USDY and mUSD Conversion
What is the difference between USDY and mUSD?
USDY exists in two forms on Mantle. USDY is the accumulating form, and mUSD is the distributing form.
- USDY: an accumulating ERC-20 token with a redemption value that increases daily.
- mUSD: a distributing ERC-20 token pegged to $1. mUSD holders automatically receive their yield in their wallet via additional mUSD tokens.
Users receive the same amount of interest regardless of the token they hold.
Users can convert anytime from USDY to mUSD and from mUSD to USDY using the Ondo Token Converter.
