Farming with ElkDEX:

Project Details:

Elk Finance is building a peer-to-peer network for cross-chain value transfers and blockchain interoperability. ElkNet, the powerful cross-chain engine at the heart of the network, allows for secure and efficient transfers of value and information, reducing friction and asset fragmentation between blockchains. Community projects and developers will be able to build dynamic multi-chain applications that leverage ElkNet with features such as proxy tokens and cross-chain messaging.

Elk Finance combines several innovative features:

  • Cross-chain utility token for value transfer ($ELK)

  • Safe and secure transfers compared to traditional bridges

  • Cross-chain value transfer via ElkNet in seconds between all the blockchains Elk supports

  • Bridging-as-a-Service (BaaS) to provide infrastructure for developers to leverage the ElkNet for custom bridging solutions

  • Cross-chain swaps between all connected blockchains

  • Impermanent Loss Protection (ILP) for our liquidity providers

  • Non-Fungible Tokens (Moose NFTs) with unique abilities and features

  • Plans for a cross-chain stablecoin for value transfer and loans ($CHFT), a decentralized ElkNet with the help of nodes, Farming-as-a-Service

  • and more…

What are the Use Cases?

At the core, our goal is to provide our users with a simple and cheap way to transfer value across chains. However, Elk’s mission goes far beyond just enabling users to swap assets across chains. With Elk, users will not have to think about which chain they are on. Some of the functions we will support include: calling smart contracts across chains, allowing smart contracts on different chains to interact, using liquidity on one chain to get a stablecoin loan on another chain, allowing cross- or multi-chain synthetic assets (proxy tokens), a Bridging-as-a-Service (BaaS) SDK for custom bridging solutions, and facilitating cross-chain arbitrage.

Is This Yet Another Bridge?

No. While bridges are a step in the right direction, we believe they just do not do nearly enough to enable cross-chain functionality. Below are some of the problems with bridges that Elk aims to solve:

  • Safety and security

  • High cost

  • Speed

  • Largely centralized

  • Hard to manage

  • One-off (you need to deploy a new bridge between every pair of chains)

  • Only support bridging assets that exist on both chains

  • Extra costly conversions if the two assets to swap do not exist on both chains

Our approach is much more efficient and inexpensive than a standard bridge. It is a “multi-bridge on steroids” that is safer, cheaper, faster, and more adaptable than the competition.

Project Milestones: Before judging and voting takes place, Elk Finance will:

  1. Launch ElkNet on the BitTorrent Chain Mainnet (BTTC) allowing all users from 20 chains to bridge to/from BTTC

  2. Launch the ElkDEX on BTTC enabling swapping, LP provision, ELK farming with Impermanent Loss Protection (as long as subgraphs are operational), and the single-staking of ELK

  3. Collaborate with new and existing BTTC projects on whitelisting, farms, and marketing if requested

Great presentation :+1::innocent:

We need project like this to attract huge users to BTTC (bittorrent chain) and i have noticed your website are so appealing looks professional, I wish all the very best

We certainly shall. If we’re welcomed to a chain then we shall do our best for that chain!

@LtSnakePlissken Glad we are seeing some serious devs looking into developing and working with the BTTC network as the chain still needs to show its capabilities especially with blockchain bridge options starting to be asked for quite a lot

Good luck in the hackathon season 3 and keep those updates coming :raised_hands:

When I bridge on other chains, ELK tends to be my preferred bridge because of speed and cost. Team is very committed to decentralization and security as well. Builders. Nice presentation in this thread!

wow, Elk on BTTC will be huge!
Elk teams are legends in the space, delivering safe product on the design space of cross-chain transfers would be a hot potato for most teams but not for these guys :muscle:

Best of luck in the Hackathon, I’m sure ELK x BTTC will open up doors to both ecosystems :handshake:
