About Liquality, backed by ConsenSys :
Liquality is a cross blockchain exchange network. We want to build a more open and equitable future, where anyone can transact freely from middlemen and discrimination.
Decentralized Finance (DeFi) is seeing explosive growth with over $1.4Bn in locked value. However, it is constrained to the Ethereum blockchain, leaving out 90% of the cryptocurrency market. Liquality's cross-chain protocol and exchange bring Bitcoin into DeFi and enable DeFi’s capabilities to non-Ethereum chains in the most secure and usable way.
- Traction: $1M+ in total swap volume on the cross-chain exchange, ~42% WoW growth over the past three months.
We believe that your freedom to transact is a human right, and so everything we build should be Completely Accessible; Absolutely Equal; Built through Community; use Disintermediation as Enabler; Radically Transparent; Independent and Neutral; Reflexive and User-driven.
