Powered by EQIBank, the highly anticipated launch of EQIFI provides a single uniform platform for decentralized financial products.
British Virgin Islands, August 6, 2021 — EQIFI, a decentralized protocol for bulk lending, borrowing, and investing in Ethereum-based cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, and select fiat currencies, today launched its decentralized finance platform, including new products from fixed and floating rate lending, as well as an advanced yield aggregator and interest rate swaps.
Brad Yasar, CEO of EQIFI, said:
“We are incredibly excited to bring our new line of DeFi products to our community and customers. By harnessing the power of DeFi technology, EQIFI is positioning itself to become a global industry leader. Using blockchain technology, EQIFI is democratizing financial products that were previously only available to a select few and we believe EQIFI is best positioned to bring these products to customers who want to embrace digital banking evolution. an accessible and regulated manner.
Described in detail below, EQIFI’s new products simplify DeFi by consolidating a range of sophisticated services into one user-friendly platform. The products are designed to address the shortcomings of traditional banking, such as high fees, outdated technology, outdated pricing models, and costly cash handling.
EQIFI fixed rate products are pooled loans at a fixed interest rate that settle on a specified future date. The user provides collateral in the form of Ether (ETH), Wrapped Bitcoin (wBTC), stablecoins, or certain fiat currencies (converted to stablecoins) in pools, with fixed rates attached.
EQIFI floating rate products feature algorithmic borrowing rates, making the market automatically responsive to changes on the network based on user activity and demand, increasing levels of borrowing from the token pool .
EQIFI interest rate swaps are a DeFi forward contract in which one stream of future interest payments is exchanged for another based on a specified principal amount. Interest rate swaps generally involve exchanging a fixed interest rate for a floating rate or vice versa.
The EQIFI Yield Aggregator is an automated aggregator of all major external yield farming products, making yield farming simple and automatic. The platform automatically allocates capital between different pools of liquidity, seeking the optimal profit and margin.
Governed by holders of the platform’s native EQX token, EQIFI operates under a decentralized, community-driven philosophy, allowing community members to make important decisions about the future of the project, such as registration and delisting of assets and tokens, adjusting interest rates according to the market, modifying collateral limits and suspending any loans or deposits for a period of time.
EQIFI is powered by EQI Bank.
