Since our launch in 2019, we have considered the algorithmic trading model our foundational strategy rather than relying on the borrowing and lending model. This strategy has many advantages over borrowing and lending models, as seen below.
- High BTC and ETH earn rates
Crypto holders generally desire to lend their BTC and ETH to earn. At the same time, with stablecoins, there is a higher desire to borrow than lend. This is why BTC and ETH earn rates are low compared to relatively high stablecoin earn rates. With algorithmic trading, however, it is possible to attain high earn rates for BTC and ETH.
- No transaction limits
Paying out earnings to users through a borrowing and lending system can be difficult when there is a lower demand for loans. There is no limit on payouts per user with an algorithmic trading structure because it is able to maximize the algorithmic strategy to generate profit regardless of the number of withdrawals or deposits.
- Low risk of bank runs
The borrowing and lending system allows transactions without requiring a lockup. In an algorithmic trading structure, assets are managed for a fixed period once the deposit is made. This ensures financial stability is maintained even when many withdrawals are made when the fixed term ends.
