DeFi.org program mentors choose Ithil, Prophet, CURL and reBaked

The largest Ethereum scaling solution, Polygon, chose four program participants from a vast pool of applications for their DeFi Accelerator Program. The program will provide funding opportunities, mentorship and market exposure to chosen projects. 

It is mandatory for Ithil, Prophet, CURL and reBaked to build on the Polygon ecosystem, or use Orbs infrastructure. These four projects will receive a liquidity injection on various platforms during launch, including the DeFi.org website. 

The combination of L1/L2 on Polygon and L3 on Orbs offer an exciting opportunity for new and innovative applications to develop. 


Ithil is a novel DeFi protocol that offers users exposure in selected protocols with borrowed funds. The project stands out for its modular structure to empower users and protocols. Prophet is a marketplace where users can trade and gain exposure to automated trading strategies. 

CURL is a protocol that concentrates liquidity on L2 networks. reBaked offers a set of governance, management, and operations tools for DAOs and Web 3.0 ecosystems to better distribute and manage their treasuries – focusing on value creation.

MATIC eyes $1 target

Analysts at FXStreet believe MATIC price is on track to hit the $1 target. A push of MATIC into the zone between $0.48 to $0.54 would invalidate the bullish thesis. MATIC price attempted to ascend to the upper trend targets consistently in previous price rallies. 

A pullback into the $0.60 region is likely, and it could result in a drop to $0.54. Tony M, a leading crypto analyst argues that there is a 13-1 reward-to-risk setup, one of the best in the crypto season.
