In February 2019, the IOST team began by developing a reliable DeFi ecosystem base with a crystal goal of building the first public chain with in-built DeFi support. By March 2019, they had optimized IOST decentralized staking mechanism which paved the way for more DeFi experiences. In April 2019, they launched the iUSD and struck a strategic partnership with Force protocol to further enrich on-chain application scenarios. Soon after, the first DEX was launched in May 2019. Of note, IOST forwarded grants to Singapore’s government authority for the creation of interoperability solutions. Learn more about IOST DeFi expansion in the article.
