WAVES soars 33% in the last 24 hours

WAVES, the largest public chain in Russia, was established in 2016 by Russian physicist Sasha Ivanov. It was hyped to a historical high of $63.8 after the outbreak of war between Russia and Ukraine. Subsequently, Alameda caused a cliff-like price drop by continuously depositing USDT into Vires.Finance, borrowing WAVES to sell. The current price of WAVES is $4.8, with a market cap of $476 million, and a 33% increase in the last 24 hours. The position of WAVES perpetual contracts on Binance has increased from $19 million to $30.64 million in the last 24 hours. It might be worth keeping an eye on.

FIS will launch StaFi2.0

StaFi, initially supported by Polkadot's grants, expanded its scope to include the Ethereum and Cosmos ecosystems. The ecosystem boasts a locked-in value of $16.18 million. On March 1st, it unveiled StaFi 2.0, featuring several key updates:

  • Transitioning from a multi-chain LSD protocol to an LSD Infra Layer.
  • Introducing a burning mechanism for FIS tokens and introducing new utility programs.
  • Enhancing contract layer security by supporting multiple VMs such as EVM and WASM, alongside existing chain security.
  • Collaborating with the LSD protocol in the BTC ecosystem to develop a unified LSD solution for Bitcoin and integrating it into the existing LSD base layer.

While StaFi has outlined ambitious concepts and product extensions, their implementation will require a significant timeframe. FIS, the native token, holds a market value of $40.45 million, experiencing a 2.1% decline in the past 24 hours. The token burn is anticipated to occur in Q3.
