Users of crypto exchange Binance can now stake dai and kava as the exchange's decentralized finance (DeFi) staking platform goes live.
In a statement to CoinDesk, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao said:
The move means Kava users no longer need to interface with the Kava app but instead can go directly through Binance's DeFi staking portal.
Kava's CEO and co-founder, Brian Kerr, said today's DeFi market would not resemble tomorrow's, claiming the sector is just at the "tip of the iceberg" in terms of adoption.
Staking in DeFi means users can participate, utilizing smart contracts, on various issues via voting in a proof-of-stake model as well as earning passive rewards by locking up their crypto.
