Brief Research About Astrid DAO

AstridDAO is a decentralized money market with a fully backed stablecoin, $BAI, hard-pegged to the US Dollar. As a result, users of the dApp (decentralized application) can borrow $BAI at 0% interest and instantly redeem $BAI for their collateral at face value (i.e., 1 BAI for $1 of ASTR).

Additionally, users can become stability providers by adding $BAI to the stability pool and instantly liquidating under-collateralized accounts. These two mechanisms, i.e., borrowing at 0% interest. Against risk assets and instant liquidation of under-collateralized accounts, create a hard peg mechanism to the USD.

“We are super excited to join the Microsoft for Startups program! With incredible resources sponsored by Microsoft, we will ensure AstridDAO can better serve the community and facilitate BAI to become the dominant native stablecoin for the whole Astar and Polkadot ecosystem.” —AstridDAO Team

Furthermore, with Microsoft supporting AstridDAO, the decentralized money market protocol is officially backed by one of the most innovative and tech-driven companies in human history.
