What is mStable

A single protocol for:

  • Stablecoins
  • Lending
  • Swapping

How mStable works

A user deposits a stablecoin and mints mUSD. With mUSD the user can:

  • Swap between stablecoins at zero price slippage for a small trade fee.
  • Stake mUSD and earn yield from lending and trade fees.
  • Insurance from a single stablecoin losing it’s peg.

The same could be done with other assets going forward.

Zero price slippage

By a straight line bonding curve between mUSD and basket assets. Only restriction is the max weights for a single asset in the basket.

Earn yield

From trade fees and lending. mStable lends the basket assets on Aave and Compound to generate yield.


If for example USDT loses its peg, mStable could remove that USDT and recover lost value by selling MTA for the outstanding mUSD.
