Cream is a lending platform built on Ethereum that enables users to permissionlessly borrow or lend from a pool of assets. Rather than interest rates being set by individuals, they are determined algorithmically based on the proportion of assets lent out. Cream is a fork of Compound.
What is the project trying to achieve?
Users on the platform are able to lend supported assets and use the capital as collateral to borrow other assets. The project is currently live on Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Fantom, Polygon, Arbitrum.
What is unique selling point?
C.R.E.A.M. Finance helps provide liquidity to important DeFi assets through automated market making (AMM) , allowing users to borrow and lend supported assets and earn liquidity mining rewards in the form of its CREAM token by supplying any supported asset as collateral. In return, it collects swap, lending and borrowing fees from users.
The platform aims to list and support tokens important to the DeFi sector, for example the biggest stablecoins (USDT, USDC, BUSD, yCRV, etc), governance tokens (COMP, BAL, YFI, LEND, CRV, CREAM etc.), and other leading cryptocurrencies such as ETH, renBTC and LINK .
As an ERC20 token on the Ethereum network, CREAM can run Ethereum Virtual Machines through smart contracts, while users can create DAoos for its community, thus resulting in better composability, i.e. plugging different financial services into each other.
CREAM tokens can be staked for a period of up to four years in order to accrue rewards; however, it is important to note that there is no admin unlock available.Therefore, you will only receive your rewards at the end of your staking period.
