POLS is the token powering Polkastarter, a platform for cross-blockchain fundraising based on Polkadot. POLS can be used to pay for transactions on the platform and can also be used to vote on and propose upgrades. Note: Coinbase currently only supports POLS running on the Ethereum blockchain (ERC-20).
(POLS) is a decentralized fundraising platform built for cross-chain pools and auctions. The network aims to allow projects to raise capital on a decentralized and interoperable environment based on , , Network, and several other .
Additionally, the platform allows projects to raise funds by setting up a swap pool defined by a fixed purchase rate for tokens (fixed swap pool). With the use of Polkastarter, the platform aims to facilitate decentralized projects to exchange and raise capital economically and efficiently.
According to the , in 2019, during the first initial decentralized exchange offering (IDO) on Binance , DEXs had yet to gain much traction in the market. Fast forward to 2020, with DEX’s increased popularity, IDOs became an inexpensive way to get around the centralized initial exchange offering model and thus decreased the initial expense for a project’s token listing on Uniswap. With this, a substantial amount of liquidity was provided to a pool. As a result, many investors influenced the crypto price by buying the entire pool in one swap. They increased the (cost to perform a transaction on Ethereum) on their wallet to purchase the entire newly created token pools at lower prices.
The entire process led to wild volatility, and the (automated market makers) would dynamically adjust the asset’s price based on demand and supply. An automated market maker (AMM) is a decentralized exchange (DEX) protocol on which assets are priced according to a pricing algorithm. Additionally, increasing usage and popularity of platforms reinforced scalability issues. There is an increase in the fees for the Ethereum network followed by slow platform performance, leaving end users frustrated.
As a solution to the aforementioned problem, was developed with the possibility of making both cross-chain swaps and fixed swap pools (powered by the ecosystem). Furthermore, this feature aims to provide higher throughput for efficient transactions while staying connected to the Ethereum Network and other blockchains for liquidity. This has eliminated the scenario of decentralized finance being tied to one chain. With this feature, the platform caters to consumers' demand for cheap transactions, fast and secured swaps, user-friendly design, and ease of buying and moving assets between blockchains. Additionally, Polkastarter has the following use cases:
Closed over-the-counter deals with password protection
Token pools, including Dutch and sealed-bid auctions
Governance: Token holders can vote on product features, types of auctions, token utility, and which projects get featured by Polkastarter.
Fees: Transaction fees to be paid in POLS

Staking for Pool Access
In the case of high-demand pools, there can be limited access to the network and liquidity contributors. Whitelisting and password protection could provide additional limits. Nevertheless, tokens can be used as a coordinating mechanism to align the interests of the entire Polkastarter community. Therefore, the community members must stake POLS tokens to access certain token pools.
To incentivize participation in daily token pools, the platform envisions launching a liquidity mining program concurrent with MVP launch on Ethereum. The platform aims to give out a fixed amount of POLS tokens daily through this program. All liquidity providers will receive the token on a pro-rata basis.
Additionally, liquidity providers can claim their token rewards after 24 hours and have seven days to claim their reward tokens on the platform dashboard. Unclaimed POLS will be sent back to the rewards pool for later distribution.
