In March, Snowball launched the first stable asset, automated market maker (AMM) on Avalanche. Peaking at nearly $5 million total value locked (TVL), the vault boasts a modest 18% APR without synergy from lending solutions.

StableVault provides important infrastructure for the DeFi ecosystem and makes it easy to swap stable assets with low fees and low slippage. Ultimately, as lending protocols move into the space, StableVault will play an even bigger role by integrating with these platforms and further boosting its APR.

In the interim, we are sticking true to our vision by continuing to expand our product suite and become a major DeFi player on Avalanche.

Today we are announcing a new StableVault product, the s3F StableVault. This vault is a 3 token pool that allows you to swap between FRAX, TUSD, and USDT.

What is the s3F StableVault?

The s3F StableVault is the liquidity pool for FRAX, TUSD, and USDT stablecoins. By depositing any one of these stablecoins into the vault, you are adding liquidity so that other people can trade between different stablecoins. Additionally, you receive a receipt token called s3F. This token represents the current pool allocation.

By supplying liquidity, you are entitled to a cut of the fees from people who make transactions in the StableVault.

Staking s3F

At launch, the s3F StableVault will not receive incentive rewards from staking. However, this is subject to change through a governance proposal.
