is powered by Maple Finance. Institutional Yield, with DeFi access. It is a new decentralized protocol that extends Maple’s expertise in institutional digital asset lending to offer broad access to high quality, secure yields. The launch combines the strength and security of Maple’s renowned lending infrastructure with the flexibility and inclusivity of DeFi. The Syrup platform enables users permissionless access to secured, institutional lending for the first time. By depositing USDC into the platform, users receive LP tokens (syrupUSDC) and begin earning yield immediately. All of the yield generated by Syrup is sourced from secured loans to the largest institutions in crypto, fully collateralized with digital assets. Syrup leverages the power of Maple’s lending infrastructure to provide unmatched risk adjusted yield. The combination of Maple’s robust smart contract infrastructure with its institutional network and underwriting framework that has originated $4bn in loans to date, ensures Syrup users can access high quality yields with confidence.
