Collateral Onboarding Handbook

State of the Peg

  • DAI peg has been hovering closer and closer to the true peg. As low as 1.001 and up to 1.003.

  • Dai dipped below a billion but back up again. More ETH vaults than USDC at the moment.
    • 410 million from ETH-A
    • 7 million from ETH-B
    • 2.9 million from BAT
    • 392 million from USDC
    • 116 million from WBTC
    • 52 million from TUSD
    • 21 million from PAX-A
    • 5.8 million from LINK
    • 6.9 million from YFI (20 million ceiling incoming) :eyes:

  • Other vault types total about 1.2 million.

  • Volume at around $333 million this last week :chart_with_upwards_trend: .
  • Average VWAP (Volume-Weighted-Average-Price) places Dai at $1.001. :arrow_heading_down:

  • ETH vaults collateralization ratio rising with the price rally.

  • Liquidation Walls at $324 ETH.

  • Witness the steepness, where a $6 price decline pushes liquidations off the cliff.
  • Other vaults collateralization ratios are close to 200% (WBTC, LINK, etc.) and require a much more significant price decline to be relevant threats. | |
