We believe that structured DeFi products should have no barriers to entry. Our mission is to build novel, easy-to-use applications that allow anyone to manage risk in a volatile asset class.
The idea for BarnBridge was originally conceived in 2019. At the time, MakerDAO started to garner mainstream awareness and capture the imagination of what is now the DeFi community.
A year later, as 60% of global debt was yielding less than 1% and over $15 trillion of global debt was yielding negative rates, capital continued moving into higher risk yield streams.
TradFi continues to experience a historic uptick in aggregate debt levels while yield and interest rates continue to plummet. Meanwhile, yield on the DeFi-equivalent instruments continued to dwarf the menial rates offered by legacy TradFi products.
The need for familiar TradFi derivatives to exist in the DeFi ecosystem has never been greater. And thus, BarnBridge was born to address the essential need for managing risk.
BarnBridge products are built upon the principle that gatekeepers shouldn’t exist for access to structured derivative instruments. We level the playing field in decentralized finance.
Security is our top priority. Our smart contracts get audited by the world’s leading firms and are well-known in the industry to be one of the safest in DeFi.
Instead of building in an echo chamber, we seek feedback from target audiences, validate hypotheses, and build products that have a real-world need.
The DeFi landscape moves at the speed of light. By being comfortable with change, we learn and adapt our core products to stay a step ahead of the curve.
