Bifrost x Calamari

As the canary network of Manta, Calamari will be first rolling out Maripay and Mariswap as on-chain privacy products, as it paves the way for privacy as a utility service within the entire Kusama ecosystem. Using zkSNARKs with a focus on DeFi, Calamari Network will open the opportunities for financial tools built on Web 3.0 by offering a layer of decentralized privacy. Bifrost intends to leverage Calamari’s privacy technology to accelerate the development of its own projects including privacy-preserving derivatives.

Calamari will participate in the second batch of Kusama slot auctions as one of the strongest competitors. In an effort to assist in the Calamari crowdloan, Bifrost will partner with Calamari to offer its SALP protocol. Using the SALP protocol, users will be able to join derivatives mining with vsKSM, and receive Bifrost’s native token $BNC as a reward. This is on top of the $KMA rewards that users receive as part of the Calamari crowdloan rewards. Once Calamari wins the auction, the vsKSM will be tradable for swap between KSM and other assets effortlessly.
