SUMMARY
  • While the market seems to have shrugged it off, crypto – and DeFi in particular – survived an existential risk over the weekend.
  • USDC was caught up in the turmoil that hit U.S. banks and depegged amidst fears it was no longer fully backed.
  • We covered the reaction in centralized markets in the week’s Debrief, but given that USDC’s primary use case is in DeFi, this week we’ll examine how the depegging played out on-chain, examining trading, liquidity, and lending and borrowing, with a particular focus on the role that bots played.
