BOREALEND — Lending Protocol

Aurora Swap
3 min readJan 14, 2022

We’re thrilled to announce the public launch of BOREALEND, an AuroraSwap lending protocol to power the financial markets & applications of the future.

The oracle we’ve teamed up with will be ready to rock within the week. We’ll launch BOREALEND immediately after.

Supplying liquidity to BOREALEND is easy. Each market has its own xToken (xETH, xAurora, xBRL…), which you’ll receive when you supply that asset to the protocol. xTokens represent your balance on the BoreaLend lending platform.

Simply by holding xTokens, you’ll earn interest. Interest which accumulates via the xToken’s exchange rate over time. Each xToken becomes convertible into an increasing amount of its corresponding token.

Lending Token

The lending protocol requires it’s own token; so BEHOLD! The birth of
BoreaLend ($BRLEND) — the native token of BOREALEND lending protocol.

Launch price/date and tokenomics — TBA

How lending works?

Just like banks… but better

Lending platforms offer cryptocurrency loans in a trustless manner; allowing the holders to stake the coins they have in the platform for lending purposes.

On the Lending platform, a borrower can take a loan, allowing the lender to earn interest upon repayment. The lending process is executed from the start to finish without intermediaries.

A token holder sends the tokens they intend to loan out into a pool by means of our smart contract(s). Once the coins are sent to a smart contract, they become available to other users for borrowing. Thereafter, the smart contract issues tokens (the platform’s native token) automatically lenders. Those tokens can be redeemed; in addition to the underlying assets that were sent to the smart contract.

Virtually all loans issued via the native tokens are collateralized. This means that users who wish to borrow funds will need to provide a guarantee. However, unlike the centralized financial system, the guarantee in the DeFi space is in the form of cryptocurrencies that are worth more than the actual loan itself.

BUIDL Program Participants

Rules and features of the BUIDL Program are constantly improving and evloving. Many BUIDL Participants will be eligible to participate in the lending protocol. There will be strict rules and guidelines in place for the tokens used as collateral. Projects and protocols will pass both a quality check and a prescribed criteria, then can be added as a lendable token!

We are currently in negotiations with future BUIDL program participants which just seem to keep getting bigger in their name recognition and notoriety…it seems we’re doing something right :)
