Maple Finance is excited to share that loans to Alameda Research have surpassed $100M. Launched in November 2021, and managed by Orthogonol Trading, the permissioned lending pool plans to reach $1BN over 12 months.

In total $47.25M was deposited in the third tranche by a whitelisted cohort of lenders. Blue chip crypto-marketplace Abra deposited $25M, ZedRun deposit for the first time, and existing lenders including CoinShares have rolled their loans to the sum of $22.25M.

Lending is restricted to accredited non-US institutions that pass through KYC-AML procedures, and unlike traditional debt capital deals this syndicated loan can be expanded at any time.

Launched 9 months ago, total liquidity provided to pools on Maple has reached $611M with more than $683M loans originated. The growing institutional participation on Maple Finance demonstrates the attractiveness of lending to high quality, large scale borrowers, previously only accessible through traditional finance markets.
