“$AAVE short liquidatons about to kick in. Pump it $55.”


Institutional capital in the DeFi market

With the strong surge in AAVE’s price and the uptick of total value locked in the DeFi industry, many have speculated that institutional capital has been slowly being deployed in the market.

An analyst at Messari, Mason Nystrom, recently noted that Jump Trading, a Wall Street giant has recently been holding more than $75 million in cryptocurrencies.

The company has invested the most heavily in Serum.
