Centrifuge Chain has a formalized governance system that is encoded on-chain utilizing the Substrate democracy pallet. This enables on-chain voting mechanisms for binding and transparent governance by Radial (RAD) token holders.
RAD holders can vote with their stake on referenda that are proposed by the Centrifuge community or the Centrifuge Chain Council; a body of 7 members elected by RAD holders. To make any change requires a stake-weighted majority approval by RAD holders.
RAD holders can propose and vote on changes such as runtime upgrades, distribution of treasury funds, chain parameters, and the governance system itself. …
Access to financing for any real-world asset today is restricted to a legacy and siloed process that is inaccessible to a majority of businesses.

Centrifuge Chain is optimized specifically for the transactions required by the Centrifuge protocol. This achieves a much more efficient execution of these transactions and allows for targeted use-cases like privacy-preserving NFTs. …

I want you to walk away from this post with a better understanding of why inflation — or rather, a growing money supply — is important in both traditional and token-based economies. To do that, we are going to answer the following:
