Welcome to the Nuon documentation site.
Nuon.fi is a safe and transparent DeFi protocol where users can mint Nuon flatcoins to hedge against inflation and take advantage of arbitrage opportunities.
Nuon is the world’s first true decentralized flatcoin — a stablecoin with a price peg that rises and falls with inflation rates, shielding holders against loss of value from inflation.
Current daily inflation levels are measured by Truflation, an independent inflation index oracle. Truflation calculates the Nuon peg daily and shares it with the Nuon protocol, which uses over-collateralization and arbitrage to maintain the peg while offsetting inflation for Nuon flatcoin holders.
Nuon can be minted on the Nuon Protocol by depositing cryptocurrency collateral — accepted tokens include ETH, BTC, AVAX, BUSD, USDC and USDT. Nuon loans feature double-audited, open-source smart contracts, insured deposits and a zero percent interest rate for borrowers’ peace of mind. Additionally, minted Nuon is always over-collateralized to ensure the peg is stable.
Nuon can also be purchased directly from exchanges. This offers anybody a quick way to hedge against inflation without having to go through the process of collateralization. This avenue is best suited to retail users , leaving the minting of fresh Nuon primarily to market makers and arbitrageurs.
Nuon flatcoins offer all the benefits of stablecoins, like being a safe haven from volatile crypto markets while allowing users to leverage inflation protection and limit their risk of liquidation through deposit insurance.
Nuon flatcoins help users retain their purchasing power while also remaining entirely backed by the market value of collateral. While everyone holding fiat-pegged stablecoins is losing to inflation, Nuon stablecoins remain shielded and overcollateralized at all times. You can buy Nuon off the market to benefit from its inflation protection.
You can borrow Nuon interest-free by depositing crypto assets at your chosen collateral ratio (CR), not lower than a smart contract minimum. A Liquidation Ratio is established separately for each asset. It’s then dynamically updated based on a daily inflation adjustment and the difference between the target and the market peg of the Nuon flatcoins.
Safe and Secure
A flatcoin you can trust: Nuon will partner with known DeFi auditors and insurers to enable insurance (collateral), audits (smart contracts and peg) and real-time transparency on users’ deposited collateral, offering an additional asset protection layer against crypto volatility, bear markets and bad actors.
Trust and Transparency
Nuon will partner with Chainlink’s Proof of Reserve to provide transparent and real-time independent audit to ensure that the collateral hub holds the assets it claims to on behalf of its clients.
Nuon smart contracts are thoroughly tested and audited by CoinFabrik, a certified auditor in the smart contract security field which previously audited Algorand.
Nuon protocol algorithms are autonomous and are part of an open-source, EVM-compatible environment that makes it easy to build third-party applications and services and enrich the entire ecosystem.
Decentralized and Censorship-Resistant
Many adjustable features of the protocol and the general direction of the Nuon platform are governed by a decentralized community of nuMINT governance token holders through a ‘Boardroom’ governance system of proposals, discussions, and voting.
Deposit collateral to mint Nuon for use in liquidity pools, as collateral on other DeFi protocols, and other yield-generating strategies.As the price of Nuon increases with inflation, this creates a highly capital efficient ecosystem as compared to stablecoins pegged to fiat.
Purchase Nuon on popular exchanges to gain the inflation-hedging advantages of Nuon without having to deposit collateral.
Hold Nuon flatcoins to hedge against volatile market inflation, which currently ranges between 10-12% a year.
Gain additional rewards from automated liquidity pools on every Nuon minted, and by depositing Nuon and nuMINT on other DeFi platforms and liquidity pools.
Use the minor fluctualtions in the peg opportunities to speculate on Nuon prices.
Stake nuMINT tokens to submit and vote on proposals that affect the future governance of the Nuon protocol.
