Bulletin Board: February 27th


A lighter edition of the Bulletin Board today, wrapping up some of the key happenings from recent weeks.

1. sJOE

sJOE is the new Staking option on the Trader Joe platform, that provides users with yield in the form of a Stablecoin, USDC.

Yes that’s right, this is JOE in a Stable Basket.

Why Change xJOE to sJOE?

The transition to the sJOE Model will significantly improve User Experience (UX).

Stake JOE, get USDC, buy more JOE. Simple.

Lastly, why a Stablecoin instead of more JOE rewards?

There are two reasons for this:

  • Provide a versatile reward that facilitates further platform engagement
  • Visit the docs to learn more: sJOE Staking

We’ve seen some quick integrations from both Yield Yak and More Money. You can checkout the links to the tweet announcements below:

2. veJOE

Feeling bullish?

The veJOE wait is almost over! veJOE is Trader Joe’s brand new Staking option, rewarding veJOE stakers with Farm Boosts in the form of more JOE Rewards as well as voting power for future Governance. veJOE stakers will receive veJOE tokens at a fixed generation rate, capped at 100X their JOE staked, increasing their JOE yield farming rewards by up to +150% (2.5X). In the coming weeks we will share more information about the deployment of veJOE.

Will there be veJOE wars…

3. Rocket Joe
