Acumen protocol also has other use cases. Individuals who are bullish on a specific asset can use the protocol to earn additional returns on their investment by supplying assets in the protocol. For example, if someone was bullish on SOL, they can lend out SOL and earn interest on it. Conversely, the Acumen protocol can also be used to short tokens. For example, if an individual believes that token X will depreciate, they can borrow asset X sell it for a stablecoin, and when asset X depreciates, buy it again, repay the loan and keep the difference.
