Het DeFi-protocol van Jeff Garzik, Vesper Finance, staat in zes weken tijd boven de $ 1 miljard TVL

Vesper Finance, a recently launched DeFI yield suite co-founded by former Bitcoin core developer Jeff Garzik, has surpassed a TVL of $1 billion within six weeks of launching on mainnet.

Garzik, also an executive of blockchain technology firm Bloq Inc, tweeted the news on March 23 while also revealing the team had open-sourced its smart contracts. Vesper’s CEO also noted the protocol’s open source transferable NFT container can be used to package, transfer and auction any amount of non-fungible tokens and ERC-20s.

The protocol has seen spectacular growth since amassing $25 million during its Beta, which ran from Dec. 22 tot feb. 17. By March 9, Vesper’s total value locked had ballooned to $500 miljoen, before doubling over the past fortnight.

According to decentralized finance analytics provider DeFi Llama, Vesper currently ranks as the 15th-largest protocol with a TVL of $1.09 billion — sitting above Badger DAO and behind Autofarm.

The platform currently offers five single-asset pools, offering yields to investors who deposit DAI, USDC, ETH, WBTC, or Vesper’s native token, VSP. Rewards are also offered to depositors in the form of VSP for most assets.

The WBTC vault is currently the most popular pool with nearly $420 miljoen op slot, followed by ETH with $382 miljoen, USDC with roughly $222 miljoen, and VSP with $72 miljoen. Enkel en alleen $259,074 has been deposited into the DAI pool.

All of Vesper’s current pools are described as being at a “conservative” risk level, with the team indicating pools offering higher risk profiles will be launched in future.

Vesper Finance was also co-founded by billionaire investor and Bloq, Inc co-founder, Matthew Roszak, and Bloq, Inc head of DeFi, Jordan Kruger.
