Messari published an interesting graphic that highlighted how the RWA shift has increased lending APYs.

Last week saw the launch of new lending protocols and ETH Mainnet: Instadapp is launching Fluid and Morpho is launching Morpho Blue.

FRAX has rolled out sFRAX in an attempt to replicate DAI’s supply increase after the DAI Savings Rate was re-introduced earlier this year.

USDR, a stablecoin backed by DAI and real estate, depegged by 50% as the DAI reserve was drained by users who swapped USDR into DAI.

Stablecoin monitoring

GUSD liquidity stagnated around $2.4m. sUSD liquidity declined from $6.6m to $4.6m. LUSD liquidity recovered from $5.9m to $9.2m. sUSD backing declined from 400% to 367%. LUSD backing also remained largely unchanged at 250%.

There are no significant oracle deviations between DEX and CEX prices.


stETH remains the heavyweight collateral across Gearbox with a share of 64.2% (+440bps vs last week). The growing importance of stETH requires monitoring to avoid the build-up of significant cluster risks.
