The @hbdstabilizer account is trying to bring back the peg of the HBD to the dollar. It receives HBD from the DAO/DHF and sells it on the internal market for HIVE and then sent that HIVE back to the @hive.fund, where the HIVE is being converted to HBD.
It has been doing this for two months now, as the first time the @hbdstabilizer received funds was on February 20. Let’s take a look at some data and the performance of the account.
The @hbdstabilizer has been controversial at times, because some of the other projects that were funded from the @hive.fund, stopped receiving funds and all the available daily budget was redirected to the @hbdstabilizer.
A reminder the DHF can pay a maximum of 1% per day of the available HBD in the fund. It can’t go higher than that. Because of this and the increase of the value of the HBD, more funds were needed to bring the HBD price down. In the process all the HIVE that was sent to the fund is instantly converted to HBD, increasing the HBD in the fund, and increasing the daily available budget.
In the last days it seems that more projects are funded again because of the larger daily budget and most of them implemented a code, where they return the excess HBD if the price of the HBD is above the one dollar peg.
First let’s take a look at the received funds. Here is the chart.
As mentioned, the @hbdstabilizer started receiving funds for the first time on February 20, 2021. At first it was 2.3k per day then up to 7.2k per day, and constantly increasing up to 23k HBD per day.
In the period above the @hbdstabilizer have received a total of 715k HBD.
Apart from the @hive.fund, the @hbdstabilizer is receiving funds from posts beneficiaries as well. There is a post on every few days and plus comments that are voted on and those rewards go to the stabilizer account.
Here is the chart.
Note for the purpose of simple presentation all rewards are presented in HBD equivalent value.
We can see that the rewards from the post’s beneficiaries started a bit later, at the end of March. At first the value of the posts payouts was around 400 HBD per day, but then it grows to more than a 1000 HBD per day.
In the period above a total of 20k in HBD equivalent was transferred to the stabilizer from posts beneficiaries.
We have seen the funding of the @hbdstabilizer now lets take a look at the funds that it has sent back to the fund.
First the HIVE transfers.
We can see that at first there was around 20k HIVE per day sent back to the @hive.fund, and then at the end of March it started to grow reaching 70k HIVE per day.
In the period above a total of 2.1 million HIVE was sent to the @hive.fund from the @hbdstabilizer account.
There are some small amounts of HBD transfers from the @hbdstabilizer to the @hive.fund. These are most likely the beneficiaries rewards. There is a total of 23k HBD sent to the @hive.fund in the period.
If we convert the HIVE sent to the @hive.fund into HBD and add the few HBD transfers we get this chart.
Disclaimer: I have been using the historical price of the HBD to HIVE conversions. Not totally sure what price the @hive.fund uses for instant HIVE to HBD conversions. If someone know the details let me know in the comments and if wrong I’ll correct the chart and the numbers.
With the ratio for HIVE to HBD used as above, we can see that at first the HBD added to the @hive.fund was in the range of 5k to 10k daily, but then it went up reaching almost 50k on one occasion. On average in the last days the amount of HBD added is in the range between 35k to 40k.
In the period above there was almost 1.2 million more HBD added to the fund from the @hbdstabilizer. If we compare this with the 715k HBD received its almost a half a million difference in HBD or 70% more. This again using the conversion ratio as mentioned and the numbers can be wrong.
At the moment of writing this there is 2.7 millions HBD in the fund, meaning a 27k HBD daily budget. A few month back this budget was less than a one million HBD. The @hive.fund has grown its available daily budget significantly in the last months, more than double, or almost triple.
The @hbdstabilizer has a big impact in this, but its not the only one, the slow conversion of ninja mine HIVE to HBD is happening with around 38k HIVE (20k HBD at current price) added from that as well, and the overall inflation. The increase in the HIVE price has also a part in this.
Anyway its interesting to see the impact of the stabilizer on the fund, and it has been overall positive. The fund now has a healthy amount of daily budget, that keeps on growing and can fund in parallel the projects and the stabilizer.
All the best
