  • This Week in DeFi – July 3rd

    To Our DeFi Community,
    The pace of innovation in DeFi never ceases to amaze.
    Whether it’s new products, new upgrades, new tokens, or new investment rounds closing, we’re genuinely having trouble keeping it up with it all. To give you an idea, here’s what we saw this week alone as DeFi closed out Q2: Kyber’s Katalyst upgrade launch date set for July 7th

  • This Week in DeFi – June 26th

    To Our DeFi Community,
    The liquidity wars have begun. With virtually every DeFi protocol now launching or exploring yield farming incentives, we’re beginning to see a fight for liquidity on Ethereum.
    And it’s just beginning. While Compound and Balancer have been prime examples of successful launches for yield farming- where their native governance tokens soared in value alongside hundreds of millions in new liquidity – there are dozens of other protocols jumping into the queue … … More

  • 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 – June 5th

    To Our DeFi Community,
    Boom. Another week in the books!
    The week kicked-off with Balancer, the DeFi non-custodial liquidity and asset management protocol, launching Liquidity Mining. Users can now earn BAL tokens by becoming a liquidity provider. With these tokens following the SAFG framework, BAL has no economic rights and are non-transferable. They simply represent voting power for future protocol changes. However, it’s important to recognize that upon a successful distribution, nothing … … More

  • This Week in DeFi – May 29th

    To Our DeFi Community,
    Bang bang. Another awesome week in DeFi in the books!
    One of the most notable announcements this week was the launch of the RenVM on Ethereum mainnet. For those unfamiliar, the RenVM allows users seamlessly mint BTC, BCH, and ZEC on Ethereum. The most important part? It’s trustless (or trust-minimized).
    Ren Protocol provides a novel solution as you’re not relying on a centralized institution to hold your assets cross-chain (like WBTC and BitGo) but instead a pi… … More

  • 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
