📝 Simple Overview 📝
Are you one of the billions of people out there getting a raw interest deal from your bank? Well, there is now another way to get that sweet, sweet interest you deserve in defi. In this video, I tell you all about the Compound Finance lending platform and how to start earning 8% interest today.
❓ What Is Compound ❓
In short, Compound Finance simply matches people that want to borrow crypto with those that want to supply crypto to earn interest. The platform allows users to lend or borrow a plethora of cryptocurrencies including Ethereum, Dai, USD Coin, Augur, SAI, Wrapped BTC, BAT and 0x. You should know that the stable coin Dai makes up the lions share of the lending and borrowing on Compound.
💰 What Are cTokens? 💰
Want to compound that awesome interest rate? Don’t be so hasty. It’s probably a good idea to understand what’s going on behind the scenes with your money.
If you supply Dai to earn interest on the platform, you will get something known as cDai sent back into your Ethereum wallet. It’s slightly confusing as you get a seemingly random amount cDai. So, what’s going on with that?
The first thing to know is that cDAI acts as a redemption token to redeem actual DAI. The same is true of any asset listed on Compound Finance. Any crypto asset you supply to earn interest on, you’ll get back a cToken for that asset.
cTokens are designed to increase slightly after every Ethereum block generated. This is how interest is generated on the platform.
🏁 How To Get Started Earning Interest On Compound Finance? 🏁

🔮 Why DeFi Lending Platforms Could Trigger Insane Capital flows Into Crypto? 🔮
Right now, banks are offering truly terrible interest rates. Lock up your money for three years at HSBC in the UK and you can expect to get only 2% interest. The point is that there are probably hundreds of millions of people around the world sitting on cash deposits in banks earning almost no interest whatsoever.
In addition, other assets like equities in the stock market look overextended. Maybe some people will begin to think the risk to reward profile is just not there anymore in these assets? There are over $85 trillion dollars worth of value locked up in global stock markets.
The bond markets have over $2.4 trillion worth of value stored in them. In the UK, a government two-year bond pays just 0.5% a year. The point is there is a lot of money sitting in banks, bonds and other assets that could get significantly better returns in defi. The key question is whether more and more people will start seeing opportunities like Compound as a solid alternative and reallocate their capital to defi.
