Kelp DAO rsETH

On the 4RC podcast, DeFi Dad interviewed Borra and about , , and caps. During the interview, Borra explained the architecture of : [2]

“The architecture of rsETH is pretty interesting. We design most of our contracts so information flows in one direction, which is best for security. A great analogy is airport security; that's how we think about complexity for the most part. We have a deposit pool that accesses different lists, and this pool has no functionality to withdraw funds. Then, we have a set of NDC contracts, or no-delegated contracts, which take in funds from the deposit pool. Each NDC is fully autonomous in terms of interacting with it. Currently, only deposits are supported with NS, so each NC can effectively move any LSD from the deposit pool into our strategies. We have multiple NDCs deployed, and in the future, each will correspond to operators when they go live on I. When withdrawals are implemented, they will be another set of contracts that communicate with through NDCs, and the funds will go out through the withdrawal contract.”

“The information flow within the contract architecture is unidirectional. Regarding the security of these contracts, we had them ready by early to mid-October. Despite their limited functionality, we spent about a month and a half thoroughly testing them. We achieved 99% to 100% code coverage on the contracts. Additionally, we proceeded with audits from Sigma Prime and Code for Arena, which are among the top auditors we've collaborated with in the past on our other protocols. We are pleased with the results they provided. We are also considering launching a bug bounty program in the next week or two.”

He also discussed the various rewards users could earn on : [2]

“Users who deposit their in earn (EL) points. For every deposited into through , users earn 24 points daily. On the side, each is equivalent to 10,000 points daily, referred to as Kelp Miles. Early adopters, depositing since the launch until now and possibly in the near future, receive a 25% boost on these Kelp Miles as a reward for their trust in the new protocol. Consequently, they earn 1.25 times 10,000 miles daily per deposited.”

“Additionally, while there have been no rewards on the side, which also accepts as , ETHx offers a 30% yield boost on rewards. Furthermore, announced that they are integrating part of their treasury into . As a result, all points earned by ETHx position on will be distributed to ETHx holders on . Essentially, this makes the only accepted where users can earn more points.”
