it comes from the people borrowing your money, why are they borrowing your money? to gain leveraged exposure to cryptoassets or to provide liquidity to protocols with higher yield than their APR, why do they want leveraged exposure to crypoassets, well there are a few reasons: fiat hedge, speculation on the value of governance tokens, speculation on the value of utility tokens, and actual demand for usage of the above two types of tokens

when you deposit funds into compound or another money market, those funds are collected in a giant reserve that others can borrow from, but only if they have collateral that has greater value than what they borrow (usually denominated in the deposited asset, but optionally denominated in fiat, since all these money market protocols have fiat price oracles, compounds is centralized and attackable with liquidity attacks, but that's beside the point), the collateral must have more value than what is borrowed so that the loan is guaranteed to be paid back, which can happen in 2 cases: 1) the borrower pays back the loan at their leisure on no fixed schedule, this is possible as long as the value of their deposited collateral doesn't fall underneath a predefined value (unique to each collateral and depends on how much you borrow) 2) their position becomes undercollateralized (their collateral has declined in market value to a sufficiently low point) and they become "liquidated", their collateral is sold for units of the debt (for example if you deposit ETH and borrow USDC, then your ETH collateral will be sold for USDC at a discount to "liquidators" willing buyers of your collateral), to pay the debt and restore the reserve pool to its original state

in short, interest payments are automatically generated if there are borrowers from the pool that you deposited into, thats how money markets work: people borrow shit, and they pay interest on what they borrowed, interest rates are higher for assets that are more in demand to be borrowed "the price of money goes up as the demand for money goes up, and vice versa" just like any market

> but only if they have collateral that has greater value than what they borrow

I dont get this anon. Why would anyone borrow if they already have assets of greater value?

this is called "longing" fren, i didn't lose the LINK i started with, i had to temporarily deposit it and borrow USDC "against" it, that is what is known as a "collateralized loan" if they borrower doesn't pay back the loan then their collateral gets "liquidated" to cover the face value (or as much as possible of the face value) of the loan, collateralized lending is one of the most beautifully applicable usecases of smart contracts, the next being derivatives, parametric insurance, gambling, and so on

Fuck. Whoever designed this system must be a literal genius

>> No.26053394

>Why would anyone borrow if they already have assets of greater value?
because these loans have to be "overcollateralized" so that the amount borrowed from the protocol can always be covered by liquidations, if the loans weren't overcollateralized then it's possible that a volatile market could cause the collateral against which certain loans are borrowed to become less valuable than the face value of the loan, meaning if the borrower can't pay back the loan, the lender cannot be made whole through the sale of the borrowers collateral (liquidation)

Sometimes I want to take a margin position on kraken but they will send me a cancellation saying insufficient margin. sometimes that's because my position side was too big but other times they ran out of collateral in their margin pool. They can fix that by taking out loans from defi. I try to get gains, they try to blow me out, and the person receiving the interest wins at low risk.

UBI will be feasible, but you will only be eligible if enter into a death agreement, the word "mortgage" will be repurposed for this new type of smart contract: if it can be proven that you have sired more than 2 children AND you receive UBI then you and your kin will receive the death penalty until there are only two progeny left, termination starts with you, then your concubines, then your youngest

>termination starts with you, then your concubines, then your youngest
Obviously this is all handled automatically through contracts. A small portion of your UBI is held back as collateral to pay for hitmen if needed. You can redeem the collateral by installing a cyanide module.
