Morpho is a DeFi Protocol which acts as a peer-to-peer layer on top of Compound & Aave. When matching users peer-to-peer, Morpho offers better interest rates to both lenders and borrowers on the Compound Protocol as well as on the Aave Protocol. The peer-to-peer layer added by Morpho does not change the liquidity and liquidation guarantees offered by Compound / Aave as a protocol.
