Liquity — Weekly Wrap Up #20
November 22, 2021
Welcome to the Weekly Wrap Up, a weekly series where we go over all of the highlights within the Liquity ecosystem. This issue covers the week of 11/15–11/21.
What is Liquity? Liquity is a decentralized borrowing protocol that allows you to draw 0% interest loans against Ether used as collateral. Learn more.
Despite last week’s market turbulence, Liquity users minted over 120M LUSD and pushed LUSD’s total supply to a six month high of 860M!
Last week’s spike in LUSD supply could be due to an increase in buy side demand from two new integrations: Fei Protocol’s Balancer auction to acquire 100M LUSD and the Synthetix LUSD/sUSD wrapper. At time of writing, both of these integrations have attracted a combined 64M LUSD — adding even more diversity to LUSD’s utilization chart. More details below.
In the last Weekly Wrap Up, we touched on the borrowing fee reaching its ceiling of 5%. Good news: the peg is restored, redemptions have slowed, and the fee has returned back to ~0.5%. Happy borrowing!
Synthetix’s LUSD/sUSD wrapper contract is now live, which means LUSD can be used to mint sUSD on Optimism. Guide here.
Fei Protocol’s proposal to acquire $100M LUSD through a Balancer auction passed. Balancer Pool here.
DeFi Saver overhauled their Loan Shifter, making it easier for their users to move loans between Liquity and other supported protocols. More info here.
We posted a proposal to add an LUSD market on Compound. Read and discuss here.
