dCity SIM + DeFi - The SWAP.HIVE:SIM Tribaldex Diesel Pool
The SWAP.HIVE:SIM Tribaldex Diesal Pool is a DeFi opportunity that all HIVE stakeholders can take advantage of.
While many Hive account holders are rightly focusing on DeFi opportunities for Splinterlands DEC, there is another gamified yield farming opportunity that even allows you to keep one side of your LP in HIVE.
In case you missed it, Tribaldex’s addition of Diesel Pools means that zero-fee DeFi is now on Hive.
While the selection of pools, especially pools that offer rewards for those providing liquidity is still quite limited, the SWAP.HIVE:SIM pool is certainly worth a look.
Whether you’re an active dCity gamer or not, by offering LP rewards for a pool featuring HIVE, the in-game currency of SIM is now a valid investment for all HIVE DeFi degens.
In this section of our dCity SIM guide, we discuss the SWAP.HIVE:SIM LP, how and why all HIVE investors shouldn’t sleep on this opportunity.
SIM is massively on sale right now
For newcomers to dCity, what you may not know by looking at a chart is that SIM is meant to be soft-pegged to 0.005 HIVE.
Within the dCity game itself, buying 1 card costs either 4 HIVE or 800 SIM tokens.
So as you can see, 800 x 0.005 = 1 HIVE, which is where the basis behind the peg comes from and why we only refer to it as being soft.
With the price of SIM currently sitting well below the 0.005 peg, players are obviously better off buying new cards with SIM rather than HIVE.
This creates demand for SIM, helping to soak up any excess supply being dumped onto the market by established players.
3rd edition cards came and went without bringing SIM supply/demand back into equilibrium around the soft peg price.
Right now, the established players ability to generate SIM which they need to dump on the market far outweighs any demand from new or growing cities.
The SWAP.HIVE:SIM LP will generate demand
The addition of the SWAP.HIVE:SIM LP has the ability to alter this supply/demand imbalance.
Potentially further to the complete opposite direction but soaking up all of the available supply... and then some!
You see, any SIM placed in the LP still counts towards your in-game SIM POWER.
SIM POWER is used within the dCity game itself for:
Earning holding rewards
So if you add liquidity to the SWAP.HIVE:SIM LP, you not only receive all of the above listed benefits, but also earn LP rewards for providing liquidity on top.
Now, as the Hive blockchain doesn’t have fees, all Tribaldex LP rewards must come from the token’s inflation.
Take a look at the dCity swap tab and you can see what’s on offer:
With over 23 million SIM diverted to the rewards pool this year, this will again be all about finding that equilibrium between supply and demand.
Something I’m excited to watch play out in real time.
With 58K HIVE and 54 million SIM currently in the pool, it has certainly gotten off to a cracker of a start.
Without a new player boom like we’re seeing in Splinterlands, any changes we start to see will likely all be from current in-game whales.
If we do start to see a turn in price as the total liquidity added increases, it will be an excellent sign before the eventual new player rush does come.
Don’t sleep on dCity!
Final thoughts on dCity SIM + Defi in the SWAP.HIVE:SIM Tribaldex Diesel Pool
With a current APR of just over 25%, the incentive is certainly there to provide liquidity.
Especially if you’re a dCity player and current owner of a city that generates a huge SIM income you’d normally dump straight onto the market.
With the price of SIM still well below its soft peg, there’s certainly an opportunity to take advantage of the SWAP.HIVE:SIM LP.
While the risk of impermanent loss always remains, the fact the LP is pooled with SWAP.HIVE means that even if SIM rips higher and returns to its peg, you’re simply seeing it sold for HIVE.
A token you obviously want to stack if you’ve remained here through the bear market.
On the other hand, if HIVE outperforms in the short term, your SIM position simply increases while the supply/demand imbalance that we talked about the LP correcting, comes back into line.
Whether you’re a dCity player or not, there’s certainly an opportunity for all HIVE investors to take advantage of dCity’s DeFi markets.
Best of probabilities to you.
