Published date: April 22 2021

Hello Centrifuge World!

Wow. What a month. We’ve had some of the biggest news to come out of Centrifuge so far, so here’s a round-up of events, so you don’t get FOMO.

To date, DeFi has mostly been a playground for crypto savvy individuals, but with Centrifuge we’re breaking down this barrier by making it easy for businesses to bring their financial assets on-chain and tap into on-chain liquidity.Going back to the ROOTS of why DeFi was invented — this means access to finance is actually being democratized.

Our Maker Integration goes LIVE and the first loan is drawn! 

The team has been working very hard for a couple of years to get our Maker integration live, and it finally passed the executive vote and is now on Mainnet! The first Asset Originator to finance a loan via the pool is New Silver, they now have an extra 5M line of credit. This is just the beginning, starting small and growing steadily over time. Centrifuge is currently working with six companies active in the MakerDAO governance process and together we plan to scale RWAs to back MCD up to 300MM over the next 12 months!

AMA with the legends of Real World Finance at MakerDAO

So to get ahead of the curve and find out the true implications this has for the future of DeFi and finance in general, join Lucas & Lea from Team Centrifuge, and Sebastian Derivaux, William Remor & Phil Chang will represent Team Maker!
