The End Of Ponzinomic Experiments & The Beginning Of Return On Equity
Tokenomics have changed greatly since DeFi first hit the public stage in early 2020. Ultimately the big differentiator between DeFi protocols that were successful versus ones that collapsed and were revealed to be Ponzis was the existence of a viable business model resulting in a steady income stream and ability to generate real returns, with profits distributed back to token holders in a self-sustainable model. Token holder rewards need to be genuine, in other words. Protocols that pay through inflation are merely robbing Peter to pay Paul. At best, their business models rely on a subsidy paid for by token holders through the resulting dilution and devaluation of their investments.
We have seen many experimental tokenomic models rise and fall in the intervening years, often at a fevered pace. Uniswap originally featured no token (the token still does nothing) and LPs received trading fees only. SushiSwap’s inflationary reward model became wildly popular and emulated in an effort to defray Impermanent Loss for LPs, but it has proven to cause immense downward price pressure. Curve followed and added utility for holders in the ability to direct the inflationary rewards towards particular liquidity pools when their tokens are locked. Velodrome (as a Solidly fork) has continued to iterate with the addition of anti-dilutionary vesting for tokens locked in fNFTs. The market is clear: the more utility you provide and profit you flow to token holders, the more successful your tokenomic model will be. It is our intent to create a hybrid tokenomic model that takes the most successful models on the market right now and combines them into a multi-tiered business model designed to protect token holders and flow profits from the protocol back to them without constant inflationary pressure diluting their token value.
The following will reveal the team Tetrad Protocol, their background, their vision of decentralized finance, and how token holders and the protocol will benefit.

Beginning as an small business owner out of college, he spent the last 5 years working in venture capital as a private equity associate. With the objective of providing start-ups the resources to incubate and access to raise money. Drawn to DeFi first as a yield farmer, the natural progression was to create a DeFi as a service protocol that provide solutions for liquidity providers.
