Tangled: Social Discovery App
Our next BNB Chain Project Star Tangled, is a live social discovery app where you can meet people with similar interests. Every moment you spend hanging out with people in Tangled is monetized and rewarded.
The team has already confirmed that the Tangled mobile application will officially be available to download from the 25th of August. This will offer users ease of access as they begin to navigate the different features.
With the Web3 platform already offering a fun experience for users, with a sleek backdrop that offers access to its Web3 live chat, where you can begin to interact with other users in the industry.

Rareboard: NFT Marketplace Aggregator
Rareboard is an NFT Marketplace Aggregator built for BNB Chain. During their first month as part of the Binance MVB program the platform has surpassed 29,000 BNB in all-time trade volume and 4500 in mint volume, hosting over 100 collections. This comes from their aggregation of more than 10 different NFT Marketplaces spread across the BNB Chain network.
The project has also been working hard on new features to keep the community safe, with our new Shielded Buys and Shielded Bids. Rareboard users can now safely bid and buy on dynamic NFTs from marketplace partners, in the knowledge that Rareboard's code will not allow the seller to remove accessories or other valuable items from the NFT before the sale goes through.
The team is close to adding trending NFT collections to the home page of Rareboard, so users will be able to see at a glance the entire ecosystem. Rareboard’s data engineers have completed the backend for this, and they are looking forward to providing accurate and trustworthy data to all NFT collectors, researchers and analysts.

pStake: Multi-Chain Liquid Staking Protocol
pStake, having recently launched its liquid staking product on BNB Chain, has been chosen as one of our monthly stars for August.
The project is a multi-chain liquid staking protocol that unlocks the liquidity of PoS assets by issuing staked representative tokens against users’ bonded assets, allowing them to earn DeFi yields on top of staking rewards. pSTAKE’s liquid staking solution is live on 3 chains, namely Cosmos, Ethereum, and Persistence.
Liquid staking support for BNB has now gone live after the project saw their contract undergo extensive audits. Additionally, pSTAKE is in the process of developing liquid staking solutions for other leading assets in the industry.
pStake is the flagship product built by the Persistence team. They are one of the earliest adopters of Proof-of-Stake and have been building in the Cosmos ecosystem since 2019 (BNB Beacon chain is also built using the Cosmos SDK). They participated in the first ever PoS incentivised testnet (Game of Stakes), launch of the Cosmos Hub, and initial testnet for Inter-Blockchain Communication (Game of Zones).
pSTAKE is committed to constantly bringing liquid staking innovation to popular PoS chains and DeFi ecosystems. pSTAKE is leading the charge and already beginning to gain traction. The rise in pSTAKE’s adoption is a testament to the demand from stakers to unlock additional yield in DeFi.
The team’s broader vision is to make liquid staked stkASSETs the default assets of the staking economy and become a one-stop-shop for users to stake and find DeFi opportunities across top-tier ecosystems. With much more planned in the pipeline, Persistence and pSTAKE are poised to make a notable impact on DeFi moving further into 2022 and beyond.
