Hedge Integration with Chainlink Price Feeds

Published on:

Hedge, an interest-free, low minimal collateral ratio lending protocol on Solana, announced its integration with Chainlink Price Feeds on the Solana mainnet.

Integration HighLights

As previously stated, Hedge integration with Chainlink Price Feeds will access tamper-proof, high-speed market data. Since, it helps determine the values of collateral assets in Hedge vaults, which are used to determine collateral-to-debt ratios and trigger liquidations, ultimately helping ensure protocol solvency.

Chainlink Price Feeds help secure collateralization and liquidation ratios for Hedge borrowers, helping ensure protocol solvency even when market conditions are volatile.

To start, Hedge has integrated the SOL/USD Price Feed for the Hedge SOL vault, with more feeds to come in the future.

Helping Secure Hedge Vaults with Chainlink

Furthermore, Hedge allows users to take out interest-free loans for a one-time fee by depositing collateral to mint USH, a stablecoin soft-pegged to the US dollar. Therefore, users are incentivize to keep their collateral-to-debt ratio above 110% to avoid liquidation. When an undercollateralized vault is liquidated, users who have deposited USH in the stability pool are returned discounted collateral as a reward, with the rest of the collateral distributed to the liquidator and HDG token holders. In conclusion, USH keeps its floor price at $1 by being redeemable for its underlying collateral at all times, though a redemption fee ensures this happens infrequently and only when needed.

Moreover, accurate collateralization and liquidation metrics depend upon robust price data. If Hedge’s smart contracts calculate collateral values with inaccurate or manipulated price data, this can result in undercollateralized loans and cause unwanted liquidations and protocol insolvency.

Sebastian Grubb, Founder of Hedge
