The Ajna protocol facilitates peer-to-peer secured loans without governance and without external price feeds.
Current lending and borrowing protocols which utilize smart contracts require active governance to set rates and to update contracts, and can rely on external price feeds. Because the pricing of collateral and parameterization of loans are left to subjective decision making through governance rather than market forces, these protocols carry both solvency and liquidity risk. Governance and maintenance overhead create barriers to entry in the market for lending and borrowing of on-chain assets. Ajna solves these problems with its unique design.
