The Biggest DeFi Flash Loan Contest Ever

5 min readOct 6, 2021


The flash loan market is exponentially increasing, reaching more than $1B volume monthly. This growth comes from the fact that flash loan service is a need in the Decentralized Finance market for many use cases as arbitrage, liquidations, collateral swapping, and portfolio re-balancing. As long as the DeFi market is expanding in volume the flash loan need will expand as well.

There are no intermediaries in the DeFi market and many crypto assets are used in different protocols and pools. This creates an unbalanced asset valuation between different protocols. DeFi traders, arbitrageurs and developers can spot many opportunities when they look to the same asset present in different protocols/pools. To get profit out of these opportunities without providing any collateral, a user needs to execute an inter-protocol transaction and use the flash loan service.

Equalizer Finance is the first dedicated marketplace to offer the most efficient flash loan service in the market. With a multi-chain native architecture, Equalizer has just been released on the Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain, bringing many advantages compared to other players in the market. The top benefits for borrowers are summarized here:
