The Compound protocol is a decentralized lending and borrowing platform built on the Ethereum blockchain. Compound allows users to lend and borrow a variety of different cryptocurrencies, such as Ethereum and stable coins, using smart contracts. Both sides of the transaction, the lender and the borrower, who operate on this platform, due to its decentralized nature, only deal with the compound platform and there is no middleman involved. The interest rates on loans and transactions are determined by supply and demand, with borrowers earning interest on their deposited assets and lenders earning interest on the assets they lend out. The COMP token is used to govern the protocol and gives token holders the ability to vote on changes to the Compound protocol. Additionally, users who supply assets to the protocol are rewarded with COMP tokens as interest.
