ETHLend is part of the so called decentralised financial products, which are developed using blockchain technology and smart contracts to promote transparency and decentralisation within financial applications. ETHLend is a lending peer to peer marketplace where users can borrow money using their crypto assets as collateral. With over 20 million USDlending volume generated last year, it is amongst the most popular blockchain-based finance applications according to the annual report.

“ETHLend provides a service that is quite useful for the cryptocurrency holders. Now they went further by offering BTC interoperability – representing the king of all cryptocurrencies for most people,” praised Jun Gong, Co-Founder of

Since the rise of blockchain applications, developers were in recourse to choose the blockchain protocol to build their applications without the ability to interact between blockchains, that is why Bitcoin interoperability is a major step in decentralised finance. Aave, as one of the early adopters of Ethereum protocol, is now able to provide a bridge between Ethereum and Bitcoin protocols. Through ETHLend, users can now use Bitcoin holdings as a collateral to borrow funds when they want to avoid selling their holdings in the hope of an upside of the crypto market.

“Economically, the introduction of Bitcoin to the marketplace is a momentous development in the crypto-lending industry as the Bitcoin market capitalisation floats above 50 billion USD. For the first time in the short history of crypto-lending, borrowers can propose their own interest rates for Bitcoin loans in a peer-to-peer marketplace instead of relying on lender dictated markets,” says Stani Kulechov, CEO of Aave, adding that, “by providing Bitcoin – in a decentralised fashion – we ensure more transparency, security and competitive interest rates to the crypto lending market. The potential is enormous: we might even see a formation of a global Bitcoin lending rate due to the scale and transparency involved in ETHLend.”
