Decentralized finance (DeFi) and the control it gives users over their assets is one of the most applicable sectors of the cryptocurrency ecosystem, but the general public is still hesitant to interact with most DeFi products due to the steep learning curve and the opportunity to lose funds. One decentralized exchange (DEX) taking steps to bridge the gap between DeFi and centralized finance (CeFi) is QuickSwap (QUICK), the top-ranked DEX on the Polygon network. Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView shows that QUICK’s price saw a rapid 50% increase in value from $166.40 on Jan. 31 to a daily high of $250 on Feb. 1 after 24-hour trading volume jumped 168%. had risen.QUICK /USDT 4 Hour Chart.

This also provides DOGE and ADA holders with additional ways to use their assets in DeFi to earn a return rather than simply holding their DOGE or staking their ADA. New liquidity pools could attract a new breed of investors A second factor that helped boost QUICK’s price and momentum was the launch of several new liquidity and ‘syrup’ pools. This could be a bullish sign, especially when you consider that a handful of projects launched in January and integrated bridges to the Polygon network. Aside from the addition of support for DeFi protocols such as Atlantis Loans or the layer-one blockchain solution Orbs (ORBS), QuickSwap has seen a flurry of additional support for non-functioning tokens (NFT) projects, which, despite its broader weakness in the cryptocurrency market. Some of the newly supported NFT projects on QuickSwap include the UniArts network, Dogira, OneRare, and Blockchain Monsters Hunt.
