Coinbase has announced plans to integrate the Polygon network in its mobile app and extension. With this integration, users can enjoy Polygon’s faster speed with low transaction costs. Further, this will also help users to get access to dApps on Polygon.

In addition, users can utilize the Polygon bridge to send any Ethereum tokens such as USDC, DAI, UNI, and more from the Ethereum mainnet to the Polygon network.

Uniswap v3 has declared the launch of Optimistic Ethereum Layer 2 scalings in alpha. As per the blog, this alpha launch is a limited version of the full system. This will help developers to quickly address any issues that may arise.
As stated, the platform will support an initial throughput of 0.6 transactions per second during this alpha period. However, transactions on OΞ confirm instantly to avoid any pending or stuck swaps. The team also revealed that OΞ would offer ten times lower transaction costs. However, increased demand may push gas costs higher. Initially, only limited assets are launched, such as ETH, USDT, WBTC, DAI, and SNX, but more will be added in the near future.

DAFI Protocol reveals the development of its native bridge. As stated, this DAFI bridge will initially operate with Ethereum, Polygon, and Binance Smart Chain. Later on, DAFI’s partners will utilize this bridge as a service while adopting the smart synthetic dTokens. Further, this will operate to maintain the supply/demand of the DAFI token.
DAFI Protocol addresses various issues faced by the blockchain networks, and it aims to solve the problem of excess token supply. Consequently, this will enable the community to use ERC-20 $DAFI on other high-speed and low-cost networks. Besides this, different projects utilize DAFI Protocol to create their own dToken while DAFI safeguards these tokens against hyperinflation for the long-term stability of the network. Hence, this DAFI bridge launch will entice new users and expand its adoption.
You asked, we listened! 👂
This service will be offered to partner networks, further expanding on DAFI's utility! ⚡️https://t.co/IOANuJAfsE

In the last bit of crypto news for today, we have Lossless declaring the launch of its wrapped tokens to safeguard the DeFi ecosystem. As stated, these wrapped tokens work on any ERC-20 tokens and offer a safeguard against hacks via a Lossless protection code. Impressively, it doesn’t have any upfront cost and a fixed percentage fee is taken from a saved hack only.
Interestingly, this code creates a pegged L-token version of the existing or newly launched tokens. In order to do any unethical activity, hackers need to unwrap the wrapped tokens first before changing them to another asset. White hat hackers and bots are on the lookout for any hacks impacting L-tokens. Such assets can then be frozen and then returned if foul play is proven. In addition, these features would increase the trust of token holders and projects, which will play a vital role in the global DeFi adoption.
Lossless-wrapped tokens coming to take the DeFi market by storm 🌪️ Our hack protection code will be embeddable into contracts and will create L-tokens.
The Lossless standard will spread to L-ETH, L-BTC, and the whole ecosystem.
