Alfprotocol is, in fact, a group of protocols created to provide decentralized capital across and between investors and traders to maximize the provision of liquidity with leverage and without.
The protocol will provide unleveraged products in the form of AlfMM (a decentralized exchange service) and AAlf (an overcollateralized borrowing service). On the other hand, the leveraged liquidity is handled via one of Alfprotocol’s modules that communicates with external protocols such as Solaris, Jet Protocol, and more expected to be added in the future to provide leveraged products up to 200x.
Solana Makes Decentralized High Leverage Possible
High leverage positions were always a problem with other protocols that depended on Ethereum’s “Proof-of-Work” (PoW) blockchain to power them. Solana supports handling high leverage positions due to its robust characteristics, namely transaction volume per second, which significantly reduces transaction time (reaction time) in comparison to the Ethereum network.
The fast reaction time of
