But before we dive into the details, let’s have an overview of the DeFi League Steering Committee and why its launch on BNBChain launch has got the blockchain world going agog.

What is the DeFi League Steering Committee?

In February 2022, the BNB Chain team issued a statement via twitter to announce the launch of the DeFi League Steering Committee (DLSC), a star studded team of prominent projects with a unified focus to find effective solutions to some of the far-reaching problems that are rife in the blockchain sector.

Despite the rapid growth to over $3 trillion in value and 300 million global users, the blockchain sector has been riddled with many challenges over the years. Some of the most prevalent challenges include;

  • Security Lapses
  • Scalability
  • User-friendly Interoperability
  • Developer support
  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Sustainable Energy

These problems have placed limitations on the growth rate and the mainstream adoption.

Binance-led blockchain, BNB chain has moved to solve this panacea by convening a team of proven innovators, thought leaders and key industry players to collaborate towards creating interoperable solutions and building the infrastructure required to handle the future volume of users, data, and blockchain assets.

This star-studded task force, consisting of a diverse team of Industry leaders has been tagged the BNB DeFi League Steering Committee. (BNB — DLSC). In succinct terms, the BNB-DLSC is a group of founding projects joining forces to establish the wider DeFi League organization. The Members represent some of the world’s most innovative projects who have made significant contributions towards creating a multi-chain future in DeFi.

The founding members of the BNB-DLSC include: PancakeSwap, LayerZero, NodeReal, MCDEX, DODO, Venus, Deri Protocol, Tranchess, Celer cBridge, Alpaca Finance, ApolloX, Chainlink, GSR.
