1. What is Royale Finance?
Royale Finance is a decentralized industry-focused lending protocol basing its mechanisms on DeFi primitives.
Calling themselves iGDeFi, they are a cross-chain liquidity and technology solution for iGaming platforms.
Launched as an attempted fix for the security and trust loopholes in gaming platforms and for the liquidity access for game developers, they claim that many game developers halt their progress because of the lack of resources.
Using provably fair algorithms and a system that ensures entrepreneurs a chance to find their place in the game development industry, Royale Finance aims for a more open market that allows new and innovative ideas to sprout.
