SIP-337: Perps V3

  • As mentioned in earlier weblog posts, this SIP proposes deploying Perps V2 to Synthetix V3 with numerous characteristic upgrades and enhancements
  • Upgrades embrace native cross-margining of positions, multi-collateral margin assist, revamped liquidations, and improved deterministic settlement. Let’s overview what a few of these upgrades will entail:

1. Multi-collateral assist

  • In Perps V3, all synths that the spot market creates will finally be enabled as collateral
  • That is accomplished in order that it’s straightforward for the perps market to have liquidity to promote synths when required, and permits it to simply get quotes to find out margin worth

2. Liquidations

  • Massive positions can be step by step liquidated, one non-sandwichable portion at a time, with a configurable delay between partial liquidations
  • This eliminates the MEV sandwich assault vector, maintaining that worth with the protocol

3. Improved deterministic settlements

  • Delayed orders in Perps V2 have confirmed extraordinarily efficient in minimizing poisonous stream, nevertheless the small print of the implementation may be improved to supply a extra resilient settlement stream
  • In Perps V3, the settlement course of ensures that the execution value is the value at dedication time and is executed within the accessible window

4. Market construction

  • Numerous particular person Perps markets can be grouped collectively into a bigger “supermarket”
  • That is to make sure all the chance from every market or collateral kind is appropriately distributed for LPs backing the grocery store
  • The grocery store can have variables that may be particularly configured for that market
  • This will permit markets to be break up up sooner or later primarily based on threat profile and liquidity

5. Staleness tolerance

  • As we already know, every perps market requires value info
  • From the buying and selling competitors, it turned clear that the price of pushing that information on-chain was very excessive
  • Optionality was added in order that value staleness may very well be made strict for liquidations, for instance, and fewer strict for different transactions
  • This may scale back transaction prices general by decreasing the quantity of knowledge being pushed on-chain

SIP-348: Allow USDC for Andromeda on Base

  • This SIP proposes utilizing the V3 spot and wrapper performance to permit customers to deposit USDC for a wrapped model for use as LP collateral or margin for buying and selling
  • The proposal particulars the entire V3 configurables for the Perps V3 deployment to Base, together with the enabling of USDC as LP collateral
  • The deployment to Base can be a brand new market with, probably, a brand new set of customers, so it made sense to launch with USDC assist (probably the most broadly used stablecoins in DeFi). Deciding on a single collateral kind additionally reduces the complexity of the deployment
  • The max market measurement can be roughly $1 million every for BTC and ETH (a conservative cap to begin with, much like the launch of Perps V2)
  • ML_sudo requested what the method can be for including new markets — Afif stated the technique would probably be much like the V2 rollout (begin with most liquid buying and selling pairs and low OI caps earlier than step by step including new markets and rising caps). He additionally careworn the significance of constant to construct on the constructive repute that the protocol has developed over the previous yr because the introduction of Perps
  • There was some normal confusion on the council that the SIP gave the impression to be lacking key particulars concerning the deployment that had been mentioned beforehand (particularly the charge sharing)
  • Cav clarified that there are a selection of SIPs that can be a part of the Andromeda deployment (SIP-345: SNX buyback and burn and SIP-346: Integrator Price share included)
  • Kain prompt itemizing these as dependencies on this SIP, so Cav is updating it to mirror all dependencies

Matt additionally simply introduced an explainer weblog submit for the Andromeda launch yesterday, which may be discovered right here. The submit discusses some background on Perps V2, what upgrades Perps V3 will convey, the essence of testing in Andromeda, isolation of the Andromeda launch on Base, how success can be measured, what to anticipate for the preliminary rollout, the Andromeda expertise from an LP vs. dealer perspective, and the way forward for Synthetix with Andromeda. Make sure you give the submit a learn!

Ambassador Council

Current on the November 21, 2023 Ambassador Council assembly:
Ambassadors: GUNBOATs, Kevin, Mastermojo, Matt, Westie

Lastly, for a fast Ambassador Council replace, the workforce mentioned potential future integrations and builders, in addition to methods to interact and assist present integrators. They then mentioned a framework to ensure all initiatives within the ecosystem learn about Optimism Grants/Retroactive funding.

The Ambassadors are additionally within the means of brainstorming an article on how new protocols can leverage V3, in addition to planning out future Spartan Areas. Lastly, the Council created a Synthetix Ecosystem Public Items list for Optimism’s RPGF Spherical 3 the place different badgeholders can vote. The initiatives on their checklist have put constructing first and have considerably contributed to the expansion of the ecosystem by onboarding builders, initiatives, LPs, and merchants.
