Liquity Newsletter — January 2021

February 4, 2021

Welcome to our first monthly newsletter 🎉

In this newsletter we’ll be sharing updates regarding Liquity (and our ecosystem) on a regular cadence. If you’d like these sent directly to your inbox, sign up for the mailing list on our website.

Development Update

A lot has been going on behind the scenes in terms of development since we published our whitepaper in May 2020. Our team has been working on a number of protocol improvements and refinements.

The most important enhancement for borrowers is that the loss incurred in case of a liquidation is now always capped at 10% of the collateral, even if the system is in Recovery Mode. Further changes include:

  • Out-of-order and batch liquidations
  • Redesign of Recovery Mode
  • Gas Compensation and Liquidation Reserve
  • Mitigation of loss-evasion by Stability Providers
  • Redemptions
  • Fee slippage protection
  • Oracle logic enhancement

We’re finalizing the new version of our whitepaper and will publish it very soon along with an explanatory blog post. Stay tuned!

If you have feedback or notice any issues, please join our Discord and get in touch.

Content Update

We also released a blog post — Liquity Runs on Decentralized Frontends that provides more information on running a frontend.
