What is Port Finance?

Port Finance is a non-custodial money market protocol with goals to bring a whole suite of interest rate products: variable rate lending, fixed-rate lending, and interest rate swap. This essentially allows for lenders to lend at a fixed rate, and the borrowers to take on the fixed-rate, fixed-term loan.

These features are done through complex statistics that take into account various assets and wallets that Port Finance supports. 

Port Finance has a total supply of 100 million, with 33% in the Ecosystem, 31% in the Liquidity Incentives, 20% in the Team, 10% in Fund raising, 4% in Initial Liquidity, and 2% in Advisors.
