Welcome back to another episode of your weekly Dose of DeFi 👋

The place where we keep you, the builders and investors, up to date with all that goes on in this ecosystem!

What we cover in today's podcast:

Today we cover three very similar topics all with the undertone of tokenised ownership and how it's the best coordination tool since equity!

We start from a theoretical standpoint with an amazing write-up from Julien (Investor at Fabric Ventures). We discuss Julien's post, why we think it's interesting and our learnings from it! 

Then we go deep into this topic as we consider governance challenges already emerging within the decentralized finance protocols pioneering these mechanisms, such as Compound, Balancer, Curve and Ampleforth.

Tokenized Ownership

Give someone a dollar, and they will help you for a day. Give them tokenised ownership, and they will be on your side for a lifetime.

Curve DAO

You can find the documentation about the Curve DAO & token here.

AMPL Geyser

AMPL - one of the most fascinating economic experiments we've ever come across!

Check out this video to learn more about it:

If you’d like to dive deeper check out the podcast interview we had with Evan Kuo (Founder and CEO of Ampleforth):

Here are some resources to help you learn more about it’s token and its incentivised Uniswap pool (AMPL Geyser):

TL;DR - The AMPL Geyser distributes AMPL tokens from the ecosystem fund to those who provide liquidity on Uniswap V2. The more liquidity you provide, and for longer, the greater share of the AMPL pool you receive.

The AMPL pool in the Geyser unlocks gradually over time, and stakers receive share over the unlocked AMPL over time.
