Wombat is a multi-chain stableswap backed by Binance Labs, native on BNB Chain. Its innovative single-sided pool design allows users to swap stablecoins at minimal slippage and stake at maximum yield.

Trust and understanding of DeFi are crucial, especially in the bear market. It is the best time to equip yourself with knowledge and be prepared for the future. Wombat is trying their best to share knowledge with the users to understand the complexity, risk, and beauty of DeFi. They are seeing huge growth in adoption. As rapidly as it grows, many retail users still find DeFi hard to use.

Merge Go-Ethereum V1.10.15

BNBChain upgraded the code base of Go-Ethereum from v1.10.3 to v1.10.15. A lot of new features, bug fixes, library upgrades, as well as some breaking changes from Go-Ethereum are merged to BSC v1.1.12.

BNB Beacon Chain Mainnet Godel Upgrade

Bnb Chain Weekly Recap Week 34 (18/8 - 24/08) - 7

A hard fork update for the BNB Beacon Chain Mainnet is anticipated to occur at block height 264,000,000. According to the current rate of block generation, the hard fork is anticipated to take place on September 2 at 6:00. (UTC).

Following the upgrade, DEX functionality will no longer be available on BNB Beacon Chain but will still be present on BNB Smart Chain. This will enable the BNB Beacon Chain to leverage additional processing capacity to increase future computing and governance emphasis on security.

What will change for the users?

The effect on regular DEX users is that they will no longer be able to list new trading pairs on DEX or place new orders there. Existing orders that have not yet been matched will no longer be matched. They can be terminated by the traders themselves or automatically time out after 3 days (or 30 days for orders in the best 500 price levels, under BEP-67), and the traders will receive a reimbursement.
