The features and services provided by the Arbor Finance platform are simple:
- Select a suitable bond issuer, i.e. the Crypto project. For instance, Ribbon Finance, a project that has successfully issued bonds to raise funds on the platform before.
- Conduct proper due diligence on bond issuers and disclose as much information about the issuers as possible
- Provide a bond issuance platform where the bond issuer only needs to fill in relevant parameters, such as bond issuance volume, collateral token, maturity date, etc., to issue bonds
- Provide an auction platform for bond sales, allowing investors to purchase bonds
Arbor Finance has not yet launched a token, but the project plans to do so, which will be used to compensate early partners and users of the platform.
The co-founders of Arbor Finance are Russell Ratcliffe, Cameron Schorg, and Kyle Trusler, all of whom have years of experience in the Crypto and DeFi fields. Among them, Cameron Schorg has participated in extensive lending and borrowing work when he was working at Notional, serving clients including DAOs, credit funds and prop trading firms, thus providing experience for the development of Arbor Finance's bond products.
At the same time, he also believes that the transparent, on-chain and DeFi-based debt market built by Arbor is the right solution for DAO financing. In addition, the core team members also include Matt Gates and Philipp Petzka, who have made achievements in frontend and business development respectively, which are beneficial to the development of Arbor.
