Monthly Update_April 2021

Dear DeFiners:

Exciting times! Every day there are announcements of new projects, new collaborations, new breakthroughs, and new all-time highs.

We at DeFiner are thrilled to be a part of this crypto wave, and we’re thrilled to have you along for the ride. In this newsletter, we share the biggest news looking back at Q1 and looking ahead to Q2.



🚀 OKEx Chain

Crypto and DeFi are very popular.

The Ethereum network is running at full capacity, so fees are increasing. To take pressure off, and to add options for the DeFi community, new smart contract chains are starting. DeFi platforms are starting to integrate these Ethereum alternatives.

One first attempt in our crosschain effort is from the leading crypto exchange, OKEx. We at DeFiner are pleased to announce we will be integrating the OKEx Chain in the coming weeks!

Read the Announcement Tweet.

What does this mean?

In addition to the Ethereum blockchain, users will be able to use OKEx Chain to interact with DeFiner—depositing, withdrawing, or borrowing. Until the integration is complete, users can use the OKExChain testnet. Follow these instructions.

Once our integration is complete, users can choose between Ethereum and OKExChain, whichever is best for each person’s needs. (And after OKEx Chain, DeFiner plans to add other chains, too!) 

Finally, in addition to implementing new chains, we’re also working to improve our Ethereum smart contracts to reduce gas fees.

📈 New Highs

DeFiner has enjoyed drastic growth in a number of areas.

👨‍💻Market Cap: The FIN token has quadrupled in value through Q1. Get yourself some FIN at any of the several exchanges listing our token.
