The DAO for BNB Chain derivatives trading platform ApolloX is voting to move away from staking rewards for APX-BUSD to other coins, including $BNB.
BUSD Phaseout Impacts DeFi
The Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) for ApolloX is considering a proposal to move away from staking rewards for the original APX-BUSD LP token, citing “the uncertainty and potential risks of the BUSD stablecoin.”
The BNB Chain derivatives trading platform is one of many Decentralized Finance (DeFi) protocols that will have to make similar decisions following news that Paxos Global will stop minting the Binance-branded stablecoin on Ethereum.
(See our review of DeFi protocols with the largest yield-producing BUSD pools here.)
The ApolloX proposal gives voters four options for migrating staking rewards: APX-USDC, APX-USDT, APX-BNB or keeping APX-BUSD.
Very early returns have APX-BNB leading with 65% of the vote. The DAO vote ends Feb. 18.
