiency and improved user experience to the platform.
Clearpool will leverage the benefits of the Polygon network to allow for large-scale, institutional DeFi to be brought into Polygon’s DeFi ecosystem. By operating on Polygon, users will enjoy significant improvements to both speed and transaction fees. This will allow Clearpool’s substantial borrower network — which includes Jane Street, Amber, Auros, FBG Capital, Folkvang, and Wintermute — more efficient access to uncollateralized liquidity provided by a decentralized network of lenders.
An Update on Distribution of Staking Token Rewards
In the three years since the staking reward system was put in place, Polygon PoS has experienced explosive growth in adoption with over 19,000 decentralized apps running on the network without the need for Polygon direct support. Polygon is now home to some of the biggest Web3 projects such as Aave, Uniswap, OpenSea and well-known enterprises, including Meta, Stripe and Adobe. Underpinning it all is an ecosystem of validators who ensure the chain’s stability by verifying the authenticity and validity of transactions.
The validator community is currently also engaged in discussions around a formalized mechanism for the replacement of underperforming validators, which would put the Polygon PoS network one step closer to becoming fully permissionless. We expect to see even more progress towards decentralization of the Polygon PoS network will be made over the next 12 to 18 months.
Acentrik, Decentralized Data Marketplace now in Enterprise Release, is on Polygon Mainnet
Acentrik, a strategic initiative by Mercedes-Benz, is now deployed on Polygon Mainnet as part of its enterprise release.
Powered by Blockchain Technology, Acentrik is a decentralized data marketplace developed by Mercedes-Benz, using Ocean Protocol technology – facilitating data sharing and monetization for enterprises across domains.
By deploying on the Polygon PoS as the 1st chain, Acentrik ensures transactions on blockchain are performed with significantly low gas fees, translating this cost benefit to users as they harness the value of their enterprise data.
