What is Tectonic?
Tectonic is a decentralised non-custodial algorithmic-based money market protocol that allows users to participate as liquidity suppliers or borrowers. Suppliers provide liquidity to the market to earn a passive income, while borrowers are able to borrow liquidity in an over-collateralized fashion.
