Introduction to the Peerion Ecosystem
Peerion is a community driven initiative designed to empower and incentivize individuals to participate in securing and decentralizing the entirety of web 3.0, internet of blockchains.
The core focus of Peerion is to establish an ecosystem of cooperative DAOs, where each DAO governs its own validators for various PoS networks within the blockchain space.
Decentralized Finance (DeFi) has seen tremendous growth; Proof-of-Stake blockchains and validator networks are becoming the more widely accepted option compared to Proof-of-Work. These evolutions within the blockchain space are moving fast, and as a result, new problems have surfaced for the average network user.
- 1.POS/Validator networks favor the wealthy, and leave the majority of daily network users paying all of the fees.
- 2.The Ethereum network, host of most DeFi DApps, has become congested, making it inefficient to transact.
Peerion looks to solve these problems and realign incentives for network participants by implementing a network of autonomous pools, each with their own initiatives and governance, on an Ethereum layer 2 side-chain, enabling all levels of investors to contribute to the security and decentralization of Web 3.0.
Peerion is powered by:
- 1.DAOhaus – Governance
- 2.pNetwork – Interoperability
- 3.xDai Chain – Infrastructure
pNetwork will play a vital role in the Peerion ecosystem for handling cross chain asset and smart contract interactions. pNetwork makes it possible to take part in various staking initiatives on a number of different blockchain networks all from the xDai Chain. Learn more about pNetwork
xDai Chain is an Ethereum Layer 2 stable coin side-chain based on the DAI stable coin. Transactions on the xDai Chain are fast, secure, and cost a fraction of a cent. Learn more about xDai Chain With DAOhaus governance on xDai and pNetwork’s cross-chain solutions, Peerion Pools are multi-chain enabled and equipped with powerful toolsets on an easy-to-use interface, with nearly instant and free transactions.
Each pool in Peerion’s ecosystem will have its own validator initiatives and governance, essentially acting as individual sub-DAOs to the main Peerion DAO. Once a new sub-DAO pool is established, assets for that initiative can start being pooled in order to reach the requirement necessary for its validator.
Three important things to note:
- 1.Voting power is proportional to the amount one has staked in the pool.
- 2.Having separate governance systems for each pool, eliminates the friction between the different initiatives.
- 3.Each sub-DAO pool will have its own rules and structure.
The main objective of the Peerion DAO is to govern ION Token issuance, decide on future initiatives (sub-DAO pools) within the Peerion Ecosystem, and manage a shared treasury which secures the fees collected by Peerion. Governance within the Peerion DAO is powered by ION Tokens, which also enable proportional claim to the Peerion Treasury. ION Tokens can be earned through farming initiatives that are layered on top of Peerion Pools, and act as added incentive to participate in the ecosystem.
The ION Tokens collected via farming, can then be staked back into the Peerion DAO for governance power and treasury claim. The roles of Peerion DAO members include voting on future initiatives and improvements, dispute resolutions, and voting on the issuance of ION Tokens.
All protocol fees collected by Peerion are secured in the Peerion DAO Treasury Vault, which are then split proportionally based on ION Stake. The more ION staked, the more power in the Peerion DAO. The incentive model is designed to reward long-term participation in the Peerion ecosystem.
The Peerion DAO Treasury Vault holds the various fees collected by Peerion through all of its active roles in the ecosystem. Active Peerion participants gain exposure to these assets simply by staking their farmed ION back into the Peerion DAO.
Here is a high level overview of the entire process:
There is a max supply of 100M ION Tokens. Of the 100M, 20% of the supply goes to the Peerion Team and is locked for the next two years, 10% is dedicated to Peerion Partners and early supporters, and the remaining 70% is to be distributed to the public via farming, airdrops and grants. 70M is currently locked out of circulation in the Distro DAO, which can be found here: https://app.daohaus.club/dao/0x64/0x828c0b882554521c7ebd840ef6e3d6e29ff184b1/bank.
10 Million is going to be locked in a separate treasury to fund liquidity and partnership initiatives.
