Crypto exchanges Binance, FTX and Poloniex are most active when it comes to listing decentralized finance (DeFi) governance tokens, according to The Block Research.
Binance has already listed nine out of 13 DeFi tokens, including Maker and Compound. FTX follows next in Tier-1 category of exchanges with six listings, and Poloniex is at the top in Tier-2 category with 11 listings.
Coinbase, on the other hand, has listed four DeFi tokens thus far — Maker, Compound, Kyber, and 0x. Gemini and Bitstamp are yet to move — this reflects with their broader strategy of listing large coins that attract volume, according to The Block's Larry Cermak.
There are also many Tier-3 crypto exchanges that have listed nearly all DeFi tokens. However, these exchanges don't have reliable volume and tend to be illiquid, per Cermak.
