Ethena Will Emerge as Top Revenue Generator in Crypto: Delphi Labs CEO

According to the CEO of Delphi Labs, Ethena Labs’ synthetic dollar has the potential to rise and claim the spot as the third-largest asset among stablecoins, courtesy of its competitive yield.

In a bold proclamation, José Maria Macedo, CEO of Delphi Labs and founding partner of Delphi Ventures, has declared that Ethena Labs is set to become the highest revenue-generating cryptocurrency project in the market. Macedo’s statement comes amid growing anticipation surrounding Ethena’s synthetic dollar, which he believes could catapult the project to the forefront of the crypto industry.

Ethena’s Projected Success

Macedo’s confidence in Ethena’s potential is evident in his recent blog post, where he outlined the project’s trajectory during the current bull cycle. He emphasized the competitive edge of Ethena’s sUSDe, which he predicts will offer the highest dollar yield in crypto at scale. Furthermore, Macedo foresees Ethena’s USDe becoming the largest stablecoin outside of USDC/USDT by 2024, positioning Ethena as the leading revenue generator in the crypto space.

Ethena’s Milestones

Ethena Labs achieved a significant milestone on March 8 when it emerged as the highest-earning decentralized application (DApp) in crypto by offering a staggering 67% annual percentage yield (APY) on its USDe synthetic dollar. The project officially launched USDe on the public mainnet on February 19, garnering attention from over 118,000 users enticed by its competitive APY.

Currently, Ethena’s USDe is delivering a compelling 35.4% APY, solidifying its appeal to crypto enthusiasts seeking lucrative investment opportunities.

Airdrop Frenzy and Market Surge

The bullish sentiments surrounding Ethena were further fueled by the recent launch of the Ethena Labs airdrop on April 2. The airdrop, which distributed $450 million worth of ENA tokens to eligible wallets, witnessed enthusiastic participation, with the largest recipient receiving nearly $2 million worth of ENA tokens, according to Arkham Intelligence data.

USDe’s Ascent in the Stablecoin Market

While Ethena’s USDe currently ranks as the seventh-largest asset among stablecoins, with a market capitalization of $1.9 billion, Macedo believes it has the potential to climb to the third position. To achieve this feat, USDe’s market cap would need to surge by at least 178% to surpass $5.3 billion, surpassing Dai (DAI).

Recent data from CoinMarketCap and DefiLlama indicate a promising trajectory for USDe, with its market cap experiencing a significant uptick of over 21% in the last 24 hours and 165% in the last month, reaching $1.89 billion.

The Future of Ethena

Macedo envisions Ethena’s USDe as a game-changer in the stablecoin market, introducing a competitive new tradeoff that positions it for exponential growth. While acknowledging that USDe may not be fully decentralized, Macedo emphasizes its scalability and strategic positioning within the tradeoff spectrum, setting the stage for Ethena’s dominance in the crypto revenue landscape.


As Ethena continues to innovate and expand its offerings, all eyes are on its journey to becoming a powerhouse in the cryptocurrency ecosystem, reshaping the landscape of decentralized finance (DeFi) and redefining the standards for stablecoin dominance.
