pTokens

Introduction

Each asset supported by the DeFiPIE Protocol is integrated through a pToken contract, which is an EIP-20 compliant representation of balances supplied to the protocol. By minting pTokens, users (1) earn interest through the pToken's exchange rate, which increases in value relative to the underlying asset, and (2) gain the ability to use pTokens as collateral.
pTokens are the primary means of interacting with the DeFiPIE Protocol; when a user mints, redeems, borrows, repays a borrow, liquidates a borrow, or transfers pTokens, he/she will do so using the pToken contract.
There are currently two types of pTokens: PErc20 and PEther. Though both types expose the EIP-20 interface, PErc20 wraps an underlying ERC-20 asset, while PEther simply wraps Ether itself. As such, the core functions which involve transferring an asset into the protocol have slightly different interfaces depending on the type, each of which is shown below.

How do pTokens earn interest?

Each pool has its own Deposit interest rate (APR). Interest isn't distributed; instead, simply by holding pTokens, you'll earn interest.
pTokens accumulates interest through their exchange rate β€” over time, each pToken becomes convertible into an increasing amount of it's underlying asset, even while the number of pTokens in your wallet stays the same.

Do I need to calculate the pToken exchange rate?

When a pool is launched, the pToken exchange rate (how much ETH one cETH is worth) begins at 0.020000 β€” and increases at a rate equal to the compounding pool interest rate. For example, after one year, the exchange rate might equal 0.021591.
Each user has the same pToken exchange rate; there’s nothing unique to your wallet that you have to worry about.

Can you walk me through an example?

Let’s say you deposit 1,000 DAI to the DeFiPIE protocol, when the exchange rate is 0.020070; you would receive 49,825.61 pDAI (1,000/0.020070).
A few months later, you decide it’s time to withdraw your DAI from the protocol; the exchange rate is now 0.021591:
    Your 49,825.61 cDAI is now equal to 1,075.78 DAI (49,825.61 * 0.021591)
    You could withdraw 1,075.78 DAI, which would redeem all 49,825.61 pDAI
    Or, you could withdraw a portion, such as your original 1,000 DAI, which would redeem 46,315.59 pDAI (keeping 3,510.01 pDAI in your wallet)

How do I view my pTokens?

Each pToken is visible on Etherscan, and you should be able to view them in the list of tokens associated with your address
You can add pToken by its address in any wallet (Metamask, Trust Wallet etc.) as a simple ERC-20 token.

Can I transfer pTokens?

Yes, but exercise caution! By transferring pTokens, you’re transferring your balance of the underlying asset inside the DeFiPIE protocol. If you send a pToken to your friend, your balance (viewable in the DeFiPIE Interface) will decline, and your friend will see their balance increase.
A pToken transfer will fail if the account has entered that pToken pool and the transfer would have put the account into a state of negative liquidity.

Mint

The mint function transfers an asset into the protocol, which begins accumulating interest based on the current Supply Rate for the asset. The user receives a quantity of pTokens equal to the underlying tokens deposited, divided by the current Exchange Rate.

PErc20

    msg.sender: The account which shall deposit the asset, and own the minted pTokens.
    mintAmount: The amount of the asset to be deposited, in units of the underlying asset.

Before depositing an asset, users must first approve the pToken to access their token balance.

Redeem

The redeem function converts a specified quantity of pTokens into the underlying asset, and returns them to the user. The amount of underlying tokens received is equal to the quantity of pTokens redeemed, multiplied by the current Exchange Rate. The amount redeemed must be less than the user's Account Liquidity and the pool's available liquidity.

The borrow function transfers an asset from the protocol to the user, and creates a borrow balance which begins accumulating interest based on the Borrow Rate for the asset. The amount borrowed must be less than the user's Account Liquidity and the pool's available liquidity.
To borrow Ether, the borrower must be 'payable' (solidity).

Transfer

Transfer is an ERC-20 method that allows accounts to send tokens to other Ethereum addresses. A pToken transfer will fail if the account has entered that pToken pool and the transfer would have put the account into a state of negative liquidity.

Liquidate Borrow

A user who has negative account liquidity is subject to liquidation by other users of the protocol to return his/her account liquidity back to positive (i.e. above the collateral requirement). When a liquidation occurs, a liquidator may repay some or all of an outstanding borrow on behalf of a borrower and in return receive a discounted amount of collateral held by the borrower; this discount is defined as the liquidation incentive.
A liquidator may close up to a certain fixed percentage (i.e. close factor) of any individual outstanding borrow of the underwater account. Liquidators must interact with each pToken contract in which they wish to repay a borrow and seize another asset as collateral. When collateral is seized, the liquidator is transferred pTokens, which they may redeem the same as if they had deposited the asset themselves. Users must approve each pToken contract before calling liquidate (i.e. on the borrowed asset which they are repaying), as they are transferring funds into the contract.

PErc20

1
function liquidateBorrow(address borrower, uint amount, address collateral) returns (uint)

    msg.sender: The account which shall liquidate the borrower by repaying their debt and seizing their collateral.

    pTokenCollateral: The address of the pToken currently held as collateral by a borrower, that the liquidator shall seize.
    RETURN: 0 on success, otherwise an Error code.
Before liquidating a loan, users must first approve the pToken to access their token balance.

    msg.value (payable): The amount of ether to be repaid and converted into collateral, in wei.
