What is sUSD?
What are synthetic assets?
Synthetic assets or Synths are derivatives that provide exposure to real-world assets on the Ethereum blockchain. Like derivatives in traditional financial markets, Synths allow users to hedge and reduce their risk, speculate on price movements, and gain access to unavailable assets or markets. This is all accomplished without an individual ever holding the underlying asset.
How can I obtain sUSD?
The amount of sUSD minted will depend on two factors: SNX staked and the collateralization ratio (C-Ratio) of the platform. Currently, the C-Ratio is 500%. This means that if the value of SNX or Synths fluctuates, the user’s C-Ratio will fluctuate as well.
Alternatively, users can also buy sUSD directly on Synthetix Exchange with ETH.
