Blog Inline MPL Maple Finance (MPL)

MPL is an ERC-20 token built on the Ethereum network. Primary use cases include governance, staking, and pool cover. Lenders who interact with Maple Finance pools receive MPL-LP tokens, which can be staked to earn rewards in MPL. Maple Finance is an institutional borrowing and lending protocol. Every pool created on Maple has its own set of parameters that define various aspects of the pool, including the asset being lent to the pool, the fee structure, the capacity of the pool, who can access the pool, and lockup period, among others. Each pool on Maple Finance has a dedicated “Pool Delegate,” who performs diligence on the pool, negotiates terms with borrowers, and is tasked with liquidating the pool should there be a default.

Blog Inline DPI DeFi Pulse Index (DPI)

DPI is an ERC-20 token built on the Ethereum network. DPI can be redeemed for a basket of assets on the Ethereum network, that could include tokens like Uniswap (UNI), Aave (AAVE), and Maker (MKR).

Blog Inline RBN Ribbon Finance (RBN)

RBN is an ERC-20 governance token compliant with the Ethereum network. RBN holders can engage in governance by voting on proposals or making their own vaults and trading strategies. RBN can also be used to provide liquidity incentives and staking rewards for vaults. RBN can be further used as a way to mitigate black swan events, and RBN stakers insure losses beyond an agreed-upon threshold that differs by vault.

In contrast to competitors like MakerDAO, Liquity loans carry a 0% interest rate but charge a fee for loan creation. The minimum loan size on Liquity is 2,000 LUSD. Whereas Liquity itself does not provide a frontend interface to interact with the protocol, it offers its native utility token, LQTY, to incentivize the development of frontend interfaces by third parties.

Blog Inline FXS Frax Share (FXS)

FXS is an ERC-20 token built on the Ethereum network. Its primary uses include governance, minting, staking, and redeeming FRAX, as well as providing liquidity incentives.

Frax Finance is a decentralized lending platform which issues the FRAX stablecoin. Frax Finance algorithmically sustains the value of FRAX through the use of fractional collateral reserves. The collateral used on Frax Finance is split between an accepted collateral (e.g. stablecoins) and Frax Finance’s governance token, FXS. The collateralization ratio for FRAX changes based on its price. You can see the FXS price and get more information by following this link.
