GBOND Lending (Unlocked GBOND Utility)

When a user unlocks their GBOND (see heading 7.1. above for details) they can choose from options which present them with utility for their credit rights.

The first of these is the GBOND lending protocol, where users can borrow against their credit rights. After unlocking their GBOND users can deposit GBOND into the Lending Protocol and borrow USDC against the amount of GBOND deposited.

USDC is a stablecoin issued by Centre; a joint venture of Circle Internet Financial Limited and Coinbase Global, Inc., and the value of USDC is pegged to the value of the US dollar. Users may deposit as much GBOND as they wish into the Lending Protocol to borrow against.

Borrowing Limits and Interest Rates in the Lending Protocol

Initially the borrowing rate of USDC within Galaxy DAO will be set at 5%.

GBOND is issued at a rate of 1 GBOND/1 USD, which means users can borrow 0.05 USDC for every 1 GBOND they deposit into the Lending Protocol.

The USDC a user borrows through the Protocol will be from Galaxy DAO’s supply of USDC. Galaxy DAO plan to raise the borrowing limit as the overall earnings of the DAO increase. The latest borrowing limit (rate) can be checked on the Boardroom platform (released late August 2023.
