rDPX v2: Where does the yield come from?


The $rDPX v2 system generates yield to be distributed to its participants.

The question on everyone’s mind is likely “Where does this yield come from?”

To understand this, allow CEO to walk you through how bonded tokens are deployed to generate yield.

Let us take a gander.

We will use the example of 0.75 $ETH and 0.25 $ETH of $rDPX bonded for 1 $rtETH.

The Bonded Tokens

Upon bonding, the rDPX v2 system receives:

  1. 0.75 $ETH
  2. 0.25 $ETH of $rDPX

And mints 1 $rtETH to the bonder.

The bonded tokens become Dopex PoL and can then be redeployed to earn yield.

Deployment of Bonded Tokens

The bonded tokens are deployed to three different reserves that serve different functions:

  1. $dpxETH Reserve (receives 0.25 $ETH)
  2. $ETH Backing Reserve (receives 0.5 $ETH)
  3. $rDPX Backing Reserve (receives 0.25 $ETH of $rDPX)

$dpxETH Reserve

0.25 $ETH is allocated to the $dpxETH reserve where 0.25 $dpxETH is minted and paired for dpxETH/ETH Curve LP Tokens.

This is staked on Convex to earn yield in the form of $CRV, $CVX, and trading fees.

$ETH Backing Reserves

0.5 $ETH is allocated to the $ETH Backing Reserve before being redeployed.


The AMO is a contract that allows $ETH to be paired with $rDPX from the $rDPX Backing Reserves for defined functions, including:


$rDPX has a transfer tax (variable, initially 10%) which is earned by the treasury.


The peg stability module is a contract that allows the swapping of tokens against the $dpxETH/ETH liquidity to maintain peg.


The staking module is a contract that allows unutilized $ETH to be staked on an LSD service such as FraxFerry or Lido Finance.

This generates yield in the form of staking rewards.

$rDPX Backing Reserves

0.25 $ETH worth of $rDPX is allocated to the $rDPX Backing Reserve where it may then be deployed to the AMO.

Refer to the $ETH Backing Reserves; AMO section above for more details.

Yield Sources

To summarize the deployments and yield sources, please refer to this so-called “table”.

Yield Source
$dpxETH Reserve
dpxETH/ETH Liquidity
$CRV, $CVX, trading fees
$ETH Backing Reserve
Trading fees
Arbitrage fees
Staking yield
$rDPX Backing Reserve

Truly incredible.

Closing Comments

By deploying bonded tokens across DeFi, the $rDPX system can generate yield to sustain continued growth of $rtETH supply.

More $rtETH supply? More integrations we can seek with other protocols.

Until next time, my beloved readers.

Warm regards,
