Introducing our partners

Minterest is a ground-breaking lending protocol built by industry leaders to service billions in TVL, and to challenge existing DeFi incumbents. The protocol captures significantly more surpluses on-chain than any other DeFi protocol which is an industry first. It passes on these surpluses to its users using a unique protocol-managed buyback process. Lending protocols generate significant value, amounting to hundreds of millions in surpluses each year, but traditionally this has not been passed on to users – until now.

As the next step, the focus is now on building the community and providing private access to the protocol to early participants and supporters.

Backed by billions

The project has secured participation from some of the most experienced players in crypto, each renowned for their experience, extensive communities and/or their ability to tactically bring real value to DeFi projects like Minterest. With combined portfolios amounting to tens of billions, Minterest’s financial supporters represent exceptional leaders in the digital landscape.

About Minterest

Minterest is a unique borrowing/lending protocol built by industry leaders to service the billions in Total Value Locked (TVL), in DeFi lending projects, with the specific aim of putting user benefits at its core. It provides users with a decentralised financial platform that is fair and inclusive.

The Minterest protocol has the world’s first buyback mechanism, which automatically captures and passes on rewards to platform users via its unique on-chain liquidation process. This means that users participate in rewards generated by the protocol, in addition to earning industry leading borrowing/lending rates. This results in potentially the highest long-term yields in DeFi.
