One of the first credible defi sites I looked at was celcius. They gave me a 2 cent token one time just for opening the wallet. I tried it a second time and no more tokens. Now I have around 1.07 tokens worth around $7 I remember looking at buying $100 worth and not doing it because the credit card fees were obnoxious. To make a long story short I would be sitting on $300,000 of celcius right now.
Off the topic a little bit could be a good place to deposit your eth if you would like to get interest off of it (I love kucoin by the way but I personally am adding to a position). Join Celsius Network using my referral code 1010547c0d when signing up and earn $40 in BTC with your first transfer of $400 or more!
Crypto.com is another cefi app with a coin. They had a steep rise and then combined the two tokens into one. Had a steep fall because one of the card issuers went under. I personally had a problem with some of the features of the app at this time since then the price has rebound nicely. Also a good place to deposit coins from publish0x if you have that sort of patience. Cash out into their coin with very small fees and onto the card. I had put some of my bag there. Use my referral link
https//crypto.com/app/jwdsryp7mk to sign up for Crypto.com and we both get $25 USD :)
On Tron they had an announcement of an airdrop of jst. It was sorta like dai coin. The jst coin is the management coin of the Tron dollar. $100 of Tron got you 1 cent of jst and then it climbed to around 25 cents. The first announcement of defi then was a great time to buy Tron and then buy jst.
You would think that the second defi coin sun would be more exciting because it's a defi app. From the lowest point to the highest point it is bairly 100% cap gains. They are currently attracting money to the app with a grab bag but the rates of crashed on what are speculative coins paid out over 24 weeks. Jst and sun are their along with btt and gambling app win. I personally moved my Tron coins out but no one else will pay for jst so those remain. Could be an chance to buy sun coins using the crypto.com guide of misshap as a way to help guess the bottom.
With eth prices high now is the time to start deploying on different chains. Some of the app coins you got from coinbase and publish0x exc are worth keeping but they are not your 100x coins.
It's worth watching the cro chain because they will deploy smart contracts and probably send defi coins you already have up. Cardano would be a great one to have and hold in the wallet. Not your keys not your airdrop. Use that to scan for airdrops. Maybe for but I don't know to much on that one. Maybe some bsv believe it or not they are starting to get apps on it. Possibly stuff that was originally theorised in past versions of Bitcoin. I am currently open to suggestions for coins that are getting ready or have smart contracts that have not announced defi yet if you know of any let me know in the comments.
