The majority of cryptocurrencies sit idle on exchanges and in wallets, without yielding interest. A greater number of assets are stuck in an old financial system and don’t have a path to being onchain. We're on a mission to change that.
At Compound Labs we develop protocols, governance systems, developer tools, and financial products to enable the future of finance. Most notably Compound Labs developed the Compound Protocol, a multi-chain interest rate protocol based on the Ethereum blockchain, that lets developers create new financial applications that are global, safe, and open. The Compound Protocol is one of the largest and most secure DeFi protocols on earth, with billions of dollars in assets earning interest every day.
