Borrow

Summary

Boost paired with Borrow enables a powerful saving experience. When borrow is called, a new loan position is created by routing wrapped Bitcoin or wrapped Ether collateral to Compound, and using that USDC to mint TUSD which is delivered to end users. Alternatively, when a user calls repay, the position is unwound.

Torque Boost

TUSDEngine

The TUSDEngine is responsible for minting, burning, and liquidating positions related to Torque USD. Functions are called by users and related ecosystem contracts in a public fashion. It is mandated to maintain peg at $1.00 for mint and burn via Chainlink oracle. The price of Torque USD on secondary markets generally remains stable as liquidity is concentrated but may fluctuate depending on market conditions. Thus, in the event secondary markets experience a depeg event, users are incentivized to purchase it and redeem at the TUSDEngine for $1.00 of backing assets.
