mStable Acquisition Completed by dHEDGE: The Next Chapter of DeFi Yield Vaults Begins

Introduction: We are delighted to announce that mStable has been acquired by dHEDGE, a decentralized asset management platform. This strategic acquisition marks a significant milestone for mStable, positioning us to become a leading yield vault aggregator across multiple chains and broaden our reach within the DeFi ecosystem. Furthermore, we are thrilled to reveal our roadmap for the future, encompassing several key initiatives aimed at enhancing the user experience and fostering adoption. In the coming weeks, mStable will introduce three new yield products on Optimism: Ethereum Yield, Stablecoin Yield, and Delta Neutral Yield. These offerings will deliver competitive yield options for users while taking advantage of the Optimism network’s benefits, such as reduced gas fees. Additionally, we have recently bridged MTA to Optimism and initiated a new incentives program with Velodrome to deepen MTA liquidity. Moreover, we are developing the Meta-vault’s relaunch, which will aggregate yields from multiple yield vault strategies, and a cross-chain Meta-vault capable of aggregating the best yields across any chain. We are also working on a revolutionary DeFi product: a flatcoin that represents a low-risk, decentralized stable asset that not only appreciates in value over time but also effectively hedges against inflation. The flatcoin will be backed on-chain without exposure to off-chain USD assets and will offer capital effic...

Solving the issue with slippage in EIP-4626

Introduction - EIP-4626 provides a standard way to invest a token into an investment pool, which is commonly called a vault. When you deposit your assets, which is an ERC-20 token, you receive a share token that represents your portion of the assets in the vault. The vault will invest the pooled assets into one or more underlying platforms to generate yield for the shareholders. See the full EIP-4626 specification at eips.ethereum.org. A consequence of the EIP-4626 standard is that the deposit and mint functions don’t provide a way to specify a minimum share or asset amounts in return. This is commonly used to prevent high slippage or sandwich attacks. How did mStable solve this with its Meta Vaults — staying compliant with the standard while mitigating high slippage attacks? This article describes the challenges and explains how our approach works. — EIP-4626 and mStable vaults deposits - The first of the mStable EIP-4626 vaults will invest in Convex pools based in Curve’s 3Pool. You can read more about the vaults in the proposal here. From an EIP-4626 perspective, the asset of the vault is Curve 3Pool’s liquidity provider token (3Crv). The deposit function is part of the EIP-4626 specification and specifies how many assets are to be deposited and the account that will receive the vault shares. The deposit function returns how many vault shares were minted to the receiver.function deposit(uint256 assets, a...




On-chain analysis: Stablecoin users on Convex

Key Insights - Most of the addresses stay in the pools for a maximum of 60 days., Our yield simulation showed that most addresses lose yield while administrating their position., The 3 dominant variables that influence your net yield in Convex are: how much you are depositing(TVL), how many times you are compounding(claims) and for how long you will stay in the pool(time)., There is a massive opportunity for automation and gas socialization products to create a positive-sum vault., — Introduction - Over this year, mStable has been looking into various yield sources to create a vault that will bring a good and trustful yield. After analyzing stablecoins, we concluded that Convex would be a good source of yield for them. In this article, we will cover 3 stable pools. Based on this analysis, we can point out behaviours that increase or decrease the net yield and how specific personas a different approach is more viable. We will also classify the depositors into personas according to their TVL size, calculate how long they stay in the pool, and show what yield they are getting. — Curve. — Convex is built on top of Curve, which is an AMM that provides high liquidity, low slippage, and low fee transactions among ERC-20 tokens. Curve also introduced the veToken(vote-escrowed) model. The longer you lock CRV, the more veCRV you receive. For us, the most important part is the Boosting system behind it. You can e...




A Stablecoin Framework

Assessing the risk of stablecoins on DeFi. — mStable’s first Meta Vault, to be launched soon, will be stablecoin-based. Related literature is abundant but frameworks to assess their risk are missing. mStable is a battle-tested project with a strong focus on security and an upcoming stablecoin-centric product release. Therefore, we created a Stablecoin Risk Framework to assess the depegging risk of the different possibilities. Stablecoins have been the biggest narrative in DeFi for a long time, and building a truly scalable and decentralized stablecoin remains a challenge. The UST crash has taught us that nobody is too big to fail. Designs are getting more complex over time, and it is becoming increasingly hard to stay on top of them and assess their risk. But that also means that the market might be mispricing the risk. At mStable we are building a generalizable vault architecture of which stablecoins are a central piece. Very soon, mStable is deploying the first Meta Vault, which will enable investors to get exposure to a diversified set of strategies with a single transaction. These strategies will be stablecoins pooled in Curve against 3CRV, which are then staked in Convex to claim $CRV and $CVX rewards. We developed a framework to asses the risk of these pools, which will allow us to make an informed, data-driven decision about the selection for our vaults. Eventually, this framework will become the guide we wil...




