Uphill Battle Of DeFi On Bitcoin Cash
Currently, the DeFi is experiencing an uphill battle on Bitcoin Cash platform because of the network effects of Ehtereum based projects.
The defiprime.com has mentioned that out of 213 DeFi projects listed on it, 199 are developed on Ethereum, with about 10 percent being supported by other platforms like Bitcoin (BTC), EOS or Tron (TRX).
In February 2020, the Defi market locked amount which reached an all-time high (ATH) of $1.24 billion in USD, but before that, it dropped to $887 million.
At that time the Lightning Network of Bitcoin locked $9.3 million.
In the year 2019, a common ERC-20 token was launched by Bitcoin Cash. The spin-off of Bitcoin used Simple Ledger Protocol (SLP) for releasing the token.
It is to be noted that SLP has created only 30 tokens till date, but it released the world’s largest stablecoin Tether on Bitcoin Cash.
