What is Snowbank DAO?
Snowbank DAO is the decentralized reserve currency protocol available on the Avalanche Network based on the SB token. Each SB token is backed by a basket of assets (e.g., MIM, SB-AVAX LP Tokens etc etc) in the Snowbank DAO treasury, giving it an intrinsic value that it cannot fall below. Snowbank DAO also introduces economic and game-theoretic dynamics into the market through staking and minting.
Our goal is to build a policy-controlled currency system, native on the AVAX network, in which the behavior of the SB 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 SB can function as a global unit-of-account and medium-of-exchange currency. In the short term, we intend to optimize the system for growth and wealth creation.
We intend to achieve price flatness for a representative basket of goods without the use of fiat currency, in order to allow the cryptocurrency industry to detach once and for all from the traditional finance world!
