Ren has seen some remarkable developments such as it is time to take another close look at this exciting DeFi project. Formerly known as the Republic Protocol, Ren has evolved to become an ecosystem which seeks to bring unparalleled privacy and interoperable liquidity between blockchains. Ren makes it possible for you to transfer cryptocurrencies and other supported assets (like tokens) between blockchains in a manner that is decentralized, trustless, and fast. The history of Ren starts with its two founders: Taiyang Zhang and Loong Wang (pronounced “Lewng”). They were classmates at the Australian National University and worked together at the same start up after they graduated. While working at Virgil Capital, Zhang noticed that there was a lack of support for over the counter (OTC) cryptocurrency trading. More importantly, there was absolutely no way for investors to purchase a large amount of cryptocurrency without disrupting markets.This is because all transactions are publicly available on the blockchain, including OTC purchases. Automated applications such as Whale Alert draw attention to these large transactions, resulting in price volatility from speculative traders. OTC trading is almost exclusively for wealthy investors looking to buy an asset without making a scene. Digital cryptocurrency wallets which support REN include My Ether Wallet (MEW – desktop), Atomic Wallet (mobile), Trust Wallet (mobile), and the Exodus wallet (mobile and desktop). Hardware cryptocurrency wallets which support REN include Ledger, Trezor, and KeepKey. Although REN has limited exchange support, you can find it on notable exchanges such as Binance and Huobi with good liquidity. The Achilles heel of cryptocurrency is the first impression its various platforms and technologies give to the average person. For most, regular cryptocurrency trading interphases are overwhelming enough.Even transferring currencies to and from wallets can likewise be a burden to newbies. To see the value in Ren’s technology requires a level of understanding about crypto trading which a very small percentage of people have, even within the cryptocurrency space. The price of any asset within the cryptocurrency space will ultimately be determined by what that cryptocurrency actually does.

For the next section, we invited Carolyn Reckhow, the Head of Business Strategy of KEEP to share her thoughts on DeFi. KEEP is one of the three projects contributing to tBTC and allows Bitcoin holders to use Ethereum decentralized finance applications for the first time. The team at KEEP has thought hard about how to provide true randomness, and therefore trustlessness. The random beacon is designed as an engine that can power many apps addressing many different use cases. In tBTC, it provides the key component that ensures users’ BTC is safe when deposited — that they can trust the system without having to trust middlemen, because there are no middlemen.
