Compound (COMP) is an Ethereum-based token that may be used by holders to make governance-related decisions involving the Compound protocol. The protocol lets users borrow and lend Ethereum tokens via a peer to peer (P2P) market. Lenders are able to earn interest on the crypto-assets they supply to the Compound protocol and borrowers have to pay interest to borrow assets – which is typically how most P2P marketplaces work.
