Alchemix

Alchemix Finance is a DeFi protocol that allows people to create yield-backed synthetic tokens in exchange for providing their cryptocurrencies as collateral. Visitors can for example deposit their DAI into the protocol, and receive (a lesser amount of) alUSD tokens, equally pegged to $1. The protocol uses the collateral provided by its visitors to collect yield and dynamically repay the depositors' debt, essentially giving its users an immediate claim on the future yield of their tokens. The protocols native token is ALCX, used to govern the development and directional decisions of Alchemix.

Ambient

Ambient (previously known as CrocSwap) is a DEX that is run in a single smart contract, where individual AMM (automated market maker) pools are included in the same contract instead of being separate smart contracts. Ambient single-contract architecture is designed to reduce gas and taxes while allowing users to seamlessly manage collateral in a single platform. Ambient was developed as a new codebase that provides various different features compared to other DEXes. The team believes that the economics of AMMs are "broken", which causes liquidity to be centralized and controlled by very few. In order to change this, Ambient built their protocol from the ground-up allowng for deeper and varied types of liquidity and introduced various features and quality of life improvements vs other DEXes. These features include: * Gas savings vs other competing DEXes * Gasless transactions - users can pay in the swapped token instead of ETH for gas (using the EIP-712 off-chain standard) * Permissioned pools * Different types of liquidity - Concentrated (similar to UniV3), ambient (similar to UniV2), and knockout (similar to limit orders) * Dynamically adjusted pool fees

Bancor

Bancor is a decentralized exchange. It is distinguished from other DEX protocols by its automated market maker, which lets people deposit liquidity in a single-sided fashion, whereas many other platforms require its visitors to provide liquidity with their tokens in an inherently two-sided way. Bancor's automated market maker mechanism achieves this through its native token, BNT, which is dynamically minted and co-invested by the protocol when visitors deposit their collateral as liquidity. Besides having BNT as the unitary counterpart asset of exchange for trading on the platform, the protocol also offers a unique solution against Impermanent Loss to its liquidity providers.

Cardano

**What:** Cardano is an open-source and decentralized, proof-of-stake blockchain platform. Its native cryptocurrency is ADA which can be used to participate in the running of the network as well as an exchange of value. Within the Cardano platform there are two different layers: The Cardano Settlement Layer (CSL), and the Cardano Computational Layer (CCL). ADA lives on the CSL which was built to be where the accounting of value takes place. The CCL exists on top of the settlement layer, and is designed to be similar to Ethereum, enabling smart contracts and applications to run on the platform. **Why:** Cardano is a project that began in 2015 as an effort to change the way cryptocurrencies are designed and developed. Cardano design emphasis is to accommodate the social aspects of cryptocurrencies, build in layers by separating the accounting of value from complex computation while at the same time addressing the needs of regulators. The platform seeks to rebuild trust in global systems by establishing a secure, transparent, and sustainable foundation for transactions, governance, and enterprise growth, guided by scientific principles. **Risks:** It is worth noting that while Cardano emphasizes its evidence-based development approach and testing, the project has a short history as a live project with working smart contracts. There is limited information on how the network runs and how it operates under stress as well as other potential risks that are evident in more battle-tested networks. **Benefits:** As a proof-of-stake blockchain, Cardano facilitates secure interactions and transactions among parties that do not know or trust each other, fostering trust in scenarios where it might not naturally exist. Its proof-of-stake design also means the network can scale without exponentially increasing energy consumption. Additionally, through an incentivized mechanism, participants are rewarded for their contributions as stake pool operators or delegators. The governance system allows ADA holders to submit or vote on proposals for platform upgrades or development direction.

