Learn how to use Grand Base protocol

Grand Base is a DeFi protocol that enables users to create, trade, and bet on gAssets, which are synthetic tokens reflecting the value of real assets. Here's a complete guide to using the Grand Base protocol:

  1. Mint a gAsset:

  • Connect to the Grand Base platform with your wallet.

  • Select "Mint" from the menu.

  • Choose the real world asset you wish to reflect as a gAsset.

  • Deposit the collateral required (usually in USDC) to mint the gAsset. The collateralization ratio must be maintained to avoid liquidation.

  • Confirm the transaction and receive the minted gAsset in your wallet.

  1. Trade gAssets

  • Access the "Trade" tab on the platform.

  • Select the gAsset you wish to swap.

  • Enter the amount and confirm the transaction.

  • Once the transaction has been confirmed, the assets exchanged will be updated in your portfolio.

gAssests will be traded via a DEX

  1. Burn a gAsset:

  • If you wish to convert your gAsset into collateral, access the "Burn" option in the menu.

  • Select the gAsset you wish to burn and enter the amount.

  • Confirm the transaction, the gAsset will be burned and the corresponding collateral will be released and returned to your portfolio if the conditions are fulfilled

  1. Managing collateral:

To avoid liquidation, it is essential to maintain the collateralization ratio. You can add or remove collateral for a minted gAsset by accessing the "Manage Collateral" option. If the collateralization ratio falls below the minimum threshold, your position may be liquidated.
