Acala Joining Product Validation Day with IDEO CoLab Ventures

By Acala Network

We are excited to be selected into the IDEO Product Validation Day on June 18–19 2020, out of over 120 applications. IDEO will lead early-stage teams through a design research sprint, where we’ll talk to real end-users and collaborate with peers, experts, and mentors in the decentralized finance (DeFi) community.

IDEO CoLab Ventures has run similar program previously with some of the top crypto and DeFi teams in the world, including Compound, 0x, dYdX, Dharma, PoolTogether, UMA, Lightning Labs, River Financial, Celo, Celer, Optimism, MyCrypto, DappHero, DeFiZap, and many more.

The Acala Network features two protocols, a decentralized cross-chain stablecoin protocol , and a liquid staking protocol . Acala has delivered a unique user experience both on the web and mobile to make DeFi simple and delightful. Our on-chain governance design paves the way for progressive decentralization and digital sovereignty. Combined, they will serve as building blocks for Acala to become a cross-chain DeFi DApp platform on Polkadot — a sharded blockchain protocol to power more applications and collectively provide financial stability, liquidity and accessibility to the masses.

Help Us

As part of this event, we need a few people to help us test-drive and provide feedback on some cool new products we’ve been working on. We’re looking for people who are crypto asset holders, DeFi users, and/or crypto curious.
