Debt pool explanation
June 10, 2022
In this post, we will explain crucial element of our app - debt pool.
What is it, how does it work, and how to use it, to maximize your profit 👇
In simple words, debt pool is the total market value of all the minted synthetic assets expressed in USD. Debt pool allows the functioning of a platform and assures its stability.
Debt pool participants deposit collateral and mint xUSD (later they can swap xUSD to any other synthetic asset). They become a counterparty to traders and thanks to the funds provided by them make transactions on the platform possible. The share of specific tokens in the debt isn’t constant - it changes accordingly to the market price fluctuations and the amount of users’ staked tokens.
Look at the example which explains the benefits and the risks while participating in the debt pool below ⬇️
Debt Pool participators on Synthetify get rewards in SNY tokens.
For using stSOL or mSOL as collateral, they can receive an extra reward in MNDE or LIDO.
Of course, apart from the rewards, you can also make a profit if the value of your synthetic assets increases, or if you short them (by holding debt in xUSD) it goes down.

Remember, there is always a risk, especially in the crypto space. As you could see in the graphic above, when someone is on profit on the debt pool, someone else is losing. Always have that in the back of your mind when trading :)
