The bZx Protocol is a Ethereum-based DeFi lending protocol which users can borrow, lend, and margin trade without relying on third parties. In the past, margin traders had to use centralized exchanges (CEXs). And while decentralized exchanges (DEXs) can have vulnerabilities, CEXs have many weak points that can be exploited.

Less than six months ago, the concept of TrustSwap didn’t exist. So, where did TrustSwap come from, and what use case does TrustSwap fulfill? According to the TrustSwap CEO, Jeff Kirdeikis, a venture capital firm wanted to invest large amounts of money into a project token sale for a discount. However, the firm also wanted to ensure the VC firm wouldn’t sell all the coins at once resulting in a ‘pump and dump’ scheme.

The Bancor Network is one of the longest-standing cryptocurrency projects, and among the first to pioneer decentralized financial applications (dApps) and token swaps. Despite a heavily-publicized attack and various legal hurdles throughout its infancy, the Bancor Protocol is emerging as a stand-out platform. Bancor shows great potential, thanks to recent upgrades and services to the network and the higher utility of the BNT token.

The world of decentralized finance (DeFi) is an exciting space to be in. It can seem like every day there’s someone or some initiative introducing a new protocol, upgrade, or some other creative, new way of putting various DeFi building blocks together. Nevertheless, this also increases the need for prudent smart contract security, and smart contract audits.

New and exciting DeFi projects launch all the time, and it can be difficult to keep up with them all. More specifically, understanding project fundamentals, the services they can offer to users, announcements of partnerships and integrations can all seem abstract. Matic Network, on the other hand, a Layer-2 scaling solution utilizing Plasma side chains, has a very concrete use case. Put simply, Matic Network is a scaling solution underpinning dApps and DeFi applications, addressing some of the Ethereum Network’s scalability challenges.

PAID Network (PAID) is a project which aims to provide blockchain-based DeFi-driven legal agreements known as “SMART agreements”. So, why is this needed and what does it mean? To begin with, the current global framework for cross-border settlements is fractured. As such, interoperability between regional legal systems is lacking in many parts of the world, and legal procedures can be drawn out, complex, and expensive. What’s more, systemic inefficiencies of the current legal infrastructure make it difficult for small settlements to be pursued. PAID Network looks to be a simple and easy-to-use alternative to this.
