This programming competition is hosted in Ho Chi Minh City as the second stop in the 2023 APAC Hackathon series. By doing so, BingX helps promote the growth of Web3 talent in Vietnam’s emerging crypto market, as well as contribute to the prosperity of the local Web3 community.

As a diamond sponsor, BingX recently wrapped up its participation in the Taiwan Builder House blockchain event. This Hackathon event gathered the region’s brightest minds to brainstorm and develop innovative solutions in the Web3. The competition encompassed themes of Trading, DeFi, GameFi, SocialFi, and NFT, offering participants an opportunity to engage closely with top-notch projects and fulfill conference-related tasks. Additionally, Josh, BingX’s Director of Business for the Asia-Pacific region, served as a judge for this hackathon.

Megan Nyvold, Head of Branding at BingX, stated: “We are proud to sponsor these meaningful events in Vietnam and Taiwan, where we believe future experts of the blockchain industry will emerge.

Aperture Finance Secures Series A Funding at a $250M Fully Diluted Valuation to Build Intent-based Architecture for DeFi

Published

aperture-finance-secures-series-a-funding-at-a-$250m-fully-diluted-valuation-to-build-intent-based-architecture-for-defi

 $APTR native platform token set for release on May 31, 2024

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Aperture Finance, a decentralized finance (DeFi) platform pioneering AI-powered intents, has raised a Series A funding round, bringing the total across all rounds to $12 million and valuing the project at $250 million. The round was led by top-tier venture capital firms including Skyland Ventures, Blockchain Founders Fund, and Krypital Group, with participation from notable investors like Alchemy, SNZ, Stratified Capital, Tide, Cipholio, ViaBTC, CatcherVC, and Double Peak. Previous rounds included participation from ParaFi Capital, Arrington Capital, Divergence, Blockchain Founders Fund, Laser Digital (Nomura Group), Skyland Ventures, Costanoa, Rarestone, Krypital Group, Big Brain Holdings, LD Capital, ViaBTC, Cipholio, Double Peak, Athena Ventures, Coinseeker, Artemis Capital, and AWS.

Aperture Finance is innovating the use of Intents, a novel approach designed to streamline complex DeFi operations. Unlike traditional transactional methods, Intents allow users to specify their desired outcomes, simplifying interactions with DeFi protocols and enhancing accessibility. This innovative system leverages Uniswap V3, enabling users to declare end goals, such as liquidity rebalancing at specific price points, with transactions executed only when these conditions are met. The platform is already live on 9 EVM-compatible chains, processing a transaction volume exceeding $2.7 billion with 280,000+ unique users and 15k+ daily active users.

“Intents architecture bridges the gap between sophisticated financial strategies and everyday DeFi users,” said Yonkuro, Head of Crypto at Skyland Ventures. “By enabling users to articulate their financial goals in natural language, Aperture is  making advanced DeFi tools accessible to a broader audience, from retail investors to institutional players.”

The platform’s decentralized network of solvers calculates optimal transaction flows, which are then simulated and ranked by Aperture’s smart contracts. Initially launching with a centralized solver, the network has expanded to third-party solvers including Propeller Heads and Enso Finance with other solvers like Tokka Labs set to join in Q3 2024.

Aperture plans to further leverage its Large Language Model (LLM) interface that will convert user intents expressed in natural language into a domain-specific language (DSL) that can be codified on-chain. This feature aims to ensure clarity and precision in user instructions, further democratizing access to complex financial instruments.

“Aperture Finance is committed to reducing the learning curve in DeFi and providing more strategic options for our users,” said Peter Tan, Head of Product at Aperture Finance. “Our goal is to offer the same level of execution and pricing typically reserved for large institutions, making DeFi more inclusive and effective.”

The new funding will support the development of Aperture’s Intents infrastructure, expand its solver network, and enhance the user experience with the forthcoming LLM integration. This investment underscores the growing confidence in Aperture Finance’s potential to transform the DeFi landscape.

Following a successful airdrop campaign with participation from over 300,000 users, Aperture Finance will launch its $APTR token on Bybit on May 31, 2024.

About Aperture Finance
Aperture Finance is a pioneer in AI-powered intents to enhance the DeFi experience. Featuring an IntentsGPT interface and an AI-driven smart solver simulation, Aperture’s native solver network provides any DeFi user with institutional-grade intelligence. Combining the brightest minds in technology and finance, the founding team includes alumni from Amazon Web Services and Google, Stanford, Cornell, and UC Berkeley, and Citadel, JPMorgan Chase, and AIG. Aperture was a cohort member of Most Valuable Builder V by Binance Labs and participated in CoinMarketCap (CMC) Accelerator and HK Cyberport Incubation Programs.

Vitalik Buterin claws back crypto community’s right to redefine ‘inflation’

Published

on

vitalik-buterin-claws-back-crypto-community’s-right-to-redefine-‘inflation’

Ethereum’s co-founder argues for the crypto community’s authority to redefine “inflation” as the expansion of currency supply, challenging conventional economic definitions and tackling misinformation.

Vitalik Buterin, one of the creators of Ethereum, has emphasized that the crypto community has already staked its claim to redefine the term “inflation.”

Buterin’s remarks were prompted by a post from digital media outlet Axios, which humorously suggested that “inflation” now refers to high prices rather than the traditional concept of rising costs.

Although the Axios post was presented in a lighthearted manner, Community Notes (CN) clarified that the definition of inflation remains unchanged.

Buterin’s response, posted on Farcaster, contested Axios’ interpretation of inflation by asserting that the crypto community has already reshaped the meaning of the term.

“[…] we already decided that it now just means ‘increase in the total supply of a currency’.”

Buterin’s rebuttal garnered support from other users on Farcaster, including former Coinbase employee Binji.eth.

Traditionally, inflation refers to the general increase in the price level of goods and services, resulting in decreased purchasing power as currency value diminishes.

However, Buterin’s argument suggests a cultural shift in the definition of inflation, proposing that ongoing global inflation arises from an essentially unlimited increase in the total supply of currency.

Tech investor Lee Edwards criticized Axios’ initial post for perpetuating misconceptions rather than educating readers.

Buterin has recently been active on Farcaster, advocating for community-driven solutions and initiatives focused on preserving privacy and addressing exploitation issues.

While Buterin has not commented on the concerns surrounding Ethereum Foundation researchers Dankrad Feist and Justin Drake’s involvement with EigenLayer, their decision to become advisors at EigenLayer in exchange for significant compensation in EIGEN tokens has sparked debate within the crypto community.

While some members support the transparency of the disclosures, others have criticized the decision, suggesting that the substantial compensation could influence decision-making.
