Yield Protocol

Yield Protocol (www.yieldprotocol.com) is a collateralized fixed-rate borrowing and lending marketplace on Ethereum. We pioneered structuring fixed rate loans as liquid ERC-20 tokens and developed a novel AMM (YieldSpace) for trading the tokenized loans. Yield Protocol launched its Version 2 in Oct. 2021 and has seen consistent un-incentivized growth in Total Value Locked of the protocol reaching close to $30M. We are backed by top investors in the cryptocurrency space including Paradigm, Framework Ventures, and more.
