Every Saturday I bring you the latest news from the world of peer to peer lending. These are the best of the news articles and blog posts from around the web that I shared on Twitter this past week.
The bigs news of the week was another stellar month for both Prosper and Lending Club with the latter passing $400 million in new loans on Monday. Several news sites picked up Lending Club’s press release about that milestone. The most interesting article of the week from my perspective was the VentureBeat one where Chris Larsen of Prosper discusses the broken banking system. Enjoy your weekend.
