To the DeFi group,
This week, the group behind DeFi Pulse and Index Coop launched Kuiper, a DeFi protocol for index monitoring. Kuiper permits individuals to variously suggest, concern belongings into, rebalance and maintain tokens that function index baskets. The protocol additionally prioritizes DeFi ideas of being permissionless and credibly impartial, with the protocol solely permitting adjustments to 3 index parameters that may apply equally to all, to make sure no particular remedy.
Kuiper is a brand new permissionless index protocol that I had the pleasure to assist out with.
It includes a novel “bonded dutch public sale” mechanism:
– market makers compete for the fitting to rebalance
– complexity is pushed out of the protocol
good luck have enjoyable https://t.co/tzJmCYYUew
