Open Dollar April Highlights

Welcome to the Open Dollar April highlights!

Here we’ll recap the month’s most important developments and highlights from the Open Dollar protocol.


Open Dollar Mainnet

Open Dollar is live on mainnet, and with it, we’ve brought the first tradable loans to DeFi!

For what’s new, and what we’ve planned for our first users, see our blog announcement.

You can also view our X thread where we recap the features and supported collaterals on Open Dollar.

Camelot DEX Lists OD

We're excited to announce that the $OD stablecoin token has been listed on Camelot DEX!

Raise Debt Ceiling Proposal Passed

The DAO proposal for raising the debt ceiling has passed, with 100% majority support.

As this proposal has been executed, the debt ceiling was raised from 0 to 10m OD, the first vaults have been created, & the Open Dollar protocol has gone live!

Arbitrum Token Supported as Collateral

We’ve updated our collateral types for our mainnet launch!

In addition to some of the industry’s lowest fees for borrowing against $rETH and $wstETH, we now support the Arbitrum token as well!

Beyond these, it’s up to the DAO to add more.  

Open Dollar Genesis NFTs

To celebrate the launch of the Open Dollar mainnet, we designed a commemorative Genesis NFT to mint exclusively for 48 hours.

The NFT mint has now ended and all proceeds have been deposited in the DAO Treasury.  

Holders of these NFTs will be able to claim a special role in our Discord and may have access to special perks in the future!
