OpenSky Finance

OpenSky Finance is a peer-to-pool lending protocol where crypto lenders can earn safe passive income and NFT HODLers can borrow instantly using their NFTs as collateral. It is an omnichain lending protocol powered by , offering peer-to-pool instant loans and peer-to-peer bespoke loans.[1][3]

On January 23rd, $OSKY was officially listed on, and simultaneously, the OSKY/USDT trading pair became available.[7] 


launched in 2022, openSky Finance is an omnichain lending protocol powered by Aave. It offers peer-to-pool instant loans and peer-to-peer bespoke loans, allowing borrowers to switch seamlessly between these two types of loans without needing a bridge loan.[1]

The vision of OpenSky Finance is to assist enthusiasts on , , and other major chains in unlocking and putting their valuable NFTs to work with high capital efficiency and no liquidation risk based on price. OpenSky has a discrete time-based liquidation (DTBL) mechanism that significantly enhances the borrower user experience while reducing the risk of bad debt. This is achieved through the discrete nature of the loans being made across time, meaning that only some loans may face liquidation at any given point in time.[2][3]
wikiIntegrated with, OpenSky ensures that lender deposits are directly passed to's well-tested . Lenders can earn passive income from and interest from instant loan borrowers, all with 100% capital efficiency.
OpenSky Finance considers itself as the first lending protocol to integrate both peer-to-pool and peer-to-peer lending functions. This integration allows lenders to utilize their Instant EARN pool deposit tokens (tokens) to make or accept peer-to-peer (Bespoke) loan offers. Even if no Bespoke loans are made, lenders will continue to earn continuously from the Instant EARN pool.[2]

How OpenSky Work?

wikiOpenSky Finance offers two different loans to its users, peer-to-pool (instant loans) and peer-to-peer loans (Bespoke loans).

Peer-to-pool (instant loans)

Lenders can deposit their or into an OpenSky EARN vault and immediately begin earning deposit income and interest from Instant loans. They have the flexibility to withdraw their deposits at any time, and no specialized knowledge is needed to earn safe and capital-efficient passive income.

Borrowers, on the other hand, can stake their whitelisted collection NFTs, such as , and instantly borrow a percentage of the floor price. These loans have fixed interest rates and due dates, allowing borrowers to repay them early without incurring penalties. OpenSky is also one lending protocol to provide peer-to-pool loans without any liquidation risk based on the floor price. Borrowers can only face liquidation if they fail to modify or repay their loan by the expiry of the grace period, initially set to 48 hours subject to DAO vote, at the end of the predetermined loan term.[4]

Peer-to-peer loans (Bespoke loans)

Bespoke loans give Borrowers the option to propose a loan for an NFT that isn't included in the Instant loan whitelist or for a high-value NFT like Alien Punk, which is part of a whitelisted collection such as . Initially, only specific will be eligible for Bespoke loans, with plans to open this up to voting in the future.

Lenders have the autonomy to choose the desired borrowing amount, term, and APR. They can review the available Bespoke loan offers and utilize their pool deposits to accept offers in the order they are received. This approach is highly efficient in terms of capital utilization because the pool deposits continue to accrue earnings until a Bespoke offer is accepted. Additionally, when a Bespoke loan is repaid, the funds are returned to the Aave pool, and lenders resume receiving Instant loan income seamlessly, without interruption.[4]

OpenSky currently leverages Aave, a decentralized, non-custodial liquidity protocol that allows users to participate as depositors and borrowers without requiring permission or trust. Depositors provide liquidity to the market and earn passive income, while borrowers can access funds either in an overcollateralized (perpetually) or undercollateralized (one-block liquidity or flash loan) manner.
