At Compound, we’re building an Ethereum protocol that establishes pooled liquidity lending markets governed by algorithms that optimize borrowing demand and lending supply. Our goal is to become the interest rate layer for token assets, allowing any type of user (individual, hedge fund, or application) to earn interest, or borrow tokens, while maintaining instant liquidity.
Today, we’re announcing a number of strategic partnerships we’ve formed with top financial institutions from across the crypto capital markets landscape. This core group of 24 Fund Partners includes high-frequency trading firms and market makers, OTC trading and lending desks, and multi-strategy hedge funds. Alongside our investors, our partners will be working closely with the Compound team up to and through our launch, testing our protocol and providing feedback as well as committing initial liquidity as lenders and borrowers.
