Terra presented something many refer to as the “4pool” in what seems, by all accounts, to be an unmistakable move to make UST and another quickly developing algorithmic stable coin called FRAX the main players in this specialty.
First, a quick primer on the Curve Wars, though.
No shots were fired but Curve Finance has turned into a battleground for whichever undertaking can give the most profound liquidity to its separate pool. The award for the most profound liquidity is, obviously, a token prize.
These worthwhile prizes are dolled out as Curve’s local administration token, CRV. At the point when you gather an adequate number of tokens, you then, at that point, can cast a ballot to have considerably more symbolic prizes circulated to your particular pool.
This has created a huge incentive to add liquidity, gather tokens, rinse and repeat. Whole projects have even emerged to game this simple mechanism.
For stable coins, the Curve is particularly significant because it likewise gives the profound liquidity important to keeping a symbolic’s dollar stake. Low liquidity stable coins can undoubtedly be upset on the off chance that a whale chooses to trade an immense measure of the token.
Thus, stable coin providers have another unique incentive to participate in the Curve Wars.
As of now, the biggest stable coin pool is classified “3pool.” It gives very profound liquidity to USDC, USDT, and DAI. Profound liquidity, for this situation, implies $3.2 billion.
Terra’s soon-to-launch 4pool is very similar and includes UST, FRAX, USDT, and USDC. And to attract folks to join, they’ll also be trying to max out those token rewards on Curve.
Also, did you notice anything missing from that list of stable coins?
By disposing of DAI and endeavoring to augment the complete prizes given to those giving liquidity to the new pool, reserves that might have added to 3pool’s profundity will not show up, possibly upsetting DAI.
As previously mentioned, though, it’s hard to imagine makers taking these attacks lying down.
