Since its launch on Jan. 11, YuzuSwap, the first decentralized exchange on the Oasis Network, has witnessed tremendous adoption, indicating a growing need for decentralized finance protocols.
YuzuSwap achieved a total value locked (TVL) of $100 million in its first 24 operating hours, according to the exchange. Over a 24-hour period, trading volumes hit $323 million. The entire value of assets staked on decentralized protocols is referred to as TVL in DeFi.
YuzuSwap was created with a smart contract ecosystem that is perfectly interoperable with the Ethereum Virtual Machine, Emerald by Oasis Network. The DEX makes use of a peer-to-peer automated market maker by aiming low-cost token swaps offerings on Ethereum and within the Oasis ecosystem, and token and NFTs asset trades from six other blockchains through the Oasis Network.
YuzuSwap debuted on the same day that Binance Labs, the crypto exchange’s venture capital arm, announced its investment in Oasis Network’s $200 million developer fund. The Oasis Ecosystem Fund, which is funded by Hashed, Jump Capital, and Dragonfly Capital, among others, was created to help enterprises built on the Oasis Network get off the ground.

The involvement of Binance Labs resulted in positivity and a significant increase in the value of ROSE, the native cryptocurrency of Oasis Network. ROSE has gained 14.2% in the last 24 hours and was last seen trading above $0.49. According to data from TradingView, the coin has gained more than 43% in the last two weeks and 67% in the last month.
