TemplarDAO's Documentation

What is Templar?

​Templar is the first decentralized reserve currency protocol available on the Binance Smart Chain based on the TEM token. Each TEM token is backed by a basket of assets (e.g. BNB, BUSD, TEM-BUSD LP) in the Templar treasury, giving it an intrinsic value that it cannot fall below. Templar also introduces unique economic and game-theoretic dynamics into the market through staking and bonding.

What is the point of Templar?

Our goal is to build a policy-controlled currency system, in which the behavior of the TEM 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 TEM 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.
Without the use of fiat currencies, we intend to bring stability to the cryptocurrency economy through our protocol and granting everyone equal access by creating an inclusive platform for economic empowerment.

How do I participate in Templar?

There are two main strategies for market participants: staking and bonding. Stakers stake their TEM tokens in return for more TEM tokens, while bonders provide LP or BUSD tokens in exchange for discounted TEM tokens after a fixed vesting period.

How can I benefit from Templar?

The main benefit for stakers comes from supply growth. The protocol mints new TEM tokens from the treasury, the majority of which are distributed to the stakers. Thus, the gain for stakers will come from their auto-compounding balances, though price exposure remains an important consideration. That is, if the increase in token balance outpaces the potential drop in price (due to inflation), stakers would make a profit.
The main benefit for bonders comes from price consistency. Bonders commit a capital upfront and are promised a fixed return at a set point in time; that return is in TEM tokens and thus the bonder's profit would depend on TEM price when the bond (minted TEM) matures. Bonders benefit from a rising or static price for the TEM token!

Who created Templar?

Templar is a fork of Olympus on the Binance Smart Chain. Our team is mostly anonymous, born from the DeFi Community.

Who runs Templar?

No one. Templar is DAO-governed. All decisions are formed by community members on the forum and made by token holders through snapshot voting.
