On April 28, the Polkadot Cross-chain DEX Protocol Zenlink partnered with the Polkadot Wasm Contract Technology Lab — Patract. The two parties will jointly explore the Wasm contract solution in the Polkadot Ecosystem.
Currently, Zenlink mainly develops DEX Module based on Zenlink Protocol v0.3, but the Wasm contract version is still at the v0.1 stage. In order to build a richer and more flexible application scenario, Zenlink plans to upgrade the Wasm contract version to the latest version. In this cooperation, Zenlink will use the development tool — Redspot provided by Patract and the contract running sandbox environment — Europa to upgrade the Zenlink Wasm contract version, which will greatly improve the team’s development efficiency and further enhance the generality of Zenlink Protocol.
At the same time, Zenlink will also join the Patract Open Platform. Patract Open Platform was initiated by Patract, aiming to promote the large-scale popularization of Wasm contract technology in the Polkadot ecosystem. Through extensive cooperation with the Polkadot projects, media and investment institutions related to the Wasm contract, provide brand promotion and investment support, jointly promote the construction of public infrastructure and the evolution of contract technology, and create a strong Wasm contract technology alliance. The founding members that have joined include Plasm, Bifrost, Acala, SubDAO, etc.
Patract is providing solutions for the development of Parachains and DApps in the Wasm smart contract ecosystem of Polkadot. We help the community to design and develop on-chain contract modules and Runtime support, and provide DApp developers with full-stack tools and services support, covering development, testing, debugging, deployment, monitoring, data provider and front-end development stages.
Zenlink is committed to building a new generation cross-chain DEX network. By integrating the Zenlink DEX Module, Zenlink can enable parachains to access DEX capabilities and share liquidity with other parachains quickly; Zenlink DEX aggregator can link all DEX DApps on Polkadot. Users can not only complete the exchange easily and quickly but also enjoy a low slippage transaction experience. ZLK, Zenlink native token, provides a fair and transparent governance mechanism and reasonable value capture methods, which can be used to motivate ecosystem users to participate in network development for a long time.
Zenlink is an important member of the Polkadot ecosystem and is sponsored by the Web3 Foundation. For now, two grants have been delivered successfully. Furthermore, Zenlink has also completed the prototype verification of cross-chain assets trading between Polkadot parachains at 2020–12–12 04:00:00 UTC, which means that the first cross-chain dex user case on Polkadot has been verified successfully based on Zenlink DEX Module and Assets Module.
