    The quest for liquidity among protocols has been one of the major concerns for every crypto startup.

    Over the course of 2022, DeFi has matured. We believe this process will continue and accelerate further with yield primitives playing a significant role. Yield Derivatives are an old acquaintance of the financial world. If appropriate protocols succeed in creating meaningful use cases, they could not just enrich the toolkit of experienced DeFi users but also provide DeFi’s master key for mass adoption of TradFi professionals and institutional money. In addition, the DeFi thesis is as strong as ever given the multiple failures of centralized entities over the course of 2022. This is why we’ve been leading the recent USD 2.5 million seed extension round of the DeFi protocol APWine.

    You have probably heard of celebrities spending huge on a Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT and seen them flexing it as their profile picture (2D avatar) on social media to represent their digital identity. Snoop Dogg and Eminem even took a further leap and morphed into their BAYC 3D avatars in a new music video. These are signs that in the future a new wave of content creators will express their creativity through avatars. In this post, we will elaborate on how Profile Picture NFTs (PFPs) used as avatars will play a key role in this development. We will further propose a typology for avatar design and identity options.
