Futher Steps

Date: 21.7.2022

The 50,000 KSM liquidity loan will be deployed to Zenlink in the existing Swap vKSM-KSM pair:

  • The total 50,000 KSM will be split in half: 25,000 KSM provided as KSM liquidity, and the other 25,000 KSM will be converted into vKSM and provided as the vKSM position.
  • The total liquidity position will be 25,000 KSM - and roughly 25,000 vKSM (in live rate) to the existing Zenlink Swap vKSM-KSM Pair. (Zenlink) ;

Date: Estimated 8.8.2022

Zenlink protocol has completed a stable AMM function (the AMM adopts the curve of Curve, for further information Hybrid AMM). This development is still in the process of auditing, and will be live in an estimated 2.5 weeks.

The pre-existing 50,000 KSM-vKSM LP will be removed (step 1) to KSM-vKSM Hybrid AMM Pool.

Step 3: Taiga Stable Asset

Date: After 8.8.2022

Taiga is deploying a Stable AMM pallet on BIfrost, taiKSM can be minted via vKSM-KSM pair. Learn more about Taiga and taiKSM.

The 50,000 KSM position in Zenlink Hybrid AMM will be seperated to Taiga Stable Asset. The split percentage will be decided by the community. We will propose a discussion on the Bifrost forum in advance.

At present, the current utility of taiKSM is collateral staking on Karura (Karura Platform). Bifrost and Taiga are pushing for both vKSM and taiKSM as direct collateral for aUSD (the community will be informed on this progress).

Step 4: Enable taiKSM aUSD borrowing and lending

Date: Final Quarter of 2022

In regards to the progress of taiKSM or vKSM as collateral, we would propose another community discussion on splitting the remaining LPs in Step #3 to Taiga stable swap. The portion of the LP removed should be decided by the community, or whether to keep the LP on Zenlink or move it completely to Taiga.

Acala and Bifrost are actively discussing the collateral process and requirements for vKSM to become a collateral for aUSD such as building a vKSM-aUSD pool on Karura (for liquidations) and going through the collateral risk assessment framework of Gauntlet. The team will continue to coordinate with Taiga/Tapio in regards to their process for taiKSM collateralization for aUSD minting and for later use cases around borrowing and lending.

Step 5: Discussions with Purestake regarding xcvKSM on Moonriver network

According to the discussions that took place on the Purestake Cross-chain Security threat workshop held on the 23rd of June 2022 , there are several XCM risks that need to be evaluated by parachains. As a result, discussions regarding the security of parachain sovereign account and representation assets are still very much under discussion and no firm solution has been reached amongst parachains.

Step 6 and further: Enable cross-chained vKSM utilities (through XCM- xcvKSM)

vKSM as a borrowing and lending asset on Moonwell will depend on our efforts in having vKSM approved and part of Chainlinks price oracle feeds as well as reaching a significant TVL of $5M on Solarbeam.
