The MantlePlace got another exciting improvement, this time adding the Whitelist feature, This allows prominent AssetMantle genesis creators to create a pre-approved list for active community members to get a guaranteed spot in upcoming NFT mints.
These improvements make it clear that the team is on track for delivering on the roadmap and launching the complete Mantleplace in the coming weeks.
Looking ahead to the next quarter:
As the Mantle team pushes ahead with its plans to launch the much-awaited Mantleplace platform at the start of the fourth Quarter, it is widely expected that several metrics specifically transactions and wallet count will increase as people begin interacting with and minting NFTs on the AssetMantle chain.
Creators and Partnerships:
In the second Quater, the mantle team worked closely with their initial round of genesis creators in order to prepare them for the launch of the Mantleplace platform. Following the launch of the Mantleplace main-net, the team guided the genesis creators and supported them with transitioning their collections onto the Mantleplace platform and preparing them for going live.
You can find more info on the genesis creators here, in addition to those detailed on the link provided there were also several new & noteworthy additions to the genesis creators group including:
A collection of hand-drawn zombies. Zombies are presented in different roles and clothes, and each zombie has attributes in the form of project logos in the Cosmos ecosystem.
CDGS Asset Mantle Metaverse Warriors engage in interchain interplanetary warfare. They live the values of duty, loyalty, selfless service, integrity, courage, and honor. The collection has 330 images.
Stone Punks is a 2K NFT Collection of 3D dimensional stone matrix fragments of both animate and inanimate objects
A collection of 888 unique 1/1 ai generated NFTS. Alpha Citizens come from a realm higher than humanity which has only just been realized.
As you can see from the graphic below, the Mantle team’s connections are growing as their ecosystem of partnerships evolves.
In the third quarter, the AssetMantle team continued to push hard on the business development front. They established partnerships and connections with many notable projects, including Axelar:
“Axelar delivers secure cross-chain communication for Web3. Our infrastructure enables dApp users to interact with any asset or application, on any chain, with one click.” –https://axelar.network
In addition, the Mantle team also helped to shape the discussion by attending several key industry events such as web3conf in which the Founder of AssetMantle Deepanshu Tripathy was a speaker.
In order to encourage broad network adoption and further ecosystem development, the Mantle team has created the MantleGrants program. The program allows any developer, artist, or NFT enthusiast whose project will add value to the ecosystem to apply for a Grant to fund development, with projects like RushRaids & Myriad Flow already working within the MantleGrants program.
In September the AssetMantle MantleGrants Program webpage went live. Check it out below: https://grants.assetmantle.one/
Current grant recipients include:
– Kevin-A-Kidd is creating a proof-of-ownership Discord bot for NFTs on AssetMantle
– MyriadFlow: An innovative platform to explore & launch NFT Experiences
– Glitchcandies: Cosmos-based, Exploring Audio-visual experiences in the Metaverse
AssetMantle has partnered with several DAOs that will be evaluating the projects in tandem with the team. A transparent, open discussion process will ensure that the best projects are put at the forefront and gain the most attention.

With respect to the MNTL token, there have been several key developments over the last quarter: in particular, three centralized exchanges listed MNTL token. This is perfect timing as this gives many new MNTL holders opportunities to buy & trade their favorite tokens on the platform of their choice ahead of the Mantleplacde launch.
In addition, it is now easier than ever to acquire MNTL for the purpose of minting NFTs when the platform goes live.
In terms of staking, MNTL bonding ratio is currently around 54% and stakers are currently receiving an APY of approximately 141 %, you can view more staking stats on the AssetMantle chain explorer.
Community members can acquire MNTL tokens on various DEXs including:
– Osmosis DEX
This insightful article provides detailed instructions on how to provide liquidity to pools on Osmosis DEX for users who want to take advantage of AssetMantle’s competitive liquidity pool incentives.
In addition, users can bridge their MNTL token across to the Ethereum chain using the Gravity bridge, holders will then be given an ERC20 representation of MNTL which can be used for participation in Uniswap and Ethereum DeFi.
MNTL tokens are also listed on three centralized exchanges including:
These three CEX listings, on top of the existing DEX listings, provide community members with several ways to acquire & trade MNTL tokens.
Looking ahead to the next quarter:
AssetMantle has deployed the ERC20 MNTL on Uniswap and other EVM DEXs, so in the next quarter, holders can look forward to the team integrating MNTL into Polygon and participating in the Polygon ecosystem including an incentivized listing on QuickSwap DEX.
AssetMantle’s vision is to have MNTL tokens widely available, liquid, and free tradable across the cryptosphere, giving AssetMantle users simple & efficient access to MNTL tokens in whichever ecosystem or platform they prefer. With respect to this, there are tons of other great MNTL developments planned, such as fiat onramps, liquid staking, integration with crypto debit cards, and much more. So stay tuned, as MNTL’s use case is about to get a whole lot bigger!
Since 2018, AssetMantle team members have been spearheading interchain NFTs that enable the flow of non-fungible assets across the Cosmos ecosystem and eventually beyond. The platform provides a comprehensive ecosystem and marketplace framework which allows for the exchange of non-fungible assets across multiple blockchain ecosystems.
The platform uses the interNFT standard for NFT mining where it standardizes the metadata at the protocol level. This allows users to:
- Have a common wallet implementation for all interNFT implementations which can hold ownership information of multiple kinds of interNFTs from multiple chains in a single wallet for an account.
- Natively send the ownership of interNFTs across chains through inter-chain communication protocols without a requirement for bridges or token transformation/pegging
AssetMantle’s interoperable, interchain NFTs are simply the logical and organic evolution of NFTs that will finally unlock their hidden potential. People can send their assets across multiple IBC blockchains without relying on bridges, thus conserving security and scalability.
In this quarter, an increasing number of noteworthy blockchain players are consorting to this new paradigm, and see interNFTs as a needed evolution of the medium.
In Quater 3, InterNFT working group call #12 took place where additional implementations and use cases were discussed. Memora and MyraidFlow, two of the projects using InterNFT presented their application use cases in InterNFT working group call #13.
Open-source contributors and developers from the following projects participated in the working group calls:-
- Myriad Flow
- Notional DAO
- Mandae Network
- Arcana Network
- My Own Internet
- Axelar Network
- Lazurus Network
