Pendle on Avalanche
Just in time for ski season, the Pendle crew is joining the Avalanche party!
The goal: increase the richness and depth of the AVAX trails by building a Yield Layer for the community.
Pendle is the first yield trading protocol on Avalanche, allowing users to:
- Lock and receive future yield immediately
- Accumulate leveraged yield exposure
The first Avax native protocols that we’ll be supporting will be revealed in the coming days, stay tuned!
Improvements for the Launch
For the Pendle Community, this launch on Avalanche comes with some drastic improvements to look forward to. We’re sailing down the mountain with upgraded equipment — 1 click wrappers, single asset claims and drastically lowered fees.
Since going live 4 months ago, we’ve been pleased to see the protocol working as intended with Pendle AMM settling more than $100m in notional trades via YT.
However, there are 2 issues we are tackling with this launch:
- Complexity for users. Pe,P for instance, takes 4 steps to complete.
- High fees make it expensive for users to experiment on ETH.
Reducing the Complexity and Fees will remove a big barrier to entry for new users to try the protocol and for others to experiment on various trading strategies.
400x Cost Improvement
Alongside the launch, we’ll be introducing Zap functions to simplify actions on our app.
This, alongside the lower fees on Avalanche should reduce gas cost by approx ~400x. The entire Pe,P process on Ethereum costs ~$800 and according to our simulation, costs ~$2 on Avalanche. We hope that this, coupled with the Zap functions will improve the overall user experience on Pendle.
