A compound chain will enable the movement of assets and liquidity between different blockchains participants. Users of various networks will have access to lending on other blockchains. Users will be able to provide funds on one network to use the service of another network. For example, a user on the Solana blockchain will get a loan in tokens stored on the Polkadot network.
Our team is actively working on a test network Compound Chain with a limited set of features. the launch is scheduled for next quarter, and documentation for developers and validators will appear in the coming weeks. Together we will reinvent finance!

A new token, CASH, will be introduced, which will be used to pay transaction fees. The network will be managed by the existing structure of Compound Governance using COMP tokens on Ethereum. According to the Defi Pulse portal, the Compound protocol keeps the third position in deposited assets’ volume. At the moment, the project has assets worth $1.82 billion.
At the end of November 2020, positions worth $89 million were liquidated in the Compound protocol due to the Coinbase price oracle’s failure for the DAI token.
