How Does Clearpool Operate?
The liquidity pool on the Clearpool app is open for approved institutional borrowers that complete the know your customer (KYC) process with Clearpool. As well as, with one of its partners.
Notably, these liquidity pools are available for any interested user to deposit USDC and get rewards in CPOOL LP rewards. Users also get continuously compounded interest in USDC alongside the CPOOL LP rewards whenever a pool borrower decides to borrow liquidity from the pool. This makes the platform lucrative for DeFi lending.
Additionally, the interest a user earns comes from the amount of the pool the borrower is using. The more a borrower uses the pool, the higher the interest rate as the user is rewarded for risk increase. This is called the interest rate curve.

- Institutions agree to higher interest rates as they are not providing collateral. These higher rates come via the CPOOL LP rewards. And they match the assessed risks.
- The creation of an insurance account for every borrower liquidity pool on Clearpool. This involves moving a little portion of interest on every block to an insurance account inside the smart contract. If there is a default, the pool LPs can choose to claim the total in the insurance account as compensation.
- Activate an auction. In this case, whitelisted bidders can place a bid for the pool’s total debt. The minimum bid must be equivalent to the sum in the insurance account. Afterward, the LPs will choose to accept or reject the winning bid via a vote.
