April 2, 2020, Singapore — Raze Network, the first Polkadot-based cross-chain privacy protocol announced its initial DEX offering on Bounce, Poolz and DuckStarter (April 12–13). This will be followed by a public distribution sale on Balancer Liquidity Bootstrapping Pool to fulfill the demand for Raze tokens in a fair, linear and decentralized manner.

Trustless decentralized privacy protocol Raze Network successfully raised $2.2 million in its seed and private funding rounds. The seed and private funding rounds had participation from prominent blockchain and crypto VC firms including OKEx Block Dream Fund, AU21 Capital, Master Ventures, CMS Holdings, X21, PNYX Ventures, Moonwhale Ventures, Tenzor Capital, Signum Capital, Spark Ventures and others. Raze Network’s latest fundraising attracted immense participation, leading to 88x oversubscription well ahead of its launch on DEX platforms and Balancer. As one of the forerunners in the Polkadot ecosystem, Raze Network is all set to build a native privacy protection layer to provide increased anonymity in the decentralized landscape. With privacy being an important factor in the current landscape, Raze Network strives toward bringing the power of free internet to reality.

“Raze Network is a Substrate-based cross-chain privacy protocol for the Polkadot ecosystem. It is building a cross-chain privacy middleware for the entire DeFi and Web 3.0. I believe that Raze Network can be the seamless and frictionless privacy infrastructure to keep the DApps private.”

— Justin Kellison, project lead and CEO

With a solid and comprehensive roadmap, Raze Network is set to integrate customized functionalities. Backed by technological entrepreneurs and industry veterans, the team is working on a solid technological stack to revolutionize the DeFi space through increased privacy features. The Raze token will be central to the incentivization for platform users. Platform users can actively participate in staking mechanisms, governance and voting proposals to drive the overall utility.

About Raze Network

Raze Network is a Substrate-based cross-chain privacy protocol for the Polkadot ecosystem. It is built as a native privacy layer that can provide end-to-end anonymity for the entire DeFi stack. The Raze Network applies zk-SNARKs to the Zether framework to build a second-layer decentralized anonymous module.

It will then be imported as a Substrate-based smart contract. The objective of Raze Network is to enable cross-chain privacy-preserving payment and trading systems while protecting the transparency of your assets and behaviors from surveillance.
