ETHLend Announces Launch of New Parent Company 1574

Founders behind popular Swiss-based decentralized digital asset-backed lending platform ETHLend, today announced the launch of Aave, a new technology company focused on empowering people through innovation. The name Aave, which comes from the Finnish word for “ghost,” was chosen because the brand continues to intrigue users through its evolving and imaginative technology. The technology-based venture intends to fill the gaps left by centralized fintech industry players such as PayPal, Skrill, and Coinbase, by introducing new products and services, such as Aave Pocket, Aave Lending (SaaS), Aave Gaming, Aave Custody, and Aave Clearing.

The executive roles will remain the same with ETHLend becoming a subsidiary brand under Aave. Stani Kulechov will stay on as CEO, Jordan Lazaro Gustave as COO, and Nolvia Serrano as CMO. Mika Söyring will join as CFO and Ville Valkonen as CCO. Mika previously served as the CFO of health technology company Revenio Group Corporation (formerly Done Solutions Corporation) and has extensive experience as an entrepreneur and a financial specialist. Ville previously operated a legal consulting firm that focused on start-ups in Finland and also worked for law firms, focusing heavily on SMEs and providing counseling on contract matters.

Stani Kulechov, CEO of Aave said, “By integrating our innovative technology into the services already offered by traditional institutions, we can transform the way people interact and provide new products and services that will help them seamlessly achieve their goals at a lower cost, ultimately giving them access to new opportunities that have not been possible before.”

“Aave is a pioneer in the lending industry. As ETHLend, Aave was the first in the space to provide a solution to those in need of liquidity and unlock what was previously viewed as unassailable funds,” said Andrew Karos, CEO and Founder of BlueFire Capital and an Aave customer. “It’s very satisfying to watch them evolve. As a U.S.-based market maker, I can confirm that they understand the level of importance in policy, procedure, and safety, and look ahead with much enthusiasm for the future of our working relationship.”

Aave’s portfolio of products range across several industries, including technology, finance, and games. The company will continue to power its existing products in addition to new ones aimed at Millennials and Generation Z.  Several products under Aave’s line include:

  • Aave Pocket is an ambient account innovation, and one of the first products developed by Aave to serve the gig economy and micropayments industry, removing the need for credit cards and bank-to-bank fees between online merchants/developer entrepreneurs, and their end-user customers. All transactions stay where the user is earning and spending, contained within an application, enabling true peer-to-peer payment, even across international borders.
  • ETHLend is a decentralized financial marketplace for peer-to-peer digital asset-backed loans operating on the Ethereum blockchain using smart contracts. ETHLend solves the liquidity challenge of being cash-poor, but crypto-asset rich. Borrowers can request secure loans by pledging their cryptocurrency assets as collateral to receive spendable funds. This enables borrowers to retain their exposure on cryptocurrency without the need for selling the assets when the borrower has sudden expenses.
  • Aave Lending, inspired by ETHLend, is a turnkey solution for the digital asset-backed lending market. Aave Lending solves the issues that follow digital asset storing and digital asset-backed loan management for creditors. As a SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) solution, creditors can easily start a digital asset-backed lending business while Aave takes care of secure collateral storage, notifications, and liquidation upon margin calls.
  • Aave Custody, currently available for use, is designed for institutional or private investors and serves as a custodian for storing digital assets. Aave stores private keys by following the highest and most innovative security standards. Funds can be moved in and out of custody on a daily basis.
  • Aave Clearing is an over-the-counter (OTC) cryptocurrency clearing service for institutional investors and businesses who need to convert large amounts of cryptocurrency with speed and efficiency. The platform provides users with an easy-to-use interface and an API connection, giving them the ability to generate quote requests for cryptocurrencies as well as exchange their cryptocurrency for traditional currencies.
  • Aave Gaming is an innovative game studio focused on creating a new gaming experience using Blockchain, Smart Contracts and Mixed Reality.

“In the last decade, legacy industries have experienced a major change. Banking is no longer limited to traditional institutions,” said Jordan Lazaro Gustave, COO of Aave. “As a team of developers and creative thinkers, Aave is no stranger to these market forces. By integrating emerging technologies we will continue to offer secure and transparent applications, with reduced costs, to instill trust and confidence within our users, while delivering an experience they can enjoy.”

Fund Your Gnosis Pay Card Using Bitcoin 6024

The Kinetex team is thrilled to announce its integration with Gnosis Pay, the world’s first on-chain self-custodial account that connects the traditional payment rails to Web3 rails.

This collaboration provides a straightforward and fast way to top up balances from Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other EVM-compatible tokens by swapping them to EURe via Kinetex’s Flash Trade. It enables users to fund the Gnosis Pay account seamlessly and, in turn, be able to spend their on-chain assets at any Visa merchant worldwide.

Kinetex’s Flash Trade is an intent-based trading protocol that leverages the power of ZK technology to ensure a seamless cross-chain trading experience. One of the most revolutionary features of Kinetex is its support for Bitcoin. By introducing BTCX, a ZK light client built with Succinct Labs’ infrastructure for programmable truth specifically for Bitcoin, the team was able to connect the first cryptocurrency to the ever-growing DeFi ecosystem.

Swapping via Flash Trade is instant, secure, and cost-effective thanks to the advanced ZK technology. This technology enables users to carry out transactions without the need for intermediaries, centralized validators, or complex smart contracts. The process is streamlined by implementing an intent-based approach that connects traders and market makers, making the latter responsible for ensuring liquidity, fast execution times, and low costs.

The integration between Kinetex and Gnosis Pay is set to change how crypto owners can use their assets, empowering them to spend crypto funds in their everyday lives. Together, Kinetex and Gnosis Pay contribute to accelerating both the mainstream adoption of crypto as a means of payment and the maturing of the DeFi industry.

