Users of Polygon’s scaling network will have access to a new Uniswap V3 liquidity mining protocol powered by an izumi Finance solution dubbed LiquidBox. Polygon blockchain users will have the option to leverage the solution for one-sided liquidity mining rewards and low-gas transactions.
One-Sided Non-Impermanent Loss Liquidity Mining
According to a Medium blog post published on Friday, January 14, 2022, izumi Finance plans to deploy its LiquidBox protocol on the Polygon blockchain. LiquidBox will offer one-sided non-impermanent loss mining for Uniswap v3 liquidity providers using the Polygon scaling network. The new feature goes live on Monday, January 17, 2022, at 10 PM UTC-5.
Currently, Uniswap only supports two-sided liquidity mining. Investors looking to gain rewards from pools must deposit both assets from their preferred pairs before receiving any yield. This leaves liquidity providers (LPs) with the risk of experiencing heavy impermanent loss as asset prices could face dips in market value.
However, providing a concentrated liquidity mining model for stable assets with a fixed price and one-sided non-impermanent loss mining for non-stable tokens could present a working solution for LPs, according to izumi.
The protocol also plans to support more blockchain projects with better liquidity incentives and offer LPs the facilities to earn extra rewards. An excerpt from the blog post reads:
“Polygon is only the first step. Izumi’s team is also planning to deploy on more layer-2 and pubic blockchains to enable multi-chain Programable Liquidity as a Service for any blockchain project.”
Furthermore, izumi will launch its USDT/USDC pool on Polygon via a joint liquidity mining program with Yin Finance. According to the announcement, farming rewards will follow a $iZi+$YIN+ transaction fee structure. Also, 720,000 $iZi and 90,000 $Yin will be provided for the first pool cycle.
In addition, the blog post suggests that izumi plans to launch other pools with possible support for wrapped ether (WETH) pairs.
Expanding Polygon Ecosystem
The announcement from izumi comes as the latest development involving both Polygon and Uniswap.
As previously reported by BTCManager back in December 2021, the Polygon team announced the successful integration of Uniswap V3 into the Polygon ecosystem.
As gas fees are infamously high on Ethereum-based transactions, Polygon offers a faster and more cost-effective means for decentralized finance (DeFi) users to trade.
