    All About Gate.io's Lending & Single-Asset Vault
    Gate.io
    Updated at:44 days 10 hours ago

    ▶️What is Lending & Single-Asset Vault?

    The smart contract will aggregate users' token deposits, determine the interest rate by the algorithm according to the supply and demand relationship in the market, and then lend the tokens based on the borrower's mortgage assets. This mode is called "Lending & Single-Asset Vault".

    Gate.io's Lending & Single-Asset Vault is a type of Liquidity Mining, but the former is simpler and easier in operations. Liquidity mining involves two coins, and users earn income from transaction fees and incentives. Lending & Single-Asset Vault involves a single coin, and users earn from lending interests. The interest rate varies according to the demand and supply of currencies. Specifically, when the liquidity is insufficient, the interest rate will rise to encourage lenders to deposit. On the contrary, when the liquidity is abundant, the interest rate will fall to encourage borrowers to borrow. There should always be some kind of balance in the pool in order to make it sustainable.

    In a nutshell, Lending and Single-Asset Vault is a kind of hybrid between a CeFi and a DeFi lending service, as it combines the ease of use of the former with the decentralization of the latter.

    How can users get returns from Lending & Single-Asset Vault?

    The liquidity that users add to the Lending & Single-Asset Vault pool will be aggregated by the system and lent to borrowers. The loan interest paid by the borrower will be distributed to the depositors as income according to the proportion of liquidity. *Return of rate = income / principal x 100% x holding days

    ▶️Glossary

    DeFi: DeFi (Decentralized Finance) usually refers to a blockchain-based decentralized application (DApp) and decentralized exchange. It enables decentralization of the payment process, without relying on centralized financial intermediaries. For example, a third-party financial institution often charges a fee as payment during money transfer, whereas in DeFi applications, money can be sent directly to the designated wallet without any intermediary fees. Therefore, DeFi technology is mostly used in payment and lending cases.

    Liquidity Mining:
    In the automated market maker model, algorithmic robots simulate trading behaviour in the market to provide liquidity to the market. Every market that supports AMM has a corresponding funds pool in which market-making funds will be provided for AMM. The quotation of the AMM is determined by the ratio of the two coins in the pool, and the product of the two coins' amount will remain the same when trading. This model is also called Constant Product Market Maker.
    Users can become Liquidity Providers (LP) by providing liquidity to the pool, indirectly becoming a market maker and earning commission dividends from trading fees, which is known as liquidity mining.

    Liquidity: Liquidity usually refers to market liquidity. Specifically, it is the speed at which a transaction is concluded or the ability of market participants to make a transaction at the market price without causing large fluctuations in the market price. An active trading market must have good liquidity in order to quickly match the buying and selling of different trading volumes and trading prices. By observing the 24-hour trading volume, order depth and bid-ask spread, users can roughly judge whether the market has good liquidity.
