Today the total value locked in DeFi has reached $52B, but many would argue that institutional capital hasn’t arrived yet. Interacting with DeFi brings a variety of regulatory and operational challenges that make it difficult for institutions to participate. On the other hand we’ve seen a massive influx of interest in Bitcoin this year from banks, corporations, funds and a variety of other financial institutions. With the right on-ramps, institutional investors could put that Bitcoin to work and usher in the next big wave of capital into DeFi.

They say “good things come to those who wait”. While true, we’d add that “good things come to Badgers who are loyal”.

The “DeFi Benchmark” Bitcoin Interest Rate
Have you ever wondered why there isn’t a widely used interest bearing tokenized Bitcoin for DeFi? Liquidity of tokenized BTC on Ethereum is spread across different flavors — namely: wBTC, renBTC, tBTC & sBTC.
The Vision behind ibBTC is to bundle these “flavors” together and build a yUSD-equivalent for BTC that would become the default BTC denominated asset on Ethereum — while also enabling users to stack their sats!
Badger Setts are the first liquidity pools being leveraged to mint ibBTC. We will be able to add other pools in the future. …
A common Badger catchphrase is “Never stop building.” And it rings true now more than ever. In partnership with DeFi powered gaming platform Cometh, we are launching a new collection consisting of four unique Badger-themed NFT spaceships. One of them is slated to go up for auction this Thursday, March 25th with the others to follow on Friday, March 26th.
Cometh is a DeFi-powered spaceship game that requires users to leverage yield generating NFTs or “spaceships” to mine tokens that can then be used throughout the DeFi ecosystem.
With Cometh spaceships, you can explore the galaxy and earn tokens. Cometh…
Badger is the trusted place to put your Bitcoin to work- on all chains. The Badger DAO expands on this vision every day, with the influx of new builders, ambassadors, and an incubation program to fund and foster emerging Bitcoin-DeFi products.
Ethereum has been the birthplace of many DeFi projects that have advanced open finance by leaps and bounds. But the Badger DAO was never intended to be exclusive to any particular chain. Badgers build for Bitcoin, bottom line. The DAO will extend support to any chain that bolsters itself as a sandbox for new products for Bitcoiners.
Tl;dr: A new game from BadgerDAO and MEME. Anyone can play, those with the strongest hands win.
BadgerDAO has always been about games. After all, Bitcoin itself is a massive money game with different participants locked in a never ending battle to secure and drive the network. In the most gamified experience to date Badger DAO has partnered once again with the MEME team to launch the Honeypot part II: Diamond Hands.
In Honeypot part I players staked bBADGER or BADGER UNI LP tokens to farm any of 6 NFTs. The first to collect all 6 NFTs was able to…

The Grants Round is active until March…
