About Xend Finance

Headquartered in Enugu, Nigeria, Xend Finance provides the tools and platform for a decentralized financial credit union, regardless of geographic location and home country currency.

The platform eliminates traditional finance middle men, while earning up to 15% annual percentage yield on member’s savings. Members can earn multiple levels of interests on their savings (in stable currency and $XEND) by seamlessly swapping their crypto or fiat currency to stable cryptocurrencies and staking – the process of locking up your crypto asset to earn yields – on Lending platforms so members can earn compound interest on their money.

Xend Finance is the first African company to build on Binance Smart Chain.
