We propose to add RAI—our stable-ish coin—to Cream for lending & borrowing.
RAI is an asset backed only by ETH, governance-minimized, and programmed to maintain its own price stability without needing to peg to an external price reference like the USD. We believe these qualities make RAI ideal initially as an alternative to pegged-coins for use in DeFi as collateral and as a stable reserve asset, especially for programs where resilience is critical.
Add RAI to Cream for lending & borrowing.
Cream is the leading lending platform for the long-tail of DeFi assets, often being first to list innovativenew assets. In the case of RAI, maintaining system stability is greatly assisted by having a leverage facility to balance ETH/RAI longs. By depositing RAI as collateral in Cream, borrowing ETH, and selling for more RAI, traders would be able to go long on RAI/ETH and help correct short-term RAI price dips. As such, Cream could be instrumental to helping RAI establish itself as a new independent stable reserve asset for DeFi, and the Cream community could earn fees from our activity along the way .
