Circuits of Value : 2021 Updates

Ongoing: We are working on most of our roadmap items in parallel and delivery of these milestones can happen out of order as opportunities are discovered. Our current effort is focusing heavily on fully decentralizing our infrastructure. Hosting our front end on IPFS, attaching an Unstoppable domain. Currently vault contents are calculated using direct API calls to blockchain explorers like Maticvigil, Etherscan, blockchain.info and more. While this is okay for now, we will move to using Chainlink for these calls. This move will be most beneficial for 2 reasons. By providing balances via Chainlink, other smart contracts can calculate the contents and value of vaults, and by placing this function on-chain, we no longer have to rely on hosting platforms such as google cloud for this data (Making it more decentralized)

Upcoming:

  • Q1: Quickswap (Matic/Polygon Uniswap clone) LP Event
  • Q1: Tor.us integration into Emblem Vault (Sending of vaults directly using social media logins)
  • Q2: Binance Smart Chain (Emblem Vault can quickly and easily support any EVM chain)

Partnerships: Dark/Deflect/Prism: After a few DeFi yield farming experiments we have collected some valuable statistics from $Coval holders who have participated in staking and yield farming pools. We will take this information to determine better staking combinations to provide a balanced economic model that will benefit both $Coval ecosystem as well as our partners.
