Orca introduced the Orca Climate Fund
In August 2021, the Orca Impact Fund was born. Since that time, a portion of fees on every trade on Orca has been allocated to the Impact Fund, which aims to mitigate the effects of climate change and promote sustainable practices.
Going forward, the Orca Impact Fund will be relaunched as the Orca Climate Fund (OCF). For the fund to retain these core values as Orca continues to move toward full decentralization, it must support Orca’s core business. The name “Climate Fund” is a better reflection of the work that has been completed and the work that lies ahead.
Going forward, the Climate Fund will expand beyond philanthropy and focus also on the intersection between climate change and web3. Instead of solely making charitable contributions, the Climate Fund will also explore ways for DAOs to make an impact on the climate more directly.
UXD Protocol introduced The Asset Liability Management Module
Asset Liability Management Module is a generalized strategy that they believe will be the endgame of stablecoins. This will potentially enable UXD to scale to billions efficiently and at the same time, generate positive cash flow via various sustainable sources of yield on the asset side, which will transform UXP from a pure governance token into a productive asset.
The Asset Liability Management Module can be applied cross-chain, thus making UXD a modular structure that is agnostic between chains and can maintain various asset positions across a variety of chains.
The asset liability management module is a structure that combines various low-risk strategies to back the stablecoin. These strategies generate yield, which will accrue to UXP stakers and the insurance fund.
