The road ahead for fUSD and sFTM

fUSD is Fantom’s native, over-collateralized stablecoin which in the past could be minted only against staked FTM (sFTM). The Foundation is proposing changes regarding new collateral assets, loan-to-value ratios, liquidations, and how to repay the outstanding debt. The goal is to make fUSD a thriving, Fantom-native stablecoin that allows Fantom stakers and token holders of Fantom projects (e.g. BOO, SPIRIT, BEETS, LQDR) to borrow stables in a capital efficient and safe manner.

The team is currently waiting for the audit results and is putting on the finishing touches before deployment.
