Avalanche is the latest base layer to be added to decentralized finance (DeFi) aggregator OpenOcean.

  • OpenOcean connects decentralized and centralized exchanges on its supported networks, automatically seeking the best trades.
  • The site has processed more than 970,000 transactions since its launch in September 2020 and claims to have 270,000 active unique addresses, a rough proxy of users in the pseudonymous world of DeFi.

  • Avalanche and its native AVAX token have surged in recent weeks as DeFi users look to get a slice of $180 million in incentives on Benqi, SushiSwap and other decentralized lending platforms.
