Introducing the Radial Rewards Program for Asset Originators and Investors in Tinlake Pools

Centrifuge Tinlake is our protocol to bring real-world assets to DeFi. We want to reward asset originators and investors for becoming first adopters and bootstrapping the ecosystem with the token that will power the whole network: the Centrifuge Radial (RAD) token.

This is the second iteration of this program. The pilot deemed successful in bring Tinlake more investors. This time, we are opening to the public and incentivizing asset originators as well.

Learn more about the first RAD program in our retro summary on Discourse

The Radial Rewards Program is a token distribution mechanism to real users. We want to distribute the token to users who will power and use the platform: that’s why we are incentivizing asset originators, investors, and validators to hold our token and participate in the Centrifuge Network.

Who Are We Looking For?

Investors

Tinlake pools are now available for DeFi investors. Our Asset Originators usually ask for a minimum total commitment of $10,000. US investors must be accredited and KYC/AML will be conducted on all participants.

Asset Originators

We are seeking asset originators (AO) to deploy pools on Tinlake. The AO should be able to originate a diversified collateral pool totaling in a minimum of $250,000 to start spinning on Tinlake. We want to incentivize a broad range of companies to enter the Tinlake universe, including companies that extend finance for assets such as invoices, royalties, bill of ladings, purchase orders, and mortgages.

Radial Rewards

We are announcing a Radial Rewards Program to reward early Investors and Asset Originators with RAD for locking DAI and assets into the Tinlake protocol. The earliest participants will receive the highest rewards, with a Dapp available to claim rewards on-chain. DAI and assets must be locked for a minimum of 60 days in order to participate in the RAD Reward Program. The first DAI locked for the minimum 60 day period will receive around 0.25 RAD, while the first DAI of asset value locked will receive around 0.1 RAD. Rewards will follow a declining curve that is subject to Chain Council review after 60 days from the first DAI invested in this rewards program [edit: the first DAI has been invested on October 16, 2020]. Furthermore, as RAD token holders you can put your RAD to work by staking towards Validators to help secure Centrifuge Chain, as well as participating in on-chain governance for future chain upgrades.

Centrifuge Protocol Insights

Centrifuge Chain allows businesses to convert real-world assets (RWA) into Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). This enables asset originators to put up these NFTs as collateral in Tinlake pools on Ethereum. Centrifuge Chain is an open source PoS blockchain built for finance and powered by the Radial (RAD) token. Tinlake taps into the Centrifuge ecosystem, including the Centrifuge Chain and a P2P messaging protocol, to bring DeFi to a consumer-ready interface.

Centrifuge operates on three key layers:

  1. A P2P messaging protocol, used to exchange information between investors, asset originators, data providers and others in a private, decentralized and trustless way;

Tinlake creates pools of assets, allowing investors to diversify risk across many different asset originators. Each Tinlake Pool is grouped by asset class and risk profile for consistency across the portfolio. Tinlake mints two different tokens, the DROP token represents the senior tranche, it has a fixed interest rate and is protected from defaults by TIN token (the junior tranche). Asset Originators will ‘put skin in the game’ by allocating to TIN making the DROP token a safer and more stable asset for investors to invest in. Read more on how exactly our two tokens work in our recent post.
