Welcome to dForce Ecosystem Update — a full recap of dForce activities from January 2021 and a sneak peek into the next several weeks.
TVL(Total Value Locked) of dForce has grown to over $45.5M as of January 31, 2021, with dToken constituting 89% (US$40.4mil) of this TVL .
dUSDT accounts for the largest portion of locked value in dToken assets, accounting for 76% of the TVL (US$29.5mil), followed by dUSDC with US$6.0mil (15% of TVL), and 6% dDAI with a locked value of US$2.5mil. dUSDx from S.Finance and dToken from Yield Markets on Binance Smart Chain (BSC) makes up for 7% of the total TVL.
At the time of writing, users are able to earn yields north of 10% on stablecoins through dForce Yield Markets. Depositing USDT would earn the highest interest of 15.25%. dToken features one of the most popular yield markets, characterized by its steady and robust returns, strong composability, and easy access.
USDx holders can earn an APY of 12.28% at the time of writing by simply locking in USDx into the USR (USDx Saving Rate) protocol. Instant withdrawal is supported.
dForce Trade is now connected to 8 mostly used DEXes including Uniswap, Balancer, Curve, Sushiswap, and Unisave, covering more than 95% of ERC20 token swaps by aggregating liquidity and best available prices across multiple platforms to facilitate large-volume trades. Besides BSC, we are also planning to bring more accessibility to users of public chains.
dForce is one of the very few DeFi protocols offering incentivized plans over an extended time horizon, to promote long-term retention and community engagement. Among all yield-farming DeFi projects including Uniswap, Curve, and Yearn, dForce Liquidity Mining ranks #10 globally in terms of TVL. According to CoinMarketCap, Champagne Tower Pool being the most popular choice with no impermanent loss .
dForce Lending is a pool-based lending protocol, with its interest rate dynamically driven by market supply and demand. This is also a novel lending protocol with built-in over-collateralized multicurrency stable debt protocol, which could extend to fund the fractional reserve of an algorithmic stablecoin.
In layman’s terms, the protocol is: General Lending + Multicurrency Collateralized Stable Debt + Fractional Reserve Algorithmic Stablecoin.
Key highlights of dForce Lending’s offerings include: enhanced risk monitor, MSD (Multicurrency Stable Debt), Fixed Term/Fixed Rate loans, PPP (Public-Private Pool), Flashloan, etc.
