According to Trader Joe, the lending product will make it the first platform to offer a “fully-fledged, in-house DEX and Lending protocol” on the Avalanche ecosystem. The DEX also revealed future plans for leveraged trading, derivatives and limit orders.
To secure the price feeds from Banker Joe, the DEX revealed it had partnered with Chainlink to ensure that all data was accurate and lending pool positions were better managed.
The launch of Banker Joe comes a week after Aave launched on Avalanche and kickstarted Avalanche Rush. A week after its October 4 launch, Aave now secures $1.8b in assets on Avalanche and has propelled the ‘total value locked’ (TVL) across the entire ecosystem to more than $5.4b.
According to data from DeFiLlama, Trader Joe now sits second in the TVL rankings behind Aave and has overtaken fellow lending product BENQI.
Trader Joe Co-founder 0xMurloc commented on the importance of Banker Joe to the growth of the platform.
“Banker Joe is an essential step towards our vision of turning Trader Joe into a one-stop-shop DeFi trading platform,” he said.
