Qredo Monthly Update: October 2022

Welcome to our monthly recap of Qredo Network activity and events!

THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS 🧑‍🚀: NETWORK FEES AND POWERSWAP


We’ve been busy putting the final touches to a couple of key initiatives. Here’s a sneak peek: 

First up is the rollout of fees on Qredo Network, an important step to building a thriving, commercially successful network.

This rollout is being implemented gradually and is currently in beta testing with a number of selected users.    

In implementing fees, we are delivering on another of the tokenomics changes announced earlier this year. Paying fees in QRDO will unlock an automatic 15% fee discount for Qredo users, boosting demand for the token and adding new utility to it. In addition, most of the QRDO used to pay fees will be burned!

Supporting QRDO fee utility and demand will be the launch of PowerSwap

PowerSwap allows Qredo Wallet holders to swap their Tether (USDT) and USD Coin (USDC) for QRDO in a fast, cheap, and frictionless way – all without leaving the protection and self-custody security of Qredo’s dMPC. 

That’s because, with PowerSwap, QRDO-stablecoin swaps are carried out on Qredo’s Layer 2 blockchain – with none of the delays, counterparty or slippage risk experienced if the trade was routed to an external exchange or trading venue.

NETWORK 🌐


Qredo welcomes Polkadot 👋

We were thrilled to announce Qredo’s latest blockchain integration: Polkadot, the Layer 0 protocol.

Qredo is integrating with Polkadot’s coordinating chain — the Relay Chain — and supporting native asset DOT. Now, Qredo users are now able to trade, transfer, and custody DOT on Qredo Network whilst enjoying all its institutional-grade governance and security. Read more


Token burn 🔥

Qredo’s token burn program continues!

On October 3rd, we burned 24 million QRDO, representing approximately the number of tokens that vested in the previous month.

We just burned another 17M QRDO yesterday! -- surpassing the 100M burn milestone 🎉 That’s 114.6M Qredo tokens that have been burned to date -- decreasing total supply by 11.46%.

QRDO Staking bonus 🎁

Whilst you can continue to earn a weekly staking reward of 10.1% APY, there’s still nearly 2 months to enjoy a staking bonus if you hold QRDO in your Qredo Wallet for longer.

PRODUCT 👩‍💻


The growing importance of insurance in Web3  

The rise of Web3 has prompted a surge in demand for insurance coverage. Qredo is meeting that opportunity, as demonstrated by our recent announcement of $600M of specie coverage for assets on the Qredo Network.

🤓 Learn how crypto insurance works

In October, we hosted a panel discussing this all-important evolution of the digital asset space. With special guests Hugh Karp, Founder of Nexus Mutual, Rupert Poland from Marsh & McLennan, and Qredo’s Ben Whitby. It’s a must-watch discussion for anyone interested in the real factors supporting enterprise involvement in crypto.

Qredo x WalletConnect 🚀🚀🚀

We’re grateful for all the brilliant user feedback we’ve so far received from the Early Adopter Program for our Wallet Connect integration.

Collecting feedback and recycling it into better products is part of our DNA.

To make sure we properly capture and maximize the value of this feedback from new users, we are now rolling out Qredo x Wallet Connect in batches, starting from the top of the waitlist.

Those already on the waitlist will be notified when they are next in line! Meanwhile, the waitlist remains open, so you can still join if you haven’t already, or earn QRDO by referring friends who also sign up. 🎉
