    DeFi Basket - Buy a DeFi Portfolio with a single transaction

    João Ferreira founder of Defi Basket - a portfolio management protocol that lets users buy a DeFi portfolio in a single transaction.

    Portfolios are called baskets. For example, The Stablecoins Maxi basket is a portfolio designed to provide exposure to non-USD stablecoins. It allows you to park your funds into a safe and stable investment, while you reduce your exposure to the US Dollar. This basket invests in liquidity pools that provide high single or double digits yields, each focused on a single stablecoin. This allows maximum returns with minimum impermanent loss.
    When you invest in a basket, you are given a financial NFT that shows how much you own of each asset. It can be transferred, lent, or sold as an NFT.

    The Graph - the web3 protocol for data

    The Graph - the web3 protocol for data

    Kyle Rojas is Edge & Node Business Development and Partnerships at The Graph, a web3 protocol for indexing and querying blockchain data to empower developers to build and give users access to blockchain data in a verifiable and decentralized way.
    Why you should listen The Graph is working to decentralize data indexing and query services for all public data on all blockchains. What Google did for web2 in a centralized and rent-extracting way, The Graph is doing for web3 in a permissionless, open-source, and inclusive way. Since The Graph launched its decentralized network in July, a huge community of indexers are serving query requests, curating useful information, and staking to protect the network.
    The Graph is an indexing protocol for querying networks like Ethereum and IPFS. Anyone can build and publish open APIs, called subgraphs, making data easily accessible. Subgraphs can be composed into a global graph of all the world's public information. This data can be transformed, organized, and shared across applications for anyone to query with just a few keystrokes.

    RociFi - a new DeFi primitive for under-collateralized lending

    RociFi - a new DeFi primitive for under-collateralized lending

    Christopher Brookins is the co-founder of RociFi, a new DeFi primitive for under-collateralized lending. In order to borrow on RociFi, users must mint an ERC-1155 token, NFCS (Non-Fungible Credit Score). The NFCS proves ownership of the address bundle that the borrower wishes to be credit scored. The NFCS operates as on-chain reputation and credit score.
    Why you should listen RociFi enables borrowers with clean EVM-compatible on-chain history and reputation to borrow with reduced or zero collateral while offering lenders a high, stable deposit yield. Initially, RociFi’s approved assets for lending and collateral will be USDC, DAI, USDT, ETH, and WBTC.
    As the protocol grows in adoption, it will function similarly to a Layer 1 whereby DeFi and TradFi firms can build new capital markets services atop RociFi, thus creating a decentralized credit economy.
    In order to borrow on RociFi, users must mint an ERC-1155 token, NFCS (Non-Fungible Credit Score). The NFCS proves ownership of the address bundle that the borrower wishes to be credit scored.
    The need for a unique, non-transferable on-chain credential that unlocks greater utility and safety across Web3 has grown in interest since Vitalik Buterin’s recent post about “Soulbound” tokens.
    RociFi’s NFCS was designed to be that and more by becoming Web3’s first, verified token for credit, reputation, and trust (CRT), i.e. proof of CRT.
