© Reuters Kaiko Releases New Data Tool for Tracking Ethereum DeFi Protocols

  • Kaiko’s new tool will track three Ethereum-based DeFi protocols: Aave, Compound, and MakeDAO.
  • The new tool can be used to optimize trading strategies, analyze yield, and follow the movements of crypto wallets.
  • The launch of the new DeFi market data product coincides with widespread market liquidity issues.

Kaiko, a cryptocurrency data firm based in Paris, recently announced the release of a product that monitors market data for Ethereum’s decentralized finance (DeFi) lending and borrowing protocols.

The newly released DeFi data tool will track Aave (AAVE), Compound (COMP), and MakerDAO (MKR), per the announcement on Nov. 29. These protocols account for over 78% of all worldwide liquidity locked in DeFi protocols, which is around $15 billion, according to Kaiko data. The data concerns five different kinds of “events” that can happen on these three DeFi protocols—loans, deposits, repayments, withdrawals, and liquidations. All this is now available to Kaiko’s customers through a single API market data offering.

In addition to keeping tabs on the lending and borrowing market, the new tool can be used to optimize trading strategies, analyze yield, and follow the movements of crypto wallets.

DeFi Offers Full Asset Ownership Amid Liquidity Crisis

DeFi gives its users complete control over their crypto holdings by allowing them to self-custody their funds rather than using a trusted third party. It is also open to everyone, without requiring special authorization or encryption.

DeFi’s composability is an additional perk that lets users employ any combination of pre-existing protocols and decentralized apps. It does not require the user to go outside the system for approval. This gives users more leeway to pick and choose the strategies that work best for them.

On the Flipside

  • The launch of the new DeFi market data product coincides with widespread market liquidity issues. The highly speculative digital asset market has seen further volatility and industry-wide effects following the collapse of FTX, once one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world.

Why You Should Care

Many questions about uncontrolled centralized platforms have been raised by the fall of the now-bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange FTX. Investors are also increasingly doubting the security of keeping their money on these exchanges. Consequently, they have begun shifting their focus toward DeFi protocols.

After the success of Kaiko’s debut of DEX data earlier this year, the company has expanded into lending and borrowing market data with the release of the new product. Market data is a valuable resource for any individual or company using or contemplating decentralized finance.
