The YieldBlox testnet beta just ended, and wow — what a ride! Our community was extremely involved throughout the beta. Altogether, they managed to farm over 472,000 YBX using a variety of strategies. The beta was also very insightful for our team: we plan to make a few changes to…


Platform tokens are a key innovation of the DeFi ecosystem and have powered much of its growth. The flexibility of their tokenomics models has enabled protocols to use platform tokens for a huge number of purposes, such as creating liquidity (Curve), incentivizing usage (Sushi), providing insurance (Maker), and of course…


Details on the airdrop of YBX, YieldBlox’s platform token!

Introduction

In May of 2020, Tyler van der Hoeven wrote a proposal for an experimental Stellar ecosystem smart contract engine called TSS (Turing Signing Servers). At Script3, we had been looking into building DeFi (Decentralized Finance) protocols on Stellar for a while, so we immediately got involved with the project. …


This blog post covers some of our protocol design choices that maximize YieldBlox’s capital efficiency. Capital efficiency is crucial to any DeFi protocol as it’s directly related to the value the protocol creates. …


We want to touch on why we chose to build our DeFi protocols on Stellar. As a base network, Stellar excels in network efficiency, capital efficiency, asset flexibility, and decentralized consensus (this last point seems obvious, but we’ll expand on it more later). On top of all that, Stellar’s layer…

DeFi on Stellar

Building DeFi(Decentralized Finance) protocols on Stellar recently became possible with the introduction of the Stellar Development Foundation’s TSS(Turing Signing Server) Protocol. We won’t delve too deeply into the TSS solution in this article. Suffice to say, it enables on-ledger Turing complete smart contracts by using Stellar’s multisig capability to allow…
