Zeitgeist Newsletter: 009
Here's everything you need to know about what's been happening in our ecosystem over the last few weeks...

Hello Zeitgeist Supporter!

As we approach the conclusion of yet another year, we continue to build faster and harder than ever!

We have a whole bunch of new features and partnerships to talk about in this edition of the newsletter, but of course, let's kick off with our Top Ten prediction markets...

1. The Zeitgeist Top Ten

The second chart to feature DOT-based markets, and even though there have been far fewer DOT markets since we launched them, they're still holding their own in the Top Ten. 

The top market is a permissionless market (ie. created by an unknown user - not by someone on our team), and is doing sensational volume. We're still unsure how Peter feels about that market, and should probably reach out to him and find out. ๐Ÿซฃ But the good news is, the forecast is that he'll be staying in his position as CMO come 1 January. ๐Ÿ˜„

It's also interesting to see that for the first time, there is only one sporting market on the chart! Are the sports enthusiasts tired? 

Here is the full Top Ten:


 2. Zeitgeist And Moonbeam ๐ŸŒ–

After many months of working, we're delighted to announce our integration with Moonbeam which opens up flows of liquidity between our two networks, allowing new utility and collabs with Moonbeam's extensive ecosystem. Moonbeam is a vital hub for numerous Polkadot parachains because of the access it opens up to EVM-based chains, and this is a significant move for us!

Here are the full details

3. Zeitgeist On StellaSwap ๐ŸŒœ

Not long after the XCM integration opened up on Moonbeam, we were ready to make a move on StellaSwap! You can now swap ZTG on their outstanding DEX, as well as stake ZTG and DOT on their Pulsar Farm.

 4. Zeitgeist APP Updates

We've been hard at work with dozens of updates to the protocol, with our latest version of the app now at v0.4.2. Along with this latest iteration, we also have a number of UI updates.  

Here is everything we've been working on over the last few weeks:

  • Search bar for any words relating to a market
  • New users can now sign up via the simple "Web3Auth"
  • New binary markets will feature AMM 2.0
  • Paramutuel markets are available
  • Markets can be closed early
  • Market creators can earn fees

Check out release v0.4.2 on Github here

5. Updated Community Ambassador Program

Our community ambassador program has undergone an overhaul, and we're making it even more exciting to represent the Zeitgeist community! Find out all the details in the below blog post...

 6. USDC Is Coming To Zeitgeist

In massive news, we will soon be offering the USDC stablecoin on the Zeitgeist platform. Thanks to the integration with Moonbeam, we're able to bring USDC to our protocol via the Moonbeam wormhole contract, meaning that markets can soon be offered with the stablecoin as the base asset.

See the announcement on X


 7. Vote on the direction of Zeitgeist

We're running a campaign for the month of December whereby users can participate in incentivized polls on Zealy, and vote for various feedback questions we're asking. Users who participate will earn XP, which can be used on various Zealy stores and on a future Zeitgeist project!
