The IIP aims to update the USDC and WETH Senior Best Yield’s underlying markets by adding Clearpool’s Fasanara (USDC) Yield Tranches and removing the Euler (WETH) Yield Tranches. It also includes the pause of the staking reward program for stkIDLE holders as part of the recent discussion about IDLE staking.
This action will complete the process of removal of the Euler Yield Tranches as the underlying markets for the DAI, USDC, USDT and WETH vaults.
Together with the on-chain changes, we will also remove the strategies from the
Idle’s dApp. Depositors have successfully completed their redeems. The agEUR still deposited were burnt by Angle Money.
From a security perspective, it’s worth mentioning that up-today the WETH Best Yield vault couldn’t anyway deposit funds in the Euler underlying market, being all the Euler’s strategies deactivated.
This proposal aims to add new Clearpool Yield Tranches to the Senior Best Yield vaults on USDC:
The Fasanara Yield Tranches will join Aave, Compound and
Portofino YTs as underlying markets for the USDC pool.

Clearpool (Fasanara) pool is live since the beginning of June. The Fasanara pool has a size of ~$550k and a maximum borrowing capacity of up to $40m. Credora rates the borrower with an AA.
At the time of writing, the Fasanara pool provides 21.73% APR with an 85% utilization rate (
source). Risk rating
The borrower has been already analysed internally following the
risk rating framework. The Clearpool (Fasanara) Yield Tranches can be considered as a valid market to become a new yield source of the Best Yield strategies.
In order to trigger any BY deployment, the Yield Tranches will need to have at least a 24% coverage on Senior funds coming from the Junior counterparty.
Multiple proposals are being discussed on how to revamp the IDLE staking use cases. One of them has already been voted and can continue the on-chain voting process:
Pause the staking reward program for stkIDLE holders
Currently, stakers are rewarded with a mechanism that distributes half of the fees generated (in IDLE) by the Senior Best Yield strategy. This mechanism has given a value-capturing feature to IDLE tokens, but on the other hand, it has fallen short of sustaining the token price through the buyback mechanism setup.
We should also note that the fee-sharing contract is immutable and based on Sushiswap v2, which has no liquidity, hence buying IDLE there, is sub-optimal due to high slippage costs.
Additionally, due to regulatory uncertainty, the current staking rewards do not align with the not-for-profit structure of the soon-to-be Idle DAO LLC, thereby increasing the complexity.
For the above reasons, Leagues suggest pausing the current staking rewards and instead, introducing new use cases for IDLE stakers.
The code for the IIP-36 can be found on GitHub
here and consists of nine actions.
1 action to remove Euler Yield Tranches from the Senior WETH Best Yield strategy
1 action to add Clearpool (Fasanara) Yield Tranches to the Senior USDC Best Yield strategy
4 actions to change the fees recipient addresses of the Senior BY strategies to the
3 actions to transfer the DAI, USDC and USDT fees from the
feeCollector to the
Where the Clearpool wrapper contract address is:
Clearpool Fasanara USDC YTs
The temperature checks for the above proposals have already been successfully closed. We are going to open the on-chain voting phase right after the publication of this Idle improvement proposal.
