Several weeks ago finance.vote made their first venture into the world of the multi-chain blockchain — our first destination was the Binance Smart Chain.

It worked fantastically for about 2 weeks and then things started to go wrong.

This article is an update for our users who are waiting for functionality for our BSC Vote Markets.

What are Vote Markets?

A Vote Market is a prediction market that works on quadratic voting. Rather than a standard over-under style prediction market system, our vote markets allow users to spend a budget of voice credits that are assigned to their Decentralised Identity Tokens.

This allows users…

Introduction

Resident Pool is a new kind of liquidity mining.

As a user you will gain access to network emission by holding a protocol property.

Protocol property is a slot in a smart contract that provides you access to the liquidity incentive token inventory of the finance.vote protocol.

Resident Pool uses ‘Harberger Taxes’ to broker ownership of these slots in an on-going manner.

What are Harberger Taxes?

Harberger Taxes are a proposed economic paradigm for improving the allocation efficiency of land by allowing a purchaser to be able to buy any property they like, at any time.

The idea, proposed by Glen Weyl and Eric…


We’ve just rounded out the first quarter of the year and I thought it time to give you all a detailed update of (almost) everything that’s happened since the start of the year and finish up with where we’re going next.

TL;DR warning: there’s quite a bit of reading and founder musings here. I started writing this without much desire to reign in my word count, so be warned. There’s a section at the end for those that are attention deficient. You’ll find it easy enough. Go now, and save your ape time for something more apey.

It’s been an…


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.

The First Pool

The first pool will utilise the…


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.
