This Week: One Fee, Even Greater Opportunities to Earn Yield

Also: New partner revenue-sharing proposal, how DeFi users can ‘weather the storm’ with Vesper

Universal Fee Structure Applied to all Vesper Pools

This week marked the last round of universal fee upgrades to the Vesper app. We’ve eliminated all withdrawal and platform fees, and introduced a single, universal fee instead. The universal fee will charge a 2% annual fee on the assets deposited at the time of rebalance. Users are rest assured that their principal is never touched. If this fee is greater than 50% of the interest earned, then the fee will only equate to 50% of the interest earned.

Taken from Vesper’s year-in-review:

Users will always earn positive yield, from initial deposit, regardless of the performance of the pool. Protocols can easily and predictably route funds through Vesper to generate additional yield to participants. For partners, this single fee gives us the opportunity to build out the most powerful partner revenue share program in the space.

Creating a Partner Revenue Sharing Framework

Vesper published a governance proposal for a partner revenue share framework, which if passed will allow select partners to earn revenue by driving their user’s TVL to Vesper’s pools. If passed, Vesper will be able to give incentives to partners to drive significant TVL to the platform. The proposed framework is noted below.

Read the proposal.

Defense In Depth

Vesper co-founder Jordan Kruger was featured in The Defiant through her op-ed on “defense in depth” best practices for DeFi protocols to survive these tumultuous market conditions.

From the article:

“Much of DeFi was built out during the DeFi Summer of 2020 and, therefore, the sector was saddled with many inaccurate, underlying assumptions. So … what does it take to build sustainable DeFi services?”

Vesper has always maintained security and safety as core tenets of the protocol, best highlighted through our 50+ audits covering every instance where assets are deployed.

Our other security practices include extensive and proactive monitoring of strategies, emphasis on synergistic strategies, conservative collateral benchmarks, and automation of everything that can be: such as self-servicing loans.
