1.BitMEX Launching Futures for Chainlink (LINK), EOS (EOS), Tezos (XTZ), and Cardano (ADA)

Seychelles-based cryptocurrency derivatives trading platform BitMEX has announced that it will be launching  four new Altcoin/USDT underlying quanto futures contracts for Chainlink (LINK), Tezos (XTZ), EOS (EOS), and Cardano (ADA). They are paired with the Tether (USDT) stablecoin. The announcement is published via BitMEX  official blog post  on Sept 04, 2020.


In response to demand from  users, these new Altcoin/USDT contracts better reflect the underlying positions many traders are taking on spot markets. USDT pairs account for over 60% of overall Altcoin volume, and with these listings they  are providing users with the trading options to better meet their needs.


LINK will be the first DeFi-linked contract available on the BitMEX platform, and together with XTZ, they represent two of the highest market-cap and heavily traded Altcoins, and are a further step in and aim to provide Its users the best coverage of liquid, high quality products. It plan to introduce several more Altcoin product listings over the coming months.

BitMEX introducing USDT underlying contracts for Its popular ADA and EOS series, broadening Its quanto offerings on existing supported Altcoins after the successful launch of  ETH/USD quanto future earlier in the year.


As with all quanto products, they have a fixed Bitcoin multiplier regardless of the underlying Altcoin price. This allows traders to long or short each coin without needing to hold the specific coin or USDT. Traders post margin in XBT, and earn or lose XBT as the future’s price changes.


These contracts combine the quanto feature of its perpetual swap products with the expiry and settlement found in traditional futures. As with every BitMEX Altcoin future, they expire quarterly.

2.Animoca Brands to launch REVV utility tokens for motorsports games

Animoca Brands Corporation Limited (“Animoca Brands” or the “Company”) is pleased to advise that it will launch its REVV token on Uniswap, the automated liquidity protocol for exchanging ERC-20 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain. REVV is the main utility token and in-game currency of the branded motorsports games produced by Animoca Brands, including F1® Delta Time, an upcoming title based on MotoGP™ intellectual property, and a third title to be announced soon (collectively, the “Motorsport Games”). The announcement is published via official press release  on Sept 02, 2020.


REVV is available for trade on Uniswap starting on 4 September 2020, at 8 pm (UTC +8). At that time, the public will have the opportunity to purchase and sell REVV by using the Uniswap app, which can be launched from the Uniswap website at or from the REVV website at REVV tokens will be paired with ether (ETH) on the Uniswap platform.


2.Animoca Brands to launch REVV utility tokens for motorsports games


REVV: the token for motorsports games
REVV is the ERC-20 utility token that serves as the primary currency in certain blockchain games developed and published by Animoca Brands.  These games include F1® Delta Time (aspects of which are currently available in beta stage), an upcoming blockchain game based on MotoGP (initial features releasing in Q4 2020), and a third blockchain game based on a global racing franchise that will be announced soon.

REVV is designed to leverage the blockchain assets concept of interoperability, wherein a token can be utilised across multiple products. The Motorsport Games will be connected by a shared economy made possible by the REVV token, which is designed to be the currency of purchase, utility, and action for multiple game titles.

Having REVV as the utility token serving multiple games will offer various benefits to players, and will encourage exploration of the other games that are part of this connected ecosystem. Additionally, in-game content and REVV tokens have the potential to increase in value as the REVV token ecosystem expands through the growth of its connected games.

Whereas REVV is a fungible token (a type of cryptographic token that is non-unique and mutually interchangeable with others of its kind), the game content within the Motorsport Games is primarily provided in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), which are a special type of cryptographic token representing pieces of digital content that are unique. For example, in F1® Delta Time most critical game content is comprised of NFTs, including Cars, Drivers, and even Tracks.

REVV: powering true digital ownership and in-game dividends
The NFTs in Animoca Brands’ Motosport Games will be ownable by players. In traditional games, a publisher grants players certain limited licenses to utilise the game and the assets therein, which the players do not truly own regardless of the time and money they invested. However, by utilizing blockchain and NFTs, Animoca Brands will offer true digital ownership of game assets to the players of the Motorsport Games, who will enjoy full ownership and control over their in-game assets and in-game currency.

REVV will also power other innovative features not previously seen in games based on motorsports intellectual properties. For example, Animoca Brands’ Motorsport Games will allow players to earn REVV through gameplay (play-to-earn), earn a dividend of REVV for NFTs that they own (NFT staking, as well as ownership of race tracks), and stake their REVV for the opportunity to receive NFTs (REVV staking).

The REVV Smart Contract was fully audited by CertiK Foundation, a technology-led blockchain security company founded by computer science professors from Yale University and Columbia University established to prove the security and correctness of smart contracts and blockchain protocols. CertiK Foundation rated the REVV and ERC Base Dependency Contracts a “very high confidence” security level. The final Certik report is available here.

3.Synthetix Becomes The Latest DeFi Project To Fully Integrate Chainlink’s Decentralized Oracles

Synthetix, “the DeFi protocol for trading asset-pegged synthetic tokens on Ethereum” is solidifying its relationship with leading decentralized oracle provider Chainlink. Synthetix has  announced that after an eight-month successful implementation of Chainlink’s decentralised price oracles for Its commodity and FX Synths, It has now switched the rest of Its price oracles over to Chainlink as per SIP-36. This includes price feeds for all cryptocurrency and index Synths. The announcement is published via Synthetix blog post on Sept 01, 2020.


This marks a major milestone in the development of the Synthetix protocol, removing any centralised dependency on Its core contributors in regards to running the oracle mechanism, another crucial step in transitioning to decentralised governance.


Oracles are a critical component to its success, as every trade on Synthetix is dependent on the price feeds delivered by oracles. Since integrating Chainlink’s Price Reference Data, its commodity and FX synths have successfully maintained accurate, tamperproof valuations in accordance with the real world market price of their underlying assets, even during times of high volatility.


3.Synthetix Becomes The Latest DeFi Project To Fully Integrate Chainlink's Decentralized Oracles


Over time, as the value locked in Synthetix has risen, It has been able to successfully scale the security and reliability guarantees provided by Chainlink’s oracles, lowering the deviation threshold for on-chain updates to obtain even more precise prices. This has given traders on Synthetix.Exchange stronger assurances that they are always receiving the most up-to-date market price.


Since the initial integration, Chainlink has become the standard oracle mechanism powering most of DeFi, currently securing over $3B in USD value. Chainlink will continue to be the most secure and reliable oracle mechanism in the market, providing the Synthetix protocol with strong guarantees that all assets are backed by high-quality price data with high availability, resistance to manipulation, and transparency.


Moving forward with Chainlink allows  oracle mechanism to scale up alongside the value locked up in the total debt pool, particularly across three key metrics: security, asset selection, and costs.


  • Security: Chainlink can easily onboard more oracle nodes and data providers as the need for greater security arises, protecting stakers and scaling up the amount of Synths that can be minted.
  • Asset selection: Chainlink’s proven price reference framework can be used to quickly and reliably launch additional price feeds, allowing them to support nearly any new synthetic asset the Synthetix community wants to trade.
  • Costs: Synthetix can benefit from the shared economic model of Chainlink Price Reference Data contracts, wherein multiple projects collectively finance common price feeds. This provides a more sustainable solution aligned with the growing DeFi space, as each new data consumer lowers the costs for all existing users.


Synthetix  look forward to working with the Chainlink community to maintain Its existing price feeds, onboard new asset classes, and build out more secure and reliable price feeds to make Synthetix the leading liquidity derivatives protocol in DeFi.
