Basic AMM Defi and Money Market functions were activated few weeks back in Parallel Finance
My last article talked about Parallel Finance coming to life with its DEFI functionalities having ignited into action with the protocol enabling its platform for AMM functions.
Here, liquidity and swap functions got functional. Apart from that Parallel Finance’s Money Market module came live, so lending and borrowing of assets were made possible.
cDOTs received for DOT crowdloan contributions can now be employed in Parallel Finance
Holders were able to utilise their cDOT in Parallel Finance’s Defi by providing liquidity for various asset pairs with their cDOT.
Various cDOTs received by contributing to different parachain projects denoted by corresponding numbers
To denote the cDOTs received for the DOT holders contribution to a number of parachain projects in the crowdloans, cDOTs that’s received for contribution to a particular parachain has a distinct number.
For example this DOT holder has received cDOTs for the holder’s DOT contribution to 2 parachains Astar and Efinity.
The cDOTs that this DOT contributor received for his/her contribution to Astar is denoted by cDOT-6/13 while the cDOTs received for this DOT holder’s contribution to Efinity is denoted by cDOT-7/14.
Liquidity pairs for LP providers to provide liquidity with their various cDot assets
cDots received can be used to provide liquidity in Parallel Finance
Now, this person can contribute liquidity for the received various cDOT pairs in Parallel Finance’s liquidity module. These pairs range from cDOT-6/13 to DOT, cDOT-6/13 to Para, similarly it will be for other cDOTs received for the contributor’s contribution to other parachain projects.
Liquidity providers earn LP rewards.
Yield Money Market functions with LP rewards earning yields when lent in Parallel’s Money Market
Now it’s possible for one to earn yields on the earned LP rewards by lending them in the Money Market module of Parallel Finance.
Yields with Para rewards for lending earned LP rewards in Parallel Finance
For instance, one can earn 12.2% Para by lending their LP-DOT/cDOT-7/14 and earn 14.7% Para for lending their LP-PARA/cDOT-6/13 as shown in the screen shot.
So, whatever LP rewards the liquidity provider has earned for providing liquidity to DOT/cDOT-7/14 pair and the PARA/cDOT-6/13 para can be lent in Parallel Finance’s Money Market to earn more Para rewards.
[Tweet] Assets available for lending and borrowing in Parallel’s Money Market.
Of course the LP rewards that’s lent are available for borrowing as well, as can be seen in the screenshot. Currently, the interest rate for borrowing these assets is 2% APY.
Parallel Finance has explained all this in better words in their tweets.
So, now with the merging of farming and Money Market, “Yield Money Market” is created, making it possible for Parallel Finance’s users to earn more rewards with their assets.
Users get the best of both worlds of staking assets in liquidity pools and then lending the earned LP rewards in the Money Market, which will give them further yields as they participate in the “Yield Money Market” functions of Parallel Finance.
