Price Stability Mechanism
Sikka Protocol uses a rebase mechanism to keep the market price of 1 SIKKA equal to 1 US Dollar. When experiencing disruption, and SIKKA’s market price not perfectly matching the US Dollar, SIKKA rebalances:
- When SIKKA reaches $1, the supply of SIKKA is limited. This way:
- Borrowers are motivated to purchase SIKKA from the market to repay the loan since it is at a discount.
- Sikka will raise SIKKA borrowing interest to reduce SIKKA borrowing demand, which will improve SIKKA farming rewards.
- If SIKKA exceeds $1, the supply of SIKKA is expanded. This way:
- Borrowers are driven to borrow more SIKKA to sell for other assets since SIKKA is at a premium.
- Sikka will cut SIKKA farming benefits by lowering SIKKA borrowing interest to lessen demand for SIKKA farming.
