They say that the 3rd time’s the charm, and on that note, the InvArch Network core team is excited to announce that the InvArch crowdloan on Polkadot is back — again! Just like before, the crowdloan isn’t just back, it’s more rewarding than ever. Individuals who support the InvArch Network Crowdloan can now anticipate receiving 200 VARCH for every DOT they contribute!

Project Overview

InvArch is a highly optimized network for launching decentralized communities, borderless businesses, & unstoppable organizations. It achieves this by providing multichain asset custody & governance solutions for the Polkadot ecosystem & beyond!

The InvArch Network is far from your average blockchain. While most blockchains are designed to enhance the developer experience for those building on them, the InvArch Network enhances the user & developer experience across multiple blockchains using the power of Polkadot’s XCM standard.

The InvArch Network will join the Polkadot ecosystem as both a Service Parachain & an application-specific network. As a Service Parachain, InvArch will empower parachains across Polkadot with its dynamic Saturn Multichain Multisig solution & unlock the power of bridgeless multichain asset management & modular DAO treasury systems. As an application-specific network, InvArch will feature powerful & intuitive solutions for easily launching DAOs & connecting with an integrations hub full of DAO tooling & services deployed on other blockchains.

Recent Updates

The InvArch Network’s Saturn Multisig solution, which has recently taken the Polkadot ecosystem by storm, is set to give Polkadot a unique competitive advantage over other ecosystems by providing a multichain multisig solution that realizes the ability for a single multisig account to operate across all blockchains in a trustless & non-custodial manner.

The InvArch Network also allows ecosystem builders to tap into the power of Saturn through the Saturn SDK, a software development kit that helps developers easily integrate support for Saturn directly into their apps. Teams that have signaled an interest in integrating support for Saturn include, but are not limited to, Talisman, SubWallet, Nova Wallet, PolkaSafe, & StellaSwap.

The InvArch canary network on Kusama, the InvArch Tinkernet, has delivered strongly over the past year. The TNKR token distribution took place within one month of the network’s launch & TNKR achieved price discovery on Basilisk Finance where it was then listed on the DEX. The Tinkernet LBP helped welcome in one of the most rewarding crowdloans on Kusama, neck & neck with only Moonriver. Following up on this, the OCIF protocol went live & DAO Staking was introduced to the ecosystem. Today, YoudleDAO, WagMedia, & ChaosDAO all receive community-driven funding through the InvArch Tinkernet & DAO Staking.

Recently, the InvArch Network core team submitted a proposal to the Polkadot Treasury for funding Saturn Gateway — a web application for managing assets across the ecosystem using a single multichain multisig powered by Saturn. Approximately a week ago from the time this article was published, the proposal was passed by the Polkadot OpenGov community, providing the InvArch team with over 75,000 DOT in funding!

InvArch Crowdloan Details

  • In the coming days, individuals will also be able to contribute their DOT to earn VARCH and vsDOT through Bifrost Finance!

See you on the relay!