About Kinetex

The integration of Bitcoin into the DeFi ecosystem marks a monumental development for the cryptocurrency industry. As the pioneer and most valuable cryptocurrency, Bitcoin has long been seen as a store of value. However, with the rise of DeFi, Bitcoin’s potential for use in financial applications has soared. In this transformative landscape, Kinetex is leading the way, expanding Bitcoin’s use cases and acting as a bridge between orthodox finance and the new world of DeFi, thus unlocking its full potential.

Contributors to Kinetex Network are actively working on broadening the list of supported networks. Their goal is to encompass over a dozen networks, including popular L1 ones like Bitcoin, Solana, Aptos, Sui, BounceBit, and Berachain. They are also in the process of connecting various L2 Ethereum networks, including ZkSync, Linea, Base, Scroll, and Blast. As for L2 Bitcoin networks, Merlin, Rootstock, Bitlayer, and others will be integrated soon. By increasing the number of networks users can access, Kinetex is breaking down the barriers between different chains, uniting the blockchain ecosystem and thereby significantly enhancing the global crypto user experience.

EthosX Launches New Perpetual Options Product 6190

EthosX is excited to announce the launch of its new Perpetual Options product being launched in partnership with kanalabs.io on their front end. Called OPerps, it aims to be one of the most accessible and efficient ways to enhance returns by using knowledge about short-term market events.

The product aims to help users leverage their market predictions to generate consistent income and maximize returns.

OPerps is a decentralized platform for short-term options trading. It harnesses the power of blockchain technology to enable efficient and transparent options trading, which happens via a user-friendly interface designed to empower those new to derivatives.

OPerps lets users trade tokenized (ERC-20) options that never expire but settle every few minutes/hours. These perpetual options solve the problem of cascading liquidations found in traditional perpetual futures.

Furthermore, offering them in a decentralized, tokenized format allows for continuous trading opportunities while enhancing security and flexibility on the platform.

OPerps Opportunities

OPerps aims to maximize the trading potential of investors by giving them opportunities to profit from sudden market movements. This can happen through two avenues; Long Call OPerps and Long Put OPerps.

Investors can engage in trading Long Call and Long Put OPerps to capitalize on market movements. Long Call OPerps profit from rising markets, while Long Put OPerps benefit from downtrends. Conversely, Short OPerps allow users to potentially earn premiums from Long OPerps token holders, with Short Call OPerps profiting in falling markets and Short Put OPerps in rising markets.

OPerps live options positions aren’t restricted to the platform. A live options transfer feature allows users to move their live option positions to other wallets and protocols for added convenience.

As part of the trading experience, the new platform gives users more leverage and APY choices. Traders can choose between high leverage (up to 1000x on BTC/ETH) or high APYs (triple-digit returns).

OPerps includes features to limit losses and avoid sudden liquidations, providing a safer trading environment.

OPerps is a rare innovation in the history of capital markets that leverages the structure of decentralized finance (DeFi) to give traders the ability to transfer live options positions to anyone anywhere in the market. The platform offers different operational modes: Normal mode on Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and DEGEN mode on Arbitrum for varied trading experiences.

OPerps uses data from the Pyth network for prices of options underlyings (BTC & ETH for now). Pyth’s real-time data feed makes the Degen mode possible.

About EthosX

EthosX is a protocol for trading high-value vanilla/exotic derivatives without going through banks, brokers, and other intermediaries. It provides a platform for investors to trade directly with one another with minimal counterparty and minimize settlement risks.

The platform is designed from both crypto and traditional asset classes. But whether a user is trading cryptocurrency options or TradFi derivatives, clearing and settlement are done in an automated and decentralized smart contract-based clearinghouse for capital-efficient trading.

Meet TON-Margined trading at Storm Trade 7755

Storm Trade is the first decentralised derivatives trading platform on Telegram, built on the TON blockchain and allowing trading with leverage up to x50. Keeping up with the times and providing all the best technologies to its users, Storm is releasing a major update – TON-Margin, which will change the way you trade!

What is TON-Margin?

Many perpetual platforms, including Storm Trade, typically trade in stablecoins. However, TON-Margin opens the door to trading using TON as collateral. This gives traders more flexibility, variety and the ability to profit from even small price changes. And of course it brings the TON blockchain closer to true mass-adoption.

Since January 2024, 2 trading pairs to TON have been available on Storm Trade: TON/USD-CM and 1mNOT-F/TON, which showed great popularity among the exchange’s traders. Today, 10 trading pairs to TON are available on Storm Trade, and TON/USD-CM remains the most popular of them.

TON-M provides new opportunities, combining both risks and benefits. The main advantages of futures with TON to provide are:

  • Choice of asset to trade and expanded trading opportunities,
  • The ability to trade without selling TON for stablecoins,
  • Non-linear payout structure and increased profits even on small price movements,
  • Hedging of risk even in a falling market.

The main disadvantage of futures with TON in collateral is the rapid reduction of collateral when volatility is high.

The emergence of TON as collateral and the opening of new trading pairs is a great event for the entire TON ecosystem because it opens up almost limitless earning opportunities for holders, stakers and TON traders.

TON-Margined futures are an excellent tool for increasing trading income, protecting against losses in a falling market and diversifying your trading strategies. Trading only TON, on the TON blockchain, and using TON as a commission payment, on par with listing Notcoin on major exchanges, makes TON fully ready for the wave of new users that should inevitably happen in the near future.

Don’t forget about risk management, trade with an amount of funds that is convenient for you, learn new things and expand your trading experience with Storm Trade!
