2023-December Centrifuge Monthly Summary :snowflake:

Welcome to our monthly summary of news, events and governance updates from the Centrifuge DAO for December and a Happy New Year! :clinking_glasses:

Centrifuge closes out 2023 with new announcements, milestones and momentum, but there is no time to stand still! We as a DAO are already looking ahead to keep building Centrifuge, forge new partnerships and expand the Real-World Asset Summit in 2024! More exciting news can be found in this newsletter!

Key Metrics

  • Total Value Locked (12/31/23): $255.734M (MakerDAO: $143M; RWA Market: $3.8M)
  • Total Active Loans: $252M
  • Total Assets Originated: $495M
  • Originated in December: $9M
  • Token Holders: 49,265 Wallets


The Ecosystem is focused on educating the world about Centrifuge, creating visibility and opportunity for RWAs, and sharing the narrative of how the world’s credit will be financed through DeFi.

December highlights include:


The Community is represented primarily by individuals and organizations that are actively participating in governance, contributing to processes and discourse, and are economically tied to the success of Centrifuge.

  • Centrifuge Milestones Part II: It’s time to look back to all the great achievements in the last year where a lot of groundbreaking progress was made. The RWA narrative is extremely strong and there is also a strong demand for US Treasuries in Anemoy’s Liquid Treasury Fund.
  • 2023 has been a great year for RWA adoption and for Centrifuge with a Total Value Locked (TVL) of $255M and $500+ million in total assets financed. Let’s close the year and head into 2024 with some big announcements.
  • Bhaji gives some (of the many) highlights from 2023 and announces that Centrifuge is expanding the Real-World Asset Summit globally, in addition to the flagship event in New York. City. :heart:
  • The FraxDAO voted in favor of a proposal to onboard $20M of collateral into the Anemoy Liquid treasury! With this investment into treasury bills through Centrifuge Prime, the FraxDAO will create a new pipeline of resources for the protocol.
  • Another proposal from the GnosisDAO to onboard in Centrifuge prime is still in progress, but it shows the growing interest for DAOs to engage with RWA investments and diversified sources of credit via Centrifuge Prime.
  • The Centrifuge Time capsule collected some past “predictions’’ for 2023 made by our community. Who can find the real Nostradamus in the gallery?

  • Let’s start the governance section with a Status Q4, provided by the GCG.

To highlight the most important passed proposals: unclaimed Tinlake rewards, Updating Transaction fees for pools and updating Block rewards.
  • The last Centrifuge governance call of the year, a Christmas edition, covered the Web3 foundation & Centrifuge, an update on Protocol fees and unclaimed Tinlake rewards plus the next steps the transition to OpenGov.
  • As a follow up on the three established Levels of Agreement in the founding documents for the Centrifuge DAO Kate opens a discussion to review and reflect this decision and proposes to segment the contributors by having two levels into “Active” and “Inactive”. As well she mentions a potential new role of an Opportunity Master.

:exclamation::exclamation:Please actively participate in the governance process, leave your comments and remarks in the RFCs and vote on open proposals​:exclamation::exclamation: :ballot_box::writing_hand:

  • In addition to the POP-submission for New Silver NS3 Cynthia Zhang from the Credit Group published a POP-report with an overview, the strengths and weaknesses of the proposed pool.

Protocol :cyclone:
