Talking about the results of her data, co-founder of VALK Antoine besmear Comments: “DeFi is growing rapidly. There was less than $1 billion of digital assets held in DeFi services two years ago, and today that number is over $250 billion, so institutional investors dealing with billions of assets naturally have concerns.
In addition, co-founder of VALK Eli disgusting He said, “VALK anticipates more transparency regarding the use of DeFi protocols over the coming months and years, and with that the institutional interest in using DeFi will increase. The DeFi smart wallet and smart aggregator will serve not only crypto citizens, but also the growing number of institutions from traditional finance (TradFi) that It has shown an interest in financing its DeFi assets.”
In an effort to allay investor skepticism, VALK is preparing to introduce the “Merlin” DeFi smart wallet, which is set to launch this month. A smart wallet provides scope for analysis on the blockchain of user DeFi locations via multiple protocols. It then extracts all transactions related to a single wallet, retrieves the position of each digital asset deployed via the DeFi protocols and calculates the positions (against the US dollar or another currency) along with the resulting return.

These reporting features are missing from traditional DeFi smart wallets, but they are essential for investors, especially institutional fund managers, who need daily monitoring and tracking of NAV and investment returns across positions/assets in their portfolios.
