Ring Protocol Mainnet Launch!
We’re thrilled to announce that Ring Protocol has been deployed to Ethereum Mainnet, and the Ring App is live at https://ring.exchange! All the relevant contact addresses can be found here, the notable token contract is listed below for convenience.
Ring protocol is a yield compounding stablecoin protocol on Uniswap V3, designed like ‘One Ring to rule them all.’ It launches an RUSD stablecoin that is fully pegged on a basket of existing stablecoins and simultaneously enables stable swap liquidity pools.
The protocol’s vision is to provide 10x better transaction cost, and liquidity depth compares to existing solutions and grows to be a critical player in the DeFi ecosystem.
RING is the Ring Protocol’s governance token. The token holders can participate in voting to influence the protocol’s product roadmap and future direction. RING token is designed to be appreciated over time as the protocol grows. We will share more the benefits of RING token holder in details shortly.
RUSD Mint and Swap are available now! The staking is open for depositing, and the genesis mining pool will be starting on Jun.4th 12:40 PM PST. Subscribe to our medium channel for more updates on the mining details!
Mint, Swap, and Deposit today to prepare for the immediate RING earning once it’s open!
Starting today, early adopters can start mint RUSD by depositing DAI / USDC / USDT assets via Ring App. See the user guide for a detailed how-to. Any deposit goes to Ring Protocol’s bonding curve for price discovery, and at the same time, the protocol will increase the liquidity pool depth of the corresponding stable pairs.
The mainnet launch simultaneously enabled RUSD-DAI, RUSD-USDC, RUSD-USDT liquidity pool on Uniswap V3. Traders can start trade RUSD now via Ring App “Swap”. The experience is comparable to trading with other stablecoin like DAI / USDC / USDT. What’s more — because Ring is the stable connected asset among them all, there might be a better price quote for large stable swap volume if leverage via RUSD connected liquidity.
Traders, there are arbitrage opportunities! When RUSD is above the peg against one other stablecoin, the arbitrager can mint RUSD and sell against the stablecoin for profit!
The first staking pool (staking RUSD to mine RING) will be launch on Jun.4th at 12:40 PM PST (Jun.4th at 7:40 PM GMT). However, users can start staking NOW via Ring App “Stake“ UI to enjoy immediate rewards once the pool starts.
The staking pool is for RUSD single asset (no impermanent loss). For the genesis allocation, 10% of the total RING supply is reserved for staking reward, which will be released in two years.
