This collaboration aims to provide a more accessible and optimized yield management experience for all users, ranging from retail to institutional levels.
Pendle, with its specialized DeFi protocol, facilitates the tokenization and trading of yield. And, Pendle can leverage its flexibility in yield management, with an emphasis on fixed yield:

Binance Labs amplified its commitment to forward-thinking DeFi projects, while Pendle Finance is poised to integrate its unique yield management features across diverse blockchain platforms.
Yi He, co-founder and head of Binance Labs, further expressed the reasoning behind the partnership: “Binance Labs is always looking for projects that are spearheading innovation in DeFi sectors that will enable access to a wider audience. Pendle Finance’s focus on multi-chain expansion and innovative yield strategies align with our vision for the future of DeFi
Similarly, TN, co-founder and CEO of Pendle Finance, emphasized the potential growth avenues this partnership unlocks, hinting at the vast possibilities and advancements that can arise from this joint venture:
“Our collaboration with Binance Labs brings unparalleled expertise and resources that will catalyze our growth, ultimately driving accessibility and usability of yield opportunities across numerous venues.”
