We have been in talks with the Polygon team about bringing our oracle solution to their network for some time now. Yesterday, we were awarded a grant to build APIs for data requests. The team at Polygon has been phenomenal and is already queuing DeFi teams to begin introducing us to their network.
As noted this ticks two of the boxes from our multi-tiered GTM approach. A few key points that we have begun and have traction with are as follows:
The executive team has been in the midst of hiring a CMO, and we believe we have potentially found a keystone hire. In the meantime, we are fleshing out our holistic marketing strategy.
Our team has expanded to 23 in the last two months and we are continuing to hire with a tentative target based on budgeting and necessary roles. We have been on a hiring spree consolidating Rust developers, cryptographers (DKG and MPC PhDs, economists, and consensus algorithm researchers).
Dr. Aniket Kate officially collaborating with us now. He’s a well-known cryptographic distributed system researcher and academic. He’s written some seminal works especially on DKG (Distributed Key Generation) and consensus.
Contracts have been signed; we have been in discussions with him for months and last month started our technical collaboration in earnest.
Over time we may engage him further as a chief scientist, but one step at a time.
Entirely new DeFi primitives are going to be enabled, we already have some researchers working on white papers describing new concepts that will be launched upon Supra when we’re live, for an early look, see the following attached image:
MME has told us our commercial register is now pending, we are within the final stretch for the Swiss non-profit to be 100%.
