FiatDAO ($FDT) is a protocol which enables borrowing against fixed yield and using leverage to make yield more efficient and/or access liquidity. For some time now, a multitude of projects allowing fixed returns have been emerging.. (Barnbridge, Element, Notional, Pendle..).These projects allow you to lock tokens for a fixed period of time to earn a fixed return.
Contributors of Barnbridge protocol then had the idea to launch FiatDAO to allow users to take advantage of a leveraging system. The project is incubated by Barnbridge.
Let’s say I lock my tokens in one of the fixed yield protocols mentioned before. I can now use my proof of locked position as collateral and borrow liquidity while I'm still generating yield. These assets are called Zero-Coupon-Bonds (ZCB). FiatDAO allows to, in exchange for these ZCB, mint an ERC20 token called $FIAT which is intended to be stable. Beware, this is not a stable coin which is designed to be as close as possible to $1.
With Zeus as advisor, the project is closely related to Olympus, and guess what? The v2 bonds have just been released and are by definition usable in FiatDAO as collateral. A partnership proposal has just been accepted on the Olympus forum too.
The token is already available on Olympus pro. Contracts and dApp are being audited.
Oh, I almost forgot : sub $20M mcap.
