March saw continued growth at Tempus in numerous ways. The team has now grown to a solid 20 members and we’re still recruiting! With new Sers joining the community, we will be publishing educational content to educate users about DeFi, yield farming, and the differences and similarities between TradFi and DeFi. Our Tempus Takes blogs examine the current market conditions and their impact on the interest rates in the traditional world and in DeFi. Tempus’ Treasury Management Solution is now live and we would be happy to assist DAOs and other protocols in managing their treasury assets. We can ensure you earn a fixed yield, making it easier to manage your cashflows each month.
As Tempus’ TVL continues to rise and as we pursue more integrations, we’re going in one direction — #UpOnly!
DeFi Treasury Management Solution
Most DAOs have a diversified treasury of various digital assets, including stablecoins. These treasuries have various needs, such as paying the DAO’s contributors, managing assets (including NFTs) collectively, and paying for operations and other fixed costs incurred in the running of the DAO. DAOs require regular cashflows to ensure their future sustainability. Tempus’ Treasury Management Solution can help protect DAOs from the risk of fluctuating interest rates — we can provide you with a guaranteed fixed yield.
Tempus adds USDC and DAI pools on Ethereum
In addition to the existing stETH pool, you can now deposit your USDC and DAI to fix your yields on two new Yearn pools available on Tempus:
- USDC ~ 6-month term (Maturity Date: 30 September 2022)
- DAI ~ 9-month term (Maturity Date: 30 December 2022)
Go to Tempus and fix your yield now!
Stake $TEMP on Bancor
A funding proposal to fund the $TEMP/$BNT pool on Bancor with $750k $TEMP using Treasury funds was rejected on Tempus’ Snapshot. However, $TEMP trading liquidity was increased from 100k $BNT to 500k $BNT on Bancor. $TEMP holders can stake their $TEMP in the single-sided staking pools on Bancor to earn rewards from their single-sided exposure in the liquidity pool, with 100% impermanent loss protection.
