GM World!

We’re excited to announce the rebrand of Tempus as we move beyond fixed income and expand into multiple product lines. Check out our new website here.

In this post, you’ll find the reasons behind the rebranding, our vision for the community, our new roadmap, and the new role of TEMP as the governance and value-accruing token of the DAO.

Lots of alpha to share. Let’s jump right in!

Shaping the Future of DeFi

We launched Tempus as a fixed income protocol, bringing a novel way for users to convert variable yields into fixed yields in a capital efficient and low risk way. However, we found that at the moment there is a lack of product-market fit in this market, so we have decided to build beyond that!

Tempus aims to be the top product developer in the DeFi space. We want to build the most important blocks of DeFi and Web3 in a way that’s scalable and accessible to all.

In pursuit of this aim, we are busy building a ground-breaking money market on StarkNet where users will be able to lend and borrow at both fixed and variable rates, and take advantage of other unique features.

We’ll have more details for you soon. Stay tuned!

One Token, Multiple Products

We present to you the powered up TEMP token.

TEMP token holders benefit by governing the DAO and capturing value from all products built by Tempus, including early access to any new products and their tokens.

TEMP holders can submit governance proposals and vote to decide the future of the DAO. The DAO also elects the service contractor (currently Tempus Labs) to lead product development. Tempus Labs is a global team of experienced finance and tech professionals who are passionate about all things crypto.

Our Vision for the Tempus Community

DeFi began as an open playground where individuals came together to work and improve their access to financial services.

But somewhere along the way, the promise of an inclusive community was lost. Until now.

Our vision is to build the best financial products with the support of our decentralized community known as Builders, Creators and Connectors.

Introducing the Builders, Creators and Connectors

Let’s meet them.

Builders are super coders who love solving problems. They contribute by coding ideas of all shapes and sizes and bringing them to market with the support of the community.

Creators make the builders’ ideas come to life by translating code into culture. They wrap our products and present them to the world in a way that resonates with our users.

Connectors use their business skills to put the right products in front of the right eyes. They break the language barriers between DeFi and the real world.

Meet the New Tempus

Our new logo captures the vision of Tempus shaping the future of DeFi.

The blocks represent the collaboration of the decentralized community of Builders, Creators and Connectors working together to turn ideas into products. Blocks are also gamifiable and represent our values of transparency, trust and pioneering.

The logo has been designed with all the team involved so it resonates with the Tempus culture.

The Steps Ahead

Last but not least, we wanted to share a sneak peak of some of the exciting things we have coming up in the future. Here’s our updated roadmap:
