You have landed in the best place to learn more about Tempus.
Tempus Fixed Income is a multi-chain fixed-income protocol that integrates with lending protocols, staking protocols, and yield aggregators, and lets users fix or speculate on the yield generated by them.
Most forms of yield farming return a variable rate of yield. This means that depositors can be subject to unpredictable fluctuations in their returns. Currently, there is no easy capital-efficient way to obtain a fixed yield or otherwise speculate on yields. This is where Tempus steps in.
Tempus has three different use cases, each of which offers a unique value proposition:
Fix your future yield using any supported Yield Bearing Token (such as stETH, aUSDC, and yvDAI).
Speculate on the rate of future yield of any supported Yield Bearing Token.
Provide liquidity on any supported yield-bearing token pool and earn trading fees on top of the existing variable yield on the Yield Bearing Token.
Our mission is to provide the world with a simple and trustless way to attain predictable fixed yields. We believe that Decentralized Finance (DeFi) users should be able to remove interest rate volatility from their portfolios or allow more advanced DeFi users to increase exposure to interest rate volatility if desired.
Tempus has set out to deliver the tools and user experience to make future yield tokenization easier and more accessible.
