Welcome to the Weekly Wrap Up, a weekly series where I go over all of the highlights in the Liquity ecosystem. This issue covers the week of 5/10–5/16.
What is Liquity?
Liquity is a decentralized borrowing protocol that allows you to draw 0% interest loans against Ether used as collateral. Learn more . System Overview With the recent ETH price drops causing a decrease in TVL, LUSD supply has stayed relatively stable (1.48B) as Liquity’s borrowers remained risk-off during the ETH price rise. Liquity has 953.8K ETH locked — $3.37B as of 5/17. Heading into 5/17, Liquity had its largest set of redemptions totaling over $5M — generating ~12.6 ETH in fees for LQTY stakers. These redemptions have pushed the borrowing fee to ~0.69%. More on redemptions here. Find more system stats here.
