Proposal to add collateral support for stETH Senior Perpetual Yield Tranches

Summary
This proposal seeks to add collateral support for stETH Senior Perpetual Yield Tranches (PYTs) with 75% LTV, benefiting from the higher protection grade provided by this asset.

Motivation
Idle DAO partnered with Lido to bootstrap stETH Perpetual Yield Tranches (PYTs).

The PYT primitive is epochless (no locking periods) and is composed of fully-composable Junior and Senior Tranches. Senior Tranches have a first lien on the assets — they’re in line to be repaid first, in case of default.
This feature provides higher-quality collateral, protecting Liqee’s liquidity providers thanks to the built-in fund protection mechanism.
Senior Tranches enable lending protocols to integrate new yield sources with limited exposure to counterparty risks, providing a higher LTV ratio and opening their doors to new liquidity.

Lido’s stETH is already listed as a collateralized asset with a 70% LTV ratio, thus Idle DAO proposes the listing of stETH Senior PYT with 75% LTV.

The integration of the proposed collateral would enable Idle liquidity providers to use Liqee as the primary market to take out loans using their stETH Senior PYT deposits.

Liquidity
stETH PYTs manages approximately 2800 ETH: 80% is deposited on the Senior Tranche and 20% on the Junior side.

About PYTs
With Perpetual Yield Tranches, LPs can earn a higher share of yield by taking more risk (with Junior Tranche), or they can hedge risk by depositing their assets into an inherently protected tranche (with Senior Tranche).

Idle DAO launched PYTs in late December, after 4 months of guarded launch. Idle PYTs’ smart contracts have been audited by two different professional auditing firms before the release (Consensys Diligence and Certik). All the related and previous audits for the Idle protocol are available here.

PYTs are:

  • Epochless, flexible, with no locking periods: you can deposit or withdraw your liquidity at any time;
  • Fully fungible and composable ERC-20: other DeFi protocols and integrators can offer tailored products based on PYTs;
  • High-quality yield-bearing collateral: the built-in fund protection mechanism available on Senior Tranches makes them more resilient against default scenarios and can benefit from higher LTV.

Yes please. More staked tokens is necessary to differentiate Liqee from other markets
