Acala Network Mandala Festival Event

Acala Network Mandala Festival Event

    It’s perhaps time to reiterate Acala’s main mission: enable an interconnected, autonomous, efficient and sophisticated cross-blockchain finance ecosystem. Mandala Fest then becomes a celebration of this growing community and the wealth of possibility that awaits in building web3. Acala also believe that web3 should be for everyone and want Acala to be open to all builders: from crypto enthusiasts to node runners, developers, bloggers, economists, marketers, deep thinkers and the curious.

The most recent updates in making cross chain DeFi a reality are as follows:

  • Acala’s full-fledged DeFi suite is now open: multi-collateralized stablecoin supporting DOT, LDOT, renBTC as collaterals, staking derivative and decentralized exchange
  • Laminar trading: aUSD can now be transferred to the Laminar Chain to create synthetic assets like synthetic fiat (e.g. EUR, USD), and for margin trading a variety of instruments e.g. forex, gold, stocks and synthetic crypto pairs
  • Ren x Acala collaboration is live: Reputable inter-blockchain asset bridge Ren built with Acala by deploying its RenVM bridge module on the Acala Network. The BTC gateway is provided by RenVM, while the minting and burning renBTC on Acala is provided by the gateway module.

Two upfront benefits that Ren users can instantly enjoy:

  1. A brand new account only holding freshly minted renBTC can perform any transaction on Acala without needing a fee token. Thanks to Acala’s FlexiFee feature, tokens like renBTC are integrated natively as one of the default fee tokens alongside with ACA, aUSD and DOT.
  2. Fees for minting renBTC can be waived without compromising security. Acala see this as essential to boost the usage of renBTC on Acala and within the wider Polkadot ecosystem.

Participation Rules:

  • Use the balance of USD as the unit of account
  • Profit calculated as ending balance — beginning balance

The rules for ranking of trading competition :

  • Snapshots will be taken for both Acala and Laminar networks at the beginning of the trading competition; the total net value of various assets (including debts) will be calculated based on the price feed at the time as the initial balance.
  • Another snapshot will be taken at the end of the competition, using the feed price at that time as the final balance. Cross-chain transfers (e.g. transfers between Acala and Laminar) are not counted, while transfers between addresses are counted as capital.
  • Profit margin = total value of final balance / (total value of initial balance + capital sum correction) — 100%, all accounts are ranked according to this function

The following are included in the balance calculation:

Balances of all assets:
— Acala : aUSD, ACA, renBTC, XBTC, DOT, LDOT
— Laminar : aUSD, LAMI, synthetic assets

Balances of all DeFi positions:
— Acala : CDP (net value of collateral value minus debt value), share value in Deposit & Earn
— Laminar : margin position value
