Launched in 2017, Compound was co-founded by Robert Leshner and Geoff Hayes to allow users to borrow, lend and earn interest on cryptocurrency in peer-to-peer transactions through a decentralized protocol. Since then, Compound has grown to become one of the cornerstones of the DeFi industry and, as of today, Compound is the world’s largest DeFi protocol, with more than $600 million worth of crypto assets locked in it.

Unlike other cryptocurrencies or coins, COMP is a digital token, referred to as a “governance token.” This is because COMP grants its holders the right to vote on important decisions that affect the protocol, from a technical upgrade on the platform to the decision to incorporate a new crypto asset.
