Curve Finance is gearing up to make waves in the world of forex trading. Comments from key figures hint at major developments ahead for integrating forex markets into Curve’s operations.
Well-known Twitter analyst and technical expert, Andrew Kang, teased the potential integration of forex markets within Curve Finance. His tweet, “Curve forex coming to a pool near you,” hinted at a significant development for the DeFi platform.
However, it was a series of comments from Michael Egorov, presumably in a private chat, that provided deeper insights into the upcoming shift. Egorov, who has ties with Curve, mentioned his association with Wintermute, emphasizing its efficiency in arbitraging Curve. “I did wintermute only because they arb Curve very well,” stated Egorov.
His intriguing statement about “spinning forex markets properly” raised eyebrows. When probed about how this approach might differentiate from Curve’s current volatile pools, Egorov revealed that arbitrage, often shortened to “arb”, remains integral to the proper functioning of Curve pools. Combining this arbitrage mechanism with “real low-fee forex markets” could potentially revolutionize the way the DeFi sector approaches forex.
The discussion didn’t stop there. Egorov was questioned about how this potential forex integration might stack up against existing on-chain venues for trading forex pairs and the traditional off-chain venues. Without mincing words, he expressed his view on the current state of on-chain venues and cryptoCEXes, terming them as “absolute shit for that”. He hinted at having “some alternative ideas,” yet strongly vouched for the power of decentralized exchanges arbitraging with traditional finance as the optimal path forward.
While it’s still early days, these revelations indicate a promising direction for Curve and the broader DeFi space. As the lines between traditional forex markets and decentralized financial systems begin to blur, industry enthusiasts will be closely watching Curve’s next moves.
