Curve Finance (CRV)

178 Articles 14 Followers

Curve Finance is a decentralized exchange exclusively designed for stablecoins, with the key feature being that it offers very low slippage as stablecoins are exchanged directly with each other. The development team has designed the algorithm to minimize slippage, with trading fees set at 0.04%. Additionally, impermanent loss i.e. a prevalent phenomenon in liquidity pools, is much lower when compared to other platforms of its kind.

 

The platform was first launched in December 2019, with early work beginning in September 2019. No official team exists. However, GitHub shows that much of the development work comes from Michael Egorov, who serves as the CTO of NuCypher, a company that is building encryption technology. 

 

In order to begin using Curve Finance, users need a web wallet like Metamask, with several others also being supported. Curve Finance currently supports the following assets: DAI, USD Coin (USDC), Tether (USDT), PAX, True USD (TUSD), Binance USD (BUSD) and Synthetix’s sUSD, as well as renBTC, wBTC and sBTC. It has also integrated with other platforms, including Compound Finance, RenVM and iEARN. 

 

Curve Finance’s design allows users to earn additional revenue from their decentralized finance (defi) investments. The protocol does not have a native token. For example, users can hold their stablecoin asset, earning money through the Compound Finance protocol while Curve Finance rebalances the investor’s tokens to obtain the highest interest rate among a set of tokens.
