Mint native MAI on Moonbeam with Stellaswap
Mint $MAI stablecoins on Stellaswap against $xSTELLA and $WGLMR
MAI is a collateral-backed stablecoin, which offers at mai.finance 0% interest lending on several chains. Its 50+ collaterals range from interest-bearing tokens to regular tokens like CRV and BTC. MAI is one of the most crosschain assets in DeFi and can easily be swapped for other stablecoins and tokens.
Launch on Moonbeam:
Users can now mint stablecoins against $xSTELLA and $WGLMR on Moonbeam. The process is very familiar for the Qimp community: create a vault, deposit your assets, and start borrowing stablecoins against your collateral’s value. Read the complete guide here.
What are the benefits of borrowing against xSTELLA and WGLMR?
xSTELLA: is the Auto-Compounding, Stellaswap’s Yield-Bearing Token for Single Asset Staking.
For every swap on the StellaSwap exchange, 0.05% is used to buyback STELLA and given to xSTELLA holders. xSTELLA will continuosly auto-compound and can be used for voting & can be used at other DeFi protocols. Users can claim their original STELLA plus accrued rewards when they unstake.
This means that while users borrow against xSTELLA, their collateral will continue growing accruing yield.
WGLMR: Glimmer (GLMR) is the utility token of the Moonbeam Network, Moonbeam’s primary deployment on the Polkadot network that serves as a developer-friendly parachain. WGLMR is the wrapped version of GLMR.
How much MAI can I borrow?
The xSTELLA and WGLMR vaults on Stellaswap have a 40% Loan To Value (LTV). That’s equivalent to a 250% minimum Collateral to Debt Ratio (CDR).
This determines the maximum amount you can borrow. If the LTV is 40%, you can borrow $40 worth of MAI for a total collateral value of $100.
