What Is Badger DAO (BADGER)?
Badger DAO is an open-source, decentralized automated organization that is dedicated to building products and infrastructure of simplifying the use of Bitcoin (BTC) as collateral across many smart contract platforms.
The platform is a shared space where the developers, known as Badge Builders, have the ability to collaborate and implement Bitcoin as collateral to as many blockchains as possible. A developer can earn a percentage of the fees and BADGER tokens from the developer mining pool for every implementation. The mainnet was launched on December 3, 2020.
A builder can be a single developer, a group of developers, or even a company. There are no fixed obligations to participation requirements, and anyone can create. The pillars of Badger DAO include the Badger Builders, the community-created products, the Dedicated Badger Operations team, the fairly initial distribution of the BADGER tokens for governance and the fact that all of the code is open-sourced.
Who Are the Founders of Badger DAO?
The founder of Badger DAO is Chris Spadafora. He is a long-term crypto enthusiast, investor, and partner at Angelrock.
What Makes Badger DAO Unique?
Badger DAO has two main products: Sett and DIGG. Badger DAO is a community-driven project; as such, before any products are developed they first need to be pitched to, voted on and approved by token holders.
Sett is a decentralized finance (DeFi) aggregator that has flash loan mitigation measures focused on tokenized BTC through five strategies. Once a user makes a deposit, they can earn a yield as the protocol’s smart contract does the work.
In order to incentivize this participation, farmers that deposit tokenized BTC into the Sett vault earn BADGER and DIGG. Aside from a 0.5% fee, an additional 4.5% is deducted from the profits to cover gas and transaction costs.
DIGG is a non-custodial synthetic Bitcoin on Ethereum’s blockchain that is pegged to the price of BTC with a flexible supply and a re-base function. Its main goal is to remove centralized third parties.
