About The Program

The GARDIAN incentive program is a program designed to reward GARD Protocol participants for participating in the protocol from day one. The GARDIAN token is a loyalty token that will be later redeemable for the GAIN token (the future governance/value accrual token of the GARD Protocol) on or before April 15, 2025. The GARDIAN token is necessary to enable the founding team to distribute ownership in the protocol before releasing the GAIN token. This distribution of GARDIAN will help ensure that the protocol’s earliest supporters have a stake in the protocol’s future success and will help decentralize the protocol more quickly.

There will be a total of 1,000,000,000 GARDIAN tokens minted that will be equivalent and later convertible to 5% of the total GAIN token supply (100,000,000 tokens). These tokens will be distributed by our protocol and other ecosystem partners to promote the growth of the GARD Protocol and broader Algorand community while making a commitment to decentralizing our protocol from day one. If more GARDIAN are minted in the future to fulfill the same purpose, they will be redeemable for GAIN at the same ratio. Also, if our protocol decides to discontinue the incentive program all undistributed GARDIAN will be burned and distributed GARDIAN will become immediately convertible.

Program Details

15M ALGO DeFi Governance Boost

  • Thanks to the passing of Algorand Governance Period 5 Measure 1, there is now an even bigger incentive to participate in governance via a DeFi protocol like GARD.
  • Users who participate via DeFi Governance on the GARD Protocol will also be eligible for their share of 15M ALGOs that will be distributed quarterly to DeFi participants.

  • We will be paying out 1,000 to 2,000 GARD/Week in our staking pools to boost the underlying GARD Protocol rewards rate.
  • During this governance period we will be launching new pools and either add or move rewards to different pools to ensure users take advantage of the highest value actions the protocol has to offer.

  • Once the GARDIAN staking pool on Yieldy runs out during January, we will move GARDIAN staking to the GARD dApp.
  • During Algorand Governance period 6, we will have 10M GARDIAN available to be earned in a no-lock continuously compounding staking pool for our loyal supporters to be rewarded.
