Ethena (ENA) Labs Integrates with Major Exchanges for Reward Program

Recently, Ethena Labs, a company that specialises in the development of synthetic dollars, made an announcement on its integration with major centralised exchange wallets such as Binance, Bybit, OKX, and Bitget. The purpose of this integration is to make it easier for users to participate in Ethena's rewards programme and to increase the platform's popularity among members of the decentralised finance (DeFi) community.

Ethena Labs is providing a reward increase of twenty percent to customers that lock their USDe stablecoins for a period of seven days or more using exchange Web3 wallets. This is done as an incentive for users. At the conclusion of each campaign, these incentives, which are referred to as "Ethena sats," have the potential to be turned into the native ENA token of the system. Through the integration of well-known exchange wallets, Ethena Labs intends to simplify the process by which users may take part in the rewards programme and gain extra advantages.

In the present moment, the Ethena DeFi protocol has a total value locked (TVL) of $2.274 billion, which results in an annualised income of $178 million. Since the start of Ethena Staking Season 2, the incentives that are offered by the protocol's ecosystem have garnered a large amount of interest and applications. Lookingonchain, a company that specialises in blockchain analytics, reports that the top 10 wallets have staked 37.5 million ENA, which is equivalent to 51 million United States dollars.

Shortly after its inception, Ethena's USDe stablecoin has swiftly become the fifth-largest stablecoin in the market. This is a testament to the rapid growth of the USDe stablecoin. In the beginning, the system provided a high annual percentage yield (APY) of 67%; however, at the present time, it offers an APY of 24% on stablecoins. Concerns have been expressed, however, about the mechanism's potential to continue operating in the long term. Guy Young, the inventor of Ethena, has addressed these issues by underlining the fact that the yields of the protocol are organic and sustainable. These yields are obtained from a variety of sources, including Ethereum incentives, execution fees, and trading profits.

Ethena's popularity and use within the DeFi community are anticipated to increase even more as a result of its integration with big centralised exchange wallets. Ethena Labs's goal is to raise the total value locked in the protocol by increasing the number of users who participate in the rewards programme by making the process of participating in the programme easier.
