The protocol introduced by Aanchal Malhotra and Vito Tumas aims to ensure XRP Ledger Blockchain enables pools of loans and on-chain loans to be operated. Additionally, it allows users to add fungible tokens including wBTC, wETH, and XRP to the lending pool to earn interest.

According to the company, to activate the protocol, two novel entities must be implemented within XRPL: a pseudo-account and a single-asset tokenized pool.
