The company has paid over $15 million in interest to date to lenders on its platform, earned from more than 56,000 loans. Some of the notable NFT collections used to secure loans on the platform include Yuga Labs’  Bored Ape Yacht Club, Otherdeed, Mutant Ape Yacht Club, CryptoPunks, Art Blocks, Autoglyphs, Doodles, Pudgy Penguins, Azuki, and Clone X.

They have emerged as an alternative liquidity provider for holders of non-fungible tokens, allowing users to access cash whilst still retaining ownership of their assets.
