Change Money, Change The World
The Standard DAO is the layer ZERO of stablecoins, aiming to mirror every fiat currency across all major blockchains.
Combining the best ideas from the first generation of stablecoins
Initial bonding curve to fund a strong protocol controlled value
Liquidity bonding incentives to have deep market liquidity
Private smart vaults to borrow money from yourself
to create the ultimate next-generation of decentralised stablecoins.
What is The Standard?
The Standard Protocol enables the creation of stablecoins. These stablecoins are digital assets that are backed by a basket of underlying assets that users lock up in smart vaults. This allows users to generate stable cryptocurrencies pegged to any fiat in the world by utilising asset-backed loans without intermediaries.
The Standard governance token (TST) holders are rewarded for governing the protocol by staking and or voting on TheStandard.io
The team behind the first bitcoin / commodities exchange developed in 2014 when there was only eight bitcoin exchanges in the world.
The Standard Token (TST) holders earn
- staking rewards derived from all stablecoins minted and the deployment of the PCV
- 50% discount on borrowing rates
- decreasing supply
- the option to purchase liquidated assets under spot.
The Decentralised Autonomous Organisation (DAO) is responsible for governing and growing the ecosystem by making key decisions using smart voting mechanisms, AI and prediction markets.
