What is Dynamic Set Dollar (DSD) Protocol?
The DSD platform is a decentralized protocol that aims to create an uncollateralized algorithmic stablecoin which relies on game theory to maintain its peg at $1.
What is Dynamic Set Dollar (DSD) about?
Stablecoins have been around for a while and are quintessential to the crypto industry. However, most existing stablecoins are collateralized by either fiat or crypto assets which goes against DeFi’s call for decentralization. The DSD Protocol was thus formed in late November of 2020 to address a gap in the market and become one of the first truly decentralized stablecoins.
The DSD Protocol came into existence at a time where many other algorithmic stablecoins were really starting to develop. This means that the scene is still in its infancy and highly experimental. The DSD protocol is no exception and has been undergoing many iterations in order to maintain its peg at $1.
How does Dynamic Set Dollar (DSD) Protocol work?
The DSD Protocol relies on game theory to control its circulating supply. When the price of a DSD coin goes above $1, the protocol will enter into an expansion phase and start minting DSD coins as rewards to all governance stakers and liquidity providers. By expanding the supply, price will inevitably drop.
On the other hand, when the price of a DSD coin falls below $1, the protocol enters into a contractionary phase where DSD coins will stop being minted. Instead, the coupon redemption system will be unlocked where users may purchase these coupons with DSD coins in exchange for a premium (i.e. receive more DSD coins) but only if the price of a DSD coin reaches $1 or above. The idea is that users burn their DSD coins in exchange for coupons - this reduces the circulating supply and would naturally lead to a price increase.
However, this system has to also factor in user behaviour and overall market dynamics. If users decide to ignore the coupon incentives and not participate in the system as a rational user, it will affect the protocol’s ability to maintain its peg at $1.
Do take note that coupons expire after 360 epochs (30 days).
