Since implementing phase 1.1 of the SLIR proposal we have been getting questions from the community about the rationale of pursuing the Balancer pool and what it means for the project as a whole. After gathering some data in the past few weeks we wanted to use this post to explain the finer points of our economic policy at the Strudel protocol.

Strudel Macro View: Reduce the Float!

One of the issues we found when we took over the project in February was that the Strudel Token (TRDL) had a lot of floating supply, meaning that there were a lot more tokens in wallets than in…


The Problem:

The current market trend is extremely volatile, and new users are often drawn towards high-risk “cheap” meme coins that often lead to massive losses and dangerous rug pulls. We have also noticed that these users tend to perceive BTC as “too expensive” and many do not have an allocation for it in their portfolios.

There is also an issue with Ethereum gas fees for the average user where trading becomes too expensive to perform on a regular basis. This is not healthy for the ecosystem because meme coin investors are often left holding worthless tokens.

The Plan:

Grumpy Sat (gSAT) is the…


Dear Strudelers,

Now that the Strudel development team has wrapped up the new governance implementation, the fully trustless one-way vBCH L2 bridge to BSC, and the two-way BSC-ETH bridge, it is finally time to start pushing forward with plans to grow our ecosystem and push for increased adoption. Up to this point, the Strudel development has relied on the farming allocation to the development multisig and out-of-pocket contributions from the development team to create the products that we enjoy today. Strudel is very much a labor of love from the people involved and the community that supports us. …


Uniswap v3 is upon us and we have been looking at the functionalities of the farm and have now started to write our new farming contracts. In the meantime, we feel like it’s time to review once again our incentive schedule to best align them to the goals of the Strudel protocol.

The Current Setup

The current farming setup is centered around vBTC:ETH UNI-V2 LP and TRDL:ETH SLP pools which currently receive 80% of the farming rewards. Additionally, 20% rewards are supporting the oneVBTC:ETH pool. …


We are happy to announce our new partnership with the Cometh.io team! We have created liquidity pools for $TRDL and $vBTC in their DEX on Matic. The Cometh team has agreed to a liquidity incentive program for our tokens which will reward both $MUST and $TRDL to liquidity providers. With this, we expand our offerings for passive income for our community and are happy to welcome the $MUST community to our midst. You can check the details of the liquidity program below:


This is shaping up to be one of the biggest weeks for $TRDL and we wanted to keep the community up to date with what is going on with our protocol. We want to thank everyone who is part of the $TRDL community because you are all true believers. We have created value for ETH and will continue to bring strudel flavored assets here and onwards to other chains. This is just the start!

Governance Reimagined… again

We have been hard at work creating added value opportunities for vBTC. However, it is time to look back into the $TRDL token in order…


The Strudel team is happy to announce that we have finally found a lending solution for the Strudel Protocol! We have joined forces with Kitten.finance and their amazingly talented dev who has created a fully functional money market for ERC-20 tokens. This allowed us to create 3 vaults where borrowers can deposit either vBTC, TRDL, or oneVBTC and borrow ETH, while lenders can enjoy a 40% APY return on their deposits.

This platform does not rely on liquidations, at the expiry date if the loans have not been paid lenders get back an increased amount of tokens provided they…


Hello everyone! The Strudel team has been researching new ways to deploy vBTC in order to incentivize and maintain the peg. One of the solutions we have researched using is Curve Finance (CRV), a project long on the forefront of stablecoins and stablecoin utility. CRV has created a pool factory deployment that was front ended by the Yearn team at crv.finance

We have already been following this product for some time but finally, we have managed to seed the liquidity on a v2 pool. The pools are called Metapools, which means that we are pairing vBTC with the 3CRV Bitcoin…


Founded by Tomasz Wojewoda, AGA is mining-backed yield farming with incentives for holders. Liquidity providers receive yield and stakers lockup tokens and receive staking rewards in AGA. Once a week, mining rewards are used to buy back AGA from the open market. The AGA circulating supply is less than 3,000,000 with a total supply of 6,000,000.

We at Strudel are happy to announce that AGA has recognized the potential of Strudel to enhance its token model by guaranteeing participation in our protocol. Strudel and AGA will facilitate a solution that instantly converts AGA mining rewards (BTC, BCH) into vBTC and…


Greetings, Strudel Nation. It has been an incredible week at Strudel.finance and we wanted to share some updates with the community. And make no mistake, this is just the beginning…

The Strudel Premium

The Master Chefs over here at Strudel Finance started off by baking vBTC, now the price has not only been restored to its 1:1 BTC to vBTC value but has now surpassed the market price of BTC by about 2% as of writing. What happened? Well, along with incredible community support, the team was able to pitch our humble little bakery to a group of venture capitalists, convince them…
