Zerion, a decentralized finance (DeFi) solution provider, has introduced a new DeFi SDK. The SDK is an open source smart contract system that makes integrating the many protocols across the DeFi space easier. More specifically, the DeFi SDK solves the fragmentation problem, while remaining open.
In what might be a first in the world of open APIs and mashups, a developer has been sued by a major corporation for developing an application using a third party web service API. As TechCrunch's Jason Kincaid reports, Ryan Sit, the talented developer behind a number of popular mashups is being sued by EMI for his application Favtape because it uses the Seeqpod API. Of course it's not unusual for a record label to aggressively use the courts to defend copyright, but this appears to take the battle to a new ground. As Jason describes:
Email marketing service provider MailChimp announced last week a new $1 million dollar fund for startups building products that integrate with the service's MailChimp API. MailChimp's program is somewhat unique in that they won't be asking for equity from the companies they fund. It's a pretty attractive deal for prospective partners and a trail-blazing move for a platform in an increasingly competitive industry.
