We are excited to announce you can now buy Compound (Comp) on Elbaite, Australia’s safest cryptocurrency exchange!
Even though the Compound project released their governance token, Comp, very recently on June 16th, it did not take long to become a leader in the decentralised finance (DeFi) rankings. Conversations that involve DeFi coins such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Chainlink and the “stablecoin” Dai now also talk about the Comp token.
What is Compound?
Compound is an algorithmic, autonomous interest rate protocol built for developers, to unlock a universe of open financial applications.
Compound (COMP) is an ERC-20 asset that empowers community governance of the Compound protocol; COMP token-holders and their delegates debate, propose, and vote on all changes to the protocol.
By placing COMP directly into the hands of users and applications, an increasingly large ecosystem will be able to upgrade the protocol, and will be incentivized to collectively steward the protocol into the future with good governance.
