Proposal: Add $IDLE as collateral asset on CREAM

Hi everyone!

I’m Emiliano, member of Idle DAO and Project Manager for its Treasury League, and I would like to propose to the CREAM community to list IDLE as collateral asset.

What is IDLE?

Idle is a decentralized yield aggregator and rebalancing protocol, allowing users to use two different strategies to earn the yield they are looking for:

  • The Best-Yield allocation strategy allows to maximize the interest rate returns by detecting the interest rate changes on other lending protocols;
  • The Risk-Adjusted allocation strategy provides a way to earn the best rate at the lowest risk level.

Idle has integrated many lending providers (such as Compound, AAVE) and currently supports the following underlying tokens: DAI, USDC, USDT, SUSD, TUSD, WBTC, WETH, and *RAI (you can lend RAI on the beta dashboard).

Market Statistics & Info

Why IDLE

  • Since November 2020 the TVL increased from $2M to $255M;
  • Idle enabled LP Staking and, after the community approved the proposal, is going to release in the next weeks single $IDLE staking with lockup and fee-sharing;
  • Idle is currently deploying into CREAM part of the $3M deposited in the idleRAI strategy;
  • The proposal to have CREAM listed on USDT passed the snapshot and will move to integration phase, with millions of $ that could come into CREAM, potentially increasing its TVL;
  • Idle is collaborating with various integration partners for yield optimization (e.g. Yearn, Enzyme, PoolTogether, Harvest) and asset integration (e.g. RAI);
  • We are discussing and planning the next steps regarding Treasury diversification; thus, having IDLE as collateral on CREAM would allow the governance to consider stablecoin loans.

Security

Idle takes security seriously:

Benefits to CREAM

  • By adding IDLE as a collateral asset, C.R.E.A.M will increase TVL and generate more usage;
  • The Idle League Treasury Team is committed to publicly marketing and promoting the additional utility of IDLE as collateral in CREAM with ~10k Twitter followers;
