Recently, the emerging sector LSDFi has been favored by smart investors in the industry. Data shows that the total locked value of the LSDFi sector has exceeded $385 million. The following is a list of LSDFi protocols.
1. Lybra Finance – An interest-bearing stablecoin protocol supported by LSD
Lybra Protocol is an interest-bearing stablecoin protocol supported by LSD. One notable feature of Lybra Protocol is that users can earn periodic stable income by holding minted (borrowed) eUSD. This is supported by LSD (liquidity staking derivatives) income generated by deposited ETH and stETH.
In simple terms, when users deposit ETH or stETH and mint EUSD from them, they receive approximately 5%-7% stable income in stETH. These incomes are converted to EUSD through the protocol and distributed to them.
