  • “The market is moving to a multi-chain world which only makes participating in DeFi harder," Polygon co-founder JD Kanani said. "Affine is ahead of the curve in helping end users tackle this complexity in a sustainable way.”

Tools that can simplify the process in the way Affine claims to be able to do could therefore prove to be high in demand.
