The adoption of Olympus Professional by Botto is an thrilling second this week, as one of many first actual world examples of a non-DeFi protocol understanding and implementing the highly effective innovation in short-term bonds and shopping for liquidity slightly than merely incentivising it. Because the Olympus forks proceed to proliferate, it’s enjoyable to see innovation taking off in actual time, and to see initiatives within the crypto business validating the premise of protocol owned liquidity.

It wouldn’t be an enormous shock to see a mid-program shift from shopping for to renting liquidity – and whereas such a change would probably be the ringt long run choice, it needs to be fascinating to observe the response from each small group members and the massive liquidity suppliers with substantial weight to throw round to make their voices heard. Keep tuned!
