No Collateral Required: How Aave Brought Unsecured Borrowing to DeFi
Aave’s “credit delegation” service makes unsecured borrowing possible in DeFi for the first time. But it’s a long way from replacing your credit card.
Ethereum data firm Dune Analytics, which has stood out from the pack for its focus on DeFi projects, has raised a $2 million seed round.
Credit default swaps (of “The Big Short” infamy) have come to the Ethereum blockchain. Opium Exchange says they can help crypto investors manage risk.
Blockchain Capital, Standard Crypto, and Blockchain.com Ventures all joined the investment for the third-largest DeFi protocol.
DeFi credit market Aave has pulled ahead of stablecoin mint MakerDAO for the title of most collateral staked on Ethereum, according to DeFiPulse.
Venture capital is no longer just for the rich, as crypto markets let traders bet on early-stage digital-asset startups, risks included.
