Q~ Let’s learn some more about the project. What is Project Inverse all about in a few simple sentences?

A~ INVERSE is a DeFI protocol that allows users to stake out utility token XIV for a short duration of time (3 days, and 7days) within tracking vaults that track the movements of select DeFi coins and DeFi index. INVERSE allows users to earn gains from the downward moves of the coins or index being followed in the tracking vaults in the form of additional XIV tokens.

Q~ What are the tokenomics and usecases of the $XIV token?

A~ The Platform is a protocol that consists of Select DeFi coin tracking vaults and a DeFi index tracking vaults. These vaults track the movements of specific DeFI coins or a DeFi index of ten aggregated coins know as the DeFi index. Users can stake their tokens for 3 to 7 days and can earn additional XIV in a range from 10% to 2x (or 200%) the amount of XIV staked based on the downward moves of the coins or Index being tracked by the tracking vaults. Users can either set their own staking parameters or choose parameters fixed by the protocol.

XIV is a utility token that can be staked within tracking vaults that follow the movement in select DeFi coins / index for 7 days. Only XIV can be held in the tracking vaults. Thus, XIV powers / drivers the staking vaults and all rewards are pain in additional XIV. XIV users have also received NFTs, and there will be more utility attached to XIV.


Q~ You partnered with Ferrum Network to introduce a Staking program, how many staking pools have you introduced and what APYs will you be offering, and how to do I take advantage of this, any detailed tutorials?

A~ There are two staking vaults. The voyager is 170%APY and the Explorer is 100% APY. Unfortunately both pools are close for now.

Q~ I saw that the Project Inverse platform only has swap capacity in ETH and USDT. Can you tell us if you have plans to expand beyond these cryptocurrencies and implement others like BTC? Also, can you tell me about staking in P2P? What other plans does Project Inverse have to add this method for user benefits?

A~ The swapping feature is a minor feature of the platform. Most important to the platform are the tracking vaults and the Liquidity Pool. Swapping will be kept simple most likely with a Uniswap link.


Q~ Now that you have successfully completed the closed beta and open beta testing of the inverse protocol, do you have any dates planned for the final release of the first public MVP of the inverse platform, what are your core plans actions for the next 3 to 6 months?

A~ Yes, we will be launching first public MVP on April 30! In the next 3 to 6 months, we will be adding a whole lot more functionalities to the platform.

Q~ It is generally known that crypto and DeFi space is volatile. Why is inverse protocol offered to users only during sell-off or dip period and not both ways (uptrend and downtrend) . How does this help solve volatility in the DeFi space?

A~ Great question. First, we will start we will start with downside functionality and will add upside functionality in due course.

Q~ Early March, we saw an implementation of Project Inverse first NFT and lottery sale, can you tell us the utilities of the Vault Ship one NFT, what incentives are the NFT holders entitled to?

I also read that each of the major vaults on the INVERSE platform will have its own NFT in the form of a signature Space Ship. so when is the next lottery round for the NFT of the other vaults?

A~ The Project Inverse NFT called Vault Ship One was part of a Presale lottery, airdroped to. 80 participants with over 2000 applicants. Rewards include but not limited to XIV Airdrops, access to unique features on the Inverse Platform, and extra rewards for LP on the Platform. We are very excited about our NFT Vault Ship One.

Q~ Will the project add any new features in the future?

A~ Yes, many features will be added, for example many classes of coins will be added as well as upside betting.

Q~ Liquidity, transaction fees and slippage have always been important factors in Financial services. How do you solve the above problems to attract users?
