Polkamarkets #9 Monthly Recap — October 2021
Polkamarkets Labs released its prediction market protocol in a live environment at the end of September 2021. The last month of October was focused on gathering feedback from the community and launching protocol rewards to ensure its usage and adoption. User numbers, trading volume, and TVL have all increased steadily over the first month of being live.
This is the summary of what we accomplished in the month of October 2021:
