QI tokens are native assets at Avalanche and oversee the entire ecosystem of the BENQI protocol, including Treasury and future iterations of the protocol. BENQI is a decentralized unmanaged liquidity market protocol built on Avalanche. The agreement allows users to easily borrow money and earn interest on their digital assets. Depositors who provide liquidity for the protocol are likely to receive passive income, while borrowers are able to borrow against excess collateral.
Decentralized finance (DeFi) has grown substantially in the past two years. Since most of DeFi's activities are now on Ethereum, the network is starting to experience congestion issues, resulting in high network costs. This proved to be a significant barrier for both existing and new users with less capital to justify participation in DeFi.
BENQI aims to mitigate these issues by providing liquid market protocols on a highly scalable and decentralized platform. Focusing on accessibility, ease of use and low cost, BENQI will enable users to:
2. Borrow money from the liquid market immediately, using the assets it provides as collateral. 3.
