Pioneer Fund Rewards Program Summary

The AmpleSense DAO’s Pioneer Fund will deliver token rewards to community members helping to power the DAO’s mission by providing liquidity, participating in governance and engaging in other activities.

There are three funds in the program: Pioneer Funds I, II and III.

Pioneer Fund I is designed to provide ongoing rewards to individuals providing early liquidity for the kMPL governance token (by participating in the DAO’s Zeus and Apollo kGeysers).

The DAO has developed custom-designed NFTs: the Zeus and Apollo kGeyser Pioneer tokens. These NFTs will be airdropped to a randomly selected group of early kGeyser program participants. Holders can stake these NFTs into the Pioneer Fund I vault to receive rewards.

Pioneer Fund II is similar to governance vaults developed by other DAOs (such as Yearn Finance).

kMPL holders will be able to stake their tokens into the Pioneer Fund II vault and receive rewards from DAO supported initiatives.

Pioneer Fund III will deliver rewards to individuals providing liquidity for the kMPL/ETH pair on Uniswap.

The Pioneer Fund is summarized in the graphic below (click to view larger size).
