Aliquo is a community-governed protocol on the Ethereum blockchain dedicated to creating, issuing, and maintaining a suite of decentralized reserve assets. Offering equal access to everyone, Aliquo aims to unfold the potential of ERC-721 tokens as a blockchain-based infrastructure to build financial public goods.
AQ1 are 1,000 NFTs collateralized 1:1 with a 0,1% stake in the AQ1 Vault. Fueled by a flywheel mechanism, Aliquo collects the earnings from royalties over secondary sales of AQ1 at the AQ1 Vault to accrue as backed value for AQ1 itself.
AQ1 holders constitute Aliquo DAO, giving them the right to issue and vote on governance proposals, changes, and amendments regarding the Aliquo Protocol.
Asset are 100 NFTs collateralized 1:1 with a 1% stake in the Asset Vault. Following the Aliquo Standard — which was first introduced and embodied through AQ1 —, Asset collects the earnings from royalties over secondary sales at the Asset Vault to accrue as backed value for Asset itself; a royalty-fueled flywheel mechanism.
Aliquo DAO is the decentralized organization of AQ1 token-holders responsible for the governance of Aliquo.
Aliquo Treasury is the protocol reserve that accrues the royalties over secondary sales of the protocol-native tokens.
Aliquo Treasury is divided into two separate vaults: AQ1 Vault and Asset Vault, on which each vault collects and accrues the earnings from secondary sales of the protocol-native token it represents. Each vault of the Aliquo Treasury is fractionalized in a fixed number of stakes with a theoretical ratio of 1:1 between the stakes and the supply cap of the token that each vault represents, on which the token supply cap is the coefficient of the number of stakes, and each stake collateralizes 1:1 the floor price of each NFT.
Aliquo introduces a flywheel mechanism that makes the protocol collect 100% of earnings from royalties over secondary sales of Aliquo-native NFTs, of which 100% of the earnings become employed to back the floor price of the NFTs themselves. This creates Aliquo Flywheel — the protocol’s core mechanism and the key agent behind Aliquo Standard.
Aliquo Standard is a blueprint that draws a token model design composed of underlying financial features for ERC-721 tokens.
