These investors from the global crypto and traditional finance community will join Duet protocol alongside to build the parallel financial universe.
According to Tomomi, one of the core contributors for Duet Protocol,
“ Duet team is delighted to see the vast interest from the investors worldwide. The vision of Duet Protocol is to build an on-chain parallel space, with global partners and contributors, governed by DAO that enables the on-off ramp of Flat Assets (Traditional Assets) and Sharp Assets (Crypto Assets). ”
Aim of this fundraise
In Duet synthetic methodology, the asset accessibility and trading usability are redefined. DUET will reform the price of financial assets in an unprecedented way. Its algorithmic pegging assets will redefine the “invisible hand”, and with over-collateralization, more assets can be leveraged and provide liquidity for trading markets.
The raised capital will help the project to expand the R&D of product and research activities. Duet protocol joined hands with LD Capital is going to sponsor a research institute called Muse Museum and also an R&D team led by Dr. Yuyi Wang, an expert of algorithmic game theory and distributed computing systems, who is also affiliated with ETH Zurich, Switzerland, as a research fellow.
The road ahead
More upcoming activities are aiming to attract global participants to join the Duet community and pave the path for decentralized finance. Duet’s vision is to build an on-chain parallel financial world governed by DAO that allows users to create & allocate capital to ANY assets. We are looking forward to having more global partners who share the same value join us together in building up this censorship-free, trustless, and transparent synthetic asset platform.
Duet is the world’s first multi-chain synthetic asset protocol with a hybrid mechanism (over-collateralization + algorithm-pegged) that “sharpens” all assets to be traded on the blockchain. Duet protocol will allow traders to replicate the real-world tradable assets in a decentralized finance ecosystem
Open and Multi-chain
Duet Protocol aims to leverage the global cryptocurrency market potential. In contrast to Terra & Mirror and ETH & Synthetix model, Duet is a multi-chain protocol that is more open, from both technology and ecosystem standpoints
Accept more high-quality assets such as BTC, ETH, USDT, including assets unique to the DeFi world (cToken, LP token, NFT), as collateral, and reach a broader scale of underlying assets. Duet accepts competitors’ token as collateral for dAsset minting, optimizing DeFi composability
Accept interest-bearing assets such as yToken or wrapped POS Token, which offer a basic return. The user‘s collateral will be sent to the corresponding governance/yield staking contract to earn interest.
Duet protocol provides dual pipelines for synthetic dAsset supply. In addition to over-collateralization, dAsset could directly mint from DUET. To issue dAssets, equivalent DUET will be burned
DUET can be deposited as collateral to mint dAsset and as a conditioner of liquidation limit for users’ CDP. In the Duet dAsset mining module, users can deposit dual assets (any acceptable collateral token and DUET). DUET value could decrease the CDP liquidation limit (approaching 100% with infinity DUET staking) to raise capital efficiency. In instant minter, DUET acts as a medium of exchange between native tokens and dAssets.
Duet is governed by DAO, the Duet token holders will be able to vote using Duet Protocol’s on-chain governance system. There are two major types of votes: Collateral Polls and dAssets Votes. We will improve the DAO governance through schemes such as quadratic voting and grants.
