The goal of aUSD Seed (aSEED) is to provide a pathforward for aUSD with options to exit existing aUSD holdings/vaults or to participate in Acala’s future growth.

The following documentation outlines the intended features and processes that Acala Exodus Upgrade intends to implement in the future. This document will continue to be updated and reviewed as we progress with the Exodus Upgrade. Please note that certain sections may contain inaccuracies or outdated information.

aUSD Conversion

aUSD will be converted to aSEED 1:1 across all avenues including account balance, and liquidity pools etc. This means current aUSD holders will hold aSEED instead, and aUSD LPs will be converted to aSEED LPs.

Preparation: prior to aUSD to aSEED conversion, set Honzon risk parameters to stop minting, liquidation etc.

aUSD (Karura) will be converted to aSEED (Karura), aUSD (Acala) will be converted to aSEED (Acala).

aUSD Conversion Date

aUSD Conversion is targeted to be on July 20 (exact block TBD) provided that the community vote is passed and on-chain changes are executed. From this date, aUSD will become aSEED (aUSD Seed).

The on-chain assetRegistry will be updated with the new symbol (aSEED) and name (aUSD SEED).

If you are a holder of aUSD, then you do not need to take any action.

If you are a vault owner, you can continue to manage your vaults after this date till CDP Conversion date.

If you are a builder of a tool that consumes @acala-network/api then there should be no real changes to be made in your application. However if your application displays the token symbol and token name in an offchain way, then you will need to ensure you display the correct symbol and name.
