New Developments 🛠
Curve & Convex Vaults
We are excited to announce the imminent release of Ondo’s new Curve & Convex vaults.
Last year, Ondo introduced vaults enabling investors to provide single-sided liquidity on decentralized exchanges (DEXs) while adjusting their risk/reward level. We were blown away by the positive feedback from the community, DAOs, and other investors. Our vaults have provided $200M+ in liquidity to over a dozen projects.
The new release builds on our existing features — from risk tranching and feeless auto-compounding — while introducing a number of new benefits for stableswaps: integrations with Curve & Convex, multi-pair vaults, and flexible tranche ratios.
For more details about these vaults, check out this Medium post.
On April 30, the Angle community approved a partnership with Paladin to utilize Ondo’s Liquidity-as-a-Service offering. This partnership will enable the use of $agEUR as liquidity for $PAL.
Angle will become the first project to utilize Liquidity-as-a-Service with a euro-pegged stablecoin. Angle’s approval follows an initial proposal by the Paladin community, who overwhelmingly voted to approve PGP-10 on April 30, with 14.6M (95.6%) positive votes.
