4 min readJan 20, 2022

Polkadex has partnered with Bifrost to make contributing to the Polkadex Crowdloan even more enticing. The partnership provides Polkadex Crowdloan contributors with a new method to participate in the Crowdloan and gives them the ability to keep their DOT liquid throughout the duration of the lock (Crowdloan + parachain lease), all while earning even more rewards.

Bifrost Rewards for Polkadex Crowdloan contributors

Every Polkadexer who contributes to the Polkadex Crowdloan through Bifrost will receive the following rewards:

  • Base reward starting from 0.1875 PDEX per DOT. That’s just the base reward. The final PDEX base reward amount will most likely be higher since PDEX rewards are paid as a % of your contribution to the total DOT contributed.
  • 15 % Early Bird Bonus rewards for early-bird entries by 11:59pm CET on January 22nd
  • 5% Bonus rewards for all contributions from 11:59pm CET on January 22nd to 11:59pm CET on January 27th
  • An exclusive NFT for each of the top 1,000 contributors

Plus the following rewards from Bifrost:

  1. 0.04 BNC per DOT
  2. 1 vsDOT per every DOT
  3. 0.02 BNC per DOT referral bonus

Contribute to the Polkadex Crowdloan via Bifrost now!


If you have 1 PDEX in your Polkadot.js account, you can contribute as much or as little DOT as you want without worrying about the existential deposit.

If you do not currently have any PDEX in your Polkadot.js account and wish to contribute less than 22 DOT, please buy at least 1 PDEX so your account will meet the existential deposit requirement of 1 PDEX. That way, your account will be considered as ‘active’ and you’ll be able to receive your PDEX rewards.

What is vsDOT?

Bifrost will allow Polkadex Crowdloan contributors to mint fully decentralized liquid derivative tokens (1 vsDOT : 1 DOT) based on the Kusama Parachain through the Slot Auction Liquidity Protocol (SALP). In other words, the vsDOT derivative token represents a Crowdloan contributor’s locked DOT position. After the parachain goes live, contributors will be able to claim vsDOT and start using it in different DeFi applications, including derivative farming, liquidity mining, swaps, and more. This also allows Polkadex Crowdloan contributors to keep their initial DOT contribution liquid at all times. Once the parachain lease comes to an end — 96 weeks after the parachain goes live — vsDOT holders can redeem vsDOT for DOT at a 1:1 ratio through Bifrost.

The bottom line for Polkadex Crowdloan contributors is that vsDOT makes it so that you do not need to worry about locking your DOT for an extended period of time. With vsDOT, you can continue to take advantage of numerous DeFi protocols using a liquid asset, all while earning PDEX and more!
