Getting Started on Goldfinch

The Goldfinch decentralized application (dapp),, is how Investors, Borrowers, and the rest of the Goldfinch community participate in the protocol.

There are only a few high-level steps required to interact with the dapp to start investing:

  1. Click "Connect Wallet" on the top right corner: Currently, the Goldfinch dapp supports WalletConnect or Metamask. If you do not have a wallet, click "I don't have a wallet" to set one up.

  2. Verify your identity: We'll cover how to mint a UID in the next page, Verifying Your Identity.

  3. Explore the dapp:

    1. View all of the Borrower Pools and a summary of your holdings on the Earn page

    2. View the Senior Pool page, and participate as a Liquidity Provider

    3. View the Borrower Pool pages, and participate as a Backer

  4. (Highly encouraged) Join the Discord! The Discord is a great place to ask the community for help with any questions you have along the way, stay in touch with announcements about different Borrower Pools, and generally participate in the community.

Goldfinch provides tools to help participants interact with the protocol, but it is your responsibility to stay compliant with all legal, regulatory, and tax laws for your relevant jurisdiction(s). These guides are not financial advice, but are instead educational guides for how to use the Goldfinch decentralized application. All protocol participants are strongly encouraged to consult with their own legal and tax counsel.
