UniLend Project Updates #6 — March 2021

Project Updates #6

🚀 This month, UniLend has marched forward with speed and determinism. We’ve had several major developments including the launch of our permissionless flash loan product on the Ethereum mainnet, which also signalled the launch of UFT staking through our intuitive interface and the completion of our Certik audit. We’ve forged new collaborations with other industry pioneers, and continued our community outreach efforts. In short, we’ve been moving as fast as the rocket we’re on!

🐛 We hope you’ve been with us every exciting step of the way and that you’ll stay with us as we continue to grow, develop, and add new functionality. There’s never a dull moment in the blockchain space, and with UniLend, each day brings exciting new developments. It’s good to be early!

💐 As we spring into April, UniLend is showing no signs of cooling down anytime soon. We have so much more to share with the amazing UniLend community.

Major Highlights

UniLend is Now Live on the Ethereum Mainnet

March 30: We were recently over the moon to announce that UniLend is now LIVE on the Ethereum mainnet! Hodlers are now able to stake UFT at their heart’s content! 🎉

💎 1% of the staking rewards pool will be distributed to stakers every day. Initially we deployed a staking cap and soft guarded launch of 1M $UFT tokens, though this number was quickly met and we removed the cap instantly! Stake your UFT here: https://app.unilend.finance/lend

ℹ️ Check out our comprehensive guide: rb.gy/qtftep

🦾 This is only the beginning for UniLend. We’ll be continually adding new functionality as we push ahead to unlock the true potential of DeFi. Stay tuned for further updates!

We Hit $6 Million TVL in our Staking Contract

March 31: $UFT staking is sizzling hot right now🔥

🤯More than $6 million worth of UFT tokens were locked in staking by the day after our staking launch.

🚀The game has just started, with permissionless staking for all tokens, sky’s the limit!

UniLend’s Flash Loans Pass Certik Audit with Flying Colors

March 26: 🚀Flash Loans, one of the core product offerings of UniLend’s comprehensive DeFi platform has been developed and its audit by Certik is now complete. The audit began immediately after the development and it went smoothly.

🛡The community has been highly anticipating Flash Loans but doing due diligence and performing this audit was in the best interest of the community. Constantly maintaining cybersecurity is the backbone of any great DeFi project.

💰Unlike traditional security audits, Certik’s Formal Verification audits mathematically prove program correctness and hacker resistance. Ensuring the best cybersecurity for UniLend is very important to us.

UniLend’s Flash Loans are 3x More Cost-Efficient than Other Popular Protocols Like Aave!

March 12: 📈 UniLend’s competitive flash loan product is poised to receive more traction than other products like it on the market today due to its cost efficiency and permissionless nature.

🔎 We test ran our flash loan iteration as a test before the recent launch and the results were astounding; we netted much better results than expected!

🚀 This is a great accomplishment for our team and we’re excited to get our flash loans officially launched and made available to the public.

UniLend Introduced an Innovative Token Burn Mechanism

March 24: 💎 We initiated a token burn mechanism alongside the launch of our flash loans product this month, reducing the supply of UFT while rewarding UFT stakers!

✅The UniLend flash loan fee of 0.05% is divided as follows:

• 70% is distributed to Token stakers

• 30% is used for market buy UFT, which we then burn

🚀 If we achieve a similar amount of traction as Aave’s flash loans (which are much less competitive compared to ours), this would result in over $1.7 Mn worth of fees every year.

💥 Say hello to a DeFi governance token jam packed with functionality and deflationary in nature!

Behold the First-Ever UniLend Flash Loan!

March 31: ⚡️ Our first flash loan was recently discovered on Etherscan, and we’re very excited to share the details!

💎The loan was a size of $403,936 which was 150K UFT at the time.

📊 This user just saved massively on fees, by paying our low flash loan fee of 0.05%. If they were to use a competing protocol like Aave they would’ve paid a 0.09% fee for the same transaction.

🛣 We have a long road ahead of us and we’re ready for the challenge. We won’t stop marching forward by continuing research for new and state-of-the-art ways to update our existing protocol.

📝 Get all the details about the first UniLend flash loan in our most recent blog.

UniLend Will Reward UFT Stakers with $100K UFT

March 30: 👀 With the launch of staking, we have begun to provide 100,000 UFT rewards for the Rewards Pool.

🎁 Our rewards pools are fully decentralized, so anyone can add rewards to them. Projects & users can use it at any time to add rewards for all UFT stakers! Rewards will be distributed through the automated staking rewards pool.

⏰ Currently the APY is near 17%. As more stakers are onboarding to the platform, the APY will decrease in order to accommodate all stakers. It pays to stake your UFT early!

👏We’d like to thank the community for their astounding support and will continue to push out the newest innovations to provide a truly decentralized lending protocol to unlock lending for ALL assets! To kickstart our staking feature, we will be providing 100,000 UFT in the beginning to the UFT Rewards pool.
