It is designed to allow users and other decentralized protocols to exchange ERC-20 tokens on its platform with low fees and low slippage. Curve DAO Token (CRV) is the utility token of the Curve DeFi protocol used for exchanging stablecoins and other ERC-20 tokens, along with staking, boosting, and voting for governance purposes.
Yi He, Co-Founder of Binance and Head of Binance Labs, commented: "Curve is the largest stableswap, and as a key protocol in DeFi it has contributed to the steady growth of the space in 2023. Given the recent events that have impacted the protocol, Binance Labs has offered our full support to Curve through our investment and strategic collaboration. We view this cooperation as a starting point and look forward to working together to further propel the growth of the DeFi ecosystem."
Strategic Alignment for BNB Chain Support
Curve currently operates across several chains, offering the advantages of speed and cost. As part of the collaboration, Curve plans to deploy to BNB Chain. Curve serves as a foundational layer of DeFi, and the move will further propel the growth of the BNB Chain DeFi ecosystem.
“BNB Chain has earned a significant presence in DeFi, and is well positioned to deploy Curve's current and future products on its chain. We look forward to collaboratively fostering innovation and growth across the DeFi ecosystem," said Michael Egorov, founder of Curve.
