Product Development

  • dForce Vaults (launched)

Accept a wider variety of assets as collateral with a new risk model and independent pool to mint USX. The first batch of supported collateral assets are iUSDT, iUSDC, and iDAI.

  • DF Staking (expected launch in January)

The DF staking system allows users to stake DF token in exchange for vDF token, which can be used to propose and vote on critical protocol decisions, capture value directly from dForce protocols, and receive inflationary rewards from staking, etc. Coming soon!

  • Cross-Chain Bridge (expected launch in January)

A toolkit facilitating immediate swap for dForce native stablecoins across Ethereum, Arbitrum, Optimism and BSC. It will soon support all cross-chain services for dForce’s native stable assets between Ethereum, Arbitrum, Binance Smart Chain, and Optimism.

  • PDLP (launched)

Accept interest-bearing tokens as collateral to mint dForce-backed stablecoins, effectively combating liquidity shortage for whitelisted protocols integrated with USX and EUX.

  • POO (expected launch in January)

Leverage treasury assets and act as counterparty and super user to ensure supply and demand are in equilibrium with optimized efficiency.

  • Dashboard (expected launch in January)

The Dashboard will give users an easy-to-read form of key information relating to the protocol performance, including TVL, revenue, assets, etc.

  • Others
  1. Extend lending and collateral support to wstETH on dForce.
  2. New BUSD-USX pool with DODO on BSC.
  3. dForce added collateral support to wstETH! This allows users to borrow against collateralized wstETH. wstETH stands for wrapped stETH, a DeFi-compatible version of the stETH token which allows for easier integrations with DeFi protocols. As most DeFi protocols require a constant balance mechanism for tokens, Lido lets you ‘wrap’ your stETH into wstETH to keep your balance of stETH fixed. Instead of updating daily, wstETH uses an underlying share system to reflect your earned staking rewards.

Extended Readings: How to get wstETH


DIP017 — Add Collateral Support to wstETH [Passed]

This approval seeks to add collateral support to Lido’s wstETH, allowing users to borrow against wstETH.

DIP018 — Proposal for the Deployment of EntroFi Vault[Passed]

This proposal seeks approval to extend USX facility to EntroFi, serving the purpose of providing liquidity to crypto trading firms, with dForce’s representative entity or appointed entity acting as fund custodian.

DIP019 — Proposal for the Implementation of PDLP and POO[Passed]

It is proposed to implement PDLP (Protocol-Direct-Liquidity-Provision) and introduce protocol-owned liquidity to lending protocols integrated with USX and EUX. It is also proposed to implement POO (Protocol-Owned Operator) and leverage treasury liquidity to further boost supply and demand.
