The World’s richest man Elon Musk finally clinched ownership of Twitter today, with support from leading crypto exchange Binance.
Binance CEO Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao confirmed that his company supported Musk’s $44 billion deal with a “small contribution” of $500 million. The contribution will help bridge the gap between social media and web3 and drive a wider adoption for the cryptocurrency industry.
It’s been a monumental week for Ethereum after its recent price gains saw it become the 50th most valuable asset globally, and now outpacing other Layer 1 networks.
According to CryptoSlate data, in the last seven days, ETH surged over 18.7% to cross the $1,500 mark, while other Layer-1 tokens like ATOM, MATIC, and SOL increased about 17.86%, 15.56%, and 12.49% respectively.
deBridge said it will launch a liquidity-on-demand infrastructure called DeSwap Liquidity Network (DLN), which will facilitate cross-chain transfers at zero slippage.
According to DLN’s design, it will provide on-demand liquidity, thus eliminating the need for protocols to lock up before completing transactions. The DLN infrastructure will help reduce the risk of bridge exploits, as the total value locked in protocols will remain zero.
