Q3. Can you tell us how Nord Savings, Nord Advisory and Nord Loans work?

Amarnath: Nord.Savings : Similar to Bank savings product 

Allows optimizing returns through a multi-chain yield-farming mechanism for stable coin farming with the highest possible risk-adjusted returns. To maximize returns, the protocol employs the highest risk-adjusted APY’s. Whereas it leverages the DeFi Score framework to assess and analyze the dynamics of protocol risks. Nord.Savings provides a seamless interface to access the world of DeFi-based yield farming effortlessly without any technical implications as the traditional financial counterparts.

Nord.Advisory: You investment fund manager 

An inbuilt robo-advisory service designed to chalk out profitable and customized strategies for users to hold better positions based on their financial goals. The automated robo service analyzes the user profile and evaluates personalized solutions that will help accomplish the users’ financial goals by employing a diversified portfolio. The data-driven proprietary algorithms facilitate unleashing the potential of a certain portfolio by executing smart tactics. This service is a revolutionary move as the technical nitty-gritty of the DeFi landscape might seem a bit complex for novice users, thus demanding assistance for the same. 

Nord.Loans: Over collateral lending platoform

DeFi users can leverage their crypto assets to their greatest potential by pledging them in smart contracts to avail loans for unanticipated circumstances. The process to avail of an instant over-collateralized loan is quite uncluttered and hassle-free. This is a smart alternative to borrowing loans without liquidating the crypto assets to meet financial obligations. It also offers a personal overdraft facility with the benefit of paying interest while withdrawing the amount.

We have products cater to different needs of the users, however we believe that Nord Advisory is our game changer and we want to give more attention to this product. This is one of its kind product and yet to try in DeFI space as of now. We have tied up with chainlink to have secure and reliable price feeds for our robo advisory. Our plan is to bring both crypto assets and real world digital assets on to Nord Advisory. We are talking to few major stake holders to on board as our strategic partners which will bring lots of value in the advisory product more details will come out very soon.

Q4. Can you tell the Community about how Nord Finance works generally?

Amarnath: In simple words its an Investment banking on DeFi allowing users to invest Stable coins to get better returns based on their risk appetite.

Also we have products cater to different needs like savings , advisory loans as well.

We wanted to be chain agnostic platoform by which we will be available on most of the demanding block chains by allowing users to interact interoperable way.

Nord finance products will be with a intuitive UI be a your own bank in permissionless  and true non custodial way on different block chains .

Q5. What are the benefits or Reward in Nord Finance?

Amarnath: $NORD token has various utilities in the Nord Finance financial ecosystems: 

Liquidity Mining: In order for the Nord Finance ecosystem to function properly, users would need to be incentivised to play the role of liquidity providers and stake their digital assets into the market making pools. As compensation for opportunity costs as well as impermanent losses, these liquidity providers which help to promote adoption of the Nord Finance ecosystem by staking or including assets to liquidity pools would be rewarded with $NORD tokens (i.e. liquidity “mining” programs on the Nord Finance ecosystem), according to each user’s relative contribution after various adjustment and correction parameters.

Incentivizing programs: Users can earn $NORD token incentives by participating in the platform, for example trading/exchanging, or development of new strategies for the vault.

Distributing Fee Rewards: In order to stimulate participation in the platform , $NORD token will be distributed as rewards to users for various contests and community giveaways.

Community governance incentives: The $NORD token holders will earnestly participate in the protocol’s governance by voting on various proposals regarding product upgrades. Users will be required to stake their $NORD tokens in the staking program to participate in governance and vote on proposals, and as a reward they will be able to earn additional $NORD tokens proportionate to their contributions.

Service fees: For the services rendered a small fee/profit share would be charged by the protocol in $NORD. These fees will be retained in the protocol treasury.

Cross Chain Settlement: Using the $NORD token as the base platform currency, $NORD will expedite digital asset swaps between compatible blockchain seamlessly.

Q6. How many Partners do you have? And what do you expect from them?

Amarnath: We have partnered with
