SIP-304 proposes a liquidation mechanism for V3 the place liquidated positions have their collateral and debt distributed amongst different members of their vault. And if a whole vault is liquidated, all (or half) of its collateral is seized by the system and offered to repay debt.

Principally, this proposes 2 sorts of liquidations:

And when it’s locked, the swimming pools which can be backing the market can’t scale back the quantity of liquidity that’s being supplied to the market under a greenback denominated worth being specified by it. Afif simplified this by saying it’s principally a option to lock collateral to verify it stays connected to the debt.

Afif gave us some baseline information of how V2X works, then some massive image targets of Synthetix V3. He mentioned the frequent theme for V3 is maximized generalizability and modular product design.

And any debt or credit score accrued by that market can filter again down via the swimming pools and into the staking positions managed by the account.

Throughout the House, the Ambassadors additionally talked to the friends about main V3 options that can principally be milestones on the way in which to the massive image targets. They went into element about options similar to permissionless market and asset creation, differentiated debt swimming pools, improved staking, synth teleportation, scaling sUSD, and total structure.
