Crypto is better than bills
What is COMP?
Users are paid in COMP tokens to incentivise both borrowing and lending. Compound’s move to reward both borrowers and lenders started the yield farming craze in DeFi, since any kind of activity on the platform would be rewarded with COMP, and users could maximise their returns by switching to the most lucrative assets to borrow/lend. As they receive COMP, this also makes them eligible to vote on changes to the platform and influence various parameters and decisions taken by Compound. Since Compound began distributing its governance token in this way, many other DeFi initiatives have begun to do the same.
