[PRESS RELEASE – Bangalore, India, 14 Dec 2021]
Defi space has seen numerous innovations in 2021. Owing to the increasing demands, Paxo Finance partners up with innovative platforms and protocols to enhance our product for the masses. We are thrilled to announce our strategic and financial partnership with Polygon Network. With this strategic alliance, we wish to maximize investment abilities by transforming the under-collateralized loan space in the Defi world.
Moulding the Future
Participation in the DeFi ecosystem is less than 5% of the entire crypto user base, with under collateralised lending protocol PAXO aims to bring next million users in the main DeFi ecosystem.
Borrowing options for a borrower are highly overcollateralized and capital inefficient. Interest rates for leverage trading on some of the largest centralized exchanges and known defi protocols are much higher than for collateralized loans. The number of investors in the cryptocurrency market is increasing, and the majority of them are now looking for a return on their investments. Simultaneously, investors are looking for capital to invest in cryptocurrency. The existing Defi platforms are overcollateralized and frequently geared toward margin trading.
This problem can be solved with our decentralized protocol. We do not rely on credit scoring or centralized enforcement to facilitate lending, and have created a completely safe and trustless protocol for crypto traders to gain maximum loans on their capital with minimum collateral.
Paxo Finance X Polygon
Our strategic partnership with Polygon will allow lenders and borrowers to have greater access to Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks, broadening the scope for under collateralized borrowing options which is widely seen as the next transformative step for DeFi. PAXO creates the path to higher capital efficiency, generating a higher interest rate for lenders and maximum capital access for borrowers.
This strategic partnership with Polygon will help us solidify the network for all the lenders and borrowers on Paxo; thereby increasing the user activities across the platform. It will further accelerate the growth of the DeFi ecosystem and increase participation by investors of all sizes with under-collateralized loans.
“We are thrilled to work with the best of the best in the Ethereum scaling movement-Polygon and utilize their expertise and the Polygon architecture to enhance our platform for the benefit of the users. This partnership is going to further enhance the capabilities of Paxo and help us achieve greater heights. We look forward to a fruitful collaboration with the team.” – Ankur Jain, Paxo Finance
