Hebdo Crypto #186 – Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency News of the Week

The week of 14/03 in brief – News about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies is constantly boiling. It can happen that crucial information is lost in the daily information flow and that you miss important points. This format is there to remedy that. We come back to last week’s news in theCrypto Weekly to keep you updated on the current situation of cryptocurrencies.

Can’t miss the corner

Passionate about decentralized finance? Gregory too! This week he presents the results of his research with a presentation of the protocol Symbiosis Finance

Symbiosis Finance: the cash aggregator of the future

Thanks to Symbiosis Finance and the beta version finally available, it is now possible to transfer your funds through all blockchains compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). Of course, you retain control of your crypto assets from the beginning to the end of the process, which is the whole point of the solution Symbiosis provides.

In practice, these simple transfers will first enable you to interact with the protocols of your choice on the various blockchains that are now part of the DeFi ecosystem. But not only: indeed, Symbiosis also offers some inter-chain liquidity pools, with very attractive theoretical returns (although we’ll put a little damper on this later).

Developed by an experienced team of developers, Symbiosis is backed by some of the biggest names in the crypto industry (such as Binance Labs, Spartan Capital, and Dragonfly Capital).
