Maple protocol is a decentralized corporate debt marketplace. The protocol enables corporate and institutional borrowers to access capital-efficient finance from Liquidity Pools. The Liquidity Pools accept deposits from Liquidity Providers and lend these out to a portfolio of institutional Borrowers with trusted reputations to earn a fixed return. Each Liquidity Pool is managed by seasoned investors with strong reputations (Pool Delegates), who earn fees by creating and managing Liquidity Pools on Maple. Each Pool Delegate manages their Liquidity Pool by assessing a Borrower’s reputation and track record before allowing the Pool to lend to them. The protocol is supported by Maple Tokens (MPL) that enable holders to participate in governance, share in fee revenues, and stake insurance to Liquidity Pools.
