Liquid Loans Analytics

Liquid Loans launched on December 1st, 2023.

Right out of the gates, billions of PLS was locked up and millions of USDL was minted.

This running blog post will summarize and analyze the stats from the protocol.

  • A whopping 7.21% of the non-OA supply of PLS is locked in the Liquid Loans protocol
  • The current supply of USDL is 32.25 Million and rising
  • The total collateral ratio of the protocol is at an extremely healthy 520% PLS to USDL value.
Stability Pool & Liquidations
  • 95.5% of USDL in existence is staked in the Stability Pool and is earning 97% APR.
  • Total liquidated vaults has slowed down significantly and remains at 80.
