Solstice: Everything Lending
Updated: Mar 4
In classical antiquity, the Celestial Solstice was harnessed by the Ancient Greeks as a means of navigating the vast, dangerous, and complex Earth.
In the technological present, Silo’s Solstice will enable NEETS, degens, and brainlets alike to navigate the not so vast, equally dangerous, and far more complex decentralized lending space.
What is Solstice?
Growth in Defi has created abundant opportunities to generate profits. However these opportunities are often complex to understand and risky to make use of.
Solstice aims to be the go-to knowledge hub for lending to turn unwary investors into wary ones. Proper education will allow users to fully understand lending platforms in order to maximize earnings and manage risks.
If you have any question, reach out to the team and community in #solstice discord channel.
What we have published so far
So far two series have been started with several more in the works:
“Lender Beware” series: a deep dive into the different lending approaches on the market and how this dictates lenders’ risk
“History of Exploits” series: an overview of lending platform exploits and what can be learnt from them
These are just examples of the type of content we aim to publish.
Our goal is to build Solstice into the go-to knowledge hub of everything lending, and for that we need your help!
You can contribute
At Solstice we are looking for high quality contributions that can educate the broader crypto community about lending.
The form of the content is up to the contributor - the only requirements are that it is high quality, educational, and non-inflammatory. Linking back to Silo is recommended but not essential for your work to be accepted.
Content format accepted
For now, we are only accepting contributions in English.
Some examples could be:
Article - an article exploring general risks such as liquidations
AMA - organize an AMA with the Silo Team (and perhaps some of our partners) for any burning questions you or the community may have
Interview - organize an interview with the Silo Team and discuss your thoughts on lending, the Silo project, and the general crypto space
Video - explains the mechanism behind Silo’s bridged lending pair and how this builds upon issues in shared-pool and lending pair platforms
Twitter thread - a thread exploring yield strategies that could be implemented using the Silo platform
