Our initial goal is not to find a stable price. This may seem antithetical to our currency aspirations, but we ensure you it is not. BondToEarn can be tuned to optimize for different things. The main tradeoff is volatility and profitability versus stability and consistency. With volatility and profit comes growth; this is what we want early on.
With tight policy and scale, BondToEarn should function well as a stable asset. Upward and downward pressures should stabilize at some non-intrinsic value. With loose policy, regardless of scale, BondToEarn has the potential to act as a wealth creation machine. The market premium of the token measures the positive sum of the game; all extrinsic value is new wealth created.
The initial network features a one-way treasury (money goes in, none comes out), the bonding contract (through which supply increases and profits are produced i.e minting), and the staking contract (where profits are distributed).
The following are the initial policy states:
BCV - BCV varies based on mint types . It is tuned regularly by the Policy team to meet the protocol goals. For example, if the protocol wants to accumulate more liquidity into its treasury, it can lower the BCV for allowing users to mint BTE with LP to increase their bond capacity.
Bond vesting term - It is set to a fixed number BSC blocks or approximately five days for all Bond Asset types.
BTE distribution - Every time someone Bond BTE, the proceed will go to the BondToEarn Treasury. A corresponding amount of BTE will be minted and distributed to three parties:
Bonder - The Bonder will receive the quoted amount of BTE minted linearly over the vesting term.
DAO - The DAO receives the same amount of BTE as the bonder. This represents the DAO profit.
Stakers - After accounting for the BTE distributed to the bonder and the DAO, the rest will be distributed among all stakers in the protocol.
