Spacewalk Bridge Launched: Integrating Stellar’s Assets with Polkadot’s DeFi

Spacewalk marks a significant advancement in blockchain-driven financial inclusivity, especially in emerging markets underbanked areas. Alongside the upcoming Forex DEX powered by Nabla, it facilitates decentralized cross-border transactions by integrating Stellar’s payment capabilities with Polkadot’s DeFi infrastructure.

New Pools on Zenlink

Pendulum and Amplitude have expanded offerings with seven new liquidity pools on Zenlink, with opportunities for LPs to earn rewards. This the first opportunity for Stellar holders to earn rewards with their XLM tokens. The new pools include XLM/DOT, XLM/PEN, PEN/DOT, PEN/GLMR on Pendulum, and XLM/KSM on Amplitude.

Offramping prototype

Introducing our initial offramping prototype: seamlessly convert $EURC and other Stellar stablecoins directly into bank accounts with zero manual input. This innovation leverages the Stellar network and Spacewalk, streamlining blockchain finance accessibility.
