In the last version of the Runtime update, Bifrost opened up the SALP protocol for the first time to support parachain bidders outside of Bifrost. By supporting four parachain bidders — Basilisk, Altair, Kintsugi and Parallel Heiko — Bifrost has accumulated a total of 124,912 vsKSM & vsBond mintages and surpassed $40 million in lockups.
This v0.9.1 update contains:
Enabling vsKSM and vsBond transfers
Implement SALP Farming module
SALP Farming module will give derivatives mining play, stake your $vsKSM & $vsBond to the Farming Pool and get a mining reward from BNC + bidding parachain Candidates. For this upgrade, all BNC holders can vote in this poll to see how you feel about it. Feel free to join the proposal discussion in the Bifrost Forum and tell us what you think.

SALP Reward Distribution Model Update
Due to realistic technical cost issues, Bifrost has decided to partially adjust vsBond’s equity properties for the time being.
vsBond is still used as a credential to participate in a parachain auction, and can be combined with vsKSM to enable 1:1 redemption of KSM, but at this stage, holding vsBond no longer means receiving a parachain reward, only the original address (please note that it is minted, transfers/transactions are not counted) that participated in minting vsKSM+vsBond will be recorded in the auction by the SALP module. In the list of contributors. After a successful parachain bid, the bid rewards will be distributed by the project to all addresses in the contributor list.
Participation in crowdloan through SALP is now available for up to three tiers of rewards.
ZLK Reward: Use Contribute — Advanced Mode in Zenlink Slot Vault to participate in crowdloan. Because the Advanced Mode integrated Bifrost SALP module on the Zenlink Dapp and users can receive both ZLK Rewards and vsKSM & vsBond derivatives assets.
Parachain Bidding Reward: Addresses that use SALP to mint vsKSM+vsBond will be recorded and rewarded by the bidding project officials
SALP Farming Mining Reward: This reward does not overlap with the parachain auction reward. vsKSM & vsBond obtained from any channel can participate in SALP Farming and receive a mining reward.
Referendum name: Farming module online, vsKSM & vsBond transfers open

In the next upgrade, Bifrost will launch the v0.9.2 Bancor upgrade proposal, which will open liquidity exchanges for derivatives for the first time. At that time, users will be able to participate in vsKSM => KSM exchanges via the Bifrost Dapp, please stay tuned.
