Ethereum Classic Jumps Into DeFi With Fantom Partnership, But Only as Collateral

Summary (IA Generated)

ETC Labs and Fantom Foundation are collaborating to bring decentralized finance (DeFi) to Fantom’s ecosystem, a Feb. 10 press release announced. Ethereum Classic (ETC) will serve as collateral for issuing a stablecoin similar to Maker’s DAI on the Fantom platform.Fantom will be using the Xar Network, a DeFi framework specifically developed for the project. The framework uses some of Fantom’s Byzantine Fault Tolerant (BFT) consensus technologies, such as Lachesis and TxFlow, to offer a blockchain environment that supports advanced DeFi options. The system allows collateralized loans, synthetic assets, atomic swaps and is interoperable with external blockchains such as Ethereum and Binance Chain. Ethereum Classic will only function as collateral on the Fantom platform. […] Though Ethereum Classic could in theory host DeFi platforms as well, its role appears to be relegated to that of collateral asset.
