Algorand recently updated its Virtual Machine (AVM) that simplifies and reinforces smart contracts to build new dApps. In addition, Folks Finance, the capital market protocol, recently announced using AVM for its DeFI operations.
The integration will see Folks Finance using the Algorand Virtual Machine to develop a decentralized money market protocol. The protocol will offer profitable, low-cost, and secure financial solutions to users. The recent updates and announcements have boosted Algorand’s market popularity, causing traders to look for a viable Algorand future.
Algorand, the PPoS (pure proof-of-stake) layer-1 protocol, was released in 2019 to quickly establish a global user base. The protocol keeps its infrastructure scalable, decentralized, secure, low-cost, and quick using the PPoS mechanism. Since it is forkless, it can avoid prevalent scalability issues blockchains face when moving to layer-2.
With such features on display, Folks Finance using AVM for its DeFi solutions seems natural. The Algorand Virtual Machine will play a big role in the automated, disintermediated, and decentralized space of smart contracts and blockchains.
Algorand offers trustless, contactless smart contracts which are safe from errors and are executed on-chain. The contracts are written in TEAL (Transaction Execution Approval Language) and Python via the PyTeal library. The AVM will interpret TEAM programs via opcodes (set of operation codes) to integrate smart signatures and smart contracts’ logic.
Currently, Folks Finance needs to consider features of adopted blockchains and virtual machines before developing a dApp. This is why the AVM analyzes the consensus protocol on which the technology is developed. Since Algorand is a permissionless PPoS that is green, economical, and sustainable, it does not use high computational power like Bitcoin’s PoW mechanism.
Folks Finance helps users earn interest on deposits and borrow assets by verifying the deposits. On paper, users can start earning compounded interest after depositing the assets. Users can borrow supported assets with accrued interest in real block-time by offering collateral.
Similar to the Algorand model, Folks Finance also offers its governance to users and the community. In addition, the platform aims to offer perks to every user involved when it comes to fairness, earnings, and service.
Folks Finance will use low-cost, high-speed, and fixed transactions among decentralized money markets without scaling to other blockchains, unlike most ETH-based projects. Folks Finance will develop a financial business model that ensures the protocol’s economic viability with AVM’s assistance. It involves risk-adjusted credit, powerful incentive mechanisms, siloed money market liquidity pools, and health factors.
Using the functionalities will help Folks Finance elevate its reach while assisting the DeFi sector immensely.
