In line with the announcement, the Rainmaker program will distribute $30 million in rewards to liquidity suppliers on the Kyber DMM throughout each Polygon and Ethereum.

Of the overall reward pool, 12.6 million Kyber Community Crystal (KNC) — about $25 million — shall be distributed to liquidity suppliers (LPs) on chosen Ethereum-based amplified swimming pools. The remaining 2.52 million KNC — about $5 million — shall be for LPs on Polygon-based amplified swimming pools.

These rewards be will within the type of KNC and of Polygon’s MATIC tokens, which can be staked to supply liquidity on KNC and MATIC swimming pools to compound reward earnings. Rainmaker reward earners who obtain KNC can even stake some on the KyberDAO to take part in governance actions thereby incomes extra voting rewards.

In line with the announcement, the Polygon part of the Rainmaker liquidity mining program will run for 2 months, whereas that for Ethereum will happen over three months — beginning June 30 for each.

For Kyber, Rainmaker will assist to additional develop Polygon’s rising liquidity. Certainly, DeFi tasks proceed to determine a presence on Polygon amid a broader push for multichain methods and larger general scalability.

Detailing the significance of the Kyber DMM and Polygon partnership, Kyber Community CEO Loi Luu informed Cointelegraph: “Kyber’s imaginative and prescient is to ship a sustainable liquidity infrastructure for DeFi, and this additionally extends to fast-growing ecosystems corresponding to Polygon,” including:

“This Polygon partnership and the $30M Rainmaker liquidity mining program will assist showcase the highly effective advantages of the Kyber DMM protocol and is a vital step in direction of enormously boosting liquidity for DeFi, in addition to rising the variety of customers, builders, and Dapps within the Kyber and Polygon ecosystems.”

Polygon utilization continues to skyrocket triggering vital integration efforts by DeFi primitives. Again in Might, 0x — a liquidity bridge for decentralized exchanges (DEXs) — announced an API tool for Ethereum-based DEXs like SushiSwap, mStable and Dfyn to work together with the Polygon ecosystem.

Ren — a cross-chain liquidity protocol — has additionally created a bridge to permit porting of Ren-based wrapped tokens to the Polygon community.
