Weekly Update – Special DFIP, Oracles & Pool Reward Adjustments, And More!

Feb 16, 2024

Hi DeFiChain community,

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

Community Fund Diversification Special DFIP Progress

The DeFiChain community recently approved a proposal to stabilize the value of DUSD by diversifying the holdings of the Community Fund. As a first step, DeFiChain Labs together with community members, has deployed a DUSD Buying Bot to systematically purchase DUSD over time.

This bot represents a key part of the strategy to underpin DUSD's $1 peg to USD, strengthening DeFiChain's entire ecosystem of decentralized financial services.

For detailed insights into this strategic initiative and its ongoing impact, we invite you to delve into the full post here.

Upcoming Adjustments to Oracles and Pool Rewards

With Walmart's ($WMT) upcoming 3-for-1 stock split, the DeFiChain decentralized stock token $dWMT will need to account for this corporate action. There will be a 6-hour trading halt on $dWMT (3 hours before and after the WMT stock split) to ensure a smooth transition. $dWMT vault owners should be aware there will be an additional 1-hour pause.

To align with the new post-split WMT shares outstanding, the $dWMT token supply will also undergo a 3-for-1 split. New pool rewards have been detailed in the DFIP spreadsheet to provide clarity on the adjusted structure.

The $dWMT token split and aligned reward updates will take effect on February 16, 2024 at 6 PM GMT+8, concurrent with the $WMT stock split completion. You can follow the exact date and time via the block height countdown here.

DeFiChain 4.0.9 Release Highlights

DeFiChain's latest release ushers in three notable enhancements for the platform:

  • Robust Ethereum Syncing Upgraded subscription notification logic bolsters the reliability of syncing Ethereum activity. Missing critical on-chain events is no longer a concern.
  • Better Gas Estimations A fixed estimate gas RPC improves the accuracy of gas cost calculations for executing transactions. Users can trust consistent gas estimations.
  • Flexible Transactions The transaction framework now supports null values in topic lists. This enables more customizable events by allowing developers to omit unused topics.
