Enjin Invests in Unbound Finance to Bring UND Stablecoin to Efinity and Polkadot
SINGAPORE, June 22, 2021 — Leading non-fungible token (NFT) ecosystem developer Enjin has invested in Unbound Finance to increase liquidity on Efinity, Enjin’s upcoming NFT parachain built on Polkadot.
The move comes after Unbound recently announced a $5.8M investment round from Pantera Capital and Michael Arrington, founder of TechCrunch, among a host of other leading venture capital firms.
“Unbound is exploring an innovative new form of lending that allows yield farmers to convert their collateral into UND, which they will be able to spend on Efinity. Working with Unbound will help ensure persistent liquidity on Efinity and enable DeFi participants to enjoy opportunities within Enjin’s growing NFT ecosystem”, said Maxim Blagov, CEO of Enjin.
Tarun Jaswani, Founder and CEO of Unbound Finance said, “We have built UND to be one of the most decentralized stablecoins on the market. With strong fundamentals, Efinity users will leverage the benefit of a fast, borderless stablecoin which will act as a great fiat on and off-ramp bridge. UND will also open up the benefits of DeFi through Unbound Finance.”
Yield farmers can use liquidity pool tokens created from providing liquidity to AMMs as collateral on the Unbound platform to borrow UND. This UND can then be used to purchase NFTs on the Efinity network.
Unbound, the creator of the first-ever cross-chain, decentralized stablecoin UND, has already integrated with 12 Automated Market Maker platforms, including Uniswap, PancakeSwap, SushiSwap, and Balancer.
Enjin has been working alongside Unbound since its launch, and UND is slated to be among the first decentralized stablecoins on Efinity, Enjin’s upcoming cross-chain network that will support NFTs from any blockchain.
Key features of Unbound include:
- Liquidation-free liquidity provision system
- A no-debt position created when assets are minted
- Cross-chain decentralized stablecoin UND, and other synthetic assets such as uETH
- Liquidity Lock contracts designed to be permissionless and support AMMs like Uniswap, Balancer, and Mooniswap
