1. What is B.Protocol?

B.Protocol is a multi-chain user-based backstop liquidity protocol. It aims to make lending platforms more capital efficient and stable by handling liquidations in scale, using its Backstop Automated Market Maker (B.AMM) novel design.
B.Protocol is currently live over:
  • Liquity Protocol (Ethereum mainnet)
  • Hundred Finance (Arbitrum, Fantom, Polygon)
  • Vesta Finance (Arbitrum)
  • Fuse (Ethereum mainnet, Arbitrum - coming soon)
With B.Protocol, users (aka Backstoppers) can deposit funds into backstop pools that will be used for the liquidation process, providing liquidation profits to the backstoppers.
While users' deposited funds are sitting idle in the backstop pool they are deposited as supply liquidity on the lending market to gain interest rates and/or liquidity mining rewards. When liquidation is needed, the funds are used to execute the trade with 5-10% profit. Finally, a novel on-chain algorithm is used to rebalance the liquidation proceeds back to the originally deposited currency, using a price feed to avoid price impact and potential cascading liquidation events.
B.Protocol V1 incentivizes professional traders to act as keepers in MakerDAO and Compound, by letting MakerDAO and Compound users give liquidation priority to these keepers, in return for sharing the proceeds of the liquidations. This way the miners' extracted profits (MEV) go back to the users of the platform, and the platform enjoys more committed liquidators. B.Protocol v1 is still supported but is no longer the main focus of the community and the development team.

2. Who should use B.Protocol?

Part of a DAO? Open a Fuse pool to let your community borrow against your native token

B.Protocol is integrated with Fuse (Rari Capital/ Fei/ Tribe) and offers its backstop to any new or existing pool on any EVM compatible chain. The B.Protocol DAO will join as co-admins to the manage the risk factors of the pool with your DAO, and will ensure liquidations are handled as intended with a user-based backstop integration.
