Lendefi is a leading blockchain-based protocol, offering undercollateralized secured loans that can be used to buy digital assets. The Lendefi protocol is a cornerstone of the burgeoning decentralized finance and crypto-collateralized lending industries. In addition to benefiting borrowers, Lendefi enables cryptocurrency holders to enjoy generous returns for lending their stablecoin assets without incurring custodial risk. The Lendefi team is growing steadily while endeavoring to provide best-in-class service to its community of crypto borrowers and lenders.
Founding CEO Robin Dey has decided to step down for personal reasons and the management team lead by Jim Stathopoulos has appointed Scott Schulz as CEO.
Scott will lead future growth, technical development, and user onboarding to the Lendefi protocol, entering a project already in Alpha production and Dev testing underway.
Following this decision, Scott Schulz released a statement in which he said: “I’m proud to have had the opportunity to lead the Lendefi protocol. It’s exciting to enter a project that is deep into the development of a new protocol for under-collateralized lending, a protocol that is not yet available in the Defi ecosystem. I’m confident that Lendefi will realize its goals and onboard the next wave of decentralized finance users wanting the trustless custodial experience.”
