  • This Week in DeFi – June 19th

    To Our DeFi Community,
    Compound’s launch of the COMP token earlier this week may have very well sparked a new trend in DeFi – liquidity mining (also known as yield farming). In case you somehow missed it, the leading lending protocol has begun distributing COMP tokens to each of the protocol’s money markets pro-rata by the total interest accrued. While many were anticipating the launch, few expected the results.
    After initially listing on Uniswap for $16, COMP tokens have soare… … More

  • This Week in DeFi – May 29th

    Bang bang. Another awesome week in DeFi in the books!

  • This Week in DeFi – May 15th

    To Our DeFi Community,
    Another promising week for DeFi is in the books.
    The week kicked off with ErisX launching the first US-regulated futures on ETH. While ErisX futures contracts aren’t the most widely traded, the key takeaway is that the CFTC will allow Ether-based futures contracts to launch legally in the US.
    Importantly, these are physically-settled futures contracts, meaning that the contracts require the digital delivery of ETH when the contracts expire – rather than the cas… … More
