[PoS Round-Up] USDT launches on Solana, SushiSwap saga continues


One of the biggest recent Ethereum DeFi stories is the SushiSwap saga. The story so far:

Source: SushiSwap blog
  • SushiSwap launched with the aim of draining liquidity from DeFi giant Uniswap using a farmable governance token as an incentive for liquidity providers to make the switch.
  • SushiSwap creator “Chef Nomisold off his stake for roughly 38,000 ETH, a move widely decried by the community (though he later returned it). Control of the project was given to other developers, led by FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried.
  • The liquidity migration was successful, “vampire mining” more than $800 billion from Uniswap, though most of that liquidity had been locked in Uniswap for the purpose of earning SUSHI tokens.
  • SushiSwap lowered the reward for liquidity providers, leading to Uniswap retaking its lead in total value locked.

Bits & Pieces

  • Led by projects like SushiSwap, the DeFi frenzy led to transaction fees hitting a new all-time high this month, with miners raking in $17 million in a single day.
  • “If all goes well, November is still looking good for a[n ethereum 2.0] launch from our perspective.” — Raul Jordan in a recent blog post from Ethereum 2.0 client developer Prysmatic Labs.
  • Spadina, a “shortlived dress rehearsal” testnet, will run in parallel to Medalla later this month.
