One of the first pioneers in providing returns for only holding. The coin was launched this summer with the original firm developed in 2017. The Compound protocol is one of the first widely used systems built on Ethereum, with tens of thousands of users, and dozens of applications integrating Compound.
If you consider Chainlink as the S&P 500 benchmark for Defi - the correlations on per day growth are similar. The two typically do well on weekends - with results mixed during the week on Friday and Saturday.
In the short-term I believe that Compound will correlate with the rest of the Cryptocurrency market. The main difference between Compound and many other recently initiated DeFi projects is that Compound has headquarters in San Francisco and can ideally navigate the legal requirements for financial regulations. If done well - it could post a long-term boost to the project. If the US government increases regulation and scrutiny on DeFi projects - Compound will have a disadvantage with its US presence.
