Can @fraxfinance become the decentralized bank of DeFi?

Fraxlend, FraxSwap, and a new FRAX base pool will flip the switch and trigger FRAX demand

🧵 by @0xpibblez (1/8)
@fraxfinance @0xpibblez 2/ $FRAX supply currently sits at only 20% of DAI's supply. With new developments, FRAX demand could surge 400% before breaking even with DAI.

The value and revenue from this growth, of course, would flow to FXS holders
@fraxfinance @0xpibblez 3/ $FXS holders are currently voting on a $20M revenue-fueled buyback.

With a new TWAMM and FraxSwap, Frax stands to earn even more revenue via a 0.3% trading fee on all swaps.

FraxSwap is a permissionless treasury management tool for DeFi projects to conduct monetary policy
@fraxfinance @0xpibblez 4/ Frax introduced plans for real world asset lending AMOs through its new Fraxlend product, which is set to launch within 7 days.

This will serve as a new, composable primitive that permits both under-collateralized and over-collateralized loans for individuals and protocols
@fraxfinance @0xpibblez 5/ Frax's @curvefinance base pool is up for vote. With Frax providing 1/2 of the 3pool liquidity, a FRAXBP could shake up the state of stableswaps on Curve.

Protocols will gain capital efficiency, and Frax will become a supply sink for CRV
@fraxfinance @0xpibblez @CurveFinance 6/ @ConvexFinance's Frax integration is the best kept secret in DeFi, where users can find several ways to earn CRV, CVX, and FXS rewards.

Frax's CVX holdings have proven to be beneficial in the recent Frax/CRV voting rounds
@fraxfinance @0xpibblez @CurveFinance @ConvexFinance 7/ Despite the UST meltdown, FRAX's collateralization ratio still sits at ~90% and the peg proved resilient, even with recent liquidation events across DeFi.

All developments will translate to more revenues for Frax and more fuel to benefit FXS holders @fraxbull1

On June 7th, Osmosis was halted by its validators after discovering an exploit was impacting the protocol's liquidity pools.

How were the attackers able to drain ~$5m of assets?

(1/10)🧵 research by @smyyguy
@smyyguy 2/ The attack stemmed from a bug that was introduced during the v9.0 upgrade that went live just 10 hours before the halt.

The bug allowed users to withdraw more assets from pools than they owned.
@smyyguy 3/ When a user deposited two assets into a pool, the protocol incorrectly double counted one of the assets.

The bugged calculation caused the protocol to distribute approximately 50% more LP tokens than accurate, overstating the user's ownership of the assets in the pool.

Is Tether's peg at risk?

🧵 by our head of research @r_sale
@r_sale 1/ The collapse of @terra_money $UST and the withdrawals halt at @CelsiusNetwork $CEL are bank runs.

However caused, once in progress, running for the exit is a perfectly rational response.

A "fire sale" of assets is rarely going to cover the remaining liabilities. Image
@r_sale @terra_money @CelsiusNetwork 2/ @Tether_to is another crypto quasi-bank that is at risk of a run. Assets are less liquid than its liabilities ($USDT is expected to be redeemed on demand).

Assets are also more volatile and riskier than the $1 peg, with interest rate, spread, credit and market risk. Image

There has been a lot of buzz about MEV.

But what is it?
How does it work?
And why should you care?

A 🧵 by @chandipandi15
@chandipandi15 1/ What is MEV?

Maximal/miner extractable value (MEV) is the profit a miner makes from the privilege of being able to order transactions before executing them.
@chandipandi15 2/ How does MEV affect users?

MEV affects anyone who has ever made an on-chain swap. When you sign a transaction, it's sent to a node which puts it in a public pool of transactions called the mempool.

Miners then pick transactions from the mempool to create and verify a block.

How should we value DeFi protocols?

Let's try unpack this.

🧵 below (1/6)
1/ One convenient way in TradFi is to compare price earnings (P/E) ratios between alternatives. A low P/E could indicate a value investment opportunity.…
2/ Fast and volatile growth expectations play havoc with such comparisons. A low P/E might simply indicate lower growth prospects.

Nevertheless, DeFi analysts still often use P/E as one value measure…

The Solana network has experienced two major outages over the past 9 months.

In this thread we take a look at the solutions set to be introduced.

🧵 (1/6)
2/ The transition to Google’s QUIC from Solana’s custom raw UPD-based protocol will allow for faster communications between RPC nodes and leader nodes.
3/ Stake-weighted QoS will end the practice of indiscriminately accepting transactions on a first-come-first-serve basis, without regard for source. This will allow nodes to transmit transactions to the leader node on a pro-rata stake basis, without the risk of being washed out.
