Solana-based Alfprotocol Provides Decentralized Capital for Investors and Traders
  • A Solana-based platform, Alfprotocol is born.
  • Alfprotocol is created to maximize the provision of liquidity with leverage and without.

A Solana-based platform, Alfprotocol is born to maximize the provision of liquidity with leverage and without. Alfprotocol is in fact a collection of protocols that provide decentralized capital for investors and traders.

With the goal to maximize the provision of liquidity with leverage and without, the protocol will provide unleveraged services in the form of AlfMM (a decentralized exchange service) and AAlf — an overcollateralized borrowing service.

In addition, Alfprotocol handles the leveraged liquidity through one of its modules that interface with external protocols like Solaris, Jet Protocol, and more to offer leveraged products up to 200x.

The Alfprotocol team chose the blockchain over due to its robust characteristics. And also the transaction volume per second, which significantly reduces transaction time.

Driving deeper, the fast reaction time of Solana will allow Alfprotocol to safely handle position liquidation just in time to securely cover the assets of the liquidity provider with his given interest.

Note that Solana’s lightning-fast latency is reportedly 27.5 times faster than Ethereum’s. As a result, the team behind Alfprotocol states that this creates a safer protocol for investors and the system, which will depend on timely liquidation events, if they happen, especially for instances with higher leverage.

Not to mention that Alfprotocol’s potential lies in its diversity and flexibility to satisfy traders and investors in a decentralized environment, with the security and protection that the Solana ecosystem offers. Currently, Alfprotocol is in development so for more info about the project, please visit the website and check out the whitepaper.

ZCash surges 7% after Digital Currency Group CEO announces $85M purchase

Digital Currency Group CEO and founder Barry Silbert has purchased more ZCash to add to his company’s coffers as the price of the token moved above $240 for the first time in days.

In a Wednesday tweet to his more than 678,000 followers, Silbert announced the purchase of $85 million in Zcash (ZEC), or roughly 376,106 tokens assuming an average price of $226. The buy is just the latest for Silbert, who seems to be portraying himself as a contrarian in the crypto market — responding to negative comments on ZEC by purchasing millions more.

NFT-DeFi Based Momento Platform Shifts Play-to-Earn Economy

NFT-DeFi Based Momento Platform Shifts Play-to-Earn Economy
NFT-DeFi Based Momento Platform Shifts Play-to-Earn Economy
  • Momento ecosystem shifts the P2E economy.
  • Unique gaming platform allows players to use various NFTs in their game.

Momento is an NFT and DeFi ecosystem that shifts the P2E economy. Their unique gaming platform allows players to use various NFTs in their game, not only offering lucrative opportunities for players but also use-cases for NFTs that currently don’t have one.

The gaming industry has always been forward-leaning when it comes to the adoption of any new technology. Most innovations in technology easily find use cases with gaming, be it the adoption of high-speed internet, mobile-first interactive gaming, virtual reality, augmented reality, and more. It comes as no surprise that the gaming sector is one of the primary adopters of cryptocurrency too, especially since crypto mining initially became popular because of gamers who owned GPUs. Even NFTs found applications within the gaming space.

When it comes to Web 3.0, gaming is again at the frontier of it. Web 3.0 and cryptocurrencies enable business models in gaming which wasn’t conceivable before. This is possible through the acceleration of the Play-to-earn economy.

The Need for a Paradigm Shift in Gaming

The accepted paradigm in the industry has been that gamers play just to have fun, leading to an industry with players more than willing to pay to play. However, the new perspective enabled by cryptocurrency is that players can not only have fun while playing, but it can be a lucrative investment opportunity too.

Play-to-earn games like The Sandbox and have become widely popular owing to their extraordinary economic system. In traditional games like The Sims, a player can buy in-game assets with an in-game currency. However, both the in-game asset and currency do not have any use in the real world. There is no infrastructure for the liquidity of these assets, but this is where blockchain technology solves this problem.

The essence of the P2E economic system is to ensure that playing a game can be profitable and that a player’s time spent playing a game is rewarded. People have an avenue to be able to make money playing games and have its value compound over time. By playing a game regularly, players can earn more items or tokens to sell and generate an income. Blockchain helps guarantee the nature of collectibility of these tokens. Through NFTs it can be ensured that these assets are non-duplicatable and scarce.

Each play-to-earn game’s mechanism can differ, but usually, the reward mechanism comes in the form of staking, farming a game’s currency, or generating tradable NFTs. Although numerous online games exist with a fiat-based auction or secondary markets, the critical difference with P2E on cryptocurrencies is through the properties of the blockchain. It creates in-game economies and business models with blockchain’s inherent properties of provable ownership, legitimacy, and rarity.

Cointelegraph Consulting: Gaming tokens usher in altcoin season

While remains in a cool-off period after thrusting to its all-time high in early November and the decentralized finance (DeFi) sector in an apparent dry spell, gaming tokens seem to have taken the spotlight as massive gains are seen across the industry.

The Sandbox’ SAND captured headlines as it spearheaded the enthusiasm for gaming tokens, with over 340% gains in the past month. Another one is GALA, with a similar 300% rally in November. Such coins, including those under the metaverse sphere like Decentraland’s MANA and Illuvium’s ILV, gained momentum after Facebook’s rebranding to Meta, suggesting that gaming tokens could be preceding a new altcoin season.
