Welcome to dForce monthly update. We keep our community up to date about what to expect in the coming months.
In October, dForce announced collaborations with UPRETs, EntroFi, NAOS to power RWA-backed loans, allowing permissioned institutions and protocols to obtain USX liquidity from dForce, and generating juicy returns that are less correlated to the broader crypto market
dForce partnered with MCDEX to power DeFi perpetual trading by launching a USX pool on Binance Smart Chain, initially supporting perpetual contracts of BTC, ETH, as well as BNB. With this integration, users can either trade perpetual contracts and settle in USX (for up to 15x leverages) and receive MCB mining rewards, or providing liquidity to the USX pool to earn trading fee.
As a core asset across dForce ecosystem, USX is the engine that drives cross-protocol synergies and demonstrates great success in expanding dForce’s outreach to all spectrums, from lending to staking, trading, derivatives, RWA financing, etc.
dForce Trade has been integrated into the all-in-one interface, where users can easily switch between lending and trading.

Yield Token Pool
Independent lending pool catering to yield tokens (i.e., LP tokens, iTokens, etc), allowing users to make full use of interest-bearing tokens sitting idle in your wallet for boosted capital efficiency. Expected launch in Q4.
The DF staking system allows users to stake DF token 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. Expected launch in Q4.
A toolkit facilitating immediate swap for dForce-backed assets across Ethereum, Arbitrum, and BSC. Expected launch in Q4.

dForce and UPRETs Partner to Onboard Real-World Assets backed Loans
dForce and UPRETS announced their collaboration to power RWA financing. UPRETS is a platform focused on simplifying investment in real estate by advising on and digitalizing assets and securities.

Following Liqee, dForce announced collaboration with EntroFi of USX’s credit line extension, leading USX adoption by allowing permissioned institutions and protocols to obtain USX liquidity from dForce. This protocol-to-protocol integration will allow dForce to use EntroFi as a portal to connect to borrowers in various forms, and facilitate easy execution for RWA deals. Borrowers can use EntroFi’s portal to interact with dForce’s USX protocol.
