The Snowflake Exchange is a multichain stableswap that provides single-sided liquidity. Continue reading to learn about one of Polygon’s finest stablecoin yields.

Introduction

The Snowflake Exchange protocol is a next-generation single-side AMM (decentralized exchange) designed for exchanging stable cryptocurrencies on the Polygon blockchain (USDT, USDC, DAI, MAI). The protocol is built as a collection of smart contracts that favor censorship resistance, security, self-custody, and capital efficiency.

How Snowflake works

Unlike most competitors, Snowflake has chosen Asset Liability Management as their primary concept. This helps Snowflake become a hyper-efficient multichain stableswap, low slippage and high scalability. Snowflake is distinct in that liability is tracked. Liquidity providers will be provided LP tokens upon deposit to designate the exact amount and token that they have put. As a result, if the system is liquid, they will receive the same token amount upon withdrawal + token emission.

This design also provides Snowflake with additional benefits such as a method to track its financial health, the ability to lend out idle assets, the ability to enable new stablecoin solutions, and the elimination of impermanent loss.

The innovation of boost mechanism

In addition to the innovative Asset Liability Management concept, Snowflake distinguishes itself in the industry with its boost mechanism.

Snowflake provides its native token SNOW for liquidity mining through three different pools: Base Pool, Boosting Pool, and the forthcoming MATIC-SNOW Pool.

With Base Pool, you will receive SNOW Token in an amount that is proportional to your deposit’s part of the total deposit. Meanwhile, you will enjoy additional benefits from Boost Pool.

The Boosting Pool is intended to maximize the use of the extra token, voting escrow SNOW or veSNOW. This pool was developed to serve several goals, including incentivizing the purchase of SNOW tokens, encouraging long-term staking, and making farmed TVL directly tied to staked tokens.

veSNOW attributes:

  • Every hour, 1 staked SNOW generates 0.014 veSNOW.
  • The maximum veSNOW held with a deposit is equivalent to 100 times the deposit’s SNOW staked.
  • veSNOW is reduced to 0 when SNOW is unstaked.
  • Due to the nature of the smart contract, veSNOW is non-transferable and non-tradeable, i.e. the veSNOW token will be locked in the user’s private wallet.

Tokenomics

Snowflake Exchange’s native token is SNOW. To generate veSNOW, SNOW can be staked. Due to the architecture of the smart contract, veSNOW is neither transferable nor tradable, and is therefore locked in the user’s private wallet.

Every hour, 1 staked SNOW generates 0.014 veSNOW. The most veSNOW a deposit can hold is 100 times the SNOW staked. In other words, reaching the veSNOW cap takes around ten months. You can always bet additional SNOW to increase your veSNOW earnings. You have the option to withdraw your staked SNOW at any time. However, if you unstake any amount, your accumulated veSNOW will be reset to 0. veSNOW can currently increase liquidity mining APR.
