What is BarnBridge?

BarnBridge is a risk tokenizing protocol. It allows hedging yield sensitivity and price volatility by accessing debt pools on other DeFi protocols, and transforming single pools into multiple assets with varying risk/return characteristics. BarnBridge idea and whitepaper were originally conceived in Q2 2019, but started getting built a year later, in May 2020, and was officially introduced in September 2020. BarnBridge aims at facilitating the transition to a decentralized financial system addressing some key aspects of institutional activity, such as risk management and access to fixed income instruments. BarnBridge has currently launched with its SMART Yield product. It allows users to tranche out the yield from the debt pools of other projects, such as Aave, Compound, Yearn Finance to normalize the risk curve by creating derivatives for risk mitigation. Users are able to buy junior or senior tokens which represent tranches. Junior token holders provide liquidity & buy risk from senior bond investors. The risk here is variable rate annuities going below expected level. Investors that buy senior bonds will have a guaranteed yield/interest rate for the life of bond. At the same time, juniors will benefit from the extra rewards generated by tokens locked by seniors in cases where the variable APY of the underlying lending protocol (including the governance token rewards) are higher than the weighted average guaranteed yields of current seniors. It is expected that the senior positions will have more capital in a pool than the junior ones so the yield may be split by them accordingly. Junior tranches are ERC-20 fungible tokens, senior tranches are ERC-721 non-fungible tokens. $BOND, the native token of BarnBridge, is an ERC-20 governance token. It can be used for staking in the DAO and voting on the proposals.


How to use BarnBridge?

To start using BarnBridge, go to app.barnbridge.com. It opens the SMART Yield product page. Users will be able to choose between markets, assets, and tranches. For the best experience, it is recommended to use the desktop version of the app.
