Before becoming a Token Captain, be sure to explore ShuttleFlow; and read through Using ShuttleFlow to convert between ETH and cETH 2

What is a Token Captain?

To support more cross-chain assets between Ethereum and Conflux, ShuttleFlow has launched the Token Captain initiative. Everyone can support any cross-chain tokens on Ethereum and Conflux by becoming a Token Captain, to reap the rewards of supporting their favorite token. However, there is only one Token Captain for each token, though new Token Captains can emerge to rule their favorite tokens.

How does it work?

A Token Captain needs to collateralize a portion of cETH, used to deduct the actual cost of their cross chain transaction. …

Conflux Network and Waves Enterprise Enter Partnership

We are happy to announce that Waves Enterprise and Conflux Network have entered into a strategic partnership to help Waves Enterprise develop its ecosystem and concept of hybrid blockchain technologies in China and the Asia-Pacific region.

The parties intend to promote a hybrid approach to data transactions in private blockchain networks based on Waves Enterprise technologies. Anchoring is a hybrid data storage concept which involves the reference storage of data hashes from private networks in a public network without passing the actual data, enhancing data integrity and immutability. According to Gartner such hybrid interaction models ensure optimized convergence of private and public blockchains, where private transactions are validated by public chain consensus. …

Written by Conflux Network’s DeFi Analyst Sami Tannir

After a hectic summer for DeFi, we have seen the ecosystem expand from simple money legos working together to full-blown cross-chain yield aggregating money markets, originating from the craze of yield farming in June. Yield-farming, when done right, brings optimized utilization of liquidity locked into different protocols. This is done to achieve the highest return possible, while also getting users to acquire a token without going through the traditional route of exchange listings, or even purchasing the token.

As the craze for 5-figure APY rates cools down, the market has returned to a sense of assuredness. Looking at the daily transaction volume compared to the daily liquidity in Uniswap, we can analyze the liquidity utilization rate of the assets deposited in the exchange by liquidity providers. Figure 1 shows the progression of liquidity deposited that users are truly earning interest (transaction fees) on when assets are locked into an AMM exchange such as Uniswap. …
