Insrt Finance launch fractionalized Bong Bear Vault.
Bong Bear is a rebasing NFT collection developed by Berachain. By owning this NFT, the owner can receive the Berachain token airdrop. However, due to the high floor price and low supply, most users cannot acquire a whole NFT.
On April 11th, INSRT will release the next Shard Vault - Bong Bear Vault. The vault will enable a much larger set of audience to have exposure to the Bong Bears collection. Users holding a Shard will also receive the Berachain token airdrop (!) in the future.
Rainfi has integrated with Tensor.
Rain.fi is a money market for NFT that combines peer-to-peer liquidity pool systems and peer-to-peer custom loan requests. It also allows users to purchase NFTs through mortgages by making an initial upfront payment. The NFT bought through this process is automatically converted into collateral and held in the user’s wallet until the loan is paid off.
With this new integration with Tensor, users on Rain.fi can now instantly buy or sell NFTs without actually owning them.
Milady non-floor is now the highest TVL pool on Caviar.
Caviar is an NFT AMM that allows both full-range LP and concentrated LP into a single liquidity surface. Users can create their own pool with customized parameters such as price range, pool fee, and stolen NFT filtering.
After Zhu Su changed his profile Twitter to Milady, the floor price of this collection increased by 30% in a day. Caviar is exploring pricing non-floor asset using desirability classifier where they take a bunch of price estimates, computer vision logic etc and weight each NFT based on this algo and split the weights into buckets that have defined ranges. Milady is the only collection they support on mainnet of this feature so far, and the fact that the mid-rarity pool of Milady has jumped to number 1 in terms of TVL shows the demand of market for such effective non-floor pool capability.
P.S: by the time the article is published, HoneyComb has taken back the number 1 TVL spot, but still an impressive thing!

Overall NFT lending market volume surpassed 1B in borrowing.
Last week, the total accumulative borrow volume from top NFT lending protocols such as NFTfi, Paraspace, and BendDAO has collectively surpassed $1 billion. Meanwhile, the number of daily unique users has steadily increased since May 2022, from 100 to ~300.
This growth, aside from the natural growing interest in NFT lending, is due partly to more players joining the NFTFi landscape, such as Paraspace. Although they only released their product in January 2023, they are now one of the top three NFT lending protocols by TVL and usage.
