What is Compound?

Compound (COMP) is an algorithmic interest rate market where users can deposit cryptocurrency and start earning a return on it. Digital assets are deposited into lending pools, which can then be accessed by borrowers.

Individuals can turn to Compound to earn interest on their cryptocurrency, while supplying liquidity, and developers can tap into Compound for a source of liquidity, while further bolstering the Compound platform. The idea is that many people will be accessing the underlying Compound platform through many different applications, and that it will become an important tool underlying many other parts of the DeFi ecosystem. To this end, Compound aims to become more resilient and open by decentralising its governance across a community of token holders.

There are two different tokens that are key to the Compound platform. Those that put their tokens in the Compound lending pool are rewarded with a cToken, which correlates to the amount of crypto they’ve deposited for lending. These tokens are transferrable for other cTokens, but can only be exchanged for the original locked-up asset. Holders of cTokens will then receive interest in the form of COMP tokens, depending on how many cTokens they have in their wallet.
