XCN Distribution Speeds

XCN Speed

The "XCN speed" unique to each market is an unsigned integer that specifies the amount of XCN that is distributed, per block, to suppliers and borrowers in each market. This number can be changed for individual markets by calling the _setXcnSpeed method through a successful Onyx Governance proposal.

The following is the formula for calculating the rate that XCN is distributed to each supported market.

utility = oTokenTotalBorrows * assetPrice

utilityFraction = utility / sumOfAllStrikedMarketUtilities

marketXcnSpeed = xcnRate * utilityFraction

XCN Distributed Per Block (All Markets)

The Comptroller contractโ€™s xcnRate is an unsigned integer that indicates the rate at which the protocol distributes XCN to marketsโ€™ suppliers or borrowers, every Ethereum block. The value is the amount of XCN (in wei), per block, allocated for the markets. Note that not every market has XCN distributed to its participants (see Market Metadata).

The xcnRate indicates how much XCN goes to the suppliers or borrowers, so doubling this number shows how much XCN goes to all suppliers and borrowers combined. The code examples implement reading the amount of XCN distributed, per Ethereum block, to all markets.

Comptroller

uint public xcnRate;

Solidity

Comptroller troll = Comptroller(0xABCD...);

// XCN issued per block to suppliers OR borrowers * (1 * 10 ^ 18)
uint xcnRate = troll.xcnRate();

// Approximate XCN issued per day to suppliers OR borrowers * (1 * 10 ^ 18)
uint xcnRatePerDay = xcnRate * 4 * 60 * 24;

// Approximate XCN issued per day to suppliers AND borrowers * (1 * 10 ^ 18)
uint xcnRatePerDayTotal = xcnRatePerDay * 2;

Web3 1.2.6

const comptroller = new web3.eth.Contract(comptrollerAbi, comptrollerAddress);

let xcnRate = await comptroller.methods.xcnRate().call();
xcnRate = xcnRate / 1e18;

// XCN issued to suppliers OR borrowers
const xcnRatePerDay = xcnRate * 4 * 60 * 24;

// XCN issued to suppliers AND borrowers
const xcnRatePerDayTotal = xcnRatePerDay * 2;

XCN Distributed Per Block (Single Market)

The Comptroller contract has a mapping called xcnSpeeds. It maps oToken addresses to an integer of each marketโ€™s XCN distribution per Ethereum block. The integer indicates the rate at which the protocol distributes XCN to marketsโ€™ suppliers or borrowers. The value is the amount of XCN (in wei), per block, allocated for the market. Note that not every market has XCN distributed to its participants (see Market Metadata).

The speed indicates how much XCN goes to the suppliers or the borrowers, so doubling this number shows how much XCN goes to market suppliers and borrowers combined. The code examples implement reading the amount of XCN distributed, per Ethereum block, to a single market.

Comptroller

mapping(address => uint) public xcnSpeeds;

Solidity

Comptroller troll = Comptroller(0x123...);
address oToken = 0xabc...;

// XCN issued per block to suppliers OR borrowers * (1 * 10 ^ 18)
uint xcnSpeed = troll.xcnSpeeds(oToken);

// Approximate XCN issued per day to suppliers OR borrowers * (1 * 10 ^ 18)
uint xcnSpeedPerDay = xcnSpeed * 4 * 60 * 24;

// Approximate XCN issued per day to suppliers AND borrowers * (1 * 10 ^ 18)
uint xcnSpeedPerDayTotal = xcnSpeedPerDay * 2;

Web3 1.2.6

const oTokenAddress = '0xabc...';

const comptroller = new web3.eth.Contract(comptrollerAbi, comptrollerAddress);

let xcnSpeed = await comptroller.methods.xcnSpeeds(oTokenAddress).call();
xcnSpeed = xcnSpeed / 1e18;

// XCN issued to suppliers OR borrowers
const xcnSpeedPerDay = xcnSpeed * 4 * 60 * 24;

// XCN issued to suppliers AND borrowers
const xcnSpeedPerDayTotal = xcnSpeedPerDay * 2;
