MIP-15 | Launch paUSD on Polygon PoS

This proposal aims to launch the paUSD on Polygon PoS.

Following the MIP-14, which introduced the paUSD a decentralized and overcollateralized USD stablecoin and its deployment approval on Ethereum with MIP-14.1 et MIP-14.2 we propose to launch it on Polygon PoS.

Since the paUSD will be an over-collateralized stablecoin, it is obvious to assign collateral to it.

For simplicity and efficiency, we suggest using the same accepted collateral as the PAR. They have mostly proven their ability to be strong, decentralized and liquid. In addition, they have all been recently studied by the Mimo Labs team in order to establish the best collateral parameters to keep the protocol safe.

Here is a summary of the different proposed collaterals and their respective parameters :

Collateral Liquidation Ratio Minimum Collateral Ratio Debt Limit Liquidation Bonus
USDC 104% 104% 500k paUSD 3%
wETH 130% 130% 500k paUSD 3%
wBTC 130% 130% 500k paUSD 3%
WMATIC 145% 150% 500k paUSD 5%
CRV 130% 135% 100k paUSD 5%
BAL 130% 135% 100k paUSD 5%
AAVE 130% 135% 100k paUSD 5%
LINK 130% 135% 50k paUSD 5%
SUSHI 240% 250% 25k paUSD 10%
DAI 105% 105% 250k paUSD 3%
stMATIC 145% 150% 100k paUSD 5%
MaticX 145% 150% 100k paUSD 5%
wstETH 130% 135% 100k paUSD 5%

At launch, the paUSD token would not be seamlessly bridgeable between Ethereum and Polygon. It would be necessary to sell it on chain A for another token (e.g. USDC) and then bridge this token on chain B to buy paUSD on chain B. This could lead to situations where the paUSD price is different depending on the chain. However, please note that Mimo Labs is currently working on a secure bridge framework using Layer Zero where paUSD would be bridged seamlessly.

is there an estimates date of delivering the bridge framework using Layer zero?

That’s not the purpose of this proposal, but no, we don’t have any ETA yet
