What is CFG?

As explained in a blog post, Centrifuge is “a decentralized finance (DeFi) lending protocol that aims to make credit more accessible to small businesses, while also providing a stable yield for investors by opening pooled liquidity to the world of traditional finance.”

As noted in the update, CFG, Centrifuge’s utility token, “is essential to keeping the system secure and is used to pay transaction fees and for holders to help govern its software by voting on potential upgrades to it.”

While commenting on whether Kraken plans to list more assets, the company (like always), said it would be. However, their policy is “to never reveal any details until shortly before launch – not even which assets we are considering.”

As mentioned in a blog post, all of Kraken’s listed tokens “are available on [their official] website, and all future tokens will be announced on Kraken’s blog and social media profiles.”

Their client engagement specialists “cannot answer any questions about which assets we may be listing in the future,” the team at Kraken clarified.

As noted in the announcement, there is “no guarantee that a limit order will execute. There is also no guarantee of executing at a certain price for a market order.” The availability and liquidity of the particular digital asset “will impact these types of orders.”

Listing an asset or token for trade ‘is not a recommendation to buy, sell, or participate in the associated network” and you must do your own research and invest “at your own risk.”
