Bond is issued on the Bitshares blockchain. Each Unit represents a monetary value, that derives from secure, appreciating assets held in Bond’s asset portfolio.
This digital transformation allows Bond’s assets to remain on the balance sheet, but the value of these assets becomes transferable with Bond Unit.
The quarterly rate of return is pegged to Bond’s performance in Bitcoin peer to peer lending markets. 25% of profits generated from this activity will be distributed equally amongst Bond holders in Bitusd. The remaining 75% of profits will be made available for Peer to peer lending. Performance rates tend to increase with greater volatility in Bitcoin markets. Bond is designed to hold its value when the world seems like it’s about to implode with currency devaluation, capital controls and the inevitable rise of interest rates.
