To open a new range of tokenized stocks, derivative assets, and tokenized commodities as collateral markets on EasyFi, Injective Protocol has joined the Layer 2 DeFi lending ecosystem.
The Injective ecosystem is a robust, highly parameterizable DeFi protocol that allows traders to trade a variety of derivatives such as CFDs, perpetual swaps, and more.

These assets in scope will be added to our Synthetic Assets Collateral Markets on https://app.easyfi.network/#/lending/dashboard

Bullet Points

The following are the areas where we will be collaborating:

  • With Injective Protocol’s tokenized derivatives as collateral markets, EasyFi will be introducing new markets to the lending module of the App.
  • EasyFi will collaborate with Injective’s exchange ecosystem to list derivative assets focused on stocks (Stock Futures).
  • Stock futures for Amazon, Tesla, GameStop, and Twitter are currently available on Injective Exchange.
  • EasyFi and Injective will work together to add the above assets’ derivatives to EasyFi as collaterals.
  • Users who own these stock futures derivative tokens will contribute liquidity to EasyFi’s lending protocol’s supply side and borrow assets from the borrow side.
  • The collateralization ratios for each tokenized stock derivative will be determined soon and announced via the various channels.

About Injective Protocol

The Injective Protocol is the first universal DeFi protocol for cross-chain derivatives trading across a wide range of financial products, allowing anyone to create and trade on markets of their choosing without requiring permission, while also earning liquidity mining rewards for network participation. The Protocol’s Injective Chain is a decentralized sidechain relayer network that functions as a layer-2 derivatives platform, trade execution coordinator (TEC), and decentralized orderbook. Tendermint is at the heart of the consensus.
