Ergo-Lend is a new paradigm for lending. The goal is to leverage blockchain technology to create a global lending platform. A decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) will manage the platform.
The Ergo Manifesto
"In the eyes of the original broad community vision, the tools of a cryptocurrency should allow people to do economic activity whatever the business size, geographic location, or interest rates set by big players."
Loan Cost & Availability
Our financial system is not designed to provide small loans at reasonable rates. This is true at every level, from large banks to small microfinance institutions.
The central problem for unbanked borrowers is getting a loan.
Be your own bank. Trustless peer to peer payments and privacy are extremely important.
Operational & Underwriting Costs
Underwriting costs are more expensive for people in rural areas. With ubiquitous cell phone access, financial services can be an app away.
Remove the Middlemen
With lower borrowing costs, smaller loans become viable. This opens up a large, untapped market of borrowers. And, it is not only borrowers that can benefit.
Ergopad has the honor of facilitating the IDO of Ergo-Lend. Ergo-Lend will be a person-to-person (P2P) lending platform with easy to use tools to borrow and lend money.

Ergo-Lend started for the ErgoHack 2 hackathon and we just kept going! We hope to help overcome some issues for the billions of unbanked people around the world. This is some of what we have in various stages of implementation.

ErgoHack II event - Ergo-Lend took first place! This got us rolling with a first version of the UI and a large portion of the ergoscript required to function.
End of Feb, 2022
We completed a full end-to-end test using fully functional ergoscript contracts, scala backend and nextjs front end.
