DeXe’s Partnership with Venus Opens New Strategies for Both
Any comprehensive DeFi trading strategy should include smart deployment of capital. By partnering with Venus, the Dexe.network is giving its users access to more capital and Venus users access to top traders and trading strategies.
Venus is the leading decentralized marketplace on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) where users can borrow and lend stablecoins with ease. They developed VAI, the first stablecoin on the BSC that does not need a peg to fiat but is rather collateralized by a basked of other stablecoins (making it less susceptible to any sudden price changes in any one specific stablecoin).
Users are able to deposit a number of crypto tokens on Venus for a loan to accrue interest or borrow another token to trade with. This gives them options for what to do with the borrowed token (such as trade with it on Dexe Investment). And with interest, they can make their crypto works for them even when not trading.
Since Venus allows assets to be tokenized into vTokens that can be used to borrow with no trading fees nor slippage, it gives users an easier way to get liquidity when they need it. For example, Bitcoin cannot be traded in DeFi, but making it into a VToken makes it easily tradable on the DeXe Investment platform.
Or maybe a user has a token they really want to HODL for future value, let’s say BNB, but our trading pool they are interested in only trades BUSD (just an example). They can deposit BNB on Venus and get vBUSD to then deposit into our trading pool. This way, they get the benefits of active trading while still preserving their upside with BNB.
Per DeXe Network’s Co-Founder, Dmitriy Kotliarov: “Venus takes everything that’s good about BSC and uses it to make lending, borrowing, and creating liquidity as easy as it could possibly be in DeFi.”
As a platform, Venus gives DeXe users additional strategies to use in their trading and asset management. They can borrow assets to trade with leverage or lend assets to earn interest while waiting for that perfect trade opportunity. With BSC’s minimal fees and processing times, moving funds in and out of Venus couldn’t be simpler.
At the same time, Venus users gain access to DeXe Network’s traders and investment tools, including social trading. They can even use the native Venus (XVS) token to deposit into the trading pools on DeXe’s platform. This is yet another way for the DeXe Platform to integrate with the BSC. The DEXE token recently became easily accessible to BSC users thanks to the project’s partnership with PancakeSwap and with Binance adding DEXE to a smart bridge between the BEP20 and ERC-20 standard chains.
Venus’ CEO, Joselito Lizarondo, further adds “DeXe is introducing to the DeFi space advanced social trading strategies where the liquidity unlocked on the Venus platform can be deployed.”
For DeFi trading to scale and be accepted by main street, it needs to work in a low-fee, low-latency environment backed by stablecoins that are truly stable and do not rely on fiat. The partnership between the DeXe Network and Venus creates such an environment with a number of trading and asset management possibilities.
Dexe.network is a decentralized social trading platform that operates via autonomous smart contracts and includes tools for virtual currency allocation and automatic rebalancing. It eliminates the risks of transferring digital wallet details such as private keys and API or any virtual currency data to a third party. Most importantly, the DeXe Network connects successful traders and followers in a transparent, verifiable way for the benefit of both groups.
Venus is the BSC’s leading platform for borrowing, lending, and creating liquidity. Assets can be tokenized into vTokens. And it’s all underpinned by the BSC’s only stablecoin backed by a basket of other stablecoins (and not fiat) — VAI. The platform also has a governance token, Venus (XVS). The beauty of Venus is that the platform allows user assets to earn interest and serve as collateral with easy controls and high liquidity.
