Jump Rate Interest Model Overview

Lodestar Finance uses its own interest rate models inspired from Compound's jump rate model. Lodestar has a total of five models with varying parameters based on the underlying risk factors of the markets.

The interest rate models assigned to different markets are classified based on the overall risk surrounding the respective underlying asset:

- Interest Rate Model 1 => Minimal risk
- Interest Rate Model 2 => Low risk
- Interest Rate Model 3 => Medium risk
- Interest Rate Model 4 => High risk
- Interest Rate Model 5 => Maximum risk

In the following pages, these models will be explored and the logic behind them explained.
