What is Parallel Finance (PARA)?
Parallel Finance is a DeFi ecosystem launched on the Polkadot and Kusama networks. The platform features a suite of interoperable decentralized applications (dApps) and derivative tokens that allow users to borrow, lend, swap and earn yield on cross-chain assets. PARA is the native token of the project used to pay transaction fees on the platform, incentivize validators to help secure the network, earn rewards via staking and vote on decisions that affect the future direction of the protocol.
Will Kraken make more assets available?
Yes! But our policy is to never reveal any details until shortly before launch – including which assets we are considering. All of Kraken’s available tokens can be found here, and all future tokens will be announced on Kraken’s blog and social media profiles. Our client engagement specialists cannot answer any questions about which assets we may be making available in the future.
