Linus is a U.S. based startup leveraging Open Finance protocols to provide retail investors with an enhanced experience. The Linus high yield account, currently in Alpha, offers depositors returns 33x greater than the average U.S. savings account. These rates are achieved by providing retail fiat depositors access to digital asset credit markets through a platform that feels like a savings account. By replacing inefficient legacy banking infrastructure with public, permissionless blockchains, Linus has architected a highly efficient tech stack that delivers more value to the end-user.
