Gearbox: DeFi's Composable Leverage Protocol

In this week's episode of 0xResearch, we bring on Ivan and Ilgiz from Gearbox to explore how Gearbox can offer traders up to 10x leverage while maintaining security and composability.

As usual, we start the episode with our analyst Hot Seat/Cool Throne segment, where we debate the SEC's ruling against BUSD and if stablecoins are wrecked! If that's not for you, skip to the interview segment where we discuss Gearbox credit accounts, how to prevent protocol bad debt, attracting passive liquidity, GEAR value accrual and more. You won't want to miss this deep dive into one of the most innovative projects in DeFi!
