  • Partnerships:

Very excited about the partnership with Flowcarbon where DeFi is used to scale the carbon credit market. This is a real world use case!

Another big step into the direction of mass adoption: Bitcoin Suisse integrates Centrifuge into its vault and is helping to bridge DeFi/RWAs for their clients!

Community

  • Active pools (active pools present a summary of their pool)
  • Pool Onboarding Proposals (is the category where new pools submit their POP template and allow the community to give feedback on the proposal)
  • Discussions (for updates from existing pools and introductions of new pools) and Pool Party Announcements

While you’re at it please take a look into the Intro to RFA Bank of Canada!

Twitter news:

Glad to see a lot of support from the community every month on Twitter! :pray:t2:

Governance

  • This month’s governance call covered an update of the POP-process by Colin, news on the crowdloan claiming plus the chain migration and a demo of the governance manual.

  • Ongoing governance proposals:

(1) The poll for the POP-process has closed and will move to the on-chain referendum next

Please actively participate in the governance process, comment on the Request for comments (RFCs) in the forum, cast your vote on polls and especially use your CFG for on-chain referendums!
