OpenOcean


Quote:
OpenOcean is the world’s first full aggregation protocol for crypto trading that sources liquidity from DeFi and CeFi markets and enables cross-chain swaps. Our intelligent routing algorithm finds the best prices from DEXes and CEXes and splits the routes to provide traders the best prices with low slippage and fast settlement. The product is free to use; OpenOcean users only need to pay the regular blockchain gas and exchange fees for the trades, which are charged by the exchanges and not OpenOcean.

OpenOcean aggregates major exchanges (DEXes and CEXes) and across Ethereum, Ethereum Layer 2 such as Loopring and Polygon, Binance Smart Chain, Solana, HECO, Ontology, TRON, and is the first full aggregator on Binance Smart Chain, TRON, Ethereum Layer 2, and Binance exchange. We continue to aggregate public chains and exchanges based on the needs of the community.

Review:
OpenOcean is a centralized and decentralized exchange aggregator. It aggregates cross-chain data and allows for cross-chain exchange of tokens, allows for arbitrage opportunities, in addition to aggregating derivatives, yields, lending, and insurance products. Many features! Incredibly useful!

Sturdy Finance


Quote:
Sturdy is the first DeFi lending protocol with interest-free borrowing and high yield lending.

Sturdy is a first of its kind of DeFi lending protocol offering interest-free borrowing and high yield lending. Users can interact with the protocol in two ways: as ‘borrowers’ who take out loans and provide collateral or as ‘lenders’ who earn yield on their assets.

Borrowers pay no interest, withdrawal fees, or deposit fees. Instead, their collateral is staked, and the yield from their staked collateral is used to provide interest to lenders. Lenders benefit from interest rates that are higher and more consistent than a money market where borrowers pay a variable APY.

Review:
Sturdy Finance is a new model of defi lending whereby users can receive high stablecoin yields such as USDC, USDT, or Dai, in addition to open and take out interest-free loans.
