High Efficiency Mode
This page explains what is "High Efficiency mode" (E-mode)
The E-mode feature maximizes capital efficiency (LTV up to 97%) when collateral and borrowed assets have correlated prices. For example, DAI and USDC are stablecoins pegged to USD. These stablecoins are all within the same E-mode category.
Accordingly, a user supplying DAI in E-mode will have a higher collateralization power when borrowing ARTH.
Only assets of the same category (for example: stablecoins) can be borrowed in E-mode.
E-mode does not restrict the usage of other assets as collateral. Assets outside the E-mode category can still be supplied as collateral with normal LTV and liquidation parameters.
To enter E-mode from the dashboard, toggle to the dropdown menu under "Your Borrows” where you will find an “Enable E-mode” button. Initially, the button to enable E-mode will indicate that E-mode is “disabled.” Click “Enable E-mode" and follow the instructions in the pop-up. Once you have followed the instructions, you will have enhanced borrowing power (i.e., up to 97% LTV) within E-mode. You can only borrow assets within the same category of assets (for example, stablecoins).
To exit E-mode, select “Disable E-mode” from the dropdown under the “Your Borrows” section. Follow the instructions in the pop-up to exit E-mode.
When E-mode is enabled, you will have higher borrowing power over assets of the same E-mode category.
