DeFi just got a serious upgrade.

The initial launch parameters for alETH, as decided on by community governance, are as follows.

-A 400% collateralisation ratio, meaning, for every 4 ETH you deposit, you can borrow 1 alETH
-A debt ceiling of 2000 alETH
-5.5% of ALCX rewards going to the alETH AMM LP farm

The ALCX dev team and community chose to be conservative with our launch to ensure all systems are functioning properly. Post-launch, we will reassess the collateralization ratio and debt ceiling together with our amazing community.

The contracts are live. You can verify them yourself on etherscan:

The alETH contracts are based on the original Alchemist and Transmuter contracts (audited by Certik: https://alchemix.fi/a208baf6ca7e0d6b0116461f05e27cd9.pdf), with the ability to transact in ETH and WETH. Additionally, we have added functionality to allow users to swap ETH directly to alETH, 1:1, via the Alchemist. Swapped ETH goes directly into the transmuter; ready to back the newly minted alETH, maintain the peg, and increase yield for borrowers and stakers in the Alchemist.

Markets are not yet live, as we are waiting for the creation of the curve-like pool from our saddle.exchange partner. The pool is set to go live on Monday or early Tuesday (decentralized coordination ftw!). Staking rewards for LP providers will activate a day or two after the pool has been initialised and the multisig has activated the pool.

Remember, there are no liquidations with Alchemix loans. Making it one of the safest places to park your ETH as collateral.
