Compound is a DeFi lending system that allows users to earn interest on their cryptocurrency deposits by depositing them into one of the platform's multiple pools.
When a user deposits tokens into a Compound pool, they receive cTokens in exchange. These cTokens reflect the individual's investment in the pool and may be used to redeem the underlying cryptocurrency that was first placed into the pool at any time. For example, by depositing Bitcoin in the pool you will receive cBTC in return. Over time the exchange rate of these cTokens to the underlying asset rises, allowing owners to redeem tokens for more value than they initially invested—this is how the interest is allocated.
Borrowers, on the other hand, can get a secured loan from any Compound pool by submitting collateral. The maximum loan-to-value (LTV) ratio varies depending on the collateral asset, although it is currently between 50 and 75 percent. Borrowers may face involuntary liquidation if their collateral falls below a certain maintenance level, and the interest rate paid varies per borrowed asset.
Since its inception in September 2018, Compound has grown in popularity and recently surpassed $800 million in total locked value.
