Zerion - Sponsor Bounty at ETHDenver 2019!

Company/Project Name and Description

Zerion is building a trustless bank for Decentralized Finance (DeFi). We aim at transforming the decentralized finance experience to drive the next wave of adoption of blockchain-based finance. Instead of relying on a third party to manage their assets (such as through traditional banking and existing FinTech), Zerion users keep full control over their assets and execute common banking services with minimal fees.

Bounty 1 Overview: The best financial product for DeFi

Description: 2019 promises to be the year of decentralized finance (DeFi). To win this bounty, create a novel application of programmable financial primitives. Design your own trustless financial product on top of Ethereum by using protocols such as MakerDAO, Uniswap, Kyber, etc. The final product should be a DApp or set of smart contracts that integrate at least one of the DeFi protocols.

Examples: 1. Arbitrage of MakerDAO borrowing (0.5% on DAI borrowing) and Compound (~3% on DAI lending) within a single transaction. 2. Decentralized Exchanges liquidity aggregator — a smart contract that finds the best available rate through 0x, Kyber, Uniswap, etc., and makes a trade. 3. Insurance for MakerDAO CDPs — a smart contract that automatically deposits ETH to risky CDPs to save them from liquidation for a small commission.

Prize Amount: $1,000
