Recap of the UniLend Finance AMA with Blockchain Space

On Monday, March 29th, we had the pleasure to welcome to our Telegram chat:

Ayush Garg, The Marketing and Operations Lead for UniLend Finance and Vishal Kothari, The Community Lead for UniLend Finance.

We asked them questions about the development of UniLend Finance.

INTRODUCTION

Q~ Introduce yourself and UniLend Finance project to the community?

A~

Ayush : I am from a Computer Science background with experience working at companies like Uber and Box8. I have been part of the Crypto space since early 2017. I have also worked with the startup Oasis — Initiated by IIM Ahmedabad and Rajasthan Government. I have been part of UniLend’s team since the launch as a lead in Marketing and Operations.

In regards to your question, UniLend is a comprehensive DeFi protocol with the mission to unlock the true potential of decentralized finance. The concept for UniLend came from the simple idea of allowing every token to access DeFi.

Essentially, UniLend Finance will offer every DeFi capability imaginable for any ERC20 asset, including the $30B+ of assets which are currently excluded from DeFi.

In order to achieve that we have done some major partnerships.

Vishal : I started my career in Computer Education, back in 1998. I worked for various IT related businesses and finally realised Cryptocurrency was the path I was most passionate about. Obviously, like everyone else, I started studying and researching crypto heavily. I was fortunate to get into crypto back in 2014. I then became an ambassador in 2019 for several key crypto projects which ultimately led me to joining up with the UniLend team as the official Community Lead.

Everyone is excited about our product going live with Permission Less staking and Gas Efficient Flash Loans going to be live on mainnet tomorrow!

Q~ What makes UniLend Finance different to other DeFi protocols that are already in existence?

A~ So as I said earlier, we are here for revotionalising the Defi space where currently only handful of tokens are participating in the real business use cases.

None of the platform lets lending borrowing and staking occur permissionlessly (some do, but they dont have a real business use for those locked token)

We are taking the movement ahead from where Uniswap brought it to. With our protocol, we are starting an era of inclusive DeFi.

All our products will be permissionless, will support all the type of tokens(elastic supply, derivates and so on)

And with recent development where we stated that we are expanding to BSC, we aim to be multi chain too.

Q~ What are the requirements needed to make use of UniLend Finance lending and borrowing services?

A~ Another great one here!

I believe everyone who is in crypto as this stage holds some or other value token for long term(apart from Eth, wbtc etc)

Currently you can lock them in LP mining pools and earn some APY out of it. But its just one use case, lets say if some want some extra cash, and dont want to sell their dear moon token. There is no platform which does that. You can lend Eth on many platform, but you can’t lend and borrow more than 50+ tokens in top 100.

The Defi we know in current form is filled with gates, we want to remove them, with out permissionless true defi products.

QUESTIONS FROM BITCOINTALK

Q~ Just one more day left to the most. anticipated Product Launch on Mainnet, can you tell us what to expect as $UFT holders on 30th March?

A~ I can see everyone wants to know about mainnet!

$UFT HODLERS can now stake their tokens in our Flash Loans pool and earn rewards from that. Apart from that, they will earn 70% of the Flash Loans also.

And and and, the airdrop feature will enable anyone airdrop some tokens to the pools, so who knows how many UFTs you can earn in just the drops 😉

Q~ How will Unilend Flash-Loans be more cost efficient and advantageous compared to current alternatives?

A~ Our Flash Loans are cost efficient in both manners

  1. Cost of the gas fees compared to existing leading flash loan providers
  2. Fees of the Flash loans

for more details community can go through our medium blog explaining the scenario of the detailed comparison 👇

QUESTIONS FROM TWITTER

Q~ You developed interest in becoming a multi-chain protocol by expanding to BSC, while still supporting Ethereum, are you also considering supporting chains like Polkadot, HECO and the likes to enable me the freedom to utilize my assets for decentralized trading, lending, borrowing, and much more using UniLend?

A~ We are not limited to BSC or ETH for sure, we are planning to move to other chains or layer 2. But that we will announce later. Again all our products on ETH will be live on BSC too.

Nothing more can be said about it now!

Q~ Can you tell us what is the main focus and priority of Unilend this year? What are the plans to boost the value of $UFT in the market?

A~ Our focus currently on the use of staking pools and flash loans. We anticipate that due to less fee and being gas efficient, our flash loans will see a rapid growth in coming weeks providing all the stakers great benefits.

Apart from this we are not very far from our Flagship Lending and Borrowing product too. Once dust settles for mainnet, you will hear about that too from us.

All these activities and our product will help in getting more value to the UFT token in future.

Q~ Regarding partnerships and collaboration, i see you not stopping, new and exciting partnerships announced every week and more in the future, but I’m more interested in the partnership with Mirror protocol that was announced in January, because mAssets are significantly less volatile than crypto assets, when will users be able to lend and borrow Google, Amazon, and Tesla stock on the Unilend platform, when should we expect this integration?

A~ Yes, our partnership with Mirror is being celebrated greatly because for the 1st time, you can hold, Tesla, Amazon, Alphabate and other major stock’s mirror tokens in our pools. Also you can lend and borrow with these token without any need to sell them.

We also have gold, silver, oil etc derivative with Fantom. So we are brining real world utilities to our permissionless ecosystem.

QUESTIONS FROM TELEGRAM

Q~ How do you plan to spread awareness about your project in countries/regions where English is not spoken well like Indonesia, Vietnam, India, Bangladesh and Iran, do you have local communities for them to make them better understand about your project?

A~ Great question

A~ Announcement channel

Q~ Do the token holders have right to participate in the governance of the project? On what kind of decisions can they vote on about the project?

A~ Yes, we will be launching permission less governance where holders can participate in various governance aspects of the protocol. They can even take decisions related to future developments. We will be slowly giving up control completely to the community via UFT tokens

Q~ Where is the roadmap for this year? Can you share with us your main priority for this year and do you have plan to list on big exchange?

A~ We are already listed on World’s biggest exchange Binance:

Our major priority right now is on the releasing our Flash Loans Mainnet so that early $UFT stakers have great benefit of it by getting the staking rewards as well as 70% of the portion of the flash loans fees will be also rewarded to the stakers and remaining 30% of the flash loans fees will be used to buy $UFT from market and burn it to making $UFT a deflationary token while rewarding UFT Stakers
