About the ALPACA token
Alpaca Token allows its holders and Governance Vault stakers to capture the economic benefits of the platform’s performance.
It’s a fair-launched (no presale, no pre-mine) token which allowed the community of investors to participate on even ground in bootstrapping the development of the Alpaca ecosystem. Protocol revenues are used to buy back the tokens from the market and burn them resulting in constant deflationary pressure on their price.
Locking ALPACA in the Governance Vault allows holders to acquire a share in the revenues of the protocol and participate in the governance process.
Alpaca Finance paid out over 3.3M USD value to its Governance Vault stakers in 2022 as dividends.
Listing ALPACA in Venus’ Isolated Markets will allow its holders to unlock the potential of their tokens by allowing to recognize them as collateral and borrow assets against them. Additionally, the lenders will have a chance to generate additional yield by supplying the tokens to venus Money Market.
Borrowers on the other side of the market will receive a chance to better manage exposure to ALPACA market price through hedging their long exposure, borrowing tokens for use in Governance Vault staking giving them access to revenue of the platform and governance process.
