Introducing Rates Arbitrage to DeFi
In today's crypto ecosystem Arbitrage is possible in spot / futures markets, but Rates Arbitrage is not possible with today’s lend/borrow protocols. This article discusses how Infinity’s enterprise-grade risk management system enables tokens and credit risk to be composable, leading to a revolution in the DeFi ecosystem.
