FAQ

What is Liquity?

ico

Liquity is a decentralized borrowing protocol that allows you to draw 0% interest loans against Ether used as collateral. Loans are paid out in LUSD - a USD pegged stablecoin, and need to maintain a minimum collateral ratio of only 110%.

In addition to the collateral, the loans are secured by a Stability Pool containing LUSD and by fellow borrowers collectively acting as guarantors of last resort. Learn more about these mechanisms under Liquidations.

Liquity as a protocol is non-custodial, immutable and governance-free.

What are the key benefits of Liquity?

ico

Liquity offers the best borrowing conditions on the market with the main benefits being:

- 0% interest rate
- A collaterization ratio of just 110%
- Governance free - all operations are algorithmic and fully automated
- Directly redeemable -  LUSD can be redeemed at face value for the underlying collateral, always and at any time
- Censorship resistant - the protocol is controlled by nobody

How can I earn money on Liquity?

ico

There are basically two different ways to generate revenue using Liquity:

1. Deposit LUSD to the Stability Pool and earn liquidation gains and LQTY rewards
2. Stake LQTY and earn the revenue from issuance fees (in LUSD) and redemption fees (in ETH)

Why should I become a Frontend Operator?

ico

Frontend Operators provide a web interface to the end-user enabling them to interact with the Liquity protocol. For that service, they will be rewarded with a share of the LQTY tokens their users generate.‌

LQTY rewards are being awarded to Stability Pool depositors and then proportionally shared between the users themselves and the Frontend Operator. How much each party gets is determined by the kickback rate which is set by the Frontend Operator and can range between 0% and 100%.‌

Setting a high Kickback Rate will make the Frontend Operator attractive to users, but offering a nice interface and additional functionalities might allow for a lower kickback rate while still garnering user interest.
