The crypto firm Blockchain.com has revealed it has secured up to $100 million in liquidity from Truefi’s single-borrower pool. The pool will be initially capped at $100 million over the first year and Blockchain.com aims to use the funds to bolster its own “liquidity pools, leverage trading support, and book of lending services.”
The leading digital asset services and exchange company Blockchain.com has announced it has secured $100 million in liquidity from the uncollateralized borrowing and lending platform Truefi. Essentially, the decentralized finance (defi) platform Truefi leverages on-chain credit scores in order to facilitate uncollateralized lending. The platform claims to offer competitive returns for lenders with “no lockup period and deep exit liquidity.”
According to Truefi, the single-borrower pool will provide “debt to Blockchain.com [that] will be available to all Know Your Customer-verified, non-U.S. lenders on the Truefi platform, offering them an expected APY of 8.50 percent, before incentives.” Truefi has already showcased the single borrower pool concept with Alameda Research and the team also helped Perpetual Protocol launch the first protocol-to-protocol lending pool.
Rafael Cosman, the CEO of Trusttoken explained in a statement sent to Bitcoin.com News that Truefi welcomes Blockchain.com into the fold, and further said it doesn’t surprise him to see large financial institutions leverage on-chain books. “It is inspiring – although not surprising – to see more leading financial institutions bring their books of business on-chain, giving our global lender base even more financial opportunities,” Cosman remarked. Trusttoken is the parent company of Truefi and since November 2020, Trusttoken has “completed $1.3 billion of origination and $1 billion of repayments with no defaults.”
Blockchain.com’s head of credit and lending, Reid Simon, believes uncollateralized borrowing and lending is very efficient and the company looks forward to growing the portfolio. “Uncollateralized on-chain borrowing is among the most efficient ways for high-quality borrowers to connect with global lenders, at scale” Simon detailed. “We’re excited to work together to provide the Truefi community with a new financial portfolio to explore and to grow the portfolio over time as we build credit history with Truefi lenders.”
