Why Coffin Finance uses FTM as collateral instead of USDC,USDT,DAI, etc.,?

Our immediate focus is creating a true decentralized stable token. If we use centralized stable token as collateral, can we regard it as decentralized? We need to use non-fiat back currency as collateral for decentralization.
Plus, we believe in FTM potential value. So we are going to use native FTM as collateral.

How will the withdrawal taxes collected by V2 Farm be used?

We are planning to use it as profit sharing fund after DAO. We believe It should be used for long term holders.

What is Target Collateral Ratio (TCR) for minting?

The system tries to peg CoUSD equivalent to $1.00 USD, but the collateral ratios for minting and redemption are sometimes different.
Minting enables us to create new CoUSD tokens from FTM and COFFIN. The COFFIN token will be burned. The FTM is used as collateral. The ratio depends on current TCR by default. The ratio is updated every 60 minutes and up (by default) .
Anyone can update the ratio if 60 minutes has passed.
When updating TCR, the system checks the current CoUSD value in USD. If the value is above the peg, the TCR will decrease slightly. On the other hand, if the value is below the peg, the TCR will increase slightly.
Please read the following page also.

How to determine Target Collateral Ratio for minting.

You can see the TCR on minting page.
Or you can see the ratio on Tool page as well.

How to get to know current Effective Collateral Ratio for redeeming?

Please check Redeem Page. Then,
please check "Output FTM · XXX%".
It's current Effective Collateral Ratio.

Why sometimes Effective Collateral Ratio is 100%?

The protocol uses FTM as collateral. If FTM value goes up, collateral ratio also goes up.
As of 28th Oct, our collateral is 100% FTM, but we have plan to use it for lending to earn more FTM. And there are other ideas, e.g., rebalancing/delta-neutral/options.

What is Minting?

Minting is create CoUSD (USD equivalent) from FTM + COFFIN.
When a user creates CoUSD, the protocol keeps FTM as collateral, and burn COFFIN.

What is Redeeming

The protocol returns FTM & COFFIN to users when the user request to convert CoUSD.
