Key Risks

Slashing will happen if a validator misbehaves (e.g. goes offline, attacks the network, or runs modified software) in the network. …


TLDR:

  • bZx appears to have suffered losses due to manipulation of their markets.
  • All RAY funds have been withdrawn from bZx and are safe.
  • bZx deposits are disabled until we completely understand any risks to RAY funds.

It was an exciting ETH Denver! On Friday night, a user used a flash loan transaction to manipulate bZx’s contracts allowing the withdrawal of $350,000 more than they should have been entitled. bZx provided a post-mortem of the manipulation and indicated that funds were safe. …


January 2020 — Stay updated with Staked monthly updates!

We hope everyone is having a great start to 2020. This update covers our progress at Staked during January.

This past month, we:

  • Added support for Dai and the Dai Savings Rate to RAY. We also rolled out a bridge to let users convert Sai RAYs to Dai RAYs. More information here.
  • Released the Synthetix email alert system, making it easy to remember to claim rewards and monitor collateral. Learn more here.
  • Launched support for Cardano (ADA) Shelley Incentivized Testnet. Learn more here.
  • Officially became one of the fifteen V-Systems supernodes. Learn more here.
  • Kicked off our DeFi experiment by depositing 1,000 Dai to RAY, Compound, dYdX, and bZx. We will be providing regular updates and posting real-time results to our website. …


If you look at the rates published on the Compound and bZx websites, it would seem in the last few days RAY should have been allocating funds to bZx, and people have noticed. For example, yesterday bZx was offering a 9.24% APR on DAI while Compound* was offering an 8.45% APR.

RAY is working as advertised — finding the highest rate at all times. The issue: right now, Compound actually pays lenders a higher rate than what they publish.

Compound calculates a rate per block which assumes new blocks are created every 15 seconds. Recently, however, related to the Ethereum hard fork Muir Glacier**, Ethereum has been generating blocks closer to every 13 seconds. This means payments occur ~13.3% more frequently than the Compound protocol expects, and the resulting rate paid becomes ~14.2% higher than expected. For example, currently Compound displays an 8.45% APR while it’s truly closer to a 9.40% APR. Other platforms such as dYdX and bZx calculate a rate over time, so the block production rate doesn’t impact their interest rates. …

We are excited to share that Staked will be sponsoring ETHDenver, the largest Web3 hackathon.

Staked loves the Ethereum ecosystem and wants to connect with others who do too. We’re building staking infrastructure for the ETH 2.0 transition and offer a set of smart contracts called RAY (Robo-Advisor for Yield) that automatically gets the highest yield across Compound, dYdX, Fulcrum, and the Dai Savings Rate.

What should I expect?

Both technical and business members of the Staked team will be at ETHDenver all weekend. Learn more about Staked, ETH 2.0, RAY, or just grab some swag! We will have a sponsor table and will also host a workshop on ETH 2.0 …

Multi-Collateral Dai (Dai) went live on November 18th, 2019, introducing additional collateral types and the Dai Savings Rate to the MakerDAO protocol.

The purpose of this post is to inform owners of Sai RAYs about the Robo-Advisor for Yield’s support for Multi-Collateral Dai and Dai Savings Rate, as well as how to upgrade. This post is also relevant to anyone who holds Dai currently that wants to deposit into RAY.

Note: We refer to Multi-Collateral Dai as Dai and Single-Collateral Dai as Sai.

What is changing?

Staked has introduced support for Dai for the Compound, bZx, dYdX, and Dai Savings Rate opportunities.

How can I convert my SAI RAY to a DAI RAY?

Staked has built a bridge that lets users convert Sai RAYs to Dai RAYs. The bridge is intended to save users gas costs, time, and effort. Below are detailed instructions and screenshots outlining the conversion process. …
