Compound is a decentralized on-chain crypto financial market and lending network that creates asset pools with good interest rates based on the supply and demand of the assets.
The deposit and withdrawal procedures with Compound Lending are managed directly on the DeFi Wallet app due to Crypto.com’s DeFi Earn integration. This eliminates the need for you to deal with smart contract calls, clarifies the idea of cTokens, and shows the interest that has accrued over time.
How does Compound Lending work?
Compound’s key selling point is that it enables customers to earn interest on their cryptocurrency holdings without requiring them to be held in escrow by a third party.
When you transfer your tokens into the Compound Lending network using DeFi Earn, you are moving them to Compound’s smart contract. In return, you receive the equivalent cTokens in exchange, which reflects your claim to the lent assets.
Even if interest isn’t dispersed, merely keeping cTokens will earn you interest since they increase in value via their exchange rate over time. This happens even while the total quantity of cTokens in your wallet remains unchanged. Therefore, when you try to transfer your cTokens, Crypto.com shows an additional warning to make sure you grasp the implications of transferring your claim to lent assets plus the accumulated interest.
To redeem your invested assets and the interest that has accumulated based on the cToken base token rate of exchange, you must send cTokens to Compound.
