Kyber announces $30M liquidity mining program to enhance liquidity on both Ethereum and Polygon
We are thrilled to announce that Kyber Network is launching its Dynamic Market Maker, a new protocol in Kyber’s liquidity hub, Kyber DMM on the Polygon network which is set to deploy on 30th June.
With the vision to deliver a sustainable liquidity infrastructure for DeFi, Kyber extends to Polygon and launches ‘Rainmaker’ — Kyber’s very first liquidity mining program on Polygon and Ethereum with an estimated $30M in rewards to liquidity providers to enhance liquidity on Polygon and Ethereum.
The launch of Kyber DMM on Polygon will enable users to take advantage of Polygon’s high-speed and low-cost infrastructure during trading and liquidity provision. A portion of trading fees generated on Kyber DMM will go to KyberDAO, complementing the existing Kyber DMM protocol deployment on Ethereum.
Kyber DMM’s capital efficiency and flexible liquidity protocols can cater to Polygon’s diverse ecosystem of Dapps and DeFi use cases, and enable liquidity providers to maximize the use of their capital.
Kyber’s Rainmaker Liquidity Mining Program
With the aim to incentivize liquidity providers and developers to use Kyber DMM, Kyber launches its first-ever liquidity mining program, “Rainmaker’’ starting from 30th June which will distribute an estimated total of $30M in rewards to eligible Kyber DMM liquidity providers (LPs). Liquidity providers will receive DMM LP tokens (representing their liquidity pool share) which they can stake in the eligible liquidity mining pools to earn additional KNC or MATIC (Kyber’s & Polygon’s governance tokens) rewards on top of protocol fees during the program period.
The Liquidity Mining program on Polygon will run for 2 months. Kyber and Polygon will be distributing 2.52M KNC tokens (~$5M) and $500,000 worth of MATIC tokens respectively across six eligible amplified pools:
These rewards can be used to add liquidity to the KNC or MATIC pools to earn even more rewards. In addition, KNC can be staked on KyberDAO to participate in Kyber’s governance and earn voting rewards.
“Liquidity is a crucial element in any DeFi ecosystem and we’re glad to work with Kyber Network to help enhance liquidity on Polygon through the Kyber DMM protocol!”
- Sandeep Nailwal, Co-founder and COO, Polygon
“Through this partnership, Polygon’s vibrant ecosystem will gain access to the highly capital efficient and flexible Kyber DMM protocol, and we believe this will empower more liquidity providers, traders, and developers to effectively engage in the world of decentralized finance.”
- Loi Luu, Co-Founder, Kyber Network
About Kyber Network
Kyber Network aims to deliver a sustainable liquidity infrastructure for DeFi. As a liquidity hub, Kyber connects liquidity from various protocols and sources to provide the best rates to takers such as Dapps, aggregators, DeFi platforms, and retail users.
Polygon is the first well-structured, easy-to-use platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. Its core component is Polygon SDK; a modular, flexible framework that supports building and connecting Secured Chains like Plasma, Optimistic Rollups, zkRollups, Validium, etc, and Standalone Chains like Polygon POS, designed for flexibility and independence. Polygon’s scaling solutions have seen widespread adoption with 400+ Dapps, ~200M txns, and ~1.3M+ unique users.
Polygon Zero’s mission is simple: to use zero-knowledge proofs to scale Ethereum to a billion users, without compromising decentralization or security. Achieving this requires fast and efficient proof systems. Today, we’re excited to share Plonky2, a major milestone for zero-knowledge cryptography. Plonky2 is a recursive SNARK that is 100x faster than existing alternatives and natively […]
TL;DR: We are excited to announce that Mir, a startup building groundbreaking ZK tech, is joining the Polygon family in a $400M* deal. Mir gathered a team of talented cryptographers and engineers, and after almost two years of work developed the world’s fastest ZK scaling technology. The Mir team is now joining Polygon in order […]
TL;DR: We are excited to announce the newest member of the Polygon solution suite - Polygon Miden, an upcoming STARK-based, EVM-compatible rollup. The project is led by Bobbin Threadbare, former Facebook’s core ZK researcher who led the development of Winterfell. Today we are releasing Polygon Miden’s core component - Miden VM, the first open-source STARK-based […]
When it comes to deploying on Ethereum, there is only one place that lets developers easily migrate their projects, offers a broad range of scaling options and has some of the industry’s lowest transaction rates. These are just some of the reasons why the number of teams using Polygon jumped 100-fold in the past year. […]
Welcome to 2022! This is shaping up to be another amazing year for the Polygon ecosystem. But after an absolutely breakthrough 2021, it's got big shoes to fill. Over the past year, Polygon made big strides toward accomplishing its mission of bringing the next billion users to Ethereum. The network’s low-fee infrastructure attracted some of […]
Earlier this month, Polygon’s core development team with help from bug bounty platform Immunefi successfully fixed a critical network vulnerability. Considering the nature of this upgrade, it had to be executed without attracting too much attention. We are now ready to give the full account of what happened. A group of whitehat hackers notified Immunefi, […]
