One small-cap cryptocurrency many investors have their eye on today is Maple (CCC:MPL-USD). This token has appreciated nearly 40% over the past 24 hours at the time of writing, surging to new weekly highs at a time when many cryptocurrencies are struggling. The Maple crypto is currently ranked just outside of the top 500 tokens in terms of market capitalization. Accordingly, this is a token not many investors have looked at closely.
However, the Maple crypto does have a unique use case that’s worth exploring. This network provides decentralized corporate credit markets. Essentially, companies can complete efficient and transparent financings on the blockchain. For those who believe that decentralized finance (DeFi) could disrupt the financial world, this is the kind of innovation most investors think of.
One of the key attributes that makes Maple interesting is the fact that this DeFi lending platform allows for under-collateralized loans. Unlike other platforms that require over-collateralization, this platform manages liquidity pools that set terms with borrowers, acting much like traditional banks would.
Therefore, given this news, let’s dive into where the experts think Maple could be headed from here.
