Three projects leading the way are Solana (SOL), Ethereum (ETH), and Collateral Network (COLT). Each project brings innovative ideas to the space and could significantly influence the future of DeFi.
Solana (SOL) has been making headlines for its huge returns in 2021, with daily trading volume surpassing half a billion USD.

Ethereum’s Shanghai Update
In 2023 Ethereum announced its Shanghai Update which addresses many issues currently faced by users. The biggest upgrade is the introduction of staking where users can withdraw their funds at any time along with their rewards earned during staking. This update could potentially push Ethereum’s value to new highs while also improving games such as Gods Unchained on its blockchain.
Collateral Network (COLT)
Collateral Network is a decentralized crowdlending platform using Cross-Chain protocols that allows borrowers to unlock cash from physical assets using NFTs. It offers an alternative solution for those looking for capital without having to go through conventional banking channels or giving up ownership of their assets.
