Fringe Finance V2’s integration with Threshold Network introduces the $tBTC token to Fringe’s platform, enhancing the utility and flexibility for Bitcoin holders within the Ethereum ecosystem. Let’s explore what makes Fringe Finance V2 a game-changer and how the integration with Threshold Network benefits users.

Fringe Finance V2: the world’s most diverse DeFi lending and margin trading platform

Fringe Finance V2 elevates the DeFi experience by offering a comprehensive suite of financial services, including lending, borrowing, leveraging, and trading. Notably, the platform:

  • Operates across five blockchains, broadening accessibility and interoperability in the DeFi space.
  • Introduces partial liquidation and advanced oracle models, aiming to improve the safety and efficiency of transactions.
  • Supports over 70 assets, including smaller altcoin assets often overlooked by other DeFi platforms, thereby unlocking capital in both large-cap and speculative crypto assets.

Threshold Network and tBTC: Bridging Bitcoin to Ethereum and EdFi.

The Threshold Network empowers Bitcoin holders to interact with the Ethereum ecosystem through the $tBTC token. Here’s how it works:

  • Users lock Bitcoin in Threshold smart contracts.
  • In exchange, they receive $tBTC tokens on Ethereum, maintaining a 1:1 peg with BTC.
  • This mechanism enables Bitcoin holders to access Ethereum’s DeFi offerings, expanding the utility of Bitcoin beyond its traditional use cases.

Benefits of tBTC Integration on Fringe Finance V2

For $tBTC holders, Fringe Finance V2’s integration brings several advantages, enabling them to:

  • Earn interest on their Bitcoin holdings.
  • Use $tBTC as collateral for borrowing, thereby leveraging their Bitcoin assets without selling them.
  • Amplify exposure and engage in margin trading, opening up new strategies for financial growth.
  • Additionally, Fringe launched an incentive program to boost rewards for lenders on the platform, further encouraging participation in the DeFi ecosystem, and all $tBTC deposits are eligible for it!

Expanding Opportunities for Fringe Users

Adding $tBTC to Fringe Finance V2 introduces a reputable new asset to the platform’s ecosystem. This expansion offers Fringe users more trading, lending, and borrowing options, enhancing the platform’s versatility and appeal. With $tBTC now available on Ethereum and major Layer 2s like Polygon, Optimism, and Arbitrum, Fringe users have unprecedented access to Bitcoin within the Ethereum ecosystem, further bridging the gap between these two leading cryptocurrencies.


Fringe Finance V2’s integration with the Threshold Network and the introduction of $tBTC gives the Bitcoin holders to participate more actively in the Ethereum-based DeFi ecosystem; this collaboration not only increases the utility and flexibility of Bitcoin but also opens up new avenues for financial innovation and growth within the broader cryptocurrency market.
