VNTR DAOs Documentation

What is VNTR DAO?

VNTR is the first decentralized investment protocol available on Arbitrum. Each VNTR token is backed by a basket of assets (e.g. ETH, USDC, VNTR-WETH LP) in the VNTR treasury, giving it an intrinsic value that it cannot fall below. VNTR also introduces unique economic and game-theoretic dynamics into the market through staking and bonding. Growing the treasury so as to be able to increase dividend payouts to stakers is a key part of VNTR's long-term strategy, so VNTR is essentialy a kind of crypto hedge fund. The only way new VNTR can be minted currently is through bonding. Bonds are controlled by algorithms which incentivize or disincentivize bonding in the best interests of the treasury and, by extension, the project's stakers.

What is the point of VNTR?

Our goal is to build a decentralized venture capital DAO with a focus on community-based treasury management, in which the behavior of the VNTR token is controlled at a high level by the DAO. In the long term, we believe this system can be used to optimize for stability and consistency so that VNTR can function as a decentralized investment firm. In the short term, we intend to optimize the system for growth and wealth creation.

How do I participate in VNTR?

There are two main strategies for market participants: staking and bonding. Stakers stake their VNTR tokens in return for more VNTR tokens, while bonders provide LP or USDC tokens in exchange for discounted VNTR tokens after a fixed vesting period.

We hear you! Take part in our protocol through the DAO. Governance participants can get involved on our community telegram or discord.

How can I benefit from VNTR?

The main benefit for stakers comes from dividends paid out in our interest-bearing treasury token VNTR, though price exposure remains an important consideration.

The main benefit for bonders comes from price consistency. Bonders commit a capital upfront and are promised a fixed return at a set point in time; that return is in VNTR tokens and thus the bonder's profit would depend on VNTR price when the bond (minted VNTR) matures. Bonders benefit from a rising or static price for the VNTR token!

Who runs VNTR?

No one. VNTR is DAO-governed. All decisions are formed by community members on the forum and made by token holders through snapshot voting.
