Launches: Tranquil Finance

Name of Project / DAO / Company

Tranquil Finance

Application type

Product Launch / Investment

Proposal overview

Tranquil Finance is an algorithmic market market protocol, allowing users to lend and borrow assets permissionlessly.

The Harmony ONE ecosystem currently lacks a lending/borrowing platform that is a crucial part of the DeFi ecosystem on other platforms (e.g. Venus on BSC, AAVE on Polygon, or Benqi on AVAX). A successful money market protocol will help drive liquidity into the Harmony ecosystem, benefiting all apps on the platform.

We have a working MVP live on the testnet that you can try out, and we plan to launch on the mainnet by the end of the month.

Proposal ask

We are applying for the standard launch grant, and will use the initial capital for marketing purposes.

We are also interested in discussing a potential investment, as we are quite far along in development and believe Tranquil can play a strategic role in helping grow the Harmony ecosystem.

Metrics for success

  • Mainnet launch
  • $100+ million TVL

Tesnet works well! really excited for this

This looks amazing! Testnet works really well. Are you primarily just waiting for an Oracle?

Lovely! The testnet is working super well, this is essentially a finished product just waiting for chainlink integration, happy to see someone making a money market on harmony! there’s been a couple that have attempted/promised to make a lending protocol but have seemingly disappeared/moved their ambitions elsewhere so glad to see someone finally come out with a working prototype!

Can you provide more information on how the protocol works, tokenomics, Devs, audits and roadmap ?

At first sight it looks like a promising project. I hope it works out to be that way! Just a few questions, can there be any transparency of the devs/people behind the project and, a timeline with the roadmap would be amazing. So we can see how things develop.

If legit, all the best for ur project!!

Working testnet! Lets DO THIS!

Hey everyone, Tranquil Finance has successfully launched for around 1 week now, and I would like to post an update on our progress so far:

  1. At the time of this writing, we have reached 63 million in deposits and 23 million in borrows across 5 markets, ONE, 1WBTC, 1ETH, 1USDC, and 1USDT, becoming the third largest protocol on Harmony by TVL in a short time. Over 3000 users have deposited assets into our protocol.

  2. A very significant percentage of all WBTC, ETH, USDC, and USDT bridged onto Harmony are deposited into Tranquil:

  • WBTC: 183 / 667, 27% (15% at the minimum if all borrows are re-deposited)
  • ETH: 6125 / 17787, 34% (28% at the minimum if all borrows are re-deposited)
  • USDC: 8562976 / 28701204, 30% (10% at minimum if all borrows are re-deposited)
  • USDT: 3678810 / 12795193, 29% (11% at minimum if all borrows are re-deposited)
  1. Our next step is to improve the trust, security and reliability of the protocol, as the only way to truly move the needle is to get more assets to be bridged onto the chain. We believe the best way to accomplish this is for users to feel that they are using a safe and reliable protocol. To achieve this, we will aim for the following milestones by the end of the month:
  • Put all contracts behind a 3-day timelock, and announce all changes to the protocol in advance. Initially, we wanted to preserve the tactical flexibility to make rapid changes, but now we feel the protocol is in a stable state.

  • Complete an audit of the core contracts. We have signed a contract and initiated an audit with CertiK with a preliminary timeline to be completed by the end of the month.

  • Migrate to Chainlink oracles. We have signed a contract with Chainlink and will have first access to their price feeds when they are available mainnet. Chainlink oracles will also allow us to raise the collateral factors across all markets, as they are set very conservatively right now due to using TWAP oracles.

We have also built a strong and passionate community around our project, centered around our Discord channel. I would like to thank our wonderful community for their feedback and support!
