What is an Arkadiko Vault?

Arkadiko allows users to create a Vault. Users can deposit and withdraw assets into their Vault. Based upon the value of the assets locked in the Vault, a Vault Value is decided.

Vault Value allows users to create an overcollateralized debt position. Currently, Arkadiko allows users to mint up to half of the Vault Value in USDA. The user takes on a debt in USDA and now has the responsibility to monitor the health of his vault (to avoid it becoming undercollateralized) and to repay back his USDA debt should he ever wish to regain access to his assets in the Vault.

What is USDA ?

USDA is a stablecoin created by Arkadiko. USDA operates on a full reserve model. For every USDA in existence, there exist assets locked into Arkadiko Vaults such that the value of all assets in Arkadiko Vaults at all times eclipses the value of the total amount of USDA in existence. USDA is created when a users created USDA debt against collateral in an Arkadiko Vault. USDA is destroyed or burned when a user repays his debt in USDA.
