Nusa Background

How It Started

On October 2020, Indodax and Tokenomy initiated a project called Tadpole Finance. Tadpole Finance is an open source platform providing decentralized finance services for saving and lending. The idea of Tadpole Finance business model drives from the challenge faced by projects to enter any lending market because existing lending market are usually closed door on public projects. William Sutanto and Oscar Darmawan, founders of Tadpole Finance, bridge this obstacle by providing an open lending market where any BEP-20 tokens can list their token at Tadpole Finance lending market.

The Advancement of Tadpole Finance

2 years after Tadpole Finance has started, the project has established a legitimate lending market platform. We have reached our highest TVL at $8M in 2021 and provide more than 10 tokens available for lending and borrowing. As the community grows for both users and businesses, the ecosystem stabilized, our target to establish an open lending market has been achieved.
Tadpole Finance roadmap has all been checked and can continue to run automatically with the smart contract. As the project matured, we learnt that our community has been showing tremendous support and excitement through out the project development. In gratitude, we decided to expand our project by making a new roadmap to provide more amazing features for the community!

The Launch of Nusa

Since we have decided to continue the project, first thing first we recruited a capable team to continue the journey. We met Wildan Ramadhan and Ifan Wijaya and proudly announce them as the CEO and CTO of Tadpole Finance. After a long discussion between the team, we plan to rebrand Tadpole Finance to Nusa. The reason behind rebranding are:
  • We have a new vision and mission
  • Tadpole Finance is a name for a Defi Project, since we will surf into Web3 ecosystem we need a more suitable name
  • Updated roadmap that adjusted to the new tokenomics.
Finally here is NUSA vision and mission
