👀 From the Beak
Protocol security rating agency DeFi Safety re-evaluated Goldfinch’s security rating following the publication of Goldfinch’s updated Developer Docs, with the new 93% rating putting the protocol as one of the most secure in the industry. The report specifically calls out the strength of Goldfinch’s documentation on flashloan attack vectors and frontrunning, among other strengths. View the full report on the DeFi Safety site here.
Gemini’s Cryptopedia published an article by Co-Founder and Warbler Labs CTO Blake West, “Goldfinch (GFI): Crypto Loans for the Real World.” The piece covers what sets Goldfinch apart from other crypto lending protocols, the different parties involved in its functionality, how the ‘trust through consensus’ mechanism works, and how the protocol allows access to capital in a way that is largely inaccessible in the traditional lending industry. Read more in the Cryptopedia.
GIP-10, the governance proposal to remove the 12-month GFI unlock schedule of Senior Pool Liquidity Mining, has passed Snapshot voting and moved on to the Governance Council approval phase. The proposal was written to ensure the changes will not hurt existing FIDU stakers in any way compared to new stakers, and to ensure a controlled release of GFI instead of a significant jump at one time. Learn more in the governance proposal, or view the voting results on Snapshot.
📰 Goldfinch in the Media
Crypto author and Variant Investor Spencer Noon covered Goldfinch in a thread on the shift of stablecoin yields to credit protocols that offer off-chain investment. The thread featured and was inspired by an article written earlier in the week, “The Crypto Loan Economy,” by analysts Jack and 0xlol for Polygon analytics. The article covered how DeFi is changing the history of the world’s lending-borrowing dynamic, risk assessment, and Goldfinch’s design amongst other credit protocols.

How often do I receive interest after investing as a Backer in the Borrower Pools? Do I receive interest daily across a week?
You will receive interest whenever Borrowers make repayments. Assume that there are two Backers to a Borrower Pool, and a Borrower pays back $100 in interest payments. This interest will be divided amongst all the Backers in the pool i.e. everyone will receive $50 (since there are two Backers).
