dForce Ecosystem Update — July 2020

In July, dForce successively launched GOLDx (a digital token backed by physical gold), and dForce Yield Markets (dToken).

On July 21, we proposed a USDx weighting adjustment in an attempt to improve yielding opportunity of USDx’s underlying constituent stablecoins, which ended with 97.4% in favor of the proposed new weighting (80% USDC, 10% PAX, 10% TUSD) and was activated on July 30 consequently.

On August 1, dForce kicked off the first round of liquidity mining of governance token (DF), which triggered strong interest from the community marked by spikes in network participation, trading volume, total value locked, and market cap of governance token.

Product Launch

GOLDx (Digital Gold Token)

GOLDx is the first gold protocol built upon Open Gold Protocol by dForce. It is a digital token backed by physical gold and is denominated in gram (1 GOLDx = 1 gram of gold). Zero fees associated with GOLDx’s on-chain transactions enables a full compatibility with all DeFi protocols and easy for DeFi integrations (noted that there will be fee levied by PAXG issuer, i.e Paxos for conversions to PAXG and vice versa).

dForce Trade immediately supports GOLDx swap against all major stablecoin pairs, including USDx, USDT, USDC, DAI, PAX, BUSD, HUSD, TUSD. Users can also use the protocol to mint or disaggregate GOLDx at any time.
Presently, GOLDx holders can participate in dForce’s yield farming by providing GOLDx/USDx liquidity on Uniswap, and staking Uniswap LP Share Token in $GOLDx Rush Pool through dForce staking portal to earn DF. The current APY is approximately 84.8%.

GOLDx is now listed on DigiFinex for spot trading and contract trading.

dToken Yield Market (dToken)

Yield Markets is the second core asset protocol across dForce Network following USDx. The Yield Markets aim to become the most accessible yield aggregator to farm the most attractive risk-adjusted yield across DeFi protocols. It now supports USDT, USDC, and DAI. Depositing supported tokens into the Yield Markets, users will receive dToken automatically on a pro rata basis (i.e. depositing USDT to receive dUSDT). Each dToken represents a pro rata claim of the underlying token plus yields generated.

As a general assets protocol, dToken pools yield across DeFi stacks, with the flexibility to serve customized pools with different assets. dToken supports a variety of stable asset tokens, each token owns an independent pool. We will allocate pooled capital based on on-chain and off-chain strategies.
Presently, users can participate dForce yield farming by depositing USDT, USDC, or DAI through dForce Yield Markets, then stake the dToken received through dForce Staking Portal into the Champagne Tower Pool to earn DF. The current APY of Champagne Tower Pool is approximately 46.3–52.5% (depends on different assets).

Product Development


With a target to improve yielding opportunity of USDx’ underlying constituent stablecoins, we launched dForce Governance Poll №3 on Jul 21, 2020, proposing to adjust the weighting of underlying reserve of USDx to 1 USDx = 80% USDC +10% PAX + 10% TUSD.

3.1% (Quorum: >2%) of dForce Token (DF) participated with 97.42% (threshold: >50%) in favor of the proposed new weighting, 1 USDx = 80% USDC +10% PAX + 10% TUSD. Therefore, the proposal is passed and will be activated on Jul 30 accordingly.
