Today, we are extremely excited to announce Ribbon Lend β€” Ribbon's expansion into the credit market.

Ribbon Lend can be thought of as "uncollateralized Aave", allowing depositors to lend unsecured to institutional market makers of their choosing with high liquidity.
Ribbon Lend allows users to get:

1. High yields from unsecured lending πŸ“ˆ
2. No lockups, using Aave’s money market model πŸ”’
3. Off-chain enforcement / credit underwriting ✍️
4. Built-in insurance 🏦
We are working with @CredoraPlatform to evaluate credit of the institutional borrowers, ensuring that only borrowers with the best credit rating can create pools on the platform.
Ribbon Vaults + Ribbon Lend = πŸš€

By vertically integrating our existing structured products with a credit market, we are able to drive consistent capital flow into Ribbon Lend.
Ribbon Lend is a primitive that any DeFi protocol can build on top of.

We will be the first ones to demonstrate this composability by combining Ribbon Earn + Ribbon Lend.

Long term, we expect Ribbon Lend to dominate the on-chain debt market.
We aim to launch Ribbon Lend at the end of the month.

Today, we are super excited to announce Ribbon V3. Ribbon V3 is packed with new features which we think will continue cementing our lead as the #1 DOV protocol in the industry.

Here's a preview of some of the most important features πŸ‘‡
Leverage πŸ“ˆ

We are enabling users to sell the same amount of options using half the collateral than required before. This means that users will effectively be able to sell 2x the number of options that they were before = 2x leverage.

Caution: This is very risky!
Auction Flow Reservation πŸ›’

We are creating a way for people to "call dibs" on Ribbon Auction flow, even before it happens. This enables both users *and* smart contracts to participate in Ribbon Auctions with ease = composability.

This also enables payment for order flow πŸ‘€

Today we're excited to share that we've officially launched Ribbon Treasury on mainnet β€” a product for DAOs/treasuries to generate income on their assets by selling options

Our first launch partner is none other than @perpprotocol, the leading on-chain perpetual futures DEX πŸš€ Image
Ribbon Treasury is now live on Ethereum mainnet at treasury.ribbon.finance

However, we have kept access to Ribbon Treasury to early partners for now

Here’s a sneak peek of what the UI looks like under the hood Image
To start, the Perpetual team has seeded the vault with >$1m of PERP (200k PERP) as a trial run for the first month

The premiums earned for the first month was $17k, representing over 1% yield πŸ€‘

Today we are unveiling a new plan for RBN tokenomics, which we call Ribbonomics

This plan presents a roadmap for how RBN can be more deeply integrated within the Ribbon ecosystem

πŸ‘‡ Image
There are three main features in the Ribbonomics plan:

1. RBN Staking πŸ₯©
2. Vote locking & Reward Boosting πŸ”’
3. Protocol Backstop πŸ›‘οΈ

ribbonfinance.medium.com/ribbonomics-b0… Image
RBN Staking is a way for users to lock up their RBN tokens and receive sRBN (staked RBN).

sRBN uses fully on-chain governance, specifically Governor Bravo, which allows proposals to get executed autonomously instead of through loose consensus.

Today we are excited to announce Ribbon Finance, a new project focused on creating structured products in DeFi.

Thread πŸ‘‡

1/ Over the last year, we have seen an explosion in new DeFi derivatives protocols. Derivatives like perpetual swaps, zero coupon bonds, options, and others have grown significantly.
2/ While sophisticated traders are able to leverage these tools to their advantage, most people do not know how to incorporate derivatives into their overall portfolio strategy to improve risk-return.
