What is Radiant Capital?

Radiant Capital is a multi-chain lending & borrowing protocol built on the Arbitrum Layer-2 chain, allowing users to lend and borrow assets across different chains seamlessly and smoothly.

Radiant Capital’s interface

With the goal of becoming an advanced omni-chain Money Market, Radiant enables users to lend and borrow assets across multiple chains through cross-chain interoperability, which is built on LayerZero via the Stargate interface.

Main Products of Radiant Capital

The main products of Radiant Capital include Borrow and Lend:

  • In the “Lend” product, lenders provide liquidity by depositing their assets into the protocol to earn interest rates and $RDNT rewards. Currently, Radiant supports 5 types of assets including $DAI, $USDC, $USDT, $ETH and $WBTC.

  • In the “Borrow” product, borrowers collateralize their assets to borrow the coins they want. Like lenders, borrowers also earn $RDNT rewards but will have to pay interest rates on their loans.

One small note is that the rewarded $RDNT tokens have a 28-day vesting period. If users want to withdraw earlier, they will incur a 50% penalty fee on the total rewarded amount. This penalty fee will be redistributed to other users.

Radiant Capital’s Revenue

All fees from interest rates (paid by borrowers) and penalty fees (for early reward withdrawals) are split into two portions:

  • 50% goes to the Lenders

  • 50% goes back to the protocol, which will be allocated to RDNT Vesters, Lockers and Liquidity Providers for the RDNT-WETH Pool 2.

Borrowing assets on other chains via the integrated Stargate interface

Unlike many other DApps, Radiant also has Vietnamese language support which helps with accessibility and affinity with Vietnamese users. Although launching after AAVE on Arbitrum, Radiant has developed and attracted TVL quite quickly and is currently leading lending on this layer.
