Lending protocols - Money Legos bounty




over 1 year ago



37400 USD



In life, there comes a time when we have to borrow money e.g. student loan, car loan, mortgage etc. Lending is an essential service in any financial system. Traditional lenders such as banks, provide loans in exchange for a fee in the form of interest rates. Similar situations can also be found on the blockchain as well. A borrower needs a sum of money immediately available for an operation, and a lender may agree to provide such a loan in exchange for a fee.

Challenge Description

DeFi lending protocols are trustless platforms fueled by smart contracts. They allow users to become lenders or borrowers in a completely decentralized and permissionless way whilst maintaining full custody over their cryptocurrency tokens. Users, who want to become lenders, supply their tokens to a particular money market and start receiving interest on their tokens according to the current supply APY (Annual Percentage Yield). Borrowers can also borrow assets with collateral without intermediaries. In this bounty, we are seeking for DeFi lending protocols solutions that will help connect over the blockchain users who are looking for yields to their investments, and those users looking for short or long-term financing.
