Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) is an ERC-20 token with a 1:1 peg to Bitcoin. This means that users can seamlessly convert their Bitcoin tokens to a wrapped version and use them on the Ethereum blockchain. In essence, WBTC succeeds in bringing the liquidity of Bitcoin over to the Ethereum network. So, why should you care? Well, if you’re a Bitcoin hodler, you can now put your BTC to work on Ethereum in places like decentralized finance (DeFi).

Cryptocurrencies have become increasingly commonplace over the past few years. Ever since Bitcoin’s dramatic price rally during late 2017, the notion of crypto and digital currency has become widespread all over the world. However, the cryptocurrency sector is not the only example of digital currency. Central banks are waking up to some of the advantages offered by cryptocurrency and are instead looking into the Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) field. So far, traditional central banks have printed physical fiat currencies, and banks have provided financial services to consumers.

Binance is often referred to as the world's number one crypto exchange platform in terms of trading volume, however, this crypto giant offers far more than their reputable centralized exchange. Binance has created its own blockchains; decentralized exchange, charity and funding schemes, education academy, Trust Wallet, alongside research monitoring the latest innovations and market analysis within the crypto industry.

The launch of the Injective Protocol has caused a wave of headlines and speculative video content across the crypto ecosystem. The project appears to have solid foundations with a credible team of developers and advisors, who have previously worked in large tech or other blockchain projects. The whitepaper for Injective Protocol was released in December 2018, avoiding the ICO hype, successfully receiving funding from venture capital firms, other DeFi platforms, and a public IEO through the Binance Launchpad.

The global economic landscape is changing, and this has only been expedited by economic turbulence caused by the recent pandemic. Digital payments have already replaced cash in many countries, and while central banks across the world debate the implication of Central Bank Digital Currencies, it is becoming clear how blockchain is rebuilding the global economy.

The simplest way to describe Ren is that it’s a decentralized interoperability protocol. What it means for decentralized finance (DeFi) is that permission-less value transfers between blockchains can now take place. This is huge where the subject of liquidity is concerned because Bitcoin hodlers can move their BTC over to the Ethereum blockchain to participate in things like DeFi.

The decentralized finance (DeFi) industry keeps on booming. As such, there is a surge of interest in becoming a DeFi developer and being able to help create the DeFi ecosystem of tomorrow. Perhaps one of the most well-known DeFi developers in the space is Andre Cronje, the prolific coder and creator of Yearn Finance and the YFI token, a yield aggregating platform that took the decentralized finance (DeFi) world by storm earlier this year.

OpenZeppelin is a security operations platform with countless security best practice features already built into it. Specifically, it describes itself as an open-source framework for building secure smart contracts, meant to simplify the process of building smart contracts. Practically speaking, this means that smart contract developers on Ethereum can ship their products faster, whilst also minimizing security risks.