Ethereum

### What Ethereum is open access to digital money and data-friendly services for everyone – no matter your background or location. It's a community-built technology behind the cryptocurrency ether (ETH) and thousands of applications and smart contracts (computer programs living on Ethereum) you can use today. The Ethereum network is a network of computers all over the world that follow a set of rules called the Ethereum protocol, and it acts as the foundation for communities, applications, organizations and digital assets that anyone can build and use. Ethereum allows you to coordinate, make agreements or transfer digital assets directly with other people. You don't need to rely on intermediaries. And because no government or company has control over Ethereum it is impossible for anyone to stop you from receiving payments or using services on Ethereum. As mentioned before, Ethereum is not controlled by any particular entity and it exists whenever there are connected computers running software following the Ethereum protocol and adding to the Ethereum blockchain. Each of these computers is known as a node. Nodes can be run by anyone, although to participate in securing the network you have to stake ETH (Ethereum’s native token). Anyone with 32 ETH can do this without needing permission. ### Why Ethereum helps people and communities to coordinate in a resilient, open and trustworthy way on the internet. It also gives people the tools to have self sovereignty over their digital assets, and is particualrly important for people who have had to handle uncertainty around the security or soundness or mobility of their assets due to external forces outside of their control. The core value of Ethereum is that you can interact with the internet without trusting a central authority that could change the rules or restrict your access. The internet was meant to be a free and open space for everyone, and Ethereum builds on this premise, allowing you to control your own assets and identity, instead of them being controlled by a few mega-corporations.

Euler Finance

### What Euler is a non-custodial permissionless protocol on Ethereum that allows users to lend and borrow almost any crypto asset. Euler helps users to earn interest on their crypto assets or hedge against volatile markets without the need for a trusted third-party. ### Why? Euler introduces a number of new features in DeFi, including permissionless lending markets, protected collateral, reactive interest rates, per-second compounding interests and feeless flash loans. #### Permisionless listing Euler lets its users determine which assets are listed. Any asset that has a WETH pair on Uniswap v3 can be added as a lending market on Euler. #### Protected Collateral On Compound and Aave, collateral deposited to the protocol is always made available for lending. On the other hand, Euler allows collateral to be deposited, but not made available for lending. This collateral is 'protected'. It doesn't earn interest, but is free from the risks of borrowers defaulting, can always be withdrawn instantly, and helps protect against borrowers using tokens to influence governance decisions. #### Reactive interest rates Euler uses control theory to autonomously change the interest rates towards a level that maximises utilisation of assets in the protocol. These reactive interest rates adapt to market conditions for the asset in real-time without the need for ongoing governance intervention. #### Compound Interest Compound interest is accrued on Euler each second. This is different from other lending protocols, where interest is typically accrued every block. Earning interest per-second is generally expected to perform more predictably in the long-run, even if upgrades to Ethereum lead to changes in the average time between blocks. #### Feeless Flash Loans Euler only charges fees according to the time value of money, and from the blockchain's perspective flash loans are held for a duration of 0 seconds. Thus, they are entirely free on Euler (ignoring gas costs).

Forta

The Forta Network monitors on-chain activity in real-time, detecting threats, security-related events and other noteworthy activity. The network is made up of thousands of detection bots developed by a community of Web3 developers and security experts. Each bot acts like a little security camera monitoring something specific on-chain. Some bots monitor generic threats (i.e. phishing attacks, rug pulls), and others monitor protocol-specific activity (i.e. Lido, Compound). There are two primary actors in the Forta Network: **Users, **who consume threat intel generated by the network. Users could be Web3 wallets, DeFi protocols, or centralized exchanges looking for the latest threat intel to protect their customers. **Developers,** who create and maintain detection bots. They could be a leading Web3 security team, an independent security researcher or a DeFi core dev using Forta to monitor their protocol.

friend tech

Buy and trade tokens of your twitter "friends" onchain. - Owning a "key" (previously referred to as a "share") to a twitter friend allows you to talk to them and read their "alpha" in a private chat with other keyholders. - Speculators may wish to buy keys in the hope the value will go up as more people buy keys of twitter friends. ### Risk - On signing up you must give friend tech permissions to tweet on your behalf (you can revoke this in Twitter settings after you've signed up). - There is currently no Privacy Policy (23-Aug-2023). - The value of friends' keys can go up or down depending on demand, so if you buy a key there is a chance it will go down in value. - There have been similarities drawn with friend tech being similar to "paid groups". ### Reward - By paying for keys you get to talk with people you may not otherwise have the opportunity to talk to. - Speculators have bought popular people's keys early, before their value goes up, allowing them to sell keys for a profit as demand (and price) increases. - When people trade your keys you earn a fee from those trades (as does friend tech).

