mStable is a platform that unites stablecoins, lending and swapping into one standard. It reduces the complexity and fragmentation in the usability of stablecoins. mUSD is the stablecoin of mStable platform.
SAVE is mStable’s savings account. Any user can get an opportunity to earn a native rate on his or her mUSD. The average daily APY of mUSD saving over the past 7 days is 8.24%.
How to earn from this stablecoin savings? You can access this SAVE rate by minting mUSD 1:1 with your stablecoins. When you deposit basket assets (bASSETS) such as USDT, USDC, TUSD and DAI to mint mUSD, these bASSETS get loaned out to various decentralized lending platforms such as Aave and Compound, which pay out interest. Then you can start earning accrued in real-time.
The earning APY by the time of writing is 21.89% (the APY changes in real-time).
The same as mUSD, you can convert your USDT, USDC, and DAI to OUSD to start earning yields.
Your funds are managed by automated strategies in transparent OUSD smart contracts. It will invest your stablecoins to Compound, Aave and dYdX to earn the best ROI. It will also supply stablecoin liquidity to Uniswap, Balancer and Curve to earn trading fees. In this process, COMP, BAL, CRV, and other rewards tokens will be accrued and converted to stablecoins for additional yield earning.
And all the DeFi yields are automatically converted to OUSD and stored in your wallet. There’s no minimum holding period or minimum OUSD amount required to earn yields. What’s more, there’s no staking or lock-ups required for your OUSD balance, so you can use your OUSD directly without having to unstake or unlock capital.
