logoHARD Protocol (HARD)

A Permissionless and Decentralized Cross-chain Money Market.
  • HARD Protocol is a decentralized money market built on Kava, enabling the lending and borrowing of cross-chain assets.
  • Initially, HARD Protocol supports supply-side deposits for BTC, XRP, BNB, BUSD, and USDX. Going forward, the platform will allow overcollateralized borrowing for supported assets.
  • The HARD token is the native governance token of the platform and has the following current and planned use cases:
    • Liquidity mining rewards: the HARD token is rewarded to users who deposit and/or borrow supported assets.
    • Governance voting: HARD token holders can participate in platform governance voting and earn HARD rewards.
  • All HARD tokens distributed as rewards are locked by a smart contract. Users that claim HARD tokens with longer vesting schedules will receive more tokens. The exact options for token redemptions are subject to governance voting.

1. What is HARD Protocol (HARD)?

HARD Protocol is a cross-chain money market for digital assets that aims to provide the ability to lend, borrow, and earn with a wide variety of assets including BTC, XRP, BNB, BUSD, KAVA, USDX, and others.

The platform is built on the interoperable Kava blockchain that provides cross-chain bridges, Chainlink oracles, security from the Tendermint consensus mechanism, and other infrastructure designed as a foundation for DeFi applications and services.

Core to the HARD Protocol is the HARD token, a governance token that enables holders to have a say in the on-going management and evolution of the platform. The HARD token is used for platform governance voting, as a reward for lenders and borrowers and for KAVA token stakers on the platform.
