Using Compound v3

Learn about the specific functions and features for Compound v3

Market Selection

You will find a button that allows you to switch between v3 Compound markets. On Compound v3, the market determines which asset can be borrowed.

Lender or Borrower

Compound v3 markets will only allow you to lend or borrow, but you will not be able to to both.

Interest earning are only available to the Base Asset

Compound v3 markets do not generate interest on collateral, instead only supplying the base asset generates interest in-kind. For example USDC can be supplied and earns interest in the USDC Market, ETH can be supplied in the ETH Market and earns interest in ETH, etc.

Remember you can always create another DSA Account associated to your same address, so you can use the additional Compound account and have one dedicated as borrowing and one as lender.

On Compound v3 the debt is always in the base asset. Here are descriptions of the flashloan powered strategies:

Leverage: This will borrow the base asset and resupply with the selected collateral, creating a leverage.

Collateral Swap: This strategy swaps the underlying collateral in the position for another asset. This allows you to swap assets within your Compound position.

Other notes on Compound v3:

  • Remember collateral assets supplied do not gain interest at any time. If you are not borrowing against your collateral assets they are simply sitting in the Compound protocol.

  • When you are liquidated on Compound v3 your entire position will be returned to you in USDC, you will get the earn rate for USDC but all supplied collateral will be sold to USDC.

  • Instadapp team plans to continue to innovate on Compound v3!
