Using v$ loans as discounts on ecosystem goods & services

Unlocking TLN Borrowing Capacity: Converting Rewards into Real-World Discounts with v$

The blockchain and cryptocurrency space is a hotbed of innovation, constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the world of finance and technology. One project that has been making waves is Tokenized Liquidity Notes (TLN) and its revolutionary feature that allows users to convert TLN received for staking Liquidity Tokens, into a unique voucher currency called v$. This novel concept bridges the gap between the digital and physical worlds, offering users a tangible benefit for their participation in the TLN protocol.

The TLN protocol smart contract is designed to reward liquidity providers generously. One of the ways it does so is by issuing TLN tokens in return for staking Liquidity Tokens. These TLN tokens can be thought of as a unit of borrowing capacity.

What is vUSD (v$)?

v$, is a voucher currency introduced within the VOW ecosystem. Unlike traditional cryptocurrencies or stablecoins, v$ are not intended to serve as a store of value or a medium of exchange outside of the VOW ecosystem. Instead, they holds a unique purpose – to be redeemed as discounts against goods and services at participating retailers within the VOW network.

How Do they Work?

Liquidity providers who earn TLN tokens in exchange for staking their liquidity tokens accumulate a borrowing capacity over time. This borrowing capacity can be thought of as a virtual wallet filled with TLN, which can be converted into v$ with the addition of the required 20% VOW token collateral. The more TLN tokens a liquidity provider has, the higher their borrowing capacity, and the more discounts they can enjoy at participating retailers.

Unlocking the Power of TLN

This innovative approach creates a win-win scenario for TLN liquidity providers. Not only do they benefit from the potential appreciation of VOW tokens over time, but they also gain access to real-world discounts through v$. It adds a practical and tangible dimension to liquidity provision.

The value of v$ lies in their usability, not as a speculative asset. By offering discounts at participating retailers, v$ transform TLN borrowing capacity into real-world purchasing power in the form of a discount. Users can experience the benefits of their participation in the TLN protocol immediately, whether they choose to enjoy discounted products, services, or even redeem vouchers for future use.

A New Kind of Digital Voucher

It's essential to emphasise that v$ and other vCurrencies in the VOW ecosystem are not traditional cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, fiat currencies, or any other type of backed currency. They are digital vouchers with a specific purpose – to enhance the user experience within the ecosystem and facility purchases. This unique approach underscores the innovative spirit of the VOW project and its commitment to providing practical value to its community.

The introduction of v$ within the TLN protocol represents a significant step towards bridging the gap between the digital and physical worlds in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space. It showcases the power of blockchain technology to create innovative solutions that benefit users in meaningful ways. Liquidity providers can now unlock additional benefits and enjoy real-world discounts, creating a more tangible connection between their digital assets and the physical world. This innovative approach demonstrates how blockchain projects can offer valuable experiences to their communities, setting a new standard for the industry.
