Mars protocol is planning something big, First money market in Terra Ecosystem, where users can lend and borrow any form of value.

Banks are here for a long time, even though they served their purpose in our financial journey, deep down, we know something is fundamentally wrong with them.

What is Mars Protocol?

You might already got a fair idea about what mars is trying to achieve. Basically, Mars aims to replace traditional banks using a decentralized model using the Terra blockchain.

There are four fundamental parties involved in Mars Protocol.

  1. Lenders -Those who deposit assets into Mars.
  2. Borrowers with collateral- Those who deposit assets can borrow some of it paying interest.
  3. Borrowers with no collateral: Smart Contracts can borrow assets from Mars if they are approved by the governance. It's one of a kind.
  4. Governance: Stakers of Mars tokens will be participating in governance.
