TezFin (Tezos Finance) And Yupana.Finance Launch On Tezos Mainnet

Decentralized lending platforms TezFin (Tezos Finance) and Yupana.Finance both launch on Tezos mainnet.

With Kord.Fi (a lending platform for liquidity baking) also launching recently it means Tezos has gone from zero to three lending platforms in just one month.

Yupana Finance

Yupana was tested extensively by Madfish developers with the entire community’s help and has already launched on the Tezos mainnet. 

So, now anyone can interact with lending protocol’s tools inside the Tezos world, taking advantage of the decentralized money market protocols.

Using Yupana, lenders provide liquidity and receive passive income, while borrowers take over collateralized loans.

In turn, liquidators are incentivized to close insufficient collateral positions to keep the platform running.

“We’ve worked hard to provide a full-fledged liquidity protocol and I hope that users will enjoy a new level of experience inside the Tezos DeFi ecosystem, which has now become complete and comprehensive,”

– Sophia Gorban, the Yupana.Finance product owner

For now, Yupana supports the following assets: TEZ, cTEZ, kUSD, tzBTC, uUSD, and uBTC. 

The APY will be determined by the market demand for the corresponding asset.

How to Start:

For experienced users, exploring Yupana.Finance provides a similar experience to Aave or Compound with a convenient UI.

TezFin (Tezos Finance)

TezFin (Tezos Finance) launched on Tezos mainnet on August 16th, 12am Eastern Time.

TezFin is a lending platform, where users can both lend and borrow tokens in a decentralized manner.

This means that you don’t need a third party to mediate and enable you to lend or borrow.

In this case, it’s the smart contracts that are deployed on the blockchain that fulfill the function of that third party.

By supplying tokens, you can earn interest on tokens you own. The percentage that you can earn varies throughout the lending period. It depends on supply and demand.

On the other end, if you borrow tokens, you will pay interest. You can only borrow, if you supply collateral. The collateral value needs to remain above a minimum level, if not, liquidation will take place.

It is advised uses fully understand the risks before taking out a loan. More info on this here from TezFin.

The reason for users to borrow tokens, is in an attempt to profit from price increases of both tokens, profit from staking possibilities of the borrowed token, or to utilize/trade in other DeFi applications. 

The first tokens that are listed on the platform are XTZ, USDtz, ETHtz an BTCtz.

The TezFin team announced that in the near future, the following additional tokens will be listed: CTez, WTZ, oXTZ, tzBTC, EURL, USDT and SIRS.

TezFin was tested by the community on testnet, but not audited yet.

We must emphasize that although this represents a milestone step, the code is early and without a formal audit. Please do not deposit more than you are comfortable losing. The earliest point of any new code deployment is its riskiest time.”
