dForce Partners with MCDEX to Power DeFi Perpetual Trading

We are pleased to announce our partnership with MCDEX to power DeFi perpetual trading by launching a USX pool, 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 leverage, and receive MCB mining rewards, or providing liquidity to the USX pool on MCDEX to earn trading fee, starting from 8am, UTC+8, 18 October.

As the first decentralized and non-fiat stablecoin supporting perpetual trading, USX will help dForce tap into derivative market, the largest trading segment (over hundred times the size of spot trading) within crypto spectrum. It will also bring dForceDAO additional protocol revenue in the format of trading fee and further expand the adoption of USX in non-lending use cases.

Compared to other stablecoins, USX, as dForce’s native stablecoin with yield-carrying collaterals, boasts many un-matched benefits to MCDEX users:

  1. Unlock Multi-Collateral Solutions to MCDEX. USX serves a crucial function in bridging multiple assets to MCDEX: all mainstream assets (including ETH, BTC, BNB, USDC, BUSD, USDT, DOT, ATOM, FIL, etc) currently supported on dForce Lending can be used as collateral to mint USX, and then trade perps seamlessly on MCDEX. This presents a significant enhancement in trading experience out-beating CEX, allowing traders to improve their portfolio return and use different collaterals for cross-margin.

  2. Huge Capital Efficiency Improvement. Given all collaterals used to mint USX carry underlying yields or interests, it will greatly improve capital efficiency for traders. For example, you can deposit BUSD into dForce and get 12% saving APY, translating into 10% yield taking into account of the LTV discount (meaning you can mint 80 USX against 100 BUSD deposit). You can mint USX and then deposit into MCDEX’s USX pool to earn trading fee on top of saving yields on your original BUSD principal.

  3. Yield Assets Bridge. All major staking assets and their liquid staking solutions (i.e., rTokens launched by StaFi) can also be used as collateral to mint USX via Liqee, meaning that you can earn additional profits from trading perps on top of staking yields! This signals a substantial improvement in capital efficiency outperforming CEX to the greatest extent. We also plan to extend collateral support to more yield tokens (i.e., Curve’s 3pool LP token) in the weeks to come. Stay tuned!

The USX integration marks a solid collaboration and strong synergies between dForce and MCDEX, demonstrating the value and power of composability and permissionless.
