88mph is a fixed-rate yield-generation protocol that lets users earn on fixed yield on crypto assets, as well as speculate on future yields.
88mph is a protocol that offers fixed-rate yield products. It essentially acts as a non-custodial, on-chain intermediary between the user and third-party lending protocols like Compound and Aave. The platform offers additional yield in its native MPH token to incentivize depositors. To ensure solvency, it utilizes yield tokens, which can be used to speculate on variable third-party yields or to hedge the user's own borrowings. Users first deposit their preferred asset with a maturity between 1 day and 365 days. 88mph then tells the user the offered fixed APR, how mcuh the user will have earned at maturity, and how many MPH tokens the user will receive. Once the asset is deposited, it will immediately be deposited in the underlying third-party lending protocols to earn variable yield. The user's yield is represented by a non-fungible token (NFT). 88mph determines a deposit's fixed yield rate based on the 30-day exponential moving average (EMA) of the variable yield rate of the underlying yield protocol.
The protocol extracts a 20% fee from the fixed rate yield generated by the user's deposit. The rate displayed on 88mph is after fees. 88mph also charges an early withdrawal fee of 0.5% on the user's deposit if withdrawn prior to the maturity date. Protocol rewards earned by 88mph are collected and redistributed according to the protocol's revenue distribution. Half of all protocol generated fees are distributed to the governance treasury to acquire protocol-owned liquidity (POL) and as working capital and metagovernance assets.
You can deposit assets on 88mph to earn a fixed yield rate based on the maturity date. You can also lock MPH and ETH in 80/20 proportion in Balancer to receive veMPH. The maximum locking period is 4 years, while the minimum period is 1 week. veMPH holders are entitled to receve 50% of all protocol fees collected.
