TrueFi v2 Specs

TrueFi v2 is a series of upgrades to the original TrueFi specification. These upgrades improve and overhaul the TrueFi lending product, and focus on value accrual, decentralization, and automation. As the TrueFi roadmap is developed, upgrades will be made in phases synchronized with unlocked tokens entering circulation.

Finalized changes entailed in the TrueFi v2 spec will be presented to the community for review & snapshot signaling prior to implementation.

For an overview, please see: https://github.com/trusttoken/truefi-spec/blob/v2/truefi-v2.md

Business Development


We are working to increase the utility of TFI-LP tokens and ensure TrueFi users have optionality when deciding on how they want to unlock the value of their TFI-LP tokens. If you are also a CREAM token holder, please consider supporting the linked proposal above.


$TRU was included in the launch of Sushiswap’s Onsen incentive program

SushiSwap TRU/ETH liquidity providers can now stake their SLP tokens and receive $SUSHI rewards. We are in contact with the SushiSwap team and will look to offer $TRU incentives for liquidity providers on top of the trading fees and $SUSHI rewards they are already receiving.


We are also exploring the possibility of a TFI-LP metapool on Curve.fi. An incentivized pool on Curve would increase the liquidity of TFI-LP tokens significantly as liquidity providers to this new pool would be earning CRV rewards, trading fees, and the underlying interest from holding TFI-LP tokens. Additional $TRU rewards could be allocated to this pool as well.


Huge shoutout to community member, spidey, who got TRU added to $DODO’s default list 


Since the last issue of the TrueFi newsletter, various team members and borrowers have put forth governance proposals in the TrueFi discourse forums.

Three of these proposed changes are now official snapshot proposals. Please review them here and vote.

Expedited TIP - TRU Staking

Changing Loan Origination Fee

Lowering Minimum Loan Amount

Note that Snapshot enables off-chain voting so this will NOT incur any additional gas costs. You just have to sign a meta-transaction.

FTX Exchange Listing

On January 14, 2020, we were very pleased to see that FTX decided to list TRU markets including:

  1. TRU/USD spot

  2. TRU/USDT spot


  4. TRU quarterly futures (TRU-0326)

FTX’s sister companyAlameda is an active borrower from the TrueFi protocol and we look forward to continued collaboration with their teams.
