B.Protocol is a backstop liquidity protocol that aims to provide better stability and unlock higher efficiency for DeFi lending platforms.
B.Protocol works by pooling user funds into Backstop pools. This liquidity is used for liquidations as they occur on the integrated DeFi platform. While the funds are sitting idle waiting to be deployed for liquidations, they accrue either interest or liquidity mining rewards. When a liquidation takes place, the Backstop AMM (B.AMM) smart contract pulls the required funds from the Backstop pool to facilitate the liquidation and automatically puts the collateral for sale. Once the collateral is sold, the profits are then redeposited back into the Backstop pool.
Currently, the protocol's users receive bScores based on their usage of the platform. This score is a way for B.Protocol to calculate a user's part in the liquidation proceeds of the lending platform. bScores are registered on the blockchain but are not transferrable, and the liquidation proceeds and future governance votes will be based on the user's bScore. The different monetization capabilities are still being assessed and will be discussed via governance in the future.
You can deposit stablecoins into B.Protocol to backstop liquidity for Liquity or Vesta Finance to earn liquidation gains and protocol incentives. The protocol automates the selling of accumulated liquidations gains back to the underlying stablecoin every time a liquidation takes place.
