BASE’S NEW FANBASE: Simply because the Buddy.tech fad pale, sapping among the post-launch adoration of Coinbase’s new Base layer-2 blockchain (as chronicled in final week’s The Protocol), there’s a brand new child on the town: Aerodrome Finance. The platform, which markets itself because the Base ecosystem’s “premiere liquidity engine and hub,” has rapidly attracted greater than $170 million of TVL or “total value locked,” serving to to push the general TVL of protocols on Base to greater than $400 million. The key? In accordance with the publication Wu Blockchain, the venture’s “native token, $AERO, offers liquidity mining rewards with an annualized yield close to 1,000% without compounding.” That’s rather a lot, even in crypto. Aerodrome’s TVL has now exceeded – “flippened” in crypto jargon – the $158 million on Velodrome, Aerodome’s predecessor venture, which sits on the older layer-2 chain Optimism. Is it sustainable? “Money doesn’t materialize out of thin air,” Wu Blockchain famous dryly, so “it’s worth considering when this spiral might come to an end.” (A Base zit: On Tuesday, the community suffered a “major outage” that lasted just a little over three hours, its greatest glitch for the reason that launch final month.)
