VeleroDAO Teams up With Velas and Joins the Velas Grants Program

VeleroDAO has been integrated into the Velas grant program and is receiving support for creating the first decentralized stablecoin (USDV) on the Velas blockchain, allowing users to unlock the full potential of their financial assets.

What is the partnership about?

The core concept of this partnership is to provide an easy way to complete transactions on the blockchain using a stable decentralized currency (USDV) that offers many advantages to Velas users. In early 2021, Velas launched a grants program offering a total of $100 million in development funds to promising projects and developers, such as VeleroDAO. Based on the MakerDAO protocol, VeleroDAO has created a collateral-backed stablecoin specifically for the Velas network.

This partnership gives the Velas community the following benefits:

  1. USDV is a decentralized cryptocurrency with a rate that is always equal to 1 US dollar and allows users to earn tokens by holding a deposit in their wallet.
  2. VeleroDAO shares its vision for a progressive blockchain with Velas, allowing users to access fully decentralized infrastructure projects without worrying about security and privacy.
  3. Users can buy or sell USDV tokens without intermediaries.
  4. When transferring USDV to another person, the user sends the complete equivalent of the US dollar without being affected by volatility.
  5. Users aren’t required to pay fees except for the small gas commission on the blockchain. This small fee is the same for any amount transferred, meaning, users won’t get charged more for transferring larger amounts.
  6. Regular users aren’t the only ones that can benefit from VeleroDAO’s platform features. Merchants can receive payments in USDV tokens directly from their customers, without external restrictions or any need for intermediary processes.
  7. By obtaining a VeleroDAO governance token, users can participate in liquidity asset auctions and purchase the collateralized assets for less than the market price.

Velas welcomes new partners

In 2021, Velas initiated a Grants Program to diversify and expand the Velas blockchain by empowering projects and developers. The program amounts to an astounding 100 million dollars at this time.

To become eligible to participate in this program, developers and projects must be able to demonstrate a constructive idea or business plan that has the potential to be beneficial to the Velas ecosystem. We are delighted to support projects that will contribute to moving towards the next step of the Internet evolution.

Velas $100 Million Grants Program supports a wide range of blockchain projects while prioritizing NFT, gaming, DeFi, and similar solutions.
