20 July 2020 – White paper released. Unit Protocol begins. Following the massively successful lockdrop event, we've spent the past few months working on one of the key parts of our system. Today we are ready to introduce Unit Protocol – a decentralised borrowing protocol that allows users to obtain liquidity from a large variety of tokens by minting USDP stablecoin. The COL token will still be used as an additional collateral for any debt created in the system and its distribution parameters will stay the same. You can take a look at our new site at https://unit.xyz/.
We came to the realisation that our previous name ‘The PayCash’ did not capture the core concept of the project. Concentrating human and financial resources on a decentralised borrowing protocol will allow us to speed up development and release the product sooner. We are excited to share a draft version of our whitepaper today, and we are looking forward to your feedback.
Right now, most of the contracts are finished and the protocol is nearing the internal testing stage. When we are confident that things work as we want them to, we will be ready to deploy the contracts to testnet along with a simple Dapp interface and ask our community to check it out. During that stage, we are going to iterate on a user-friendly interface for the Dapp and get everything ready for a code audit.
21 May 2020 – Trading starts on ViteX The Pay Cash COL is listed at https://x.vite.net/trade?symbol=COL-000_ETH-000 and will be available for trading right after unlock time. Vitex is a cross-chain DEX built on Vite protocol.

17 March 2020 – thepay.cash testnet goes live! The confirmation time is around 3 seconds. The plan is to be a 3-part system:
1. A stablecoin network with free transactions;
2. A collateral module. Mint USDP stable from COL and other ERC20 tokens;
3. A staking module.
