Crypto.com Forks Uniswap & Launches DeFi Swap on Ethereum

Crypto.com believes DeFi is not a pure bubble and it will see growing demand, for which it has launched DeFi Swap, powered by its native token CRO.

Hong Kong-headquartered Crypto.com has launched a DeFi Swap service, which allows users to swap and farm DeFi tokens.

A fork of Uniswap V2, the platform is powered by its native token CRO, the 10th largest cryptocurrency by market cap, which is trading at $0.160, up nearly 6%.

Other coins supported are Wrapped ETH (WETH), Tether (USDT), USDC, DAI, Chainlink (LINK), and Compound (COMP), with more to be introduced in the future.

One can start farming by using any WalletConnect enabled mobile wallet, which the company says will soon be coming on its DeFi Wallet.

Gains & Losses

The liquidity providers (LPs) will be rewarded with 0.3% of the respective liquidity pools’ trading volume. For selected pools, LPs will also receive tokens that are redeemable for coins of the participating DeFi projects.

Crypto.com is guaranteeing a minimum reward pool of 14 million CRO for the first 14 days on this Ethereum-based decentralized protocol.

Meanwhile, those who stake CRO can “boost their yield by up to 20x and harvest the daily yield in as little as 30 days.”

These services, however, are restricted to the residents & citizens of over 30 countries, including the US, Mainland China, Hong Kong SAR, Iran, Iraq, and Venezuela.

Much like any DeFi project, the company clearly states using it at your own risk as it cautions of risks involved that aren’t limited to the loss of virtual assets, collapse in liquidity, changes in the smart contacts, extreme volatility, counterparty risk, attacks, hacks, defects, loss of private keys, and regulatory uncertainty.

“Not a Bubble”

The ongoing mania has resulted in the DeFi space exploding with the total value locked in it amassing nearly $10 billion, which after the recent correction, is currently under $8 billion.

However, “DeFi is not necessarily a pure bubble about to burst,” said Crypto.com in its report on decentralized finance. The report continued,

“It might deflate once the hype subsides, but as globalisation progresses and the business ecosystem further shifts towards new-generation business models built upon shared governance and decentralisation, there will be a growing demand for solutions like DeFi which will provide new ways banking, trading and investing – perhaps even setting the standard for economies to climb out of the shadows.”
