We are excited to announce Ohmieswap!
What is Ohmieswap?
Ohmieswap is a Sushiswap fork. We incentivize liquidity with the OSX token, and take fees on liquidity for xOSX stakers. However, there are a few key differences versus the model you know today.
Built for Olympus.
Ohmieswap places OHM at the center of the exchange. Given the massive amount of TVL that OlympusDAO represents on Sushiswap ($500m+ and counting), this seems fitting. Instead of pairing everything against ETH, everything will be paired against OHM.
We intend for OlympusDAO to own and maintain many of the crucial router pools on the exchange, including OHM-DAI and OHM-ETH. Having OlympusDAO as the primary LP for these pools provides us with a massive advantage; OlympusDAO will receive the majority of incentives on the platform, and protect our market from farm-and-dumpers as a result.
We hope that OlympusDAO will go as far as to provide OHM-OSX liquidity with the tokens that it earns. For those unfamiliar, the most pressure on SUSHI or comparable exchange tokens comes from router pools and the exchange token. With OlympusDAO as a liquidity provider on those router pools and the exchange token, our incentive burden falls and the tokenomics work a lot better. Olympus will earn lots of tokens, OSX will hold its value. (win, win).
We go further, leveraging the Olympus contracts themselves to create what we believe will be a behemoth in decentralized exchanges. If you are not aware, OlympusDAO has had difficulty incentivizing liquidity providers in the past. It makes a lot of sense: staking rewards are very high, so users are not willing to LP unless pool 2 rewards are very high. Ohmieswap fixes this.
We will engage the debt functions in the treasury to allow users to leverage sOHM for pooled OHM. This will be explained in more detail in a different post but in practice, you as a staker would be able to take 1 sOHM, borrow 1 OHM against it, and pool that 1 OHM with another token on Ohmieswap. You keep your rebases and new OHM liquidity is created. (win, win).
This mechanism is our superpower. Ohmieswap will take a 10% fee on the rebases of deposited sOHM collateral. We will use those fees to build protocol-owned liquidity on the exchange, first with OSX and later with many tokens. Through this revenue model and together with OlympusDAO, we will own and operate a decentralized exchange with large swaths of protocol-owned liquidity.
Built for Collaboration.
We want Ohmieswap to be a new vehicle for Olympus to build relationships with protocols in the industry. We will work in tandem to create and support partnerships with exciting protocols, new and old. Here are a few ways we see this happening:
- Incentives: We will provide incentives on OHM pairs for Olympus Pro partners. This adds an extra incentive to be in this program (though it probably does not need it).
- Incubation: We will provide extra attention to projects going through the recently proposed Incubator, so they can go from 0 to 1 even faster.
- Payments: When Ohmieswap is live, users can use sOHM to create OHM liquidity positions. We want to promote this to Olympus Pro partners and get them to use it. If they do, those partners will accumulate sOHM through Olympus Pro instead of a liquidity pool token. They then take that sOHM to us to create the OLP token. We think that having sOHM as the payment token on Olympus Pro is a good dynamic that we are happy to help usher in.
Built to be Boundless.
We intend for Ohmieswap to be a cross-chain DEX. We would like to take Olympus with us, promoting OHM and OHM liquidity throughout the cryptoverse. Though we do not want to derail existing plans, we are eager to help.
What do we need?
Your support, mostly. We want to run a trial of our leverage facility to ensure it works and is safe. You can watch out for a proposal about this. We also want Olympus to take its liquidity to us after the migration. There will be another proposal about this.
We are very excited to start this journey. We think we can speak for everyone when we say that Olympus having its own DEX is a no-brainer. We believe that, paired with our own innovations, we can create a truly powerful new tool for Olympus and DeFi.
We are the DEX of DeFi 2.0. We are Ohmieswap.
