MELD Roadmap Update⏭ — 3
This article is the third MELD roadmap update.
The MELD token launched! 🥳️🎉
How to buy MELD!
A large part of the MELD equation is now behind us and we can begin looking forward to some new and innovative solutions coming to Cardano, DeFi, and the greater cryptocurrency ecosystem — ADAmatic
A technical report and update are currently being written by our Engineering team — And will provide further clarification towards the current state of ADAmatic and how far along we are in the roadmap towards launching!
Slight delays in private sale token distribution
As many of you are aware, there have been some issues and delays with the initial distribution of MELD tokens. We have been working tirelessly to individually handle all the unique cases.
As you can see, the MELDapp is built for operation and has a very basic UI/UX. We appreciate the feedback we have received on it so far, but ultimately, the most important part of the app is what is happening behind the scenes.
This app will be updated on a regular and frequent basis to begin revealing new features and access to the protocol!
MELD on Exchanges (Bitrue, FMFW.io, SundaeSwap)
As more centralized exchanges list Cardano Native Tokens like WorldMobile, we are continuing to work with them to achieve listings. Stay tuned for updates!
More decentralized exchanges are being built and you can expect even more options available there in the coming weeks and months.
MELD Protocol Fees, Variable Staking, Staking Voting and MELDed Fiat Design
You may have noticed on the MELDapp that there is an upcoming option for Variable Staking. This is an exciting part of the protocol that we will reveal soon. Until we do, you might be wondering what the advantages of the Locked Staking are and whether you should commit your well-earned $MELD to that kind of timeframe?
The answer is easy if you care about governance over the MELD protocol and want your voice to be heard in a relevant way when the MELD DAO and voting is live.
Those who participate in the locked staking will have some advantages here that we will share when we are closer to that portion of the launch!
There are some innovative economic structures that the MELD team is preparing to launch on the protocol. Ones that will be the core building blocks bringing MELD to the forefront of DeFi banking.
More announcements will come soon!
See below for a further breakdown of what's in store for the coming months for MELD:
Please note: The roadmap may be subject to change based on external factors we currently are unaware of
MELD — Be Your Own Bank
We think it is essential for everyone to gain control of their financial lives and have equal access to financial instruments used by professionals, not just centralized institutions, governments, or the 1%. We want to provide financial freedom and control to the masses, including the unbanked.
We have a long-term goal to enable the $15 trillion that is currently locked out of the global economy, including 2 billion individuals worldwide that are either underbanked or have no access to banking services whatsoever, to access these tools. These are the people that are paying the highest fees, getting the worst customer service, and they are the ones that are having the most problems.
Our vision is to create an ecosystem that empowers individuals to regain financial control by providing them with the tools and services they need to manage their money on their terms. Whether creating a collateralized debt position (CDP) with cryptocurrency, earning an interest return for lending fiat to borrowers, or even participating in reward incentive programs, we strive to provide our users with the functions they need to manage their own financial lives.
