Ethena: Crypto Project Set to Revolutionize Revenue Generation

According to José Maria Macedo, CEO of Delphi Labs and founding partner of crypto investment firm Delphi Ventures, Ethena Labs is set to become the highest revenue-generating cryptocurrency project in the market. Macedo expressed in a blog post that Ethena Labs is one of the most promising investments during this bullish period, stating that their synthetic dollar, sUSDe, will offer the highest yield in the crypto market and will become the largest stablecoin outside of USDC and USDT by 2024. Ethena Labs achieved the status of the highest-earning decentralized application (DApp) in crypto on March 8 by offering a 67% annual percentage yield (APY) on USDe, its synthetic dollar.

Ethena Labs officially launched their USDe synthetic dollar on the public mainnet on February 19, and it currently provides a 35.4% APY to over 118,000 users. The optimistic predictions made by the CEO were further supported by the recent launch of the Ethena Labs airdrop on April 2, where $450 million worth of ENA tokens were distributed to eligible wallets. According to data from Arkham Intelligence, the largest recipient of the airdrop received almost $2 million worth of ENA tokens.

With a market capitalization of $1.9 billion, the USDe synthetic dollar is currently ranked as the seventh-largest stablecoin, according to CoinMarketCap. In order to surpass the third-largest stablecoin, Dai (DAI), the market cap of USDe would need to increase by at least 178% to reach over $5.3 billion. The market cap of USDe has experienced significant growth, rising by over 21% in the past day and 165% in the past month to reach $1.89 billion, according to DefiLlama data.

Macedo believes that Ethena Labs has introduced a unique and competitive offering to the stablecoin market, which is valued at $100 billion. They see USDe as the most scalable fully collateralized stablecoin ever created, although it is not fully decentralized. Macedo acknowledges this tradeoff but still sees great potential for Ethena Labs in the stablecoin market.

Ethena Labs is expected to become the highest revenue-generating cryptocurrency project in the market, according to José Maria Macedo. Their USDe synthetic dollar has already achieved significant success, becoming the highest-earning DApp in crypto, and currently offers a competitive APY to over 118,000 users. With its recent airdrop and continued growth in market capitalization, Ethena Labs aims to become one of the top stablecoins in the industry by 2024. Despite its decentralized limitations, Delphi’s Macedo believes that USDe is the most scalable fully collateralized stablecoin ever created, positioning Ethena Labs for future growth in the stablecoin market.
