Celsius Network is developing an Ethereum-based lending platform. They aim to replace banks as centralized loan providers, and to allow cryptocurrency holders to earn returns by lending. Through the Celsius Wallet, users will be able to lend and borrow coins at significantly reduced rates compared to traditional financial institutions. The Celsius App is available on iOS and Android, and enables users to send funds with no fees.
Credium wants to create a blockchain protocol that will be a database for the credit industry. They hope to use blockchain technology to reduce inefficiencies and increase transparency, while eliminating intermediaries.
The loan servicing and credit industry is hugely important in the United States. However, the difficulties in accessing credit worthiness, and the speculative nature of the industry, lead to inefficiencies.
Credium is launching a utility token called CDM that will be used on its platform.
