Weekly Update – DEX Stabilization Fee, Engineering Sync, New Hardfork Schedule And More!

Mar 15, 2024

Hi DeFiChain community,

Welcome to this week's edition of the DeFiChain Weekly Update, where we bring you the latest and most exciting developments from the DeFiChain ecosystem. Let’s dive into the highlights of the week.

Update: Dynamic DEX Stabilization Fees

A Dynamic DEX Stabilization Fee structure has been implemented on the Defichain DEX as of February 28th, in line with the recently passed DFIP proposal. The current fee is 80% (30% “old” stabilization fee & 50% “new”, dynamic stabilization fee). These variable fees on DUSD transactions appear to be working as intended, driving the DUSD price above $0.75 USD and steering it towards its targeted $1 peg.

For more details on the rationale and framework behind these developments, refer to the original DFIP proposal here.

New Hardfork Schedule

DeFiChain will implement hardforks every three months at the latest, starting from the end of March/early April 2024. This new cadence replaces the previous ad hoc approach to software updates and protocol changes.

Project Spotlight: CRYPTO FACTOR

Project Spotlights aim to shine a light on projects built on DeFiChain and deep dive into what they're building with the teams behind the projects.

Last week, we spoke with @CryptoFactor_io, an aggregator of Web3 on-chain infrastructure services. They blend services into deployment templates that can run on EVM-compatible chains like DeFiChain's MetaChain (DMC).
