Wyre Talks

Ep 16, Compound — Yield Opportunities in Crypto with Robert Leshner, Founder and CEO

Episode Summary

In this Wyre Talks, we are excited to host Robert Leshner, Founder and CEO of Compound. Robert is a rare dangerous combination with a background in economics and product. For building a money market on the blockchain, it's clear he’s the man for the job. With a mind for designing effective protocol level incentives along with a clean UX for users, Compound has created the largest on chain debt marketplace.

Episode Notes

Less is more - keep it simple. That's the elegance of the Compound protocol. Compound has created a liquid, on-chain lending market. By keeping loan terms identical and utilizing a cohesive rate interest model, Compound has created a deep liquidity in a floating rate money market. With a long-term vision for protocol-level governance and a native model for generating revenue, the roadmap for Compound's success seems much more visible than the average protocol level project.
