The Dawn of a New Aggregation Era

Thanks to Polygon’s CDK and Gelato’s RaaS, Astar zkEVM will be the first Layer-2 protocol offering native interoperability with Polygon zkEVM and future chains on the AggLayer. This integration promises:

  • Seamless cross-chain transactions
  • A unified user base
  • Consolidated liquidity pools

This landmark collaboration between Polygon, Astar, and Gelato marks the beginning of an aggregation era that merges the best aspects of both monolithic and modular blockchain frameworks.

Our enthusiasm for Astar is fueled by several key factors:

  • Its status as the first zkEVM integrated with Polygon’s Agglayer.
  • Investments from tech and financial giants like Sony, Samsung, and UOB.
  • Strategic partnerships with major players including the Japanese Government, Deloitte, NTT Data, Toyota, Mazda, and Mitsubishi.

Astar Network is carving out a niche for itself as a vital hub for diverse projects spanning the business, entertainment, and gaming industries, in Japan, Korea, and beyond. Delve deeper into Astar’s journey and future in their latest blog post.

Risk Mitigation Parameters

Keom’s Markets also emphasize risk mitigation through various strategies.

These strategies further include setting supply and borrowing caps to manage exposure limits effectively, utilizing on-chain forensics to monitor and analyze transactions for additional security, and implementing stringent checks and balances to maintain the integrity of the trading environment. These measures collectively work towards ensuring a stable and secure trading platform for all users.

Keom markets on Astar zkEVM will evolve beginning with the following parameters

  • We have established initial LTVs and supply and borrow caps to ensure a balanced and sustainable lending environment from the outset.
  • Max Liquidation Incentive: Set at 10%.
  • Dynamic Liquidation Incentive: Once a user’s Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratio exceeds 90.9%, the liquidation incentive begins to decrease. This measure is designed to deter liquidations that could potentially lead to insolvency, ensuring a safer investment environment for all users.
