The CEO of Dharma, Nadav Hollander, compared the company’s new product with Uber, which has changed the way people around the world can order taxis, saying that he wants to let traders receive margin lending in crypto just as easily.
The firm’s product is called Dharma Lever, and it operates through a direct connection to a trader’s wallet. No special software is required for it.
The mechanisms of giving credits is operated by smart contracts. Besides, the company says that the rates on the loans it offers will be lower than fees on exchanges.
