About Acala Network
Acala Network is the all-in-one DeFi hub of Polkadot. Acala is an Ethereum-compatible platform for financial applications to use smart contracts or built-in protocols with out-of-the-box cross-chain capabilities and robust security. The platform also offers a suite of financial applications including: a trustless staking derivative (liquid DOT), a multi-collateralized stablecoin backed by cross-chain assets (aUSD), and an AMM DEX – all with micro gas fees that can be paid in any token.
Acala is an all-in-one decentralized finance network offering a blockchain platform secured by Polkadot, as well as a suite of cross-chain financial applications that let users trade on Acala Swap, issue self-serviced loans with the Acala Dollar stablecoin (aUSD), become liquidity providers, access staking derivatives with Liquid DOT staking (LDOT), and earn high-interest APY on their digital assets. The network is scalable, Ethereum-compatible, and optimized for DeFi.
The network will also be bridged to Ethereum, Bitcoin, and other networks such as Compound Gateway, for which Acala received an inaugural grant from Compound. Acala is building hybrid crypto and fintech products with US fintech company, Current, to bring DeFi yield to Current’s three million U.S customers. You can try Acala’s Apps on testnet today.
