When you use the Invest section on DeversiFi you are purchasing liquidity provider tokens which represent lending positions in various DeFi protocols

For example, when you supply USDT to the cUSDT product in the Invest section on app.deversifi.com, you are effectively lending your UDDT to the Compound Finance protocol on Ethereum. In return for lending your USDT, you receive cUSDT tokens in your DeversiFi account

The way this works in practice is that DeversiFi Labs, the operator of the DeversiFi platform, holds a float of cUSDT tokens that you can purchase without paying gas on the DeversiFi platform (layer 2). DeversiFi Labs periodically replenishes it's holdings on cUSDT and other liquidity provider tokens (buy buying on layer 1) to ensure that you can always purchase and redeem your tokens

Some tokens in the DeversiFi invest section are not Ethereum native tokens, and instead may be tokens from a different blockchain entirely. For example, the Terra blockchain. It is important that you do your own research before purchasing such tokens to make sure you are comfortable with the risks of purchasing such tokens.
