Platform Functionalities

The Fringe Finance platform consists of the following facilities, offering different functionalities:


  • ​Fringe Lending: A lending facility that accepts a wide range of collateral asset types and multiple capital (borrowing) assets. It:
    • Rewards lenders for depositing (whitelisted) capital assets made available to be lent to borrowers and traders.
    • Allows borrowers to take out over-collateralized loans against whitelisted collateral assets.
    • Allows liquidators to liquidate part of a borrower’s loan that falls below minimum collateralization levels.


  • Fringe Staking: Allows FRIN token holders and other asset holders to stake assets to earn staking rewards. Fringe Staking supports multiple staking programs to incentivize users to participate in various ways within the Fringe Ecosystem. The system pays rewards to staked positions. Staking rewards are paid from the Rewards Pool for each staking program.
  • Fringe Amplify: A leveraged trading facility that allows traders to gain leveraged long exposure to an asset in relation to its USD price.
  • Fringe Margin Trade: A leveraged trading facility that allows traders to gain leveraged exposure to an asset pair.
  • USB Stablecoin: A facility where borrowers mint and borrow stablecoins against their altcoin collateral and where USB stablecoin holders can stake USB to earn interest.
  • Governance: Allows a Project to apply for listing on the USB Stablecoin platform. I.e., where USB Collateral Safes accept the project’s ERC-20 token as collateral against which borrowers can mint USB.
