In Gyroscope, every unit is designed to be backed with assets that diversify more than price risk.
Gyroscope’s reserve is intended to be actively deployed to backstop liquidity and grow the protocol in principled ways.
The Gyroscope design includes measures to monitor the system health and auto-adjust liquidity and risk management according to transparent rules.
Designed to build a virtuous cycle between its different users: Gyro Dollar holders, governors, and liquidity providers.
We use new governance primitives that allow governance changes to be conditional on a timelock and veto process.
