About Dharma

Dharma is a money-market protocol that runs on the ethereum blockchain. It let crypto owners lend out coins they are not using to suitors who have a need for crypto, creating a market for unutilized virtual currency. The Dharma protocol matches interest-rate streams rather than people, which means once a coin is supplied it becomes a fungible resource. This allows users to withdraw their coins whenever they like.
