Protocol of the Week
Warp’s primary objective is to create an environment for crypto holders to invest unused liquidity provider (LP) tokens as collateral for lending. Its mission is to provide new lending opportunities to increase liquidity and free your assets.
Through Warp, users can deposit LP tokens and receive stablecoin loans in exchange. Plus, these LP tokens continue to earn via Uniswap’s rewards. So, you reduce your effective interest rate paid by lending LP tokens and receiving these trade fees from Uniswap.
$WARP – Warp Finance’s native token – is used to govern the protocol.
DeFi Strategy of the Week
Lending or borrowing through Warp Finance.
There are two primary methods to profit via Warp Finance: either as a borrower or a lender. As a borrower on Warp, you can deposit LP tokens generated from four Uniswap pairs:
These pairs are deposited at 150% over-collateralization, meaning a borrower must deposit at least 1.5x the value of their desired loan. After you deposit your LP tokens, you receive a loan of DAI, USDC, or USDT. The interest rate of this loan will fluctuate based on the availability of your selected stablecoin within the liquidity pool.
Keep in mind; your deposited LP tokens will earn 0.3% from Uniswap per trade made in the respective liquidity pool. Once you repay your loan, you may withdraw your collateral.
As a lender, you start by suppling either DAI, USDC, or USDT on Warp. In return, you’ll receive wDAI, wUSDC, or wUSDT. Each of these is an interest-earning token that indicates a deposit into Warp. Upon withdrawal, you get back your stablecoin, plus the interest earned.
Here’s an in-depth guide on how to use Warp Finance.
