🚀 As usual, May has been a busy month for UniLend team. While volatility is normal in cryptocurrency, teams that thrive throughout it are exceptional; this month we’ve proven beyond doubt that UniLend is one of those teams.
⚡️ In May, we announced that our lending and flash loans protocol will soon launch on Polygon, initiated a $1 million ecosystem grant program, and introduced UniLend’s new mascot — the DeFi space monk. Additionally, we empowered several new tokens with access to our comprehensive suite of DeFi products, partnered with multiple IDO and pre-IDO lending partners like Genesis Shards, Poolz Finance, Red Kite, and Polka Bridge. We expanded our educational outreach efforts by increasing our presence with additional AMAs, interviews, and another one of our famous meme competitions. We airdropped tokens, rewarded our most esteemed community members, got listed on QuickSwap, and much more. In effect, we had a massively productive month, and that’s why we created this newsletter to make sure you didn’t miss a thing!
🤝 We thank those of your who have been with us for every exciting step of the way and welcome those who have joined us only recently. We hope that you’ll all continue to grow, develop, and add new functionality with us. In the exciting world of cryptocurrency, each day brings new developments. It’s great to be early!
