The community will become responsible for the spending of the DAO's QUARTZ upon deployment of Snapshot and then, the DAO.

  • Insurance

QUARTZ might be used to capitalize an insurance fund. Once in place, Quartz stakers will benefit from the coverage.

  • Liquidity Mining/Bonds

QUARTZ can be distributed to incentivize additional liquidity (e.g. through KPI options).

  • TVL Mining

QUARTZ can be distributed to increase the TVL of Sandclock's metavaults (e.g. through KPI options).

  • Ecosystem Development/Grants

QUARTZ can be granted to incentivize development or marketing of our growing ecosystem.

Permalocked Tokens

At least 30% of QUARTZ shall remain locked in perpetuity. The purpose of this QUARTZ is to incentivize TVL growth, Giving, or other actions on-chain without diluting existing holders. It achieves this through a delegative function, whereby a trusted backend can delegate voting power to an address on Polygon without transferring ownership of the tokens.

It was initially designed in order to incentivize giving, but it can fulfill other objectives while preserving the value of QUARTZ.
