The leading automated market maker (AMM) and decentralized exchange (DEX) liquidity pool, Curve Finance, launched Harmony Protocol. The integration will further Curve Finance growth and help it achieve its vision of creating deep on-chain liquidity.
Curve Finance doesn’t seem to be slowing down as the partnership boosts the decentralized finance protocol. With over USD 15 billion total value locked (TVL) in DeFi, Curve Finance is currently the most extensive protocol on DeFi.
Harmony Protocol, which announced the integration via its official Twitter handle, noted that the collaboration would benefit both platforms. According to the announcement, Curve Finance will leverage Harmony’s interoperability solutions to develop deep on-chain liquidity.
Harmony further revealed that the integration would enable Curve to utilize its bridges to Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain (BSC). This will essentially boost Curve Finance’s ability to support stablecoin swapping across multiple chains.

Meanwhile, in the first 12 hours of its launch on Harmony blockchain, Curve already recorded over USD 16 million TVL. According to Giv Parvaneh, a senior blockchain engineer at Harmony, the DEX platform recorded remarkable growth on its launch.
