DeFi is the mainstream application for the Aptos ecosystem and can be divided into these fields: stablecoin, DEX, aggregator, IDO, lending and borrowing, asset management, derivatives and liquidity staking, etc.
In terms of stablecoins, Thala Labs (https://www.thalalabs.xyz/) is currently the most popular stablecoin project in the entire Aptos ecosystem. It will launch the over-collateralized stablecoin Move Dollar (MOD) and develop other products at the same time to boost the application of MOD on the Aptos blockchain.
Lending and borrowing
In terms of lending and borrowing, the following projects are being built in the Aptos ecosystem: Vial Protocol（https://www.vial.fi/）, Mobius（https://mobius.market/）, Njord Finance, Aptoslend, Ultima protocol and Aptin（https://app.aptin.io/）. Till now, products under tests of Vial Protocol, Aptin and Mobius have gone live.
The interaction of Vial Protocol is relatively simple, and its mode is almost the same as Compound, Aave, etc. Users can deposit and lend test tokens such as APT, BTC, USDC, etc. on the platform. APT can be directly claimed in the BitKeep wallet while BTC and USDC can be collected from the Faucet on the interface.
Mobius applies the same interaction method as Vial Protocol and it has been successfully deployed on the Aptos mainnet.
Aptin is a decentralized platform for lending and borrowing. It has been activated on devnet and testnet and its mainnet is to be launched after code verification. Users are able to easily borrow, lend and earn digital assets with the support of Aptos.
