“We are delighted to be working with Cred to help scale their efforts to
more markets and users around the world through the power of the Binance
Chain, which has a one-second block time and will ensure transactions
and interactions by Cred’s users will be fast, efficient and
effortless,” said Ted Lin, Chief Growth Officer of Binance.

Cred is a licensed lender, based in California and has secured over $300
million in lending capital. Cred enables crypto wallet providers,
custodians, exchanges and crypto application providers the ability to
offer some of the most competitive lending and borrowing rates in the
industry. This year, Cred has announced partnerships with several
influential organizations and custodians in the crypto community. Cred

the option to rollover assets for additional periods. Customers receive
the best rates when staking Cred’s LBA token. No account minimum is
needed and interest is paid out in Stablecoin. The principal is paid
back in the crypto amounts that were initially received.

“Binance has been a strong partner and investor from Cred’s inception
and we are very happy to support Binance Chain and continue to
collaborate with Binance to bring decentralized finance to everyone in a
sustainable way,” said Dan Schatt, Co-Founder of Cred. “We look forward
to continuing the Cred-Binance partnership.”
