What is Anchor Protocol?
Anchor Protocol is a savings-based DeFi protocol on the Terra blockchain that supposedly enables you to earn higher returns on your savings as passive income. ANC is its native token which is used for staking and governance. The protocol accepts deposits in Terra tokens and enables instant withdrawals while paying you a “low volatility interest rate.” Terra is a blockchain protocol that utilizes stablecoins pegged to fiat currencies to enable price-stable payment systems. Anchor’s core proposition is a principal-protected stablecoin product that pays you a stable interest rate on your savings.
For generating yields, the protocol lends deposits to borrowers that deposit collateral in the form of staked assets from major blockchains. The collateral is known as bAssets. The interest rates on deposits are stabilized by sharing a fraction of the yield of the deposited bAssets with the depositor. In addition to the fixed interest rates, the protocol also guarantees a principal-protected system. The principal is guaranteed for depositors by liquidating collateral from the borrowers.
This liquidation is done through liquidation contracts and third parties that indulge in arbitrage. Users that aren’t interested in depositing or borrowing funds, can participate in this protocol through Anchor’s liquidation pool. This is a high-risk high-return product that enables principal protection for the protocol’s debt positions to the lenders. Such users earn rewards through passive premiums and liquidation fees on the execution of the liquidation contracts.
