First Priceless Synthetic Token Built Using UMA is on Mainnet

Hart Lambur

TL;DR: A Synthetic Token to track ETHBTC—collateralized with DAI—has been built using UMA’s Priceless infrastructure. It is available on Uniswap v2.

At approximately 15:58 UTC today the first ETHBTC synthetic token was created on the Ethereum mainnet. This is the first token to be built using UMA’s priceless synthetic token infrastructure. The token code and contract code have been verified on Etherscan.

The token is currently available on Uniswap v2 🦄.

Warning: this is an experimental, alpha release. Although the code has been audited in detail by OpenZeppelin, this is a decentralized product that no one — including the core development team — can control. The mechanisms behind this design have not been proven in the wild. Users should proceed with extreme caution.

What does this ETHBTC synthetic token do?

Currently 1 ETHBTC token is worth approximately 0.02 DAI on Uniswap. The token is collateralized with DAI and will settle to the ETHBTC value as reported by the UMA DVM on the expiry date of 1 August 2020. For example, if the ETHBTC price ratio is 0.03 at expiry, each token will be redeemable for 0.03 DAI.

Who can create ETHBTC tokens?

Token sponsors are responsible for maintaining adequate collateralization in the ETHBTC contract to avoid liquidation. A token sponsor who mints and then sells an ETHBTC token is short ETHBTC (they have the opposite economic risk as a ETHBTC token holder). The contract requires an 120% collateralization ratio.

Where can you get ETHBTC tokens?

What is a “priceless” synthetic token?

This ETHBTC token is the first DeFi product to use a priceless design on mainnet. It is an experiment to learn if oracle usage can truly be minimized, and to what extent. For example, it is possible that zero oracle calls will be needed at all during the lifetime of this token. We will learn a lot in the coming weeks, and will discuss our results and analysis publicly.

Why is ETHBTC the first synthetic?

The token also offers access to a type of risk that wasn’t easily accessible before. Historically, people have traded ETHBTC by swapping ETH for BTC or vice versa. Never before have people been able to trade the value of the index itself. This token allows users to trade ETHBTC without needing to take on any underlying ETH or BTC exposure.

Can this ETHBTC token be shut down?

UMA tokens holders can initiate an EmergencyShutdown of token contracts through an on-chain vote if they believe that the token contracts pose a security or economic risk to the system. Once initiated, these votes require at least 48hrs to pass, allowing token contract participants to wind down their positions.
