Wondering what we accomplished in the (seemingly) longest month of the year?

Well, wonder no more… we will quickly update you on how Reef is moving the DeFi ecosystem forward and making it approachable to all.

Avalanche, our first partnership of the year, and it sure felt like it when we released the news about our collaboration! This month we integrated with some of the most interesting projects in our evolving ecosystem.



Avalanche is an interoperable, highly scalable, open-source platform for designing dApps and enterprise blockchains. The Reef x Avalanche partnership allows our users to access DeFi activities on Avalanche directly through Reef’s platform and unites two DeFi ecosystems. Moreover, $AVAX affiliated tokens will be included in Reef’s baskets and our users will be able to channel capital into $AVAX, to maximize savings & earn higher interest.

OpenDeFi allows users to invest in real-world assets (like Gold), use their assets as collateral for loans, or earn a rental on their assets, all via on-chain synthetics. This partnership enables investments in real-world assets powered by OpenDeFi through Reef Finance. Moreover, it empowers Reef to provide its users the opportunity to invest in this rapidly growing segment of DeFi markets, serving as the on-in-all portal into the DeFi world.

bZx Protocol

bZx is an ethereum-based decentralized platform that offers various DeFi applications, such as shorting, leverage, borrowing, and lending, through its Fulcrum and Torque platforms. This partnership allows Reef users to access various leveraged baskets through bZx, and the bZx farming pool will also be added to Reef’s AI and Machine Learning powered analytics engine.

Unifi Protocol

Unifi Protocol is a suite of non-custodial, interoperable, decentralized, and multi-chain smart contracts, which are being used to build the next generation DeFi products. This partnership will allow Reef users to access Unifi’s liquidity pools through the Reef platform itself and utilize the yield generating opportunities available there.

Manta Network

Manta is a Privacy-First DeFi platform that is building a cross-chain, privacy-preserving, price-stable DEX based on Substrate. Through this partnership, Reef will provide its users access to liquidity from the Manta Network DEX. Manta is leveraging Polkadot’s parachain architecture to bring interoperability to the Manta DEX. This will allow Manta to support any parachain assets on their interface, bringing a tremendous opportunity for growth in the Manta ecosystem.
