Orcus Finance - Builders Program Application

Project Overview

Orcus Finance is delivering the first Fractional-Algorithmic Stablecoin - oUSD, which is pegged to the United States dollar and is built on the Astar Network. Since Astar Network is a gateway to the multi-chain environment, we are going to expand our stablecoin to as many networks as possible in the near future.

oUSD uses Dual-Token collateralization, meaning that every oUSD is backed by USDC on the one side, and a part of a governance utility token - $ORU on the other. The oUSD token doesn’t have any hard cap or fixed total supply, the circulation supply of stablecoin depends on the current market supply and demand.

ORU token plays governance and share role inside every minted oUSD. Besides, ORU has a deflationary economical model. It was designed to be burnt and/or protocol owned by the team. This tactic was taken from Olympus DAO.

Orcus Finance is an entirely decentralized and autonomous protocol with the native governance token which aims to be the first leading Fractional-Algorithmic Stablecoin issuer on the Astar network and to implement multiple useful financial tools and other synthetic assets in the ecosystem.

Thanks a lot for your application.

Milestone1: (Launch at March)

$200k equivalent ASTR for the initial liquidity provision on ArthSwap:

Could you clarify the pools? Do you want Astar to provide USDC liquidity in your pool?
We will coördinate this liquidity together with the ArthSwap team. We cant set any amount at the current stage of development.

Milestone2: (Further marketing support in March - April)

$20k equivalent ASTR for:

I would like to set this grant based on KPIs.
This can be based on TVL and usage of dApp through analytics from DappRadar.
TVL $5M → $5k USD equivalent to ASTR
TVL $20M → $15k USD equivalent to ASTR
Users +1k (24h) → $5k USD equivalent to ASTR
… these are just examples but it would be great if we could set those and reward your marketing based on achieved KPIs.

Milestone3: (This should be within 2 months after delivering milestone2)

When reaching Milestone 3 and added value to our ecosystem meeting certain standards we can add Orcus to our dApp staking mechanism where you can earn basic rewards and can cover the total amount of this grant through this staking mechanism.

Hey,

Thanks for the application. I just want to ask about tokenomics of ORU token. In the documentation is written:

The emission of ORU is not fixed, it’s subject to change during adjusting new rates for boosting rewards to incentivize partners of Orcus Finance.

Correct me if I am wrong, do you predict to supply unknown amount of token in the future?

50,000,000 ORU are reserved for the public sale which will be held on the Orcus Launchpad. Tokens will be distributed over 2 months.

What about idea of expansion of the time to around 24 months?

project suspected rugging. there’s a lot of fud from community mentioning its delay and etc. Fundraising has been done even website is not ready.

This is not a scam project. They just delayed the launch by a couple of days. The protocol is working and the team is actively communicating with the community in the discord. They explained the withdrawal of funds by salaries for developers, which is normal. A large part of the liquidity was channeled into the major trading pairs.
