Lending Pools overview
The traditional AMM pool involves pooling two assets, allowing users to trade one or the other, paying a fee to liquidity providers. Although liquidity is always available, this system has the disadvantage of leaving assets unused for long periods of time. For this reason, Folks Finance aims to make this “dormant” liquidity more efficient by making it available to be borrowed. The Liquidity Providers will be able to earn both swapping fees from DEX side and lending interest from Folks Finance as their assets are utilized in both the lending and AMM protocols. This is possible by creating pools of fTokens (read more about them here) instead of the normal assets ordinarily used in Liquidity Pools. This results in an APR for the liquidity provider which is composed of both deposit interest on the lending portion and swap fees on the dex portion.
