BitGo added support for cTokens; now, users can earn interest from the Compound protocol while their balance is stored at one of world’s most trusted custodians.

Compound DAI Rate Model Update

Following stability fee increases by MakerDAO, the Compound Dai interest rate model was updated; borrowing rates are now 5-20%, based on utilization in the Dai market.

Friday, we also unveiled our new brand, homepage, and about page.

This new look means we can iterate quickly, and consistently, while staying true to our value proposition: “compound your crypto.” We hope you’re as excited as we are 📈.
