Centralised Exchanges To Become Gateway For DeFi

July 25, 2023



Undoubtedly, DeFi has seen new advancements in zero-knowledge proofs (ZK-proofs) as a scaling solution as more DeFi protocols embraced the technology. The top 100 DeFi tokens had a mixed performance in the month of July, with most of the tokens continuing to trade in a similar range as the beginning of the month. A new United States Senate DeFi bill attracted a lot of scrutiny — though not necessarily of the positive kind — as many stakeholders came out to slam the “unworkable” legislation. The CEO of the dydx Foundation made a bold prediction that centralized exchanges will eventually become a gateway for DeFi, while Polygon 2.0 laid the groundwork for decentralized governance.

The DeFi ecosystem has been witnessing several additions and upgrdation in recent times making it more compatible with digital assets and the related ecosystem. Some of the most talked about events have reshaped the DeFi and are expected to pave the way for the centralized exchanges to be prevailing strongly in the cryptosphere.

Polygon 2.0 begins the groundwork for decentralized governance

The Polygon Labs has also started to work on expansion focused on upgrading blockchain and all the other applications running on the Polygon network.

DeFi liquidity protocol adds ConsenSys-developed zkEVM rollup Linea

While the popularity of the layer -2 scaling solutions which are based on ZK – proofs grows, the decentralized finance liquidity protocol has established support for Linea, a zkEVM.  This developer-ready zkEVM rollup is said to be Ethereum – compatible allowing developers to reuse a lot of its existing infrastructure for creating multi–asset solutions. Presently, Linea is comprised of 100+ protocols, decentralized applications, and developer tools that make it the potential scaling tool in the Ethereum ecosystem.

Overview Of The DeFi Ecosystem

As stated by Cointelegraph Markets Pro the DeFi’ total market value witnessed a bullish surge almost after the three bearish weeks. Alongside, the reports from Trading View also indicate that DeFi’s top 100 tokens by market capitalization have experienced a bullish week with most of them trading in the green zone. The total value locked in the DeFi protocol was found to be below $50 Billion. These numbers and bullish periods are seen as the result of significant development by the centralized exchanges which are seen as a growth sign for the DeFi sector.
