Sperax Monthly Newsletter | January 2022

The Sperax USD launch is a success.

We have been busy the last few weeks during final contract testing and deployment. At the same time, our community has been extremely engaged on Discord and Twitter as we announce huge steps in Sperax’s growth.

The next month will bring new challenges and opportunities for everyone in the Sperax community. We are excited to announce the APY on auto-yielding $USDs soon, the first of its kind.

In the meantime, let’s celebrate!

Liquidity Mining is Live

Shortly after releasing $USDs, a suite of Sperax Liquidity Mining opportunities went live with Uniswap v3 Arbitrum, offering both pool 2 style farms and a unique stablecoin pool with major upside potential.

The $SPA/$USDs pool filled its first tier of emissions budget in only 6 hours–over 15 million $SPA claimed with LP tokens in varying lockups.

Sperax’s stablecoin pool still has over 8 million $SPA available, with 30% APR in $SPA terms on $USDs/$USDC 190 day lockup.

Check out the farms, and read this Medium article and our Gitbook for more information.

New Budget Allocation for $SPA/$USDs

By popular demand, the $SPA/$USDs pool budget was refueled with a secondary rewards structure at noon EST, Wednesday February 2, 2022. After the first budget was filled in 6 hours, the secondary budget filled in 14 minutes. The community is clearly excited about Sperax!

$SPA/$USDs Secondary Budget Allocation

Total Budget: 150m SPA

Secondary Budget: 15m SPA
While rewards remain the same,
lockup periods have been extended
for the secondary budget.

No Lockup: 50% Base APR

90 day lockup: 2x, 100% APR

150 day lockup: 3x, 150% APR

210 day lockup: 4x, 200% APR

240 day lockup: 5x, 250% APR

Key Metrics

In a few short weeks, the $USDs stability mechanism weathered a major market downturn, maintaining a tight peg.

Over $4.5M has been locked in $USDs so far, as users look to earn from liquidity mining incentives and capture future rebase yields on $USDs.

The $SPA/$USDs pool saw 97% of $SPA rewards locked with the 150-day lockup option, indicating that many users are eager for huge rewards over a 5 month time horizon.

$USDs/$USDC pool rewards are being sought after on the 30-day lockup period, with 2.25m TVL in the Uniswap pool already.

Growth Partnership with Saddle Finance

Community members voted ‘YES’ to a proposal on the Saddle Community Form to move forward with a Saddle Finance metapool.

Saddle is the natural next step for $USDs growth on Arbitrum. By forming the Arbitrum $USDs metapool, Sperax aligns its community by pooling resources with Saddle Finance. The proposal delivers better incentives, aligns community interests, enables deep liquidity, and paves the way for future products and collaborations.


Six Month Liquidity Incentive Campaign Using Saddle Minichef Contracts:

  • Saddle provides 3,479,339 $SDL , equaling 19k $SDL/day.
  • Sperax provides S40,000,000 $SPA , equaling 222,222 $SPA/day

Check out the proposal here.
