- Arkadiko’s self-repaying loan product is the first of its kind in the DeFi ecosystem
- The new feature from Arkadiko is poised to unlock Bitcoin DeFi potential
Bitcoin DeFi continues to gain momentum as Arkadiko, through the Stacks Ecosystem amassed a whopping $30m TVL within 24 hours of its launch and now sits at $50M. The launch was one of the Stacks Ecosystem’s most anticipated projects as Arkadiko plans to take advantage of the special relationship between Stacks and Bitcoin to launch robust Bitcoin DeFi building blocks as well as the self-repaying loan product which the community has anticipated for many months.
While the Arkadiko team has recently shared its desire to move on with WEB3 by going ahead to build DeFi on Bitcoin, their project has brought about an exciting product that could only be imagined a few years ago. To make self-repaying loans a reality in the Bitcoin DeFi ecosystem, while making feature products possible, the team has built robust infrastructure that will play a significant role in the continued growth of the Bitcoin DeFi ecosystem through Stacks. This will also include the launch of stablecoin, yield farming opportunities, and of course, a DAO.
Arkadiko And Its Self Replaying Loan Products
The launch of this superb product by Arkadiko was phenomenal as the community quickly started interacting with the protocol. Thanks to the successful launch, Arkadiko users can now collateralize STX tokens to mint USDA. Not just that, the community can also provide liquidity, swap stacks for native digital assets while also staking Arkadiko’s governance token, DIKO.
By launching its own decentralized stablecoin (USDA), the Arkadiko project is poised to increase the utility and efficiency of the Stacks ecosystem. And that’s because the project allows users to collateralize their tokens and move them without worrying about volatility. This will no doubt provide more flexibility to the market.
Arkadiko is taking advantage of the Stacks Proof-of-Transfer consensus mechanism to bring self-repaying loans to the community. With this, any collateralized STX can benefit from Stacking yield, which unarguably offers a yield higher than the loan interest rate and can be effectively deployed towards self-repaying loans.
