Liquid

Acala provides liquidity for staked Polkadot (DOT) tokens - to extract all derivative values of DOTs, and power more financial activities without compromising overall network security. Staked DOTs are released as fungible & liquid assets (L-DOTs).

Flexible

Anyone who owns the type of crypto assets supported by the Acala network can leverage them to generate aUSD tokens by creating a Collateralized Debt Position (CDP) through the Honzon protocol. Honzon is the proxy module that users will interact with for stablecoin functionalities such as create, update and transfer CDPs.

  • What is Acala’s consensus mechanism?

    Parachains such as the Acala Network will rely on Collators to provide recent state transitions to the validators on the Polkadot Relay Chain. The validators on the Relay Chain would operate under the NPoS (Nominated Proof-of-Stake) mechanism to maximize chain security. Collators maintain a “full-node” for the Acala Network parachain, producing parachain blocks and proving bad behaviors and in return are awarded ACA tokens.

  • How is Acala governed?

    The overall Acala network is governed by the General Council and specialized councils, but token holders have the right to propose network updates and risk parameter adjustments. Specialized councils would govern specific domains of the network.

  • How are staked DOT tokens converted into liquid L-DOT tokens?

    Users can essentially mint L-DOTs by supplying DOTs to the staking pool managed by the Homa Protocol, and redeem L-DOTs for the underlying DOTs. The exchange rate between L-DOTs and the underlying DOTs are likely to increase over time, as staking rewards are accrued by validating and nominating. The Homa Protocol will execute the staking strategy to deploy locked DOTs.
