Custodian Attestations of Assets Backing USDe: May

In an effort to improve the transparency of the Ethena protocol’s backing assets beyond our current collateral and exchange breakdown provided on the dashboards, we are excited to share our second attestation reports from all integrated custodians, verifying the assets backing USDe reside off-exchange within institutional custodial solutions.

Attestation reports will be released on a monthly basis to provide regular updates as to the amount and location of the assets backing the protocol. The monthly attestation reports will be shared in the Ethena governance forum.

The aim of these reports is to prove an independent third party assessment that all assets backing USDe sit off-exchange within institutional grade custodial solutions. It is expected that these attestations become more robust going forward, utilizing additional external parties to verify the data presented and presenting additional detail.

As of 10:00 UTC May 24th today, USDe supply was $2.673bn as per the Etherscan link below:

$1.318bn has been verified to be held within solutions offered by Copper as of 10:00 UTC on May 24, 2024.

$1.338bn has been verified to be held within solutions offered by Ceffu as of 10:00 UTC on May 24, 2024.

$5.52m has been verified to be held within solutions offered by Cobo as of 10:00 UTC on May 24, 2024.
