One of the currently most popular decentralized finance (DeFi) projects, yearn.finance (YFI), revealed StableCredit, a new protocol for decentralized lending, stablecoins and automated market makers (AMMs).
“StableCredit is a protocol that combines tokenized debt securities, loans, SMPs and unilateral SMP exposure to create a fully decentralized credit protocol,” said Founder of yearn.finance, Andre Cronje, in the latest product announcement.
After more detailed explanation of each of the components mentioned in the above combination, Cronje added that a user can deliver any asset and create tokenized credit called StableCredit USD, although other currencies are also supported such as EUR and JPY .
The process starts as soon as a user provides a certain amount in USD currency (USDC), then a USDC price oracle is used to determine the USD value of 1 USDC, and the process continues to strike x * USD value StableCredit USD, where the system calculates utilization of the delivered USDC (up to 75%), and the strike as StableCredit USD.
“Right now, your StableCredit USD is your” loan loan, “said the developer, which can be used to borrow other assets through the AMM,” so if another user provides LINK as collateral, you can borrow LINK by selling ” “. your loan credit. If you want to repay your debt, you can” sell “the LINK back for StableCredit USD, pay off your debt and receive your USDC.”
Makoto Inoue, developer at Ethereum Name Service en Backlash Co-founder, Posted a Twitter thread giving a peek into the new idea, stating that although StableCredit hasn’t been released yet, “thanks [Cronje] “testing in prod”, we can get a taste of what they have cooked. “
