Binance Release Use Case For Ethereum Loan Project

Binance Release Use Case  For Ethereum Loan Project

Binance research, the market analysis wing of Binance, have released their analysis of the pros and cons of Ethereum’s borrowing and lending service.

The service is one of the main applications of the Ethereum blockchain. However, is it worth your time? Binance research delve into the use cases of the system to decide whether or not, users should be inclined to use it.

Ethereum’s, borrowing and lending service was described by the report as “by nature, platform-agnostic, DeFi applications are almost exclusively being developed and used on Ethereum.” As such, it is a service for everyone, so many people will do well to learn more about the product. However, people who regularly used Etereum’s services will benefit from this knowledge too. While, of course, people already using DeFI will benefit the most from learning about its pros and cons.

As per the report, there were three clear advantages of using DeFi protocols:

– Transparency and price efficiency

– Ease of access and speed when borrowing/lending capital

– Censorship resistance and immutability

However, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows when you are using the service either. As there were also two negatives highlighted by the research team:

Technology risks, as smart contract risk replaces counterparty risk, and low liquidity, as there are limits to borrowing and lending at current interest rate without affecting the interest rates.

With the overall summary of the product by the team being, “the crypto-powered lending space is still nascent but offers a compelling value proposition whereby individuals and institutions can move past outdated credit models to provide broader access to capital without the need for a trusted intermediary.”

This is the first of their new DeFi analysis series and you can learn about different DeFi series over the coming week and months. You can read the full report of this first one here.
