How to Mint USDB

This guide will show you how to mint USDB and create a stable-to-stable liquidity pool via the Co-Trader interface.

USDB, a stable token backed by BNT, can be used to create stable liquidity pools on https://bancor.cotrader.com/.

Stable:Stable pools (e.g., DAI:USDB or USDT:USDB) eliminate price movements in the pool’s assets, eliminating impermanent loss and maximizing the profitability of conversion fees.

In order to mint USDB, you will need to follow these 2 steps:

  1. Deposit BNT

  2. Mint USDB with the BNT you’ve deposited.

==

  1. Click on the USDB Quick Actions tab.

  2. Click “Unlock BNT”

  1. You will see a MetaMask window with a transaction to sign. This is an approve transaction to allow the contract to access the BNT in your wallet when (and only when) you execute a “borrow” transaction.

  1. Sign the transaction

Once the transaction is confirmed on the blockchain, the “Deposit” section will change.

  1. Enter the amount of BNT you would like to deposit
