DGAP-News: SwissBorg / Key word(s): Product Launch
SwissBorg simplifies DeFi by listing 5 new tokens!
The DeFi movement is an exciting evolution of blockchain-powered finance which is aligned with SwissBorg's core principles of decentralisation and transparency.
DeFi's pitfall is its complexity and the problems that follow when you use traditional instruments in a decentralised fashion without traditional safeguards. Additionally, the DeFi space is in its nascent stage and investment in DeFi tokens is, therefore, very high risk. While some call it a bubble, others see a fresh new decentralised space that allows loans and swaps without much interference from a centralised body.
At SwissBorg we bridge the off-chain and on-chain worlds to simplify the process of investing in this exciting new space.
Always keen to grow in this innovative space and listening to our community's wishes, we have carefully chosen five promising DeFi Tokens to list on our Wealth App - Aave, Kyber Network, Ren, Compound and Dai.
Aave is one of the largest DeFi tokens by market cap, with its price having skyrocketed by over 3,600% in 2020.
The Aave token can be used for fee reductions on the Aave protocol, which allows people to borrow and lend, including taking out loans without collateral and switching between flat and fixed interest rates. Token holders also get voting rights on Aave Improvement Proposals and benefit from Aave's token burning program to reduce supply and protect the price.
Kyber Network (KNC)
REN is a DeFi token developed by the company Ren to support its network of virtual computers, RenVM. These networks contribute bandwidth, computational power and storage capacity to decentralised applications, thus supporting the DeFi ecosystem
RenVM helps users work with tokens from different blockchains, with one application being giving investors the ability to tokenise BTC on the Ethereum blockchain (the renBTC token). The REN token is used to register these networks (known as Darknodes) to help prevent identity fraud.
Just launched in June, Compound is an ERC-20 asset that empowers community governance of the Compound protocol, which allows investors to deposit, borrow and earn interest on their crypto. By putting COMP tokens directly into the hands of users and applications, the ecosystem will be able to upgrade the protocol, stewarded by community governance.
Dai is the world's first decentralised stablecoin on the Ethereum network. It is pegged to the US dollar, offering the benefits of stablecoin to those who prefer decentralised finance. Managed by MakerDAO, it is the most-used asset as collateral on the lending platform, and a large flow of this token has already been observed.
