Goldfinch is a decentralized credit protocol that allows for crypto borrowing without crypto collateral; instead loans are fully collateralized off-chain. Most of the first $100M was impact-focused lending to businesses in emerging markets.
While at Warbler Labs, I led the design efforts of contributions to the Goldfinch protocol, including: a re-brand of Goldfinch.finance, a re-design of the Golfinch.finance Dapp, and several key protocol features.
"Turbo Tax for PPP loans."
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is an SBA-backed loan that helped businesses keep their workforce employed during the COVID-19 crisis. Scratch was contracted by Cross River Bank to manage $2B+ in PPP loans. Our tool and operations directly supported 106k+ businesses in maximizing their PPP loan forgiveness.
I co-led a cross-functional team in developing requirements for, designing, and building the digital application + operational processes for handling PPP loan forgiveness. The project was shaped by strict federal government requirements that changed several times as the PPP program was being developed. Initial concept-to-MVP launch time: 8 weeks.
