Zenlink Project Updates (December 2021 — February 2022)

Technology/product progress

DEX Protocol

  • Zenlink DEX Protocol officially integrates with Moonbeam and launches the liquidity incentive program.
  • The deployment of Zenlink Farming v2 to the Moonriver and Moonbeam parachains provides the community with a new Farming mechanism that is long-term and includes multiple rewards.
  • Deploy Zenlink Bootstrap v2 on Moonriver and Bifrost. Users can participate in Booststrap to provide liquidity and receive additional token rewards such as ZLK.
  • The team refactored the WASM version of the Zenlink DEX Protocol and deployed it to the Gear network’s staging testnet. the Gear ecosystem’s excellent infrastructure makes the contract work very well. We are looking forward to working with Gear on the WASM contract.
  • We have published the security audit report of the Zenlink DEX Protocol EVM contract, the security audit company is SlowMist. And the corresponding smart contract code is open-sourced on the Moonscan (Moonriver&Moonbeam) and Github.
  • The security audit of the Zenlink DEX Protocol Substrate version was also completed by the SlowMist team and the audit report is expected to be officially published in March 2022.
  • Zenlink’s public benefit substrate module, Merkle Pallet, has been integrated into Bifrost and is working successfully. It uses the Merkle proof method to provide the Dotsama community with a convenient, fast and safe way to airdrop.
  • “Hybrid AMM” is under intense development. The “Stable AMM” part will provide a low slippage trading experience for stable coins, while the smart route will connect the “Stable AMM” and “Standard AMM” to provide users with more favorable all-currency trading prices.


  • X-Transfer feature launched! X-Transfer allows users to complete one-stop “cross-chain transfer + swap” within Zenlink DEX DApp, which already supports various assets including KSM(xcKSM)/KAR/RMRK(xcRMRK)/KINT(xcKINT), etc.
  • The “Limit Order” beta is now live on Moonriver and Moonbeam, allowing users to set prices to make trades using limit order.
  • Optimized page request loading. By removing redundant API requests and using multicall to merge web3 requests, the home page loads faster, and by parallelizing wss requests, users can see all of the farming pools on 3 parachains at the same time without wallet connect.
  • We have developed an API for real-time ZLK circulation, which allows users to see real-time ZLK issuance in the upper right corner of the DApp and search for it on CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko, etc.
  • The UI of the Swap module has been upgraded so that users can now see the dollar value of traded assets in real-time.
  • The team is working on the Zenlink DEX SDK, which connects multiple parachains that Zenlink has deployed, and developers will get a simple and smooth development experience to seamlessly use the Zenlink DEX Protocol in any application.
