Umbrella Network Monthly Recap: February 2022

In this month of love, we continued doing what we do best, providing the best to our community, and more value to those who trust us.

From strategic partnerships, meaningful partnerships to more Mainnet Launches, we had a lot happen in February 2022, and here are the highlights!!

Umbrella Network Announcements

We Achieved Milestone 1 And Unlocked rUMB to UMB Conversion

The 1st Milestone — writing 40M data points on the Blockchain over a period of 7 days, has been achieved. This achievement unlocked the conversion of rUMB tokens to UMB tokens!!

Convert here if you haven’t already | Read this first though

This achievement can be attributed to an influx of recent partnerships including the integration of Uniswap pricing feeds into our decentralized oracle, adding close to another 1,000 data pairs.

This brings the total number of data pairs to over 3,500. With blocks being minted every minute and across 4 blockchains, the number of data points being written on the Blockchain successfully breached the 40M mark and is on pace to exceed more than 70M across all 4 chains.

Integration of Uniswap into Umbrella Network’s Pricing Feeds

Community validators authenticate data before it’s put on the chain. Data pulled from Uniswap’s Pools is verified by a network of community validators before data is committed on-chain and can no longer be modified.

What is and isn’t executed by smart contracts using data from Umbrella Network’s oracles can be trusted, as the data is verified, authenticated, and committed to the blockchain through a decentralized community of validators.

Umbrella Network Added UNO-USD Pricing Data To Their Decentralized Oracle

Umbrella Network and Uno Re have been partners for quite some time now. Today, we’re deepening that partnership by adding the UNO-USD pricing data as L2D, to our decentralized oracle.

Uno Re shall begin using our decentralized oracles to fetch the pricing data for all their underwriting requirements. This adds another major DeFi player to the growing list of dApps/ecosystems that utilize the Umbrella Network as the ‘source of truth’ for all their pricing data needs.

Bringing Crypto-Options on par with the S&P 500

The $UMB architecture sources the entire trading grid and derives the price sentiments that are more holistic and practically evolve the entire crypto-options ecosystem.

This is essential because

  • The level of detailing and calculations eliminates the impact of temporary outliers. The IV and the greeks provided by the $UMB are more accurate and carry a lesser risk.
  • For the first time, the crypto-markets would have access to arbitrage-free pricing for erstwhile non-existent strike prices.
  • The benefits of $UMB’s pricing of options can be reaped by retail users as well. One could visit another crypto-market and compare the options prices there, with the arbitrage-free prices on $UMB’s feeds.

Umbrella Network Governance voting

UIP 002: Vote to Prevent trading of rUMB2

This vote is to propose the option of building a mechanism into the rUMB2 token to prevent the trading of rUMB2 on decentralized exchanges on both Ethereum and BSC.

This was based on feedback from the community and governance forum (see forum discussion here) the proposal is to add a whitelist functionality to the rUMB2 token contract so that only those on the whitelist can interact with rUMB2. DEXes will not be on the whitelist and therefore will not be able to interact and swap the token.

This will not impact wallet addresses, so staking, unstaking, token transfers, will all be unaffected.

See on snapshot

UIP 003: Give voting weight to rUMB

Currently, an individual must hold Umbrella’s token UMB in their wallet or have it staked in Umbrella’s staking streams to be able to participate in the voting process.

This vote is to propose allowing rUMB holders to vote on Umbrella Network governance proposals with an assigned vote weight of 0.5 (compared to a vote weight of 1.0 for UMB). Based on feedback from the community and governance forum (see forum discussion here)

See on Snapshot

UIP 004: Vote to Burn 1m UMB Tokens

The Vote was put out to all UMB holders to decide the fate of 1 million UMB tokens from the node fund. rUMB1 currently is continuing to be distributed until the 2.0 staking vaults go live.

As a result, we cannot proceed to burn rUMB1 tokens cannot proceed as previously planned, so we now are looking to burn some of the UMB tokens from the node and partner funds that were not utilized in 2021.

Internal AMA Recap with Umbrella Network’s President, John Chen

Umbrella Network’s President, John Chen, recently held an internal AMA in the main Umbrella Network Telegram channel to answer questions from the community.

We wanted to reward the community for staking, and we also wanted to be able to properly control the conversion of that rUMB to UMB, so that there isn’t an inordinate amount of UMB being put into circulation at any given moment. We are reviewing the rewards token, and also taking feedback from the community, particularly as we move towards becoming a DAO and more community-governed, to try and improve things moving forward if possible. — John Chen
