Polis Partners with MCN Ventures to Build Cross Chain DeFi Ecosystem on Polis Chain2

Press Release: Polis is partnering with decentralized crypto venture capitalist MCN Ventures following the successful launch of the Polis Chain ecosystem. 

December 21st, 2021, Mexico City, Mexico – Community-based decentralized finance (DeFi) platform Polis is announcing a partnership with decentralized VC MCN Ventures. The collaboration, which is the first of its kind for Polis, will focus on building a cross-chain DeFi ecosystem on Polis Chain, Polis’ native blockchain.  

As part of the collaboration, four new projects are set to be deployed by MCN Ventures on Polis Chain in the next few weeks. These include decentralized stablecoins Xdollar and MinMax, farming ecosystem MCN Multiple, and Acheron, a third-party bridge for Polis Chain.   

Speaking about the collaboration, Andreas Meyer, Business DAO Manager commented: 

“For our project it is the first time that we will work together with a venture fund. The special thing is that MCN is completely decentralized and has a huge network in the DeFi space. This brings us many new opportunities to grow our Polis Chain for 2022. We are looking forward to this collaboration and the future new projects on our chain.”

Bill the Investor, a general partner of MCN Ventures also commented

“The partnership between MCN and Polis will help Polis to build its defi projects fast and greatly enhance the MCN ecosystem.”

The New Kid in DeFi

Polis’ collaboration with MCN Ventures comes after a swathe of developments at Polis following its entry into the DeFi space, marking its 4-year milestone. In November 2021, Polis launched Hades Swap, its first decentralized exchange (DEX) in a key pivot into the DeFi space. The DEX had over $2.5 million in trading volume in its first week, with Total Value Locked (TVL) peaking at $2.5 million too. To date, $6.5 million worth of crypto assets has been traded on the platform.

Moreover, Polis successfully launched the Olympus Network, a blockchain within the Polis ecosystem capable of running smart contracts. This will allow developers in the ecosystem to easily create decentralized applications (dApps), a feature which is critical for its operation in the DeFi space.  

Finally, in November 2021, Polis partnered with Meter,io to bridge the Olympus Network to Binance Smart Chain to facilitate transfers of stablecoin DAI. The Polis team has also been pursuing several additional partnerships which are due to materialize in the next few months.

Combined, these developments suggest Polis’ pivot towards DeFi is not only well-funded, but well-resourced, ensuring Polis is positioned to become a leader in the DeFi space.
