Introduction to Liquidity Nexus
The Orbs Liquidity Nexus introduces CeFi sourced liquidity to DeFi.
CeFi players are showing massive interest in the potential returns of DeFi. DeFi positions are thirsty for the boundless liquidity of the CeFi world. Orbs Liquidity Nexus is a decentralized protocol for facilitating the bridge between the two.
The Orbs Liquidity Nexus protocol is the first to introduce the concept of Single-sided farming.
Take any DEX, whether it’s SushiSwap or PancakeSwap, and choose a popular pool like ETH/USDC or BNB/BUSD.
The CeFi capital provides the stable side — USDC or BUSD. The DeFi capital provides the crypto side — ETH or BNB. Now, let them farm together.
Single-sided farming is explained in this 3-part blog post series:
