CORE-LAYER: Revolutionizing Restaking in the Core Delta Ecosystem
CORE-LAYER marks a revolutionary stride, introducing a restaking protocol that reshapes the dynamics of asset utilization, security, and yield optimization.
CORE-LAYER is a restaking primitive for CORE Delta using Eigenlayer as an inspiration but with locked liquidity as an additional layer of security.
Key Features include locked liquidity, hyper-deflationary measures, vested strategies, MEV integration, and native asset redemption.
Native LST are CoreETH, for locked ETH and DeltaETH for vested ETH. The redemption mechanism involves burning Core for ETH and DELTA for native ETH, ensuring a secure flow within the Core Delta Ecosystem Layer.
cVault Finance can ZAP any LST or LPs containing LSTs into coreETH and deltaETH respectively.
CORE-LAYER introduces a groundbreaking restaking protocol within the Core Delta ecosystem, departing from EigenLayer to build a more robust StakingLayer. Seamlessly integrating EigenLayer’s principles, it optimizes asset utilization, mitigates risks, and fosters a decentralized environment. Key features include locked liquidity, hyper-deflationary measures, vested strategies, MEV integration, native asset redemption, and on-chain exit positions. The introduction of CoreETH and DeltaETH as distinct liquidity restaking tokens adds flexibility, and integrations span advanced economic incentives, liquid derivatives, simplified staking, non-custodial transformations, strategic restaking, locked liquidity, incentive aggregation, and innovative derivatives. The redemption mechanism involves burning Core for ETH and DELTA for native ETH, ensuring a secure flow within the Core Delta Ecosystem Layer.
Foundational Principles of CORE-LAYER:
CORE-LAYER doesn’t build on EigenLayer; it forges a more robust StakingLayer within the Core Delta ecosystem. Core Delta participants gain access to a restaking mechanism that optimizes asset utilization, mitigates risks, and fosters a decentralized, participatory, and risk-aware environment.
Distinctive Features of CORE-LAYER:
Locked Liquidity and Hyper-Deflationary Measures:
- CORE-LAYER integrates locked liquidity for heightened security. The protocol further boosts token scarcity and value over time through hyper-deflationary measures.
Vested Strategies and MEV Integration:
- CORE-LAYER introduces vested strategies and MEV (Miner Extractable Value) capabilities. This encourages prolonged engagement and introduces advanced arbitrage modules for superior asset management, yield optimization, and risk mitigation within the Core Delta ecosystem.
Native Asset Redemption and On-Chain Vested Exit Positions:
- CORE-LAYER pioneers the concept of burning CORE or DELTA for redeeming native ETH. Additionally, the protocol introduces on-chain vested exit positions, enabling secure and programmable exit strategies directly on the blockchain.
Floor Price Compounding and Liquidity Shield:
- CORE-LAYER facilitates floor price compounding. Coupled with locked liquidity, staking rewards and hyper-deflationary measures, this establishes a robust liquidity shield against external attacks and market fluctuations, ensuring a resilient Core Delta ecosystem.
Superior Yield, Risk Mitigation, and Modular Liquid Staking:
- CORE-LAYER optimizes returns, minimizes risk, and introduces modular liquid staking via locked liquidity mechanisms.
Inception of Liquid Derivatives:
- CORE-LAYER introduces liquid derivatives. Participants can repurpose staked assets (stETH example), enhancing security and unlocking additional rewards.
Core Delta Ecosystem Layer:
In the ongoing evolution of the Core Delta ecosystem, CORE-LAYER introduces two distinct liquidity restaking tokens: CoreETH and DeltaETH. These tokens represent locked ETH managed by Core and vested ETH managed by Delta, respectively, adding a new layer of flexibility and value creation to the ecosystem.
Key Integrations within the Core Delta Ecosystem Layer:
Advanced Economic Incentives:
- The Core Delta Layer fortifies Ethereum’s security through advanced economic incentives, rewarding participants for maintaining network integrity.
Liquid Derivatives for Asset Utilization:
- Core Delta explores the introduction of coreETH, a liquid staking derivative, empowering users to maximize asset utilization while participating in staking.
Simplified Liquid Staking Solutions:
- Core Delta introduces streamlined liquid staking solutions, addressing liquidity challenges and providing benefits for participants, validators, and node operators, all under the umbrella of CoreETH and DeltaETH.
Non-Custodial Staking with Token Transformation:
- Core Delta adopts a non-custodial approach, allowing users to seamlessly transform staked assets into two versatile tokens - CoreETH and DeltaETH - representing distinct management structures.
Strategic Restaking Management:
- Core Delta introduces a user-friendly interface for strategic restaking, focusing on securing validated services and optimizing yields with CoreETH and DeltaETH as the primary tokens.
Pioneering Locked Liquidity and Modular Liquid Staking:
- Core Delta pioneers the integration of locked liquidity, enhancing security while allowing users to earn staking rewards and native ecosystem rewards using CoreETH and DeltaETH as the core tokens.
Cryptoeconomic Security Primitive:
- Core Delta incorporates cryptoeconomic principles to repurpose staked assets securely, enhancing the overall security of the ecosystem with CoreETH and DeltaETH as foundational tokens.
Incentive Aggregation from Other Products:
- Incentives from staking, options, DEX, LP futures, and more can be seamlessly aggregated into CORE-LAYER, creating a holistic and rewarding experience for participants.
Innovative Liquid Derivatives for DeFi:
- Core Delta explores the introduction of innovative liquid derivatives, offering tradeability and usability in DeFi while mitigating risks associated with basket-based tokens, all tied to CoreETH and DeltaETH.
Decentralized Restaking for Network Security:
- Core Delta integrates decentralized restaking mechanisms, encouraging users to actively participate in the validation of services and earn rewards, leveraging CoreETH and DeltaETH for enhanced network security.
The redemption mechanism involves converting CoreETH into DeltaETH by burning Core and converting DeltaETH into native ETH by burning DELTA, creating a seamless and secure flow within the Core Delta Ecosystem Layer. This dual liquidity restaking token system enhances user flexibility, security, and overall value creation.
