Name of Project:
Manta Ray Finance
Proposal in one sentence:
Manta Ray Finance will be a decentralized platform that allows users to earn rewards for holding MRF tokens, which will be backed by Ocean token.
Description of the project and what problem is it solving:
Manta Ray Finance will serve as the backbone of the growing Ocean ecosystem. The project aims to bring liquidity and new use cases for the Ocean token.
This platform relies on you, on people who are engaged in the Ocean Ecosystem and are Ocean holders. Together we can bring more value to this ecosystem and help it grow!
MRF (Manta Ray Finance token) will be backed by Ocean token, creating a stable, reliable, and valuable investment opportunity for Ocean holders. Platform users will be able to get rewards by helping the platform maintain the peg and by staking tokens.
If the platform succeeds to maintain the peg this will drive a huge value towards the Ocean ecosystem by creating a mirrored liquid asset that is benefiting from the Ocean token. In the short term, the project will have a very attractive APR for token holders, in the long term MRF is going to be a stable pair.
The scope may evolve significantly based on OceanDAO core / OPF planning in the next couple weeks. But the core goals remain: 'to serve as a backbone of the growing Ocean ecosystem, and bringing liquidity and new use cases to the Ocean token.
