{
  "status": 200,
  "title": "OK",
  "description": "Successful request",
  "payload": {
    "metadata": {
      "next": "https://web3api.io/api/v2/defi/lending/compoundv2/assets/ZRX?cursor=N4IgRgNg9gxg1jAFgQwJYDsCSATEAuEARhgE5SA2EgBnIFYAzGbY%2BkAGhAAcAnKAF1hQIOfCBhQAtpygBXdNgBuAJnYgJybnACmffOhkQIHDDAgzsWgIKGAKt2ToAzshh9UUdAFEFW9H0f49MgQjlocbhJaAGJQ3Oq6BIgy6ugASlrI2MiQWqrYqNxaru7oopYAygDCqo58GnwAIsh8uXiE5OSEACwkXYQA7AAcVCMcvthNLfjtnSTUXSOLHI6oAF6thKMgFj7QnFrcALJQFoHBoRz0sfGiAFaOHqqcyADmGxyxqC8YweV13I1mhs6CQAMyEJSLJYgT7fdDBTzySbA2bzKFUDjIRyhPgiAhUAAeWj62CUXUGJFo-UI2FBSiUhApZPIWSCtC0YAshHoXUoJB5JEGqggWL4NlQkVqyCkohm3V6AyFHBFtQAMlAXph5FoCdNwQBfIA"
