DeFi Summer Incoming? | Round Up

In this week’s episode, Mike and Michael breakdown all things DeFi. They discuss the ecosystem writ large and whether we’re seeing a return to 2021’s ‘DeFi Summer’, and the value proposition of sustainable fees as the key differentiator. The guys go on to review Rune Christensen’s Solana Fork MakerDAO proposal, Visa’s crypto stablecoin settlement expanding to Solana, as well as recent regulation setbacks. We then close out on the spot Ether ETF Bid From Ark Invest, 21Shares - hot off of Grayscales spot BTC ETF win - and the wider cycle sentiment. Enjoy!
