What is Pawnfi

Besides supporting mainstream assets, Pawnfi covers all types of Non-Standard Assets including Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT), Liquidity Provider Tokens (LP Tokens), tokenized rights, and minor cryptocurrencies with relatively less liquidity.

Pawnfi has achieved the divestiture of asset ownership, use rights, and earning rights within the product in an innovative way, so that asset holders and users can maximize capital efficiency. Compared with other lending protocols in the industry, Pawnfi can provide a wider range of asset support, a more flexible loan portfolio, and more diversified asset realization solutions.

    I deposited $29K in my pawnfi account and earned $28K over a 6-week period. My account is now frozen at $57K until I pay $10K in taxes. Is that legit? Or am I getting scammed?

      I have had the same issue– paid the taxes then had to wait for ages for the assets to be released unless I pay another sum to become a senior member- I am also worried now
