finance.vote: Q2 Review

Introduction

There’s never a dull day in crypto and this last quarter has been a tumultuous one across the whole cryptospace. For now at least, the bull run is on pause and we’re in a period of consolidation in the markets.

This phase of the market is going to flush out a lot of the dead weight and in this update I want to provide some assurances that we’re well positioned to both withstand the tough market conditions but also thrive in an environment where the going gets tough.

Market up, or market down we’re going to…


We’re absolutely thrilled that iTrust.finance, the risk-managed staking protocol within DeFi insurance, have launched their Blue Lagoon Partner Pool - making them our first strategic partner to integrate the yield.vote dApp.

The BLPP is a single-sided $ITG-only staking pool, which contains a number of benefits:

  • No impermanent loss, due to the pool being $ITG only
  • 50% Starting APY (Actual yield 24.931% after 6 months)
  • Bonus share of 500,000 $FVT distributed among stakers

The pool closes on 24/12/2021 — so if you leave your tokens in the pool for the full 6 months, you will realise a yield of 24.931%. …


finance.vote announces strategic partnership and dApp integration with innovative DeFi insurance yield aggregator iTrust.finance

We’re delighted to announce our strategic partnership with iTrust.finance - the friction reducing, yield enhancing, capital allocation provider within DeFi insurance.

Through this collaborative partnership iTrust.finance will integrate our suite of dApps to fast-track their path to decentralisation, and to receive the toolbox required to establish a decentralised consensus layer for their DAO governance.

Commenting on the partnership, finance.vote’s founder and protocol leader, Dr. Nick Almond stated, “We couldn’t be happier to be working with a project as committed to innovation, disruption and, most importantly, furthering the agenda of decentralisation as iTrust.finance. Their DAO’s three primary focuses of efficiency, increased…


We are excited to announce that finance.vote has integrated Chainlink Keepers live on the Ethereum mainnet. This integration supports our previously announced integration of Chainlink Price Feeds by creating a fully automated and decentralised process for settling financial prediction markets on the markets.vote dApp.

Each markets.vote prediction market starts at midnight UTC and ends exactly one week later at the same time. Right when one ends, a new one begins. These prediction markets allow users to stake tokens and then vote on which coin out of a curated list of ten will grow the most in terms of price percentage…


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. …
