Clearpool YTs as a new yield source for USDC BY - Wincent


A proposal to add the Wincent Clearpool USDC Yield Tranche as a new yield source for the USDC Best Yield vaults.



After the successful integration of multiple Clearpool YTs in the USDC and USDT markets, this new proposal aims to add the latest Clearpool Yield Tranche to the Best Yield USDC vaults:

  • Clearpool USDC (Wincent) YTs, with specs available on GitHub here

Similar to previous Clearpool’s integration, Wincent’s one would benefit doubly the Idle users

Yield Tranches are live since December 2021 holding a cumulative TVL of up to $50m.

Clearpool (Wincent) pool is live since the beginning of September. The Wincent pool has a maximum borrowing capacity of up to $27m. Credora rates the borrower with a BB.

Protocol Borrower Capacity Pool size Credora’s rating
Clearpool Wincent $27,000,000 $ - BB

At the time of writing, the Wincent pool has been deployed and will soon start the borrowing activities.

Risk rating

The borrower has been already analysed internally following the risk rating framework. The Clearpool (Wincent) Yield Tranches can be considered as a valid market to become a new yield source of the Best Yield vaults.

In order to trigger any BY deployment, the Yield Tranches will need to have at least a 30% coverage on Senior funds coming from the Junior counterparty.

Next steps

We are going to open the temperature check right after the publication of this post.

Temperature check results

Temperature Check passed :white_check_mark:

Leagues will continue the process of integration of the new underlying market into BY. The actions required will be included in the next IIP.

It has been brought to our attention that Wincent, due to some liquidity capacity constraints, asked Clearpool to set a cap on the pool. This cap would have limited the possibility of free deposit from our Best Yield and would have needed ad-hoc adjustments on the Best Yield optimization algorithm.

Due to these circumstances, we cannot finalize the integration of the pool into our product suite.

The Yield Tranches codebase will stay in place and will be ready as soon as Wincent decides to start borrowing on Clearpool without any cap limit. Depending on changes in rating and the borrower’s capacity from Credora, we will see if a new temperature check vote is needed or if we can accept the one done as still valid and proceed with the on-chain voting phase.
