The Alchemix project is building a new DeFi primitive, combining yield generation with a lending platform that allows drawing loans based on future income. In the initial iteration, users can deposit Dai to draw alDai for up to 50% of the value of the deposit. AlDai can be converted one-to-one to Dai through the protocol or decentralized exchanges.
In the backend, Alchemix sends the deposited funds to yield generating protocols like Yearn.finance. The yield obtained from the platform is used to automatically repay the alDai loan over time, with the protocol withholding 10% of the yield as revenueTitle: Alchemix raises $3.1M to build DeFi lending backed by future income