Design Refresh

A refreshed mStable identity. — — Introduction - Branding in DeFi for any user-facing and developer-facing product is an important but difficult part. This mostly stems from the very young age of the entire industry, the mostly young companies that test for product-market fit and seek to establish a brand in a continuously changing and rapidly evolving industry. This article describes mStable’s previous approach and the recent changes, what problems we faced, and present the solution. This new refreshed design and branding will mark the beginning of a new era for mStable and be the refreshed face of our new products. — The need for a refreshed identity - The current mStable branding was created at the very beginning of the project’s life. Over time, the mStable brand became outdated and we felt that it was no longer representative of our vision and products. Our team has shifted significantly and did not represent the mStable that was there in the past. As the focus of the Team and the Team itself shifted, so did the mStable brand drifted to a new direction (compare landing page, dApps, and marketing material). This was due to several reasons, some of which were mentioned previously: Products were not user-centered, user research and testing were absent., Low brand engagement since the brand does not convey a clear vision and messaging and it is reflected in its visual communication. It tried to convey ...




Exploring the ERC-4626 Universe

A deep dive into the ERC-4626 Ecosystem - Standards in traditional technology are one of the most powerful catalysts. They drive interoperability, ecosystem development, and future innovation. Crypto is no exception to this: ERC-20, ERC-721, ERC-4626. ERC standards are the condition for a successful composable and permissionless ecosystem. ERC-4626 is one of the most exciting standards for Ethereum. As a standard for tokenized vaults, it lowers the integration effort for yield-bearing vaults that are powering many DeFi projects. Beyond substantially decreasing integration costs, this standard natively creates a derivative asset, generating a new kind of liquidity independent from the underlying assets. Reflecting on the power of standards, mStable realized that broad adoption is a prerequisite for it to become a game changer in DeFi. With early adopters of the standard, we’re building the 4626-Alliance, a fertile ground for 4626-builders to foster collaboration and push the standard. In this blog post, we explore some of the vast ecosystems of DeFi projects building on the standard and what they have been up to.An ecosystem of protocols building on ERC-4626 — Timeless Finance - Timeless is a yield market protocol that lets you boost, hedge, and trade yield. Instead of just parking your money into a classic yield farm, Timeless enables users to boost their yield, hedge against falling yield rates or speculate on yield...




Strengthening the foundations for growth

The mStableDAO completes its restructuring process to strengthen the foundation for exponential growth with mStable V2. With this completed, the following entities and associated signer groups were established: TreasuryDAO (4/6 signers), ProtocolDAO (4/6 signers), Builder subDAO (2/3 signers), Ecosystem subDAO (2/3 signers), — Why restructure? - To align the interests of the protocol and governance bodies, we introduced a more active signer group with active compensation to participate more in the ecosystem. This will ensure that governors are incentivized to make the best decisions for the protocol while avoiding unnecessary overheads that was inherited with the old signer structure. — The new subDAOs will drive accountability in a more structured manner - TreasuryDAO The TreasuryDAO has absorbed the Asset Management subDAO & Funding subDAO. Treasury Management will now be backed by a Charter — currently in progress — on top of the discretionary spending limit for more transparency. This ensures that spending above the discretionary spending limit is guided by a robust framework. ProtocolDAO The ProtocolDAO remains largely similar, and its role in the ecosystem is to ensure that the core contracts are funded, the proposals that get voted in via Meta Governance make it on-chain, and that the smart contracts are executed using with a diverse multi-sig structure for robust security. Builder subD...

The other day, the founder of the crypto platform, Lado Okhotnikov, announced readiness to launch the next Tactile program. This innovative system will combine products, cashback and a unique reward structure through an affiliate program, and will also allow users to exchange virtual items for real ones. Tactile: making the Metaverse tangible According to Lado Okhotnikov, the founder of Meta Force Metaverse, the Tactile program allows users to purchase unique digital goods in NFT format which, in addition to the virtual appearance, also have a real one, that is, a physical embodiment. “As part of our program we call these NFTs “tactile goods” — they can not only be bought in Metaworld but you can actually receive them in your hands in the form of real objects. This is something like a digital certificate for a real item — for example, if you buy a digital T-shirt, mug or even jewelry, a corresponding physical item will be delivered to you in addition to the digital one,” Lado Okhotnikov noted that NFTs will finally find their use in the real world. After purchasing an NFT token, a platform participant becomes the owner of a unique digital asset, which at the same time can be physically used — donate or exchange the corresponding item in real life.

