In today’s DeFi and NFT daily bits, we take a look at some of the interesting developments in the industry over the past couple of days.
PolkaStarter Unveils Startup Incubator: Names Maiden Project

WowSwap Release NFT Leverage Trading Protocol
- WowSwap releases its NFT leverage trading protocol. Offering 5X on punks, Glyphs, BAYC, and more; WowSwap utilizes NFTX’s tokenized NFTs to make these trades
- WowSwap is another protocol that brings more innovation into DeFi and NFTs. Lots of projects for the last 6 months have followed a safe playbook, but we like to see novel projects go out on a limb, and WowSwap is one of these projects
xDEFI Wallet Secures $6 Million in Funding
- xDeFi has secured $6 million in investor funding from names like Alameda, Sino, and CG. xDeFi is a cross chain web3.0 wallet that is interoperable with EVM compatible and nonEVM compatible chains like $BTC and $LTC
- This cross-chain narrative is one that we have been keen on, and we are not surprised the team behind xDefi were able to secure funding from such prestigious names. Going forward, we expect these wallets to grow as Metamask losses its dominance.
