What is Single-Sided Liquidity?

  • Single-sided liquidity is a revolutionary AMM that allows you to deposit a single asset to earn auto-compounded yield. The yield is derived from the arbitrage profit from the spread between the quoted oracle and pool price and the swap fee.

What is the difference between stable, primary, and hyper pools?

Will there be more SSL Pools?

  • SSL was built to support any SPL token and has the capacity for additional pools
  • Additional pools will be added for popular tokens with sufficient liquidity.
  • You can join our discord to request additional pools.

Why does APY change for SSL Pools?

  • APY is derived from swaps and thus will fluctuate based on the volume traded and market volatility.

Why does the APR fluctuate for the SSL pools?

  • The APR displayed is currently calculated based on a 7-day average and thus over time as volume and liquidity increase these rates will normalize.

How is APR measured for SSL Pools?

  • APY is calculated based on the fees generated by the liquidity pools and the liquidity provided by the liquidity providers (LPs). The APY provides an indication of the potential returns that LPs might earn over a year.

How do SSL pools reduce Impermanent Loss?

  • In a typical two-asset pool where the assets are kept in a constant ratio impermanent loss occurs when one of the assets' value changes and thus when a user looks to withdraw their liquidity they have less than they originally deposited. This problem is solved due to users only needing to deposit a single asset and thus only having price exposure to the one asset. Therefore, as long as the APR for the pool is positive during the time you provided liquidity you will be able to withdraw your deposited amount plus the additional generated yield.

Do I need to specify the price range I will be providing liquidity for SSL pools?

  • No! SSL pools allow for truly passive income generation due to not needing to adjust the price range that you would like to provide liquidity. This is due to the SSL pools dynamically concentrating liquidity around the oracle price. Users performing swaps keep the pool price close to the oracle price by receiving the price that pushes the price closer to its true price.
