Plasm connects Cosmos

Plasm Network - a multi-chain dApps hub on Polkadot that supports Ethereum and layer 2 solutions like ZK Rollups successfully develops their bridge with Secret Network - the first-ever privacy-enabled Layer 1 blockchain, featuring privacy-preserving smart contracts (“secret contracts”).

From now on, users can turn Polkadot-based assets into Secret Tokens, which combine the programmability of ERC-20s with the privacy of coins like Zcash or Monero.

Shiden’s Kusama PLO strategy

Shiden - one of the Kusama Parachain candidates announced Parachain Auction Strategy. The strategy will use 15% of the total supply (6,750,000 SDN) and bid for 1-8 slots (7days×6weeks×8slots=336 days).

Slot auction participants will be required to lock KSM tokens for one month and have nine months of vesting to receive SDN tokens automatically. The project will introduce a new incentive scheme and recommend participants to join crowdloan as early as they start the campaign.
