5. What is the specific liquidation mechanism in the minting?

Firstly, MCR means the minimum collateral ratio.

When this drops below 150% the liquidation mechanism is triggered.

  • Example: User A mints kUSD with KALA at a collateral rate of not less than 150%. When the price of KALA falls, causing the MCR to go below 150%, the system allows other users to liquidate user A’s assets at a certain discount. The discount will depend on how far the MCR is below 150%.
  • Method: User B will exchange a certain amount of kUSD for the KALA pledged by User A at an agreed discount, so that User A’s collateral ratio will be restored to 150% or more.
  • Result: The kUSD used by User B for liquidation will be burned and a 1.5% commission will be charged.
