UniLend is a comprehensive permissionless DeFi protocol that combines both spot trading services and lending and borrowing functionality within the same platform. The interest rates and collateralization ratio are based on supply, demand, and community governance, whereas borrowing limits are decided by liquidity in the trading pairs.
Unlike other DeFi protocols, which only support a limited number of assets, UniLend allows for any asset to list on its platform, ultimately creating immense market opportunity not only for the assets but also for the decentralized and permissionless UniLend platform. Furthermore, UniLend plans to bridge the gap many tokens face before the DeFi ecosystem by enabling any ERC20 token to be utilized as collateral for lending and borrowing, whilst also providing trading flexibility for users operating within the UniLend platform.
Another unique feature of UniLend is its ability to feature the coexistence of trading and DeFi capabilities within one protocol. By doing so, the protocol is helping solve the liquidity and liquidation issue currently limiting the growth of widespread DeFi adoption. Users of UniLend are also able to create a spot trading pair and separate money markets for any token, further enabling DeFi participants to create their own lending and risk management strategies for lending, borrowing, and spot trading.
The native digital, cryptographically-secured utility token of the UniLend platform, UniLend Finance Token (UFT) is a transferable, non-refundable, representation of attributed functions specified in the protocol and code of the UniLend platform. UFT will serve as the native governance token of the UniLend platform and also see usage as the core medium of convenient and secure exchange between platform participants. UniLend’s introduction of UFT provides multiple use cases for community governance, platform utility, and product integration within the broader ecosystem. UFT also incentivises participants to contribute to and maintain the UniLend platform through economic rewards, continually encouraging the core aspects of decentralization and participation within the UniLend ecosystem.
Through creating an inclusive environment for all digital assets to participate in the DeFi ecosystem, including the $29.75B worth of assets currently excluded from DeFi, UniLend is truly creating a new niche in the marketplace that has been neglected and untapped until now. AscendEX is proud to continue its support for the growth of the DeFi ecosystem by listing projects such as UniLend.
