There has been a lot going on in the Binance Smart Chain [BSC] network. The latest to hit the smart contract platform is the RAMP DEFI, multi-chain decentralized finance or DeFi protocol that launched its Liquidity Incentives Program on 30th November 2021. According to the blog post, RAMP’s ‘collateralized stablecoin lending protocol‘ would facilitate users to deposit assets at high APYs and borrow against these tokens at the same time, allowing for a seamless scaling platform.
For starters, APY or annual rate of return plays the role of cryptocurrency savings account equal to annual percentage rate (APR) account. Further, the blog stated,
With this incentive program, we hope to help new DeFi users discover the full potential of the RAMP platform and maximize the full value of their crypto-asset ownership in the process.
Another important project that is doing the rounds is the launch of a new meme coin dubbed Rocky Inu [ROCKY] created exclusively on the Binance Smart Chain, two days ago. As per the press release, the canine-themed project takes its inspiration from famed meme coins such as Shiba Inu, to create a ‘low cap gem with massive moonshot potential’. That being said, the press release further claims that the newly launched coin is supported by some of the well-known influencers in the crypto world, which would propel it to reach new heights of popularity.
