What is Ampleforth Protocol (FORTH)?

Ampleforth protocol or FORTH (FORTH/USDT – Trade it here) is a decentralized financial infrastructure driving money innovation. Through its unit of account protocol AMPL, its DAO governance protocol FORTH, and its future inflation-resistant store of value protocol. Ampleforth develops and promotes the adoption of fundamental building blocks for a new digital economy. In this article, we will cover everything you need to know about Ampleforth Ecosystem plus an instruction on how to buy FORTH tokens.

FORTH Governance

FORTH token holders govern the Ampleforth protocol through a series of sequential actions, each of which represents a higher level of community consensus. Ideas and proposals are presented in our public forum or the discord, and they are finished when they are deployed onchain. On github, users can discover token contracts. Please see below for the 6-steps progress of increasing-level consensus:

  • Discussion. The places for discussing emerge ideas include but not limited to the #governance channel on Discord, social medias and community DAOs. A champion may formalize an initiative by submitting an Ampleforth Improvement Proposal (AIP) or Configuration Change Proposal whenever it appears that there is sufficient widespread support (ACCP).
  • Proposals (AIPs or ACCPs). Formal documents known as AIPs and ACCPs outline the proposed modification to the protocol or protocol configuration.
  • Targeted Discussion. Each proposal has a specific forum subject where discussion is result-driven. This stage aims to settle any outstanding issues and codify off-chain consensus.
  • Off-chain Signaling. If the previous stages did not provide an evident consensus, token holders’ off-chain signaling could be used to gather sentiment in a non-binding manner. By using actual voting power, this offers additional insight into the possibility of the result of the binding final vote.
  • Technical Development. Requirements are documented, released on a testnet, and secured by audit.
  • Binding Vote/Deployment. A binding vote that takes place onchain is the last step. The onchain vote is “binding” since it causes code execution directly as a result of its success. This involves introducing fresh protocol contracts or altering the state of those that already exist. Members of the community have the option of casting a direct vote with their FORTH tokens or delegating that vote to another address.

How does the Ampleforth Protocol work?

The Ampleforth Protocol adjusts the US dollar for CPI in 2019 and automatically increases or decreases the number of tokens in user wallets in accordance with price. Imagine AMPL as being comparable to Bitcoin, with the exception that as demand increases, the number of AMPL tokens in your wallet decreases.

When market demand suggests there is an excess or deficiency of supply, AMPL will stray from its target price; however, it will eventually return to the CPI-adjusted 2019 dollar. Although the supply of the AMPL token is volatile for holders, long-term contracts in AMPL remain constant.

In addition, AMPL cannot be broken by market forces and does not require any collateral, treasury, market-maker, or buyer-of-last-resort to return to its long-term aim. This is because the Ampleforth protocol transfers demand volatility rather than seeking to completely remove it.

FORTH DAO Introduction

A decentralized autonomous organization – the Forth DAO focuses only on promoting and adopting AMPL. It can do this by implementing activities that support the main objective, such as protocol owned liquidity, ecosystem development, marketing and more. Owners of FORTH tokens have the ability to direct money that are overseen by the DAO.

Protocol Owned Liquidity

On an automated market making platform (like Uniswap), when a wallet deposits tokens into both sides of a liquidity pool, it returns LP tokens to the depositor that reflect the wallet’s portion of the entire liquidity pool and these LP tokens accumulate trading fees to their holders.

The total amount of LP tokens kept in the FORTH DAO treasury is known as Protocol Owned Liquidity. Holders of FORTH tokens can control the usage of treasury assets to enhance or withdraw liquidity by taking part in governance.

Ecosystem Grants

Holders of the FORTH token will also be able to vote on grants for groups and initiatives that advance the Ampleforth and larger elastic finance ecosystem if the proposed grants program is approved.
