Yield Protocol

Use Case

You want to build your own money market and offer a fixed saving rate to any dETH holder. You take dETH deposits from many participants and issue an LP token. After 1 year you allow people to redeem the voucher for more dETH. Leveraged borrowing can then happen on those LP tokens to get more dETH etc.

This can be extended to build a self re-paying loan protocol where the savETH yield can re-pay a loan taken out against dETH. The sky is the limit!


The use case mentioned above almost completely covers everything. High level overview of operation:

  • Allow dETH deposits from users and mint shares 1:1 for 1 year

  • Let DAO move dETH into savETH registry to earn yield in an index

  • At some point DAO admin brings back dETH plus interest from the index by calling a single function

  • Users can burn yvDETH to get their dETH + inflation
