Deepsea Insights

With every Rotation, there’s always something interesting going on in the Orca ecosystem…

Last Rotation we welcomed the DUST/USDC and DUST/SOL Whirlpools that are running swimmingly for LPs with no rewards except trading fees!

And stablecoin yields from USH/USDC (from Hedge) and USDH/USDC (from Hubble) continue to an interesting pair of pools to explore— but be sure to understand the risks in these stormy market conditions!
