What is Anchor Protocol?


Anchor aims to be the gold standard of passive income in crypto. Distributing block rewards from POS blockchain staking rewards.

How Anchor Protocol works


  • Lenders deposit Terra stablecoins to earn yield. Borrowers supply bASSETS (bonded assets) to borrow stablecoins.
  • bASSETS are native proof of stake tokens.
  • The yield distributed to the lenders is the median of the block rewards of all the tokens.

Normal money markets interest rates fluctuate from supply & demand. Whereas POS block rewards are much less volatile over their emission period.

Currently the only collateral asset is LUNA.

Emissions

  • Staking ANC earns protocol fees.
  • Supply ANC/UST LP to Terraswap earns ANC.
  • Using protocol as lender or borrower earns tokens.
