What is Basis Cash Protocol?
Basis Cash aims to be a censorship-resistant and fairly distributed implementation of the original Basis Protocol that was shut down in 2018. The Basis Cash Protocol has implemented three core changes from the original project: simplified mechanisms surrounding bond issuance and seigniorage distribution, an anonymous team to mitigate censorship and having a single point of failure, and being fairly distributed since both Basis Shares and Basis Cash have zero premine and no investors. Basis Cash Protocol is a three-token system. Basis Cash (BAC) is a stablecoin that the protocol aims to keep value-pegged to 1 US Dollar. Basis Bonds (BAB) are IOUs issued by the system to buy back Basis Cash when the price of BAC is less than $1. BAB is sold for less than the price of BAC and is redeemed at $1 when the price of BAC normalizes to $1. Basis Share (BAS) is a token used to distribute any seigniorage surplus remaining after all the bonds have been redeemed. BAC and BAS are listed on Poloniex in our DeFi Innovation Zone.
