UniLend Project Updates #1
To track UniLend’s progress on our mission to “Unlock the Full Potential of Decentralized Finance”, we invite you to read our Project Updates covering all areas of our progress over the past month.
During this time the UniLend team hit every target we hoped to achieve and we believe the future will hold much more of the same. We now would like to share an overall comprehensive list of everything we have accomplished within October 2020.
We have gone to market guns ablaze; it seems that everyone knows our name now. Our UniLend Legion ambassador program launched with a barrage of interest, our public sale was an overwhelming success, and we’ve already secured several strong listings with several notable CEXs & DEXs.
This is just a taste of the beginning, there is so much more to come!
