ICYMI: Week 4 updates from Maple Finance
Here is our ICYMI update from Week 4 2022. We listed with Coinbase, Huobi and more, launched Loans V2, tweeted Elon Musk, and hosted our first community call of the year.
MPL started trading on Coinbase and Huobi on Wednesday in MPL-USD and MPL-USDT pair respectively, a great vote for DeFi from CEXs and boost for liquidity of the token.
