Ahead of the Curve#005

In governance...

Since our last newsletter, the stETH pool has been added to the protocol. This pool will be incentivised by CRV from Thursday and will also receive LDO, the governance token for Lido which will also distribute Ethereum2.0 staking rewards to the pool.

The team is currently working on finalising cross-asset swaps, a new type of swap using Curve and Synthetix as a bridge. Those swaps will let traders trade between different Curve assets as long as they share a pool with a Synth (like sUSD, sEUR, sBTC and sETH). It will open routes that are currently difficult to trade like Euro trades for example. It is currently under audit.

And finally, Curve is celebrating its first birthday today as we're closing in $2b in TVL.
