What Is Bifrost (BNC)?
Bifrost (BNC) is a Polkadot-based parachain designed to provide liquidity and staking without nominating delays. A decentralized finance (DeFi) project in the Polkadot ecosystem, Bifrost allows users to deposit their staking tokens and mint vTokens (Staking Derivatives Voucher Token) to obtain staking liquidity, as well as receive staking rewards when a token is locked by a smart contract. With Bifrost, you can convert a proof-of-stake (PoS) token into a vToken; for example, DOT can be converted into vDOT.
Bifrost is a web3 derivatives protocol that provides decentralized cross-chain liquidity for staked assets. By leveraging on the cross-consensus message (XCM) it can provide cross-chain liquid staking services for multiple chains.
Bifrost’s mission is to provide standardized cross-chain interest-bearing derivatives for Polkadot relay chains, parachains, and heterogeneous chains bridged with Polkadot. Furthermore, by aggregating over 80% of PoS consensus chains’ staking liquidity through cross-chain derivatives, our protocol lowers users' staking threshold, increases multi-chain staking ratio, and improves the ecosystems application interest base, by creating a three-way positive cycle for the StakeFi ecosystem by empowering users, multi-chains, and ecosystem applications.
Bifrost has raised over USD 2M from top-tier venture capital firms by the likes of NGC, SNZ, DFG, CMS and other institutions. In addition to being an early receiver of a Web3 Foundation Grant, Bifrost is also a member of the Substrate Builders Program and the Web3 Bootcamp.
Who Are the Founders of Bifrost?
Lurpis Wang is the Co-founder of Bifrost. He has a degree from the Huazhong University of Science and Technology. Wang has worked at Weibo Corporation and Ping++. He has also founded Liebi Pool, a DeFi project on the IOST network.
In 2019, Wang assembled a team with Maarten Henskens, Bonnie Nie, Ross McDonald, Dawns Xu and launched Bifrost.
What Makes Bifrost (BNC) Unique?
Bifrost is designed to provide liquidity to 80% of PoS networks by allowing users to convert PoS cryptocurrencies to vTokens via transmission bridges. This can be done at any time, with an option to receive additional income and liquidity from the bets.
vTokens can be used to optimize transactions in various scenarios including DeFi, decentralized applications (DApps), and decentralized (DEXs) and centralized (CEXs) exchanges. According to Bifrost’s developers, vTokens allow users to hedge the risks of locked positions and double DeFi and staking rewards.
Bifrost maintains high transparency of all behaviors on its parachain, allows business parameters to be regulated via democratic governance, offers cross-chain support via Polkadot relay, provides vToken rewards regardless of which validator a user is staking with and is 100% backed for staking.
