On Fireblocks, an enterprise platform to manage digital asset operations and create cutting-edge enterprises on the blockchain, Kava Chain, a decentralized Cosmos-Ethereum interoperable Layer 1 blockchain, is now accessible. Customers of Fireblocks will be able to access the burgeoning Cosmos DeFi ecosystem via the Kava Chain with the help of the integration safely and securely.
“With the integration of Kava Chain onto the Fireblocks Network, we’re excited to bring Kava’s innovative suite of DeFi app protocols and Cosmos DeFi access to our customers,” said Idan Ofrat, Co-founder and Chief Product Officer at Fireblocks. “In the past year, we have seen growing institutional interest in DeFi. Fireblocks’ defense-in-depth security and customizable Transaction Authorization Policy (TAP) allow our customers to safely explore and innovate in the DeFi arena without compromising their compliance and security requirements. We look forward to unlocking more opportunities for our customers in the future.”
Through the bear market, the Kava Chain has been gradually accumulating and increasing. Top-tier crypto institutions have not, however, been able to interact with the dApps on-chain without a solid connection to an MPC (multi-party computation) custody technology supplier. More than 1,800 top digital asset and cryptocurrency institutions can now hold KAVA tokens and access Kava-native assets, including Cosmos-native USDt, which Tether chose to be issued solely on the Kava Chain, thanks to the Fireblocks interface.
Along with improving institutional access to Kava, this integration also enables customers of Fireblocks to:
- Participate in DeFi opportunities on Kava ecosystem platforms, including Curve, Kinetix, and Hover.
- Use USDt, a native of Cosmos, to take part in market-making on significant exchanges.
- Examine fresh USDt DeFi possibilities on well-known Cosmos appchains.
“Kava Chain’s role in arbitrage market making is becoming increasingly significant. With the Fireblocks integration, centralized exchanges (CEXs) and major market makers have a more capital-efficient option for cross-chain arbitrage,” said Scott Stuart, Co-founder of Kava Chain. “Instead of incurring high gas fees on Ethereum, they can now utilize Kava to transfer USDt between ecosystems efficiently. We’re excited about the future and the value this integration brings to our community!”
