BAO coin is the token of Bao Finance.
The goal of Bao Finance is to build the DeFi alternative as powerful as TradFi. Most people don’t realize that financial data is what makes TradFi institutions so powerful.
That’s why Bao Finance started building the tools for those people who are seeking control of their own finances, even if that brings up some learning curve.
Bao is building a new system with synthetic assets that allow to create financial instruments and markets never seen before - or not in public trading platforms, accessible without licenses and exams. But if the data exists, so too can a marketplace for it - the possibilities are endless.
The financial data is why you can’t do what institutions do. The contribution of Bao Finance asre the synthetics: With them you can get liquidity in any discrete quantifiable event.
In 2022, Bao Finance plan to start off with only a few synthetic products and the first of them is, of course, a stablecoin - baoUSD.
