Overview: What is ARTH?
Welcome to ARTH guidebook. This page talks about ARTH as a flatcoin and how it works.
ARTHis a flatcoin that is designed to appreciate overtime against the US dollar while at the same time, it remains relatively stable.
ARTHis minted/burnt using decentralized smart contracts that use
ETHas collateral to maintain its peg. The interest rate charged to mint
ETHis 0%, which makes it very cost-effective for borrowing/lending.
ARTHis fully collateralized with mechanisms that give it a backing of at least 110% in
You take out a loan with
ETH, and that’s it. No interests accrued at all.
Unlike other lending protocols like Compound or MakerDAO, there are no interest fees that the borrower has to pay when borrowing
ARTHdoes this is by charging a one-time borrowing fee that adjusts algorithmically whenever a loan is opened. This makes ARTH the cheapest stablecoin to borrow against with
110% — that’s it!
Although we advise users to put a CR above 200%, the system allows users to borrow with a collateral ratio of up to 110%. That means you can only be liquidated if your CR reaches below 110%.
One of the biggest differentiators of
ARTHamongst other stablecoins is that it is designed to appreciate against the US dollar.
This means users who hold
ARTHfor longer periods of time should see an increase in their purchasing power when compared to other currencies.
These are the deployed contracts on the various networks.
