This Week: Vesper Delivers Talk at the Avalanche Summit in Barcelona

All-things-DeFi in Barcelona
ICYMI: Vesper presented at the inaugural Avalanche Summit Barcelona!
Vesper Takes Center Stage
Co-founder Jordan Kruger delivered a keynote on the current state and future opportunities for DeFi. She also discussed the importance of synthetics in DeFi and the limitations of the offerings available today — stay tuned for more!
Catch some of the highlights below!
Conferences, Connections and Crypto
Beyond the keynote, much of Vesper’s time on-the-ground focused on building connections with leading protocols and operators within the DeFi ecosystem.
Conversations ranged from opportunities to forge mutually beneficial collaborations with fellow platforms — to opportunities to implement tooling to up-level Vesper’s current offerings.
When it comes to connections, Product Designer Nayat Cheikh said it best:
“Crypto conferences tend to have great positive energy in the air, lots of fresh innovative projects to know about and talks to learn from. Avalanche Summit was all of that and more — a perfectly organized conference down to the smallest detail where I’ve had the opportunity to meet teams that are doing great things.”
…and what’s a crypto conference without some rare IRL bonding across a highly distributed team?

SushiSwap LP users are now included in a monthly rewards program. VSP rewards are available on Pure Finance. Id Claim: 54.
Reward refills are underway. An increasing number of reward destinations has added latency to this process. Vesper’s engineers are working to automate this process going forward. For this month, expect rewards for pools to continue no later than Monday morning.
Pool rewards for this month are distributed as follows:
12,500 VSP for top-performing pools:
