Atlendis Labs Launches Atlendis Protocol V2 and Opens First Pool

Atlendis V2 new features bring real-world business use cases to DeFi credit markets.

Atlendis V2 Announcement

PARIS, May 16, 2023 - Today, Atlendis announced another milestone with the launch of the Atlendis protocol V2 on Polygon mainnet. The first borrower to open a liquidity pool on Atlendis V2 is Banxa, the leading on-and-off ramp solution for Web3. The Banxa pool opens with a $2M capacity in USDT.

Since launching a year ago, the Atlendis protocol has surpassed $6M in cumulative repaid loans and over 11,000 unique lenders.

What challenges does Atlendis address?

The limitations and high costs of borrowing associated with TradFi solutions mean that SMBs have often been excluded from obtaining loans and other non-dilutive forms of financing, negatively impacting not only their operations and cash flow, but also their ability to invest and grow. 

Atlendis harnesses the power of DeFi to reduce the complexity of financing for real-world businesses with proven track records that have historically been underserved by: 

  • Unlocking new sources of liquidity by connecting real-world businesses to DeFi. 
  • Allowing borrowers to access innovative financing use cases and solutions without the barriers of high costs and third-party intermediaries. 
  • Enabling small businesses to borrow funds to meet their evolving liquidity needs without having to tap into cash reserves or to open their capital to investors.

What are Atlendis’ Revolving Credit Line Products?

Atlendis' order book model enables lenders to set their desired lending rate, while giving borrowers access to a fixed borrowing rate determined by the market. 

Through the creation of tailored lending pools, Atlendis offers Revolving Credit Lines (RCLs) to entities with short-term liquidity needs: 

  • Borrowers have the flexibility to access their line of credit and borrow funds at any time up to a predetermined maximum borrowing limit. 
  • When the borrower uses their credit line, a new borrowing cycle is initialized. 
  • If the borrower doesn't use their entire credit line and the loan hasn't matured yet, they can still borrow more funds from their liquidity pool. 
  • The borrowed amount plus interest must be paid by the maturity date. 
  • Once the borrower repays the borrowed amount plus interest at maturity, they can start a new borrow cycle. 

What’s new in Atlendis V2?

Atlendis V2 represents a significant upgrade to the RCL product in Atlendis V1, enhancing the usage and adaptability of the protocol. Key improvements include the ability to tailor the protocol to the unique needs of borrowers, while also offering more flexibility for lenders. Maintaining essential features such as decentralized rate discovery and NFT positions, Atlendis V2 addresses a wider range of financing use cases, unlocking new opportunities to better serve lenders and borrowers alike.

New features include: 

  • Flexible exit for lenders: lenders no longer need to wait for the end of a loan cycle and repayment of their position to exit the loan cycle.
  • Ability for borrowers to roll over their loan: borrowers can rollover their loan without having to repay the totality of their loans after each cycle.
  • Liquidity pool compliance options – permissionless or Know Your Business (KYB) and Know Your Customer (KYC) gated pools.
  • Additional information and increased due diligence on each borrower of the protocol.
