January Monthly Report
Welcome to the first monthly report of the year! Last year we made the decision to share updates on a monthly basis rather than weekly, in order to have more news to share.
Equalizer got off to a good start, the Flash Loans volume reached $1 000 000. We are sharing again our secret recipe: United Team + Great Motivation + Agile Methodology! The power of communication and coordination will bring more amazing results!
Here is what the Equalizer team has been up to this month!
Update 1: Polygon Mainnet Deployment
Equalizer joined the DApp ecosystem of Polygon with over 450 Decentralized applications, including Aave and Sushiswap in DeFi, Valuables in NFT, and Decentraland in Metaverse, to name a few. With the integration, Equalizer can tap into the market of Polygon’s fast-growing network.
Update 2: Flash Loans Academy is Launched
Equalizer has launched the first Flash Loans Academy, the first lecture took place on the 24th of January. We are now one step closer to making flash loans available to everyone! The students have already shared their feedback and they are looking forward to continuing the training!
Although the Academy has started you can still register by joining the Academy channel on Discord https://discord.gg/aZx8H6zqer.
More details about the agenda and the format can be found here https://equalizer.finance/academy/flash-loans-academy-agenda
Update 3: Integration for New Wallet Solution
The team is working on the integration of a new wallet solution to make it easier for non-users of Metamask to provide liquidity or to participate in yield farming. Currently, we are in the final testing phase.
Update 4: Refactoring for APIs
We are focused on exploring new chains to integrate with, like Avalanche, Arbitrum, and others. Refactoring for APIs is aimed at supporting the expansion of new chains.
Update 5: Website Improvements
The Equalizer team continues to reorganize the website in order to make it more user-friendly. Small details are already visible, but we are continuing to work with our UX team for new sections/pages. Expect to see the team up very soon, and also a section dedicated to frequently asked questions.
We are still working on defining a marketing strategy for Equalizer, but educating with our content can never be wrong so this was one point of focus for us this month:
Update 1: Educational Articles for Flash Loans Academy
As already mentioned, January marked the launch of the Equalizer Flash Loans Academy. In addition to regular lectures, we are planning to create educational articles, and one of them has already been published on the website:
Update 2: Announcing results of the Flash Loans Contest
The biggest Defi contest, held by Equalizer, closed on January 11th. The team worked on analyzing the transactions and the winners are about to receive their prize.
Update 3: AMA with Equalizer Founders
Equalizer has always been a community-oriented project. Hence, our priorities are closely connected with the priorities of the community.
On the 14th of January, we held our first Telegram AMA session with the Equalizer core team. Before and during the session we got many interesting questions about the priorities of Equalizer in 2022. Check AMA recap on our Medium: https://equalizer-finance.medium.com/ama-results-93b0a00ab564
Update 4: Discord Server Improvements
To make communication in the Equalizer Discord space more friendly, we redesigned the visual display of our channel. Now you can enjoy not only conversations among like-minded people but also different aesthetics.
To check our improvements, join the Discord community https://discord.gg/aZx8H6zqer
Update 5: Social Media
In order to provide social media content that serves best our community we created a poll on Twitter and here are the results:
We will further act on these results and provide content related to flash loans and updates from the team.
We appreciate your participation in Equalizer progress and really love when you share your thoughts:
Equalizer is the first dedicated flash loan marketplace built on top of a scalable infrastructure that can handle the rising demand of decentralized lending and borrowing and that can boost the trading volume of any listed asset. It offers top benefits over the popular do-it-all DeFi protocols and sets itself a class apart by offering lower fees, a virtually unlimited choice of token vaults, high liquidity through yield farming, and multi-chain capabilities.
