GARD Aeneas Kickoff Announcement

GARD Protocol is excited to announce its continued partnership with the Algorand Foundation. The GARD Protocol has received a significant Aeneas grant from the foundation which will be used to boost protocol adoption. As we ramp up to deploy these rewards, we would first like to promise that those who use the GARD Protocol through our web application will receive 5X their usual governance rewards for the first 200 ALGOs they commit through our protocol. In order to commit through our web application all one needs to do is borrow 1 $GARD. Our goal is to bring more active users into both DeFi and Governance while also learning to use our web application.

These rewards will stack on top of the GARDIAN Incentive Program as well. The GARDIAN token will afford early users and participants ownership of the GARD Protocol. The GARD team is committed to decentralization and rewarding its earliest adopters.

GARD is a decentralized lending protocol and stablecoin built to unlock the liquidity within Algorand Governance. Users will be able to mint GARD, using their Governance commitment as collateral, creating liquid staking options for the 50,000 Governors that are currently staking 2.8 Billion ALGO. The protocol will be announcing more ways soon that it will be incentivizing its adoption with granted funds soon.

Questions? Reach out to us on Twitter, Telegram, or Discord as we will be providing a white-glove service to help onboard budding Algorand Governors. #WAGMI
