Approximately 99.8% revenue was generated from lending activities, and the remaining 0.2% from stablecoin minting.
dForce pioneers in staking by introducing a hybrid model featuring both Free Staking (stake and unstake at any time) and Lock-up Staking (veToken model with a lock-up period from 1 week up to 4-year), which is the first of its kind in DeFi.
Compared with Free Staking, veDF token holders (participants in Lock-up Staking) will receive a boost on both staking rewards and voting weights.
Currently, around 29% of total circulated DF tokens (or 124m DF tokens) has entered into the dForce Staking Portal (available on the Ethereum mainnet only). Free Staking has a total of US$100 mil Free-Staked with APY of 4.92%, and Lock-up Staking has a total of US$23 mil staked with average lock-up period of 1.23 years and APY of 26.34%.
dForce has added Polygon and Optimism to the existing ongoing liquidity mining initiatives on Ethereum, Arbitrum, and Binance Smart Chain (BSC). Please visit dForce Forum to view the gauge (update on a weekly basis) and click here to see related tutorials.
