Treasury Dashboard Highlight — Treasury Asset Breakdown

Understanding the segmentation of the Olympus Treasury is an excellent way to learn more about what the protocol is trying to achieve (Reserve Currency of DeFi) and how it intends to achieve it (backing, partnerships, incubating, etc.).

Find below a brief description of the asset categories within the Treasury:

  • Reserve Assets — Assets used to back OHM and maintain stability/purchasing power. This includes stablecoin holdings like DAI & Frax as well as ETH & BTC.
  • Protocol-Owned Liquidity — OHM owned by the protocol that is deployed as a part of trading pairs on various DEX’s. These assets earn trading fees and help ensure there is plenty of liquidity for OHM trading.
  • Strategic Assets — Assets that give Olympus a voice in the future of DeFi. These include holdings in Convex, FXS, TOKE, and more.
  • Olympus Branch — Assets received from “friendly forks” such as Klima & Redacted Cartel for which Olympus has symbiotic, positive-sum relationships.
  • Olympus Incubator — Assets received from protocols that have gone through the incubator process, such as Vesta Finance, JonesDAO, and FiatDAO.
  • Olympus Pro — Assets obtained from Partner Protocols using the Olympus Pro platform to own their own liquidity.

OHM Numbers at a Glance

As we do each week, we returned to Delphi to gather up the latest protocol data and metrics.

You can access all of the enclosed charts and data at these wonderful Olympus Dune Analytics pages:

Please read on for this week’s numbers at a glance:

1. A Peek Around The Cryptoverse

2. Market Value of Treasury Assets: $442,904,219

  • 7-day change: -$9,416,706 (-2.0%)
  • 30-day change: +30,615,985 (+7.4%)

The Dune Dashboard does not reflect the following:

  • $24.4m of vlCVX
  • $23.1m LUSD staked in Liquity Stability Pool
  • $20m DAI staked in AAVE
  • $10m DAI deployed on Rari Fuse
  • $2.8mil of TRIBE

The Market Value of Treasury Assets shows the current market rate of all of the assets held within the Treasury, excluding vested tokens. This value will be more volatile than Treasury Risk Free Value as it encompasses all assets in the treasury and not solely stablecoins.

3. Risk Free Value of Treasury Assets: $255,503,073

  • 7-day change: +$421,524 (+0.2%)
  • 30-day change: +$1,801,500 (+0.7%)

As a reminder, when the supply growth of OHM outpaces the revenue inflow, RFV per OHM will drop — this is part of the motivation behind OIP-18 & OIP-63 as covered in the December 22nd edition of the newsletter.
