Greetings from The Great Hummus!

It’s time to talk about a great recipe for a great dip.

The Great Recipe

Hummus Exchange has recently launched an exciting new volatile pool built with Balancer, featuring a one-of-a-kind liquidity bucket of top tokenized assets to deepen liquidity in the Metis ecosystem.

We call this The Quad Dip.

The Quad Dip (AKA, the Quad Pool) comes alongside the recent launch of Aave v3 on Metis, which has introduced borrowing and lending markets for assets like wETH, wBTC (and many more) to the Metis Ecosystem.

Together, AAVE and The Quad Pool enable the proven DeFi flywheel of combining an AMM with liquidity provisions and a lending protocol.

Or, to put it into the words of The Great Hummus himself, “Thus we present to you, a great recipe for a great dip!”

The Quad Pool

The Quad Pool is a volatile pool containing four high-demand assets evenly weighted at 25% each:

Wrapped Ether (WETH)
Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC)
Metis Token (METIS)

This unique combination of stablecoins and volatile assets like wETH and wBTC creates ample opportunities for trades, arbitrage, and liquidity mining across the Metis Ecosystem.

The Great Dip

With Aave v3 now live, lenders can supply wETH, take loans against their deposits, and use the funds to provide liquidity to the new Balancer pool on Hummus Exchange to capture yield boosting capital efficiency with a Flywheel strategy.

By integrating Balancer’s proven variable pools, Hummus Exchange helps The Metis Ecosystem gain battle-tested AMM logic to manage volatility and maximize returns.

How to Quad Dip

Users who are new to the Metis Ecosystem, easily bridge assets from like ETH by using a variety of fast and safe bridges such as the official Metis bridge, Stargate, or Synapse.

Then, simply head over to AAVE and Hummus Exchange to see what recipe is right for you!

Overall, the new volatile pool unlocks fresh opportunities for traders, liquidity providers, and lenders alike — showcasing Metis’ commitment to becoming a true DeFi hub.


Many do not know that The Great Hummus has been spending much of his time over the last several weeks eating a balanced diet and lifting a variety of weights in order to maintain a healthy and attractive figure. He could not have done this without some personal trainers and colleagues behind the scenes, and now that the metis ecosystem party is starting, he looks forward to showing off his new figure at his arrival in the coming days.

The Metis Ecosystem is growing, and as the premier Stableswap AMM, Hummus Exchange is an integral part of this sustained growth.

So with that said, keep your eyes peeled for little tweaks, requested features, and some new Hummus flavors.
