The Venus token enables the Venus Protocol; an algorithmic-based money market system designed to bring a complete DeFi lending and credit system onto the Binance blockchain. The Venus token (XVS) is designed to be a fair launch cryptocurrency, without any designated allocations to a founding team. XVS tokens can only be earned by contributing liquidity to the protocol. Venus allows users to deposit collateral to the network that can then be borrowed by other users that are required to place tokens as collateral. This creates a secure lending environment with the lender receiving an interest payment that is distributed per block, and the borrower paying an interest on the cryptocurrency they borrowed.
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.
