GARD x Folks Finance Lending Partnership Announcement

GARD Protocol announces an expansion of its partnership with Folks Finance and the introduction of $GARD, the decentralized stablecoin of Algorand, to Folks Finance’s lending markets.

“When we first partnered with Folks Finance and introduced the $gALGO as a new type of collateral backing $GARD, we simultaneously enhanced DeFi composability and unlocked new opportunities for both of our communities. When a user borrows $GARD against their $gALGO position, they can then take advantage of no-lock stablecoin staking and earn rewards paid out hourly. It’s a great way for folks to earn on top of their already existing Algorand governance positions, or to even participate directly in governance and then borrow/stake directly from their positions on the GARD Protocol. This Partnership will unlock similar opportunities and utility for our decentralized stablecoin, $GARD, and enable folks to unlock the maximum potential of their $ALGO holdings.” – Rylie Rueda, GARD CEO

The lending partnership between GARD Protocol and Folks Finance enables users to deposit $GARD liquidity and start earning a continuous economic return instantly. Users can also borrow $GARD directly from the Folks Finance dApp. The collaboration between protocols includes a disruptive economic lending model designed for soundness and security of the users. This also opens more doors for $GARD holders to take advantage of unique opportunities like $GARD staking rewards and ways to earn yield by providing liquidity, participating in Algorand (DeFi) governance, and more.
