IPOR Protocol – Building the foundational layer for DeFi credit markets | Fundamentals ep.60

Article hero image

In this episode of the Fundamentals podcast, I’m joined by Darren Camas and Dimitar Dinev, the Co-Founders of IPOR Protocol. IPOR is a non-custodial exchange for interest rate swaps built on Ethereum.

Listen to the episode:

As a DeFi protocol, IPOR refers to a series of smart contracts that provide a benchmark interest rate and enable users to access Interest Rates Derivatives on the Ethereum blockchain. IPOR is an abbreviation for Inter Protocol Over-block Rate. It derives its name from major indices from traditional finance like the LIBOR - the London Interbank Offered Rate, and the SOFR - Secured Overnight Financing Rate and adapts it to DeFi.

We discuss what IPOR is, how it works, its core value proposition, and its position within the market. Also, we dive into IPOR’s financials, the upcoming v2 of the protocol, the team behind the project, exciting upcoming developments, and more!
