The decentralized finance (DeFi) space has continued to make waves in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space.
Interestingly, we have compiled ten of the top DeFi updates that took place in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space last week. OpenOcean’s strategic partnership with Avalanche and Chainlink to provide dApps with top-notch price feeds are some of the top DeFi updates that took place in the blockchain and crypto space for the first week of September 2021.

2- SCV Finance | Tree Finance – Impacting the Environment
The blockchain and crypto space, since its inception, has been a source of concern for environmentalists. This is majorly because of the amount of energy needed to smoothly carry out blockchain operations. Tree Finance, in partnership with SCV Finance, on the other hand, is looking to positively impact the environment.
The partnership will make it possible for the first NFT to be backed by trees, which will be planted around the world. Interestingly, these real trees can be tracked and identified using blockchain.
