Smaller altcoins are often new or apply to niche use cases. Therefore, they can be more speculative than more popular, large market cap cryptocurrencies. The capital locked in these smaller altcoin assets often cannot easily be deployed into the DeFi ecosystem due to a lack of broad support by DeFi platforms.
Fringe Finance solves this problem by accepting a large variety of smaller altcoin assets as collateral for stablecoin loans. Although they are often more volatile than the larger, more popular coins, Fringe Finance uses a variety of borrowing parameters and related mechanisms to maintain the stability and financial protection of the platform.
Fringe Finance’s vision also includes cross-chain collateralization, fixed-interest loans, a truly decentralized UI, and embedded DeFi insurance. These will provide a platform rich in features to service the growing crypto economy. The Fringe Finance platform will sustainably adapt through transitioning governance to the Fringe Finance DAO so that its community of stakeholders can best guide its future direction to best suit the community.
