Coinbase Lists New ‘Golden’ Ethereum Token As Crypto Markets Bounce

A decentralized credit protocol is looking to weave gold threads after a surprise listing by the largest US cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase.

The project fills a niche in the field of decentralized finance (DeFi) by offering loans without the need for collateral in the form of cryptocurrency.

Goldfinch says,

“The vast majority of borrowers in the world cannot actually borrow from DeFi today because it requires an increase in collateral with cryptocurrencies.

By removing the requirement for cryptographic collateral, the Goldfinch protocol opens up a whole new level of capacity for the borrower.

This is what will finally allow cryptocurrencies to rush into the global debt markets.”

Goldfinch is exploiting emerging economies across Africa, Asia, and Central and South America.
