Idle protocol: a yield aggregator and rebalancing protocol, which offers a suite of allocation strategies that provides efficient lending aggregation and yield generation.
$IDLE: Governance token (ERC-20) that allows the owner to propose and vote any proposals made by token holders, or delegate voting power to another address.
Best-Yield strategy: it allows users to optimize interest rate profitability and seamlessly get the highest yields across lending protocols.
Risk-Adjusted strategy: it provides a way to earn the best rate across the safest lending protocols.
Idle pool: funds represented by only one asset and invested in a strategy (e.g. DAI in Best-Yield strategy).
IdleTokens: tokens minted during deposits, that represent the underlying assets plus the interests (e.g. IdleDAIBestYield, IdleUSDCBestYield, IdleUSDTBestYield..).
Proposal: it is how ideas are implemented into Idle protocol. Proposals start as ideas in the Forum, become IIP, and then on-chain Proposals.
IIP: Idle Improvement Proposal is the post that allows the discussion of a structured proposal. It’s the last step before the on-chain voting phase.
Delegation: providing voting rights to any Ethereum address that votes on your behalf.
Self-delegation: assigning the voting rights to yourself.
Liquidity Bootstrap Program: distribution of IDLE tokens to liquidity providers between November 26th and December 26th 2020.
Liquidity Mining Program: distribution of IDLE tokens to liquidity providers for 23 months, starting from December 26th 2020.
Fiat on ramp: tools to buy tokens with Bank account or Credit card
Early LPs: users that provided liquidity before November 1st 2020.
Idle Forum: Discourse forum that collects the discussions related to Governance and protocol improvements.
Idle Snapshot Page: this interface allows community members to signal their voting sentiment regarding a possible proposal.
Governance Dashboard: the interface that allows community members to cast votes on-chain and determine if an IIP will be approved or not.
Temperature Check: a method to taste the sentiment of the community about a potential change. Used at the early stage of the off-chain Proposal process.
Consensus Check: a method to taste the sentiment of the community about a potential change. Used at the final stage of the off-chain Proposal process.
Pending State: the period immediately after that a proposer deploys on-chain the Proposal.
Voting Phase: the period when IDLE token holders cast their vote “For” or “Against”.
Execution Phase: the period when the Proposal is implemented or rejected.
Grant: allocation of crypto to selected contractors to code a protocol’s change. Grant Proposals are launched when Proposals don’t come with executable code.
Bounty request: a request of funds to execute self-proposed tasks.
