Cronos zkEVM Launches Pioneer Program, Rewarding Early Supporters

Hong Kong, HK, July 5th, 2024, Chainwire

 Zero-Knowledge EVM blockchain Cronos zkEVM has announced the launch of its Pioneer Program. The initiative allows early users to earn points for their activity on Cronos zkEVM and for interacting with specific dapps.

The Pioneer Program has been designed to incentivize the Cronos community and reward early supporters for their active participation in both the testnet and mainnet. Its rollout precedes the mainnet launch of Cronos zkEVM which is scheduled for Q3.

The program will unfold in stages over the coming weeks and include a variety of community and social quests. These provide an opportunity for users to earn loyalty points while familiarizing themselves with features and services available on Cronos zkEVM. 

Later, users will be able to claim their points when they use ecosystem dapps, since participating dapps are expected to offer extra token yields and other benefits to point holders. These additional yields will be provided not only in CRO token but also native dapp tokens.

As a result, users will be able to earn three layers of yield on their crypto assets such as CRO: firstly, the staking yield that is provided natively by holding liquid staked assets like zkCRO; secondly, the DeFi yield generated by various DeFi protocols of the ecosystem; thirdly, the extra yield that participating dapps will offer to loyalty point holders. 

Ken Timsit, from Cronos Labs, said: “The community have been waiting patiently for Cronos zkEVM mainnet to launch and the finishing line is now in sight. The Pioneer Program recognizes their invaluable efforts in helping to refine the testnet and providing feedback during the next few weeks before and after mainnet launch..”

To kick off the Pioneer program, the Cronos project is kicking off the Cronos zkEVM Passage campaign in partnership with Veno Finance. During this campaign starting on July 4, which will last until mainnet launch, users can accumulate points by locking and staking CRO into bridge contracts powered by Veno on Ethereum mainnet or Cronos EVM blockchain. The crypto assets, earned staking yield, and accumulated Pioneer points will be released upon mainnet launch.
