Staking Examples:

For our example we will use 15% as the average interest rate for our platform.

  • Dave has $500,000 he wants to put to use.
  • He stakes his funds with Gold Standard DAO and the protocol looks for the best APY available for his USD investment.
  • Going by 15% as an yield %, we can see with the projections below that Dave will x2 his investment in only 5 years.
  • This is without the risk of major price swings of his asset, while keeping his investment liquid.
  • Gold Standard DAO then allows Dave to claim his earnings in gold.

Liquid Investment:

Because funds are staked in USD, users investments are most liquid. User investment can be easily converted into cash without having a significant impact on its value.

In addition to getting the best yield on your stable coins, the protocol has a unique feature which allows users to get a self-repaying loan up to 50% of the initial amount deposited. In other words, users get access to a flexible line of credit for their future yield without any risk of liquidation.


All shall prosper.
