Introducing Weekly Staking Rewards to Empower Builders and Traders

Dear Antimatter Community,

Today, we’re excited to offer you an exclusive preview of two significant developments that are poised to bring new dimensions to our ecosystem. In this article, we’ll delve into the forthcoming Weekly Staking Rewards mechanism and introduce you to the mUSD stablecoin, both of which are set to play integral roles in reshaping the landscape of decentralized finance.

Builders and Traders: A Collaborative Approach

Introducing mUSD: Stability Amidst Market Fluctuations

We’re also pleased to introduce mUSD, a stablecoin designed to provide stability in the midst of the volatile cryptocurrency markets. Anchored by its value, mUSD serves as a dependable asset for traders seeking stability in their portfolios.

Synthetic asset protocols introduce us to two key player groups: the risk-taking “builders” and the strategic “traders.” Builders stake their collateral tokens to mint mUSD, carrying the potential risk of losses. Traders, meanwhile, enter the markets, swapping mUSD for various synthetic assets in their pursuit of gains.

Recognizing the unique roles and challenges of these groups, we’re introducing an incentive model aimed at fostering collaboration and shared success.

Introducing the Weekly Staking Rewards Mechanism

Central to this endeavor is the Weekly Staking Rewards mechanism, which acknowledges and rewards builders in a meaningful manner. This mechanism is structured on two primary principles:

  1. Structured MATTER Rewards: Builders can anticipate consistent rewards through a pre-defined schedule, denominated in MATTER tokens, our native currency. This approach ensures that your commitment to minting mUSD is recognized with reliable and steady rewards.
  2. Redistribution of Trading Fees: Sustainability is a cornerstone of our philosophy. We’re directing a portion of the trading fees collected over the past week back to our builders. Converted into mUSD tokens, these fees underscore the essential role you play in maintaining the protocol’s stability.

Expanding the Antimatter Ecosystem: Five New DApps

As part of our ongoing commitment to innovation, we will reveal new DApps that are part of this ecosystem! We will also rework existing Antimatter DApps to fit our new approach.

Get ready for tools built for liquidations, exchange, staking and more!

Antimatter: Building Together

Our vision is one of a balanced ecosystem, where builders and traders collaborate to drive innovation and growth. While traders navigate the markets, builders are rewarded, setting the stage for collective success.

The Weekly Staking Rewards mechanism and the introduction of mUSD exemplify our commitment to driving progress and inclusivity within the decentralized finance space.

Stay tuned for the full unveiling as we continue to pave the way for the future of synthetic assets and stablecoins.

Accompany us on our journey, we keep building!
