Acala Network, Polkadot's MakerDAO, Comes to Ethereum

THELOGICALINDIAN - DeFi interoperability is afterpiece than anytime and Polkadot is arch the charge

Acala Network, one of the aboriginal few DeFi projects on Polkadot, revealed it’s blockchain now supports the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). With this integration, assets on Acala will be advisedly interoperable with the additional best aqueous blockchain in crypto.

Polkadot’s Pursuit of DeFi

No blockchain can currently bout the admeasurement of DeFi applications on Ethereum. But the acceleration of the interoperability anecdotal is giving life to DeFi on added blockchains.

Acala Network is a collateral-backed stablecoin issuer. The protocol’s mechanics resemble that of MakerDAO. Acala today appear its parachain supports the EVM, Ethereum’s runtime arrangement for acute contracts.

This development agency aggregate that happens on Acala can be confused assimilate Ethereum and aback to Acala. A simple archetype ability be to drop accessory in Acala, accept the protocol’s built-in aUSD stablecoin, accelerate it to Ethereum, and buy an ERC-20 badge with it on Uniswap.

For this to be successful, however, Acala needs to body clamminess for its badge on Ethereum as well.

This seems to be a common narrative amid the beginning DeFi ecosystems of Solana and Polkadot. Projects on these chains admit the charge to affix with Ethereum to advance clamminess dApps like Uniswap, Aave, and Synthetix.

SnowFork is attempting to body a absolutely arguable arch amid Ethereum and Polkadot’s parachains. This wouldn’t be bound to asset transfers but would acquiesce data, derivatives, and added banking articles to move up and bottomward amid the two ecosystems.

On the added hand, Cosmos’ DeFi seems to be actively alienated Ethereum. Kava is addition MakerDAO-like stablecoin issuer congenital on Cosmos. But it’s advancing advance differently. Rather than borer into Ethereum, Kava has abhorred the arch acute arrangement belvedere appropriately far.

Instead, Kava is integrating assets like BTC, BNB, and XRP. These are assets whose holders may admiration non-custodial loans but accept no way to admission such a service. 

It’s a different approach, and alone time will acquaint whether this will additionally succeed. There’s absolutely allowance for all of these protocols to abound together.
