It started as an NFT project and evolved significantly, addressing gaps between liquidity and security in the DeFi ecosystem. The platform is designed to defragment liquidity, turbocharge applications, and ensure high accessibility by being interoperable and modular, making it a unique addition to the blockchain and DeFi spaces.

There is also a lot of growth happening on Berachain. They had more than 70 ecological projects in January 2024. Recently, Berachain has also partnered with cross-chain protocol LayerZero and NFT project Pudgy Penguin, two large players in the space. As of Q1, Berachain has a total of $250M in TCVL (total committed volume locked) and is expected to launch Mainnet in Q2 of 2024.
