Water Bucket on Contraction Periods

Water Bucket will not mint any LIT (NO REWARDS ON Water Bucket) while TWAP < 1.01
Debt Phase take place on the expansion epochs that start after a contraction period where there are still Lbonds to be redeemed.
65% of Expansion during Debt Phase is allocated to the Treasury Fund to prepare for the LBOND Redemption. This amount is still reserved whether or not LBOND holders are redeeming bonds or not.
Once LIT in treasury is sufficiently full to meet all circulating bond redemption, expansion rates will resume to normal.
LBOND emitted per epoch during contraction periods can be found on Regulations.

Shares Pools (Shares Reward) available for 12 months:
LBOND (bond tokens) are available for purchase when LIT falls below the 1 BUSD peg. If LIT's TWAP is between 1.00 and 1.01, neither LBOND nor LIT will be issued.
e.g. if LIT's TWAP < 1, exchange LIT for LBOND will be in a 1:1 ratio.
LBOND (bond tokens) are available for redemption when LIT goes above the 1 BUSD peg.
To encourage redemption of LBOND for LIT when LIT TWAP > 1.1 and incentivize users to redeem at a higher price, LBOND redemption will be more profitable with a higher LIT TWAP value, of which LBOND to LIT ratio will be 1:R, where R can be calculated in the formula as shown below:
