Moonbeam has seen a huge spike since the beginning of its launch in January. DeFi projects have chosen Moonbeam as their launchpad to enter the Polkadot ecosystem, using its platform to redeploy Ethereum-based dApps to Polkadot.

However, none of the protocols are currently deployed on Moonbeam. Curve Finance is the largest DeFi protocol by TVL, with a surge of $19.65 billion in TVL across 8 blockchain networks.

Out of the $19.65 billion, over $16.93 billion is locked in Ethereum. The Curve's deployment on Moonbeam indicates that the broader Polkadot ecosystem will be able to access its value on Ethereum.

Polkadot’s high latency and low transaction costs can be a good alternative to Ethereum, which is frequently congested and always expensive.

Because of its unique approach to providing liquidity, the AMM platform has become the leader in the DeFi industry.

Unlike similar AMMs such as Uniswap and Balancer, Curve only offers liquidity pools comprised of assets that behave similarly, such as stablecoins or wrapped tokens.

This has enabled Curve to offer extremely low fees, very little slippage, and reduced risk of impermanent loss.