Meta AI Assistant Launches to Compete With Chatbots Like Chatgpt

    Meta Platforms, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, launched its own chatbot based on artificial intelligence (AI) technology. Meta AI provides an alternative to products like Openai’s Chatgpt and is setting out to offer interaction tailored to attend to different interests and solve specific tasks. Zuckerberg Unveils Meta AI Chatbot, AI Personas at Meta Connect Event Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the launch of the U.S. tech giant’s new AI-powered assistant in a keynote speech at the Meta Connect developers conference on Wednesday. The chatbot will compete against the already established player in the space, Chatgpt, and other offerings like Google’s upcoming Gemini. It became clear from Zuckerberg’s presentation that Meta’s approach to the development of AI differs from the rest of the industry in that the company does not believe in a “singular superintelligence” for everyone.

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of the company, stated that artificial intelligence (AI) was currently the company's most prominent investment, even over the metaverse. Meta Announces 10,000 Layoffs, Striving to Achieve Sustainability Meta, the parent company of platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Whatsapp, has announced a new set of moves as part of its 'year of efficiency' policy. In a Facebook post, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced a new round of 10,000 layoffs, which will be executed during the remainder of 2023. Furthermore, he stated that 5,000 open hiring spots will be closed. Zuckerberg explained that these layoffs were the consequence of the new economic configuration that the U.S. and the world are currently facing. In this sense, Zuckerberg declared: Higher interest rates lead to the economy running leaner, more geopolitical instability leads to more volatility, and increased regulation leads to slower growth and increased costs of innovation. Given this outlook, we'll need to operate more efficiently than our previous headcount reduction to ensure success.

However, crypto markets were hurt by the bankruptcy of major players like the FTX exchange, later in 2022. The move regarding NFTs, part of the tech giant’s decision to adjust its priorities and seek efficiency, was announced by Stephane Kasriel, head of Commerce and Financial Technologies at Meta. On Monday, he tweeted: Some product news: across the company, we're looking closely at what we prioritize to increase our focus. We’re winding down digital collectibles (NFTs) for now to focus on other ways to support creators, people, and businesses.

Meta to Let Go of 10,000 Employees to Boost Efficiency

    In the face of economic challenges in the US, Meta, the social media behemoth, has announced job cuts to stay competitive and continue to invest in the metaverse. On March 14th, Meta CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg revealed that the company will dismiss 10,000 employees to increase efficiency in 2023. Zuckerberg stated that Meta's primary goals are to enhance its technology prowess and improve financial performance amid the harsh economic climate in the country. These actions align with the company's long-term vision. He further explained that the company must bolster productivity and developer tools to attain its goals. It also must eliminate unnecessary processes and non-essential roles by streamlining its operations. 'In the coming months, our organizational leaders will unveil restructuring plans aimed at flattening our organizations, scrapping lower-priority projects, and lowering our recruitment rates. Given this hiring reduction, I have made the tough decision to further cut down the size of our recruiting team.' Massive Layoffs Begin Tomorrow Meta's CEO announced that the most recent of a larger wave of layoffs affecting 10,000 employees will begin tomorrow, with the dismissals spanning three months.

Meta Reportedly Preparing for a New Round of Layoffs

    Meta, the company that owns Whatsapp, Instagram, and Facebook, is reportedly preparing to announce a new round of layoffs in the coming days.

The move, which is currently called 'the flattening' internally, is also affecting the morale of the employees, who criticized how the vision for the 'year of efficiency,' a term used by Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg to describe the goals of the company for 2023, is being executed. One employee stated: Honestly, it’s still a mess. The year of efficiency is kicking off with a bunch of people getting paid to do nothing. One of the key employees of the metaverse and virtual reality (VR) division of the company, John Carmack, left Meta in December due to operational inefficiencies despite ... read More

Meta Lost $13.7B on Metaverse Initiative in 2022

    Mark Zuckerberg's Metaverse bid proved costly for the company amidst a persistent bear market as Reality Labs lost $13.7 billion in 2022. According to Meta's earnings release, the company's metaverse arm recorded an operating loss of $4.28 billion in the fourth quarter, dragging down its total for the year. Facebook was rebranded as Meta in the fall of 2021 as Zuckerberg doubled down on efforts to create a digital universe where people can work, shop, play, and learn. However, as Metaverse adoption has slowed down in 2022 due to the turbulent market conditions, the company's investors called for a curb in spending in the segment. Burning Billions in Metaverse In the fourth quarter, Reality Labs generated $727 million, while its revenue for the entirety of the year stood at $2.16 billion, a decline from $2.27 billion in 2021. Despite the losses, the CEO has no plans to change its long-term course in the space. He said, 'Our priorities haven't changed since last year. The two major technological waves driving our roadmap are AI today and over the longer term the metaverse.' The company shipped Quest Pro at the end of last year, which is being touted as the first mainstream mixed reality device. Zuckerberg maintained that the focus will be to 'deliver better social experiences than what's possible today on phones.' Next-generation consumer headset is also expected to hit the market later this year called 'Meta Reality,' which the exec believes can potentially 'establish the tech... read More

