These are not DeFi products. Everything that has an admin key with which to change the smart contract cannot be and is not a DeFi. UniSwap is DeFi without admin keys. Hex is DeFi without admin keys. Most other things are CeFi - Centralized Finance.

Apparently they’ve cut and run, disappearing without trace and deleting everything, including their website, as they go. I can’t find any news on this that isn’t cut and paste, but how can you know if an exchange is genuine DeFi or not? Apparently this one had been audited. Also, who would put $1m in a random exchange that’s only been running for a month? Fools and their money…
