Anchor Protocol (ANC) added to Red Bank

After a successful governance vote ending on Earth Date April 9, 2022, Anchor Protocol tokens (ANC) are now available for depositing and borrowing on the Red Bank!

Humans and extraterrestrials everywhere can deposit ANC for potential yield and optionally use it as collateral to borrow TerraUSD (UST) or Terra (LUNA). Users can also deposit UST or LUNA and use it as collateral to borrow ANC.

The following risk borrowing and lending risk parameters apply for ANC:

  • Loan-to-Value: 40%
  • Liquidation Threshold: 50%
  • Liquidation Bonus: 15%
  • Interest Rate Model: A 2-slope (kinked) interest rate implementation with the following parameters:
  • Base Rate (interest rate at 0% utilization): 0%
  • Slope 1: 7%
  • Slope 2: 300%
  • Optimal utilization: 45%
