Part 3. Project Analysis


  • Curve and Abracadabra have developed a system called magicCRV (mCRV). This cauldron is based on a lending market where users provide CRV as collateral for 0% interest fee. In doing so they lock their CRV and delegate their voting power to Abracadabra.
  • New magicCRV cauldrons will focus on attracting CRV through preferential cauldron rates, which will act as a token sink for any CRV used in them.
  • Every time a user deposits CRV in our market, the token is locked for 4 years, and wrapped into mCRV. When a position needs to be closed users get back mCRV.
  • A mCRV <> CRV pool on Curve will allow the user to swap mCRV for their CRV tokens if they wish.
  • At the same time, we are now able to use the voting power of those locked CRV to improve MIM peg on the main MIM-3Pool as well as the mCRV <> CRV pool, resulting in more volume and hence fees for CRV token holders.