Futureswap

Futureswap is a decentralized non-custodial perpetual protocol where users can gain leveraged exposure (up to 256x) to assets. Liquidity providers deposit passive liquidity in order to earn passive income from trading fees and FST incentives. This liquidity is utilized by the Futureswap AMM and other AMMs under the hood to create leveraged exposure. Realistically under the hood, Futureswap operates as a lending protocol as no leverage contracts are being created but only liquidity providers lending funds while holding collateral.

Lido

### What Lido is an open source tool and family of protocols that enables users to mint liquid staking tokens (sTokens) - These liquid staking tokens receive rewards from validation activities of writing data to the blockchain, but unlike their staked counterparts, are "unlocked" which means they can be used in other on-chain activities, like DeFi. Lido protocols let users stake native tokens (ETH, MATIC, SOL) from Ethereum, Polygon, and Solana networks in a fully permissionless way. And as the protocols are deployed on public blockchains, users do not need the website to access the smart contracts. ### Why Traditional staking means that users need to lock-up their ETH or other native asset to be able to secure the network and receive the respective rewards. However, this means that these tokens can't be used for anything else while they are staked. Lido aims to solve this problem. Lido protocols give users liquidity - users are able to receive staking rewards from validation activities, but can sell their stTokens (tokens minted on Lido) anytime they want to exit their staking position. In addition, it allows users to participate in DeFi while getting rewards - Because sTokens are unstaked and thus "liquid", users can use stTokens as building blocks in DeFi protocols at the same time as getting staking rewards from validating activities. The Lido DAO also works with experienced node operators, which decreases the likelihood of technical mistakes that could lead to slashing or penalties and minimizes the technical burden for users to receive staking rewards. Users supply the stake, and the node operators supply the know-how.

Morpho

Morpho Blue is a decentralized protocol enabling the overcollateralized lending and borrowing of crypto assets (ERC20 Tokens) on the Ethereum Virtual Machine. The protocol is implemented as an immutable smart contract, engineered to serve as a trustless base layer for lenders, borrowers, and applications. Morpho Blue is licensed under a dual license (BUSL-1.1 and GPLv2) which you can find [here](https://github.com/morpho-org/morpho-blue/blob/main/LICENSE). Once deployed, Morpho Blue will function in perpetuity, provided the existence of the Ethereum blockchain. ### Why Within a year, Morpho has become the third-largest lending platform on Ethereum, with over $1.5B in deposited assets. Morpho's initial version, Morpho Optimizer, operates on top of Compound and Aave to enhance the efficiency of their interest rate model. But consequently, Morpho Optimizer’s growth is constrained by the current underlying lending pool design. In particular, the current lending paradigm is: - Not Trustless: It relies heavily on its DAO and trusted contractors to monitor and update hundreds of risk parameters daily or upgrade large smart contracts. - Not Efficient: It provides inefficient rate spread, low collateralization factors, and charges fees to maintain the platform itself. - Not Flexible: It has a limited number of assets listed. Users have no choice but to subscribe to the one-size-fits-all risk-return profile proposed by the DAO. Although DeFi lending has grown rapidly under existing protocols like Aave and Compound, we need to rethink decentralized lending from the ground up to reach the next order of magnitude. Having spent two years developing the most significant platform built on top of these onchain funds, Morpho is uniquely positioned to recognize and address its limitations. As anticipated in the initial whitepaper, Morpho must metamorphose to become fully autonomous and improve the current state of DeFi lending. We call this evolution Morpho Blue 🟦.
