Waves DeFi Master Plan
Waves released its DeFi Master Revival plan over the weekend. The plan addressed the recent de-pegging of the Neutrino Protocol Stablecoin (USDN) from the U.S. dollar in the wake of the Terra Classic (LUNC) and TerraClassicUSD (USTC) collapse.
The plan encompasses buying and locking CRV tokens with 45% of the WAVES staking profits from Neutrino to improve USDN. Additional measures mentioned are the liquidation of large accounts and improvements to Neutrino’s architecture.
