🛤ī¸Super Layer

At the core of Superposition's architecture lies the Super Layer, a system that is more than the sum of it's parts. The Super Layer is the emergence of Super Assets, the Longtail Orderbook, Utility Mining and the core innovations of Superposition in a system. Here's an exploration into what the parts of the Super Layer do:

Super Assets:

Super Assets are like regular tokens, such as USDC or ETH, but they allow us to pay yield when you use the chain. They go beyond regular yield bearing tokens that pay yield when you hold on to them, Super Assets also pay you yield when you use them.

Functionality

  • Active Yield: Super Assets pay you yield for your action on-chain, for example sending a payment , purchasing an NFT or making a trade.

Any on-chain transaction qualifies for active yield.

  • Passive Yield: Super Assets can also pay you yield when you hold onto them, allowing for native on-chain yield.

Longtail - The Superbook:

Longtail in the cohesive liquidity element of the Super Layer that allows every app to chain share liquidity between themselves. The Superbook is an on chain order book that any developer on Super Position can connect to, giving them access to free liquidity.

Advantages

  • Capital Efficiency: By aggregating liquidity, the Longtail ensures that capital is not idly waiting but is always in a state of optimal deployment.

  • Market Accessibility: It democratizes the market by giving all participants, regardless of size, equal access to the pooled liquidity, ensuring fair and efficient market dynamics.

  • Bootstrapping: Developers have to now spend less time bootstrapping liquidity for an innovative app, it is available to them through the Superbook.

Utility Mining:

Utility mining is a novel distribution strategy, that allows the Superposition chan and dApp developers on the Superposition chain to distirbute yield and tokens to users of the chain and the dApps. Utility mining allows for aligned incentives.
