We’re excited to announce the Equilibrium Astar XCM integration! Through Astar’s EVM-based functionality, EQ and EQD will enjoy cross-functionalities, allowing Equilibrium users to leverage their assets as liquidity inside various DeFi protocols connected to Astar.
XCM enhances blockchain interoperability, allowing native asset transfer between connected chains, thus broadening the user base and increasing participation through expanded asset utilization. Networks seeking to extend their market presence through interoperable mechanisms benefit from XCM’s advantages.
Building Meaningful Relationships in The Dotsama Ecosystem
Equilibrium Astar XCM integration continues the developing relationship between the two platforms, improving interoperability and efficiency for community members in both ecosystems.
The XCMASTR integration unlocks opportunities for Astar users by enabling EQD minting using ASTR tokens as collateral, access to crypto borrowing facilities within Equilibrium, and trade the ASTR/EQD pair once supported on the orderbook DEX.
Additionally, the XCM integration streamlines EQ & EQD token transfer into the Astar network. Through Astar-based dApps such as ArthSwap, Starlay Finance, or AstridDAO, users access EQ and EQD liquidity opportunities.
We have exciting farming announcements ahead, as we plan to open a EQD stablecoin liquidity pool for the Astar ecosystem DEX soon. Users will receive rewards for bootstrapping the upcoming pools.
Stay tuned for further updates!
