Highlights

  • DeFi aggregator Enzyme Finance protocol’s MLN crypto’s trade volume has gained sharply
  • The protocol has tweeted that MLN has no links with Terra, which may be the reason behind this rise in activity
  • MLN token year-to-date (YTD) is in negative territory, similar to assets like ETH, BTC, and DOGE

The cryptoverse was badly hit recently when stablecoin TerraUSD lost its peg with the US dollar. This led to decline in even other cryptos, which are independent of the LUNA ecosystem.

One crypto, Enzyme Finance’s MLN token, had to convince enthusiasts that it is not related to Terra in any respect. Enzyme, a decentralized finance (DeFi) player with services like “vault strategy”, is not a high cap crypto like DOGE or SHIB. But MLN token has risen sharply of late. Let’s know more.

What is Enzyme Finance DeFi?

DeFi is said to be an emerging fintech service. Here, crypto holders can deposit their tokens to generate ‘passive income’. Enzyme Finance claims to be an aggregator of protocols that provide such borrowing and lending services to crypto users. These include AAVE, Compound, and Uniswap.

Enzyme states it can be used by decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) to manage treasury. Vault strategy is a facility, which Enzyme says connects a vault manager with depositors. Anyone can be a vault creator, it is claimed, and depositors can select a vault strategy that appears to be the best.

Enzyme also mentions yield farming, asset swapping, and derivatives on its website.

What is MLN token?

MLN is native to Enzyme Finance protocol. According to CoinMarketCap, over two million MLN coins were in circulation at the time of writing.

MLN token trades on such exchanges as Binance, KuCoin, and OKX. The project has announced that it has no links to Terra Luna ecosystem.

Bottom line

The loss of value of TerraUSD stablecoin seems to have had a very bad impact on the wider cryptoverse. Recently, MLN token’s Enzyme Finance protocol tweeted that it is not linked to Terra. MLN token has lost in 2022, but over the past 24 hours, MLN’s trade volume and price have both seen an uptick. The protocol claims DeFi aggregation and vault strategy services. MLN is among top 500 assets.
