While decentralized finance is experiencing exponential growth, it is also faced with a major challenge of low utilization of funds. On the one hand, lending and trading are relatively isolated in DeFi, as users cannot take out loans and directly trade within a single lending protocol or decentralized exchange. On the other hand, margin trading as a trillion-dollar market in the crypto world is absent from DeFi — i.e., users can hardly long or short an asset on any DEX.
To resolve this problem and take DeFi to the next level, the Lever protocol was developed. Lever is a decentralized margin trading platform that allows users to lend, borrow and carry out leveraged trading without needing to transfer assets to other third-party platforms. Its innovative features are as follows:
- Enormous liquidity. By introducing external AMMs, like Uniswap, SushiSwap and PancakeSwap, users can open long and short positions on our platform with a wide range of assets including Uniswap (UNI), Synthetix (SNX), Wrapped Bitcoin (wBTC) and Aave.
- High capital efficiency. As both a lending platform and a DEX, Lever provides a trading scenario for loans and also offers margin trading service to traders, which can significantly increase loan frequency and loan size, making high capital efficiency possible. Moreover, Lever allows users to use their tokenized deposit certificates from other lending platforms to earn interest or take out loans for leveraged margin trading.
- Easy-to-use interface. A visualized position management interface is designed to help users easily open or close positions in just one click. Besides, by integrating with TradingView, a professional candlestick chart is also provided to ensure the best trading experience.
