What is Velvet DAO?
DeFi Operating System for Seamless On-Chain Fund Creation
At its core, Velvet DAO is fulfilling its mission by building Velvet.Capital a DeFi Asset Management Operating System that empowers investors to create a wide array of DeFi products across different digital assets and ecosystems. From simple tokenized funds and crypto portfolios to intricately structured products and advanced yield farming strategies, Velvet is reimagining what's possible in the DeFi space!
Created in response to the failures of centralized finance platforms that led to the loss of funds for many people and professional investors - Velvet DAO aims to provide a transparent and secure alternative for investment management. We’re committed to DeFi Asset Management Done Right.
For institutional clients who wish to build DeFi products using Velvet, the platform provides a "DeFi-as-a-Service" solution. By integrating with all major DeFi protocols, our DeFi operating system can be tailored to fit any of your portfolio management needs!
Velvet.Capital Head & Shoulders Above Competition:
Omni-Chain Portfolio Management: Velvet is the first DeFi protocol that aims to provide omni-chain asset management capabilities, so that portfolio managers are not constrained to a single chain and can execute complex strategies across multiple ecosystems.
Superior On-Chain Trade Execution: Our priority is to provide asset managers with the best possible on-chain liquidity: we’ve already integrated major DEX aggregators and AMMs, and now working with our strategic partners on additional capabilities that will allow to access deeper liquidity sourced from leading industry market makers.
Smart Yield Farming: Velvet is integrated with top DeFi primitives & yield aggregators so that asset managers can execute yield generating strategies from lending, staking or liquidity framing of the underlying assets. Our architecture allows for flexible yield harvesting logic, either reinvesting rewards or trading them into other assets such as stablecoins.
Fund Management API: We’re building an API layer on top of Velvet protocol allowing asset managers & quant traders to use familiar tools off-chain to create & automate execution logic and then plug it into Velvet directly triggering on-chain events.
Automated Tokenization: Every fund or strategy is deployed on-chain with a series of smart contracts and can be automatically tokenized: the fund managers and their clients can create (mint) or redeem (burn) tokens representing it, and the tokens are always fully-backed by the underlying assets.
Permissioning Capabilities: Velvet offers optional functionality to turn on wallet whitelisting, limiting the ability to access the strategy (e.g., allow only clients who went through KYC/KYB or onboarding procedures), restrict transfers and limit the assets and protocols permitted within the strategy.
Smart Rebalancing: Velvet's smart rebalancing calculates the optimal route for “many-to-many” trades and batches them into one transaction, enabling seamless portfolio rebalancing with a single click.
White-label solution: For larger institutional funds and asset managers Velvet offers white-label solution, which allows to deploy a client portal on a custom domain & infrastructure preserving direct client relationships. We can support integration with other systems and provide a setup tailored to your needs.
Flexible Custody Options: The default is a non-custodial vault standard, so that the assets are preserved within keyless vaults which neither our team nor asset managers can access. However, we offer flexible custody options in our white-label solution for institutional clients who would like to use multisig vaults, MPCs or any other option depending on their internal requirements.
Additional support services: Velvet has a deep network of strategic partners which can provide additional services covering all fund manager needs, including: setting up a legal wrapper for the fund, AML & compliance services (KYC, KYT, etc.), reporting, and any other administrative functions.
In terms of tokenomics and governance, Velvet DAO will introduce a governance token, $VLVT, that provides voting power to token-holders who stake their $VLVT tokens with Velvet. The protocol also has a vote-escrowed version of $VLVT called veVLVT, which can be obtained by locking $VLVT tokens for up to 5 years. The total supply of $VLVT tokens is capped at 1,000,000,000, with 5% reserved for airdrop & staking rewards to bootstrap initial decentralization and incentivize stakeholders to lock their tokens.
With the Founders Club NFT, both your airdrop amount and voting power in Velvet DAO doubles!
Velvet.Capital places a high priority on maintaining top-notch security measures. To ensure the protection of user assets, they have had their smart contracts audited by industry-leading security firms, Peckshield and Shellboxes. The audits are conducted regularly on every version of the protocol to ensure that Velvet.Capital's security systems remain up-to-date and continue to provide the highest level of protection to users.
