Lulo is a lending aggregator on the Solana blockchain.

Lulo’s role is to provide users with the best possible yield across all of the biggest lending platforms such as MarginFi, Kamino, Drift and more. The company has numerous investors and financial backers such as Solana Ventures, Circle and more. Although the raised amount is not public, there is some speculation of an airdrop, the airdrop could be fruitful as there are <5000 active wallets.

The steps are very simple:

  1. Head to https://www.lulo.fi/?type=yield and choose the token you would like to use from the drop down list (USDC, SOL and more).

  2. After you have chosen the token of your choice, submit an amount and press “Deposit”.

  3. To keep track of your Lulo Portfolio, press on “Portfolio” on the top of your screen and you should see the amount of tokens you have deposited along with the APY beside it.

  4. To withdraw, all you need to do is press the “Withdraw” button and choose the amount of tokens you would like to withdraw.
