Butane Protocol raised 49.5M ADA

What is Butane?

Butane is a synthetic assets protocol built on the Cardano blockchain, which leverages the power of Plutus smart contracts written in Aiken. The platform introduces seamless and composable creation and trade of synthetic assets that accurately reflect the price of real-world commodities, currencies, and more.

Some of Butane’s novel features include action composability, adjustable multi-collateral debt positions and seamless risk-management tooling, allowing users to engage with the global markets in a secure and decentralized manner

Public Sale

The eagerly anticipated public sale of the Butane token ($BTN) took place on February 23rd, drawing significant attention within the Cardano community. $BTN, having raised 49,500,000 ADA, with a refund of 80%, so effectively raising 10,000,000 ADA to grow the protocol.

Why it is a HUGE milestone for Cardano

The completion of Butane's public sale, with a staggering 49,500,500 ADA raised, represents a monumental achievement in Cardano's funding landscape. This substantial investment underscores the confidence and enthusiasm of the Cardano community in supporting innovative DeFi projects. It not only highlights the robust financial backing within the ecosystem but also sets a new benchmark for future funding endeavors on the Cardano blockchain. This influx of funds is poised to accelerate the development and expansion of Butane, further enriching Cardano's DeFi ecosystem and its capabilities. Such a milestone is a clear indicator of Cardano's growing influence and potential in reshaping the future of decentralized finance.


Introduction of $LEVVY Token by Levvy Finance

$LEVVY Finance

Levvy Finance, a known Cardano Lending Platform, recently announced the introduction of their new token, $LEVVY. This move has sparked a considerable amount of discussion and controversy among the Cardano community.

Controversy and Community Response

The announcement of $LEVVY has caught the attention of the Cardano community, leading to mixed reactions. Some members of the community are excited about the potential for growth that $LEVVY represents. Others, however, have raised concerns about the implications of introducing new tokens to the ecosystem, questioning the necessity of a new token.

It's not my job to tell you if this was the right move; time will tell. I wish the team and users the best of luck. Read more
