Nov 8, 2022
Greetings, Shade Protocol community!
We're thrilled to announce the release of Airdrop Part Two and the official launch of Bond Staking. This unique version of staking allows users to earn $SHD ('shade') yield by locking up their $SHD over a specific timeframe. This is considered the first version of staking, with a more feature-complete version involving veSHD and multiple staking strategy options to be released in the near future.
Airdrop Part Two: A Celebration of Achievements
It has been one year since the original snapshots for Shade Protocol were taken (November 7th - December 13th 2021). Since then, Shade Protocol has achieved the following:
Multichain Airdrop 20% ($ATOM, $SCRT, $LUNA)
Staking Derivative (stkd-SCRT)
Targeting Q4 2022 and Q1 of 2023 is the launch of ShadeSwap, ShadeLend, and SILK.
In celebration of ShadeBonds and the launch of staking V1 on November 8th of 2022 - the next 10% of the multichain airdrop is officially released!

The tokenomics of Shade Protocol are outlined in the official Shade Protocol docs. Currently, 1,450,000 SHD are earmarked for the Shade Protocol airdrop. Part one of the Shade Protocol airdrop released 20% of these airdrop tokens. The claim rate for the first part of the airdrop was ~48% (140,000 SHD claimed) over the course of this first 10 months. The second part of the airdrop is releasing 10% of all earmarked SHD rewards (145,000 SHD) for those who successfully qualified for the original airdrop back in 2021. Check Airdrop Eligibility
If ~70% of those who have claimed part one of the airdrop claim the second portion of the airdrop, then there is a projected ~36,500 SHD added to circulating supply. This would increase circulating supply by ~7.30% as current circulating supply is ~500,000 SHD.
Shade Protocol is an ambitious array of application-layer products focused on a simple end-user experience that involves theincorporation of privacy by default. These interconnected privacy-preserving DeFi products built on Secret Network will change DeFi as we know it — empowering the next generation of value creation and exchange. Shade Protocol is launching Silk: a privacy-preserving collateralized, reflexive stablecoin built on Secret Network.
Without privacy, DeFi is incomplete. Traditional financial markets offer a degree of privacy for users, and as a result, offer up greater protections in some capacity than existing DeFi markets. Shade Protocol will be the world’s first truly cohesive decentralized and privacy-preserving financial applications — ushering in a golden era for Web3. Shade Protocol will always push for privacy by default, privacy as an expectation, and privacy as the key to unlocking the full value of a decentralized future.
But we can’t do this without community. We need you to join our community and help make Silk and Shade Protocol a reality.
