Fulcrum Sets a New Standard for User Experience

When we crafted Fulcrum, we agonized over every click and every word, removing any wasted motion. We’ve added features and defaults that make lending and trading more painless than it has ever been. We’re proud of how much thought and love we have poured into the product.

Three clicks. No Accounts. No fees.

To start earning interest just click lend, enter the amount, and accept. If you want to trade, select the leverage, click buy, enter the amount, and accept. It’s that easy. You can get started right away without registering an account. How much do we charge for this? Nothing. It’s all free.
