Introduction

This Friday 9th April at midday UTC, yield.vote will launch its first pool, “Basic Pool”.

yield.vote is part of the finance.vote dApp suite, which is a decentralized application suite for the DAOs of the future. This dApp is a full stack liquidity mining solution and Basic Pool represents the start of a series of pool-releases over the coming months.

Basic Pool utilises a new cryptoeconomic primitive we call “MostBasicYield,” that is designed to allow cryptonetworks to incentivise their participants to take their tokens out of circulation by offering them yield on their network assets.

Introduction

yield.vote quietly launches this week with an incentivised test for members of the Ethereum-based finance.vote Citizens chamber.

We launch with “Basic Pool”, which utilises a contract we call “MostBasicYield.sol”.

We took some time to go back to the drawing board and add a new pool to our yield.vote dApp, we did this for a number of reasons:

  1. Our Harberger Tax oriented yield.vote LP pools (now called, Resident and Tycoon), boggled people’s minds. So we wanted the opposite, an ultra simple financial primitive, to counterbalance the more innovative Harberger Tax system. …

Introduction

In our opinion it’s probably wise to get familiar with the Cryptospace and start gaining some experience in it. That includes understanding how blockchain technology works, how DAOs function, how cryptocurrencies and NFTs work etc.

This is the way the world will work in the future and now is the time to start getting experience in working in crypto.

It’s still mega early, despite the high prices of the major cryptocurrencies recently. We’re only just getting started on building the infrastructure that will coordinate people as they work in digital and decentralised organisations.

That’s where finance.vote will come in.

We’re…


finance.vote is delighted to announce that Halborn has successfully completed a security audit of the yield.vote smart contract, finding zero contract vulnerabilities, which will open the door for a swift release of the finance.vote network’s liquidity mining programme.

Halborn is one of the most respected and up and coming cybersecurity firms in the cryptospace, who work across the whole cybersecurity stack, alongside their smart contract auditing function. They have an impressive track record working with the likes of Bancor, Coinbase, Stellar and Ava Labs.

Unlike many firms in the space, Halborn provides extremely detailed analysis of smart contracts, working closely…


We are thrilled to announce that finance.vote has integrated Chainlink as our go-to oracle solution for our prediction market dApp, markets.vote.

markets.vote is a quadratic voting-based prediction market that requires reliable and accurate price feeds at exactly midnight each week for at least ten different tokens to determine the weekly prediction market winners. The integration of Chainlink oracles marks a major upgrade to our prediction market, which will allow us to settle prices confidently with high fidelity.

Further to that, Chainlink will be integrated into finance.vote’s second layer governance tools, which means that FVT token holders can add new tokens…


Introduction

Here at finance.vote, we build unstoppable applications. That is, we use blockchain and other Web3 technologies to build applications that can live autonomously on the internet in a decentralised fashion. In this post we make the case for why more unstoppable applications are needed in the context of rising censorship and centralised intervention of the public discourse, especially in financial systems.

A new age of censorship

In recent months we’ve seen a new wave of censorship hitting the legacy web. There is real evidence that censorship is growing in scale and scope and it is most certainly something we should be increasingly vigilant of.

Abstract

Yield is a dApp that utilises radical cryptoeconomics to build a competitive yield environment, whereby liquidity providers hold “property” in the protocol and earn a “resident income”. LPs pay a Harberger Tax by burning a small fraction to their LP tokens and new users can obtain a staking slot by paying a higher tax than a current occupier.

Introduction

The DeFi space underwent rapid expansion in 2020 due to the introduction of a number of new decentralised financial primitives. One of the most important was liquidity mining.

Liquidity mining is the process of providing liquidity for a decentralised market and obtaining…


Introduction

finance.vote is the consensus layer for DeFi. We are building voting technologies that allow humans to plug into financial ecosystems. We specialise in price discovery, social coordination and governance design.

The Chambers are the start of our governance structures that we will build into an on-chain network of miniDAOs, that will be token specific, blockchain agnostic and powered by token weighted voting.

The Chambers are a place for collaborative research and development of the finance.vote network. The Chambers will include media and analytical functions for promoting the network and understanding the cryptospace as a whole.

Users will have access to…


Status Update

  • The successful auction of the $FVT token took place on the 18th November 2020.
  • 850 ETH was collected and paired with 19.6m $FVT to discover a listing price of $0.02, completely non-custodially. Forming the liquidity floor for the token.
  • The first alpha version of the vote markets have concluded. Users successfully predicted the $YFI token as the winner and 53 votes will share the 100,000 $FVT rewards pool.
  • This completes the launch phase of the finance.vote network, which has two functioning products auction.vote and the finance.vote vote markets.
  • Following network genesis, we now open up the Obelisk phase…

This week, finance.vote signalled a clear partnership with tidal.finance, a Polkadot based insurance marketplace platform that is designed to expand the insurance coverage of DeFi smart contracts and bring greater assurances to DeFi investors across the space.

This is very important work.

For DeFi, the security of smart contracts is paramount, and yet one of the most difficult things to provide solid assurances on. …
