    I love the new trend of CEXs listing new DeFi tokens on day 1 because they are scared of losing a massive amount of volume to DEXs if they wait even a few days.I’d really hate to be one of those people who think that DeFi on Ethereum is a joke.

  • From MerschMax_:

    We’re at the dawn of the Ownership Economy:@UniswapProtocol – a 2 year old automated market maker on Ethereum – launched their $UNI token today.They distributed 150m $UNI to their early users. At $3/UNI, that’s currently $450m airdropped to their most loyal userbase. 1/5
