What is Compound?

Copy link to section

Compound is software that lets you borrow and lend cryptocurrency. Anyone can take out a loan or deposit coins and start earning interest instantly, without needing the approval of a financial institution. 

It uses the COMP token as an incentive to reward those who provide liquidity or pay off their loans on time.

How does Compound work?

Copy link to section

Compound works by calculating interest rates based on supply and demand. These interest rates are an incentive: the less of a particular coin there is staked on the platform, the higher the interest rate on offer for depositing yours.

The principle works in reverse, as borrowing a coin with plenty of supply is cheaper.

How is the Compound network secured?

Copy link to section

Compound operates on the Ethereum blockchain. It is secured by the blockchain’s proof of work consensus mechanism. This means that other users on the network, known as nodes, verify and secure all transactions.

The algorithm requires nodes on the network to solve complex mathematical problems to validate new transactions and add them to the blockchain. Once a block of transactions has been verified, it is added to the previous block via a chain, forming a blockchain.

What is Compound used for?

Copy link to section

Compound is a key player in the growing world of decentralised finance. It has multiple uses, including loans without things like credit checks and a place to earn interest on crypto assets. Since 2018 it has raised over $30m in a series of funding rounds and the Coinbase exchange is a notable early backer.

Why does COMP have value?

Copy link to section

The Compound platform allows you to borrow and earn using cryptocurrency. When you deposit coins to earn interest, you are returned tokens that correspond to its value, which you can then loan, deposit, or stake elsewhere while still earning interest. You also have to post collateral (in the form of another cryptocurrency) to be able to borrow.

Who created Compound?

Copy link to section

Robert Leshner and Geoffrey Hayes founded Compound in 2017. Leshner and Hayes previously worked at online food delivery service, Postmates. Leshner is Compounds’ current CEO, while Hayes is its CTO.

Where can I buy Compound?

Copy link to section

You can buy Compound on a crypto exchange. An exchange is a marketplace that allows you to sign up, deposit your money, and buy some crypto, just as you would with a stock platform.

Most cryptocurrency brokers allow you to keep the coins you buy in your account. However, you may want to sign up for a dedicated crypto wallet for some extra security.

You can deposit money into a broker or exchange account by a bank transfer or card payment. However, if you prefer to use a different payment method, like PayPal, then your options may be more limited.

Are there any other ways to invest in Compound?

Copy link to section

The simplest way to invest in Compound is to buy it outright. However, another option is to simply open a crypto account. Crypto accounts are like regular bank accounts and allow you to store a variety of currencies, send and receive payments, earn interest on savings, and spend freely with a credit card.

You can also invest in crypto more generally through a crypto ETF. These are financial instruments that give you exposure to a group of leading cryptocurrencies more suited to high net worth individuals.
