Aurigami is a DeFi protocol with some great rates. In fact, they even have double-digit rates on some stablecoins. In this article, you can find out more about Aurigami.

It’s a lending protocol where investors can get leverage through borrowing. Rates to borrow are a fraction of what they would usually pay to traditional lending institutions. Near Protocol’s EVM, Aurora, has its own app enabling users to easily lend and borrow. And that app is the first and only money market protocol, Aurigami. It enables users to easily earn interest on their digital assets.

DeFi on Near Protocol’s Aurora EVM

Aurigami uses Aurora. The app is a decentralized, noncustodial liquidity protocol on the NEAR Protocol.  And Near’s blockchain has a reputation for high throughput and scalability. Also, the protocol enables users to lend, borrow, and earn interest on their digital assets with ease. Depositors give liquidity to the protocol in order to earn a passive income. Then others can borrow in an over-collateralized method. Aurigami users will be able to lend and borrow their cryptocurrency at advantageous rates. Users may simply deposit assets that support the protocol to generate rates ranging from 8% to 12%. In fact, the protocol support assets such as ETH, Wrapped BTC, and stablecoins such as USDC and USDT. And there are more on the way as Aurigami grows into a trustworthy Aurora protocol.
