LunaFi is a leading decentralized and peerless DeFi betting protocol — providing users with a secure and trustless environment in which they can gamble, invest, and for the first time ever, become the house.” — Lord Porchester, LunaFi CEO

LunaFi is a trustless, borderless, DeFi protocol for sports betting with real utility, targeting mass adoption with guaranteed liquidity. LunaFi innovates beyond traditional gambling models and recent blockchain-enabled betting protocols by operating in a decentralized and peerless way. Global community-owned liquidity pools act as the house and fuel betting payouts, with a portion of house profits paid out to liquidity providers on an ongoing basis.

This unlocks a world of potential DeFi integrations and new products or services that allow investors to deposit and earn a share of profit gathered from betting activities on the platform, and to receive additional rewards in $LFI — the native token of the LunaFi Protocol.

Lunabets is the platform’s debut dApp. It is a non-custodial utilizing LunaFi smart contracts & liquidity pools to ensure trustless payouts. This means that there is an immediate settlement made by the smart contract to the winning party, removing all counterparty risk. Users are rewarded $LFI which can be claimed from LunaFi.

With the vision to create a sustainable, enjoyable, and profitable experience for all in the constantly expanding, globally owned community and commercial hybrid protocol for DeFi gambling, LunaFi aims to reimagine and innovate the traditional world of gambling by fusing it with the blockchain.

Why is LunaFi unique?

DeFi allows the creation of publicly verifiable liquidity pools. This acts as LunaFi’s “bookmaker”, and ensures bettors are always paid out correctly and on time. LunaFi also ensures worldwide access to fair and properly regulated bookmakers. The platform’s core focus is on ensuring the UX provides a seamless and intuitive user experience.

Gamblers have an unrivaled experience betting seamlessly through smart contracts with great odds and high limits without having to trust the bookmaker to payout. This means that the risk is only ever in the bet, not the platform.


$LFI is the governance token of LunaFi. Buying & Staking $LFI gives you access to great returns as the platform grows and reaches more users. Staking $LFI also gives you voting rights around key decisions so you can be a part of the platform’s future whilst earning you a share of the platform’s profits.