Twitter Not the Only One: Meta (Facebook) Sacks 11,000 Employees

    As a ‘last resort' option, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced that his company will be slashing 11,000 employees from its workforce. That’s 13% of the company. In a blog post shared with employees on Wednesday, Zuckerberg said Meta was taking steps to become “leaner” and more efficient, but regrets that he now must lay off employees.  Zuckerberg explained that the company had been shifting resources into “high priority growth areas,” including the metaverse, while cutting costs in other areas. However, he acknowledged that these measures wouldn’t be enough to bring the company’s expenses “in line with revenue growth.” “I view layoffs as a last resort, so we decided to rein in other sources of cost before letting teammates go,” he said. “Overall, this will add up to a meaningful cultural shift in how we operate.”  The CEO said all employees would receive an email detailing how the mass layoff would impact them, including severance and health insurance information. The Recruiting department will be “disproportionately affected.” Meta’s stock is down 69% since last year, bleeding alongside other tech companies since the Federal Reserve began tightening monetary policy this year.   Crypto companies have been forced to enact proportionally larger layoffs this year, such as Coinbase and OpenSea. Fellow social media giant Twitter is also eliminating a vast ... read More

Facebook Parent Meta Gears for Mass Layoffs Amidst Revenue Drop: WSJ

    After Twitter's mass layoffs caused a stir in the tech world, Meta appears to be following suit. According to a Wall Street Journal report, the owner of Facebook and Instagram will begin trimming staff in the second week of November. Meta's Mark Zuckerberg earlier stated that the social media giant's staff could be smaller next year. Rationalizing office space was yet another area that the company was focusing on. Meta to Sack Thousands of Employees At the end of September, Meta reported over 87,000 employees, during which the company froze hiring. The company also asked its employees to cancel any non-essential travel starting this week. The upcoming layoff is expected to affect thousands of them, and the official announcement may come as early as Wednesday.

Mad Money's Jim Cramer Apologizes for Being Wrong About Facebook Parent ...

    The host of Mad Money, Jim Cramer, has apologized to investors for being wrong about Facebook parent Meta Platforms after its stock plunged to a record low. 'I made a mistake here. I was wrong,' he said emotionally after stating previously that Meta was a good investment. 'I failed to help people. And I own that.'Jim Cramer's Apology About Meta: 'I Was Wrong' The host of CNBC's Mad Money show, Jim Cramer, apologized to investors Thursday for recommending Facebook parent Meta Platforms Inc. (Nasdaq: META) after the stock kept tanking following the company's Q3 earnings release. Cramer is a former hedge fund manager who co-founded Thestreet.com, a financial news and literacy website. Appearing emotional on CNBC Market Alert, Cramer admitted that he made a wrong call about the Meta stock, telling investors previously that the social media company was a good investment. He said: I made a mistake here. I was wrong. I trusted this management team. That was ill-advised. The hubris here is extraordinary, and I apologize. When asked what he got wrong about his previous advice, Cramer replied: 'I believed that there was a recognition that there is an amount that you can't spend … I trusted them, not myself. For that I regret. I've been in this business for 40 years and I did a bad job. I'm not proud.' He added: 'I did believe that there would be some discipline … I expected discipline.'

Meta Stocks Plummet 20% as Reality Labs Cost Billions for the Third Quar...

    It’s been exactly a year since Facebook rebranded itself as Meta following the announcement of its new flagship product, Horizon Worlds, which it plans to expand massively. For now, the platform is still trying to grow its audience without much success, with the Wall Street Journal reporting that the total user base of Horizon Worlds hovers around 200,000, most of whom jump ship after their first month on the platform. This is in stark contrast with the planned 500,000 users milestone originally set for the end of 2022, which has now been dropped to 280,000. Adoption of the platform is also hindered by the hefty price tag of a VR headset necessary to access it, which puts it in direct competition with free alternatives with a steady user base, such as VRChat. Q3 Results Are in, and They Don’t Look Good Meta’s quarterly earnings report has just been published, and the data doesn’t reflect well at all on the company’s VR-bespectacled world. According to the report, Reality Labs – the business division of Meta in charge of developing Horizon Worlds – has had its worst quarter yet. Although the VR side of Meta’s business brought in about $285 million in Q3, Reality Labs has also left its parent company in the hole for a reported $3.67 billion. When combined with the performance of Reality Labs over the entire 2022, we see that it has cost Meta nearly $9.44 billion this year alone. However, there are still two months left – and... read More
