Getting familiar with the Tranche protocol
Tranche is a decentralized protocol for managing risk and maximizing returns. The protocol integrates with any interest accrual token, such as Compound's cTokens, AAVE's aTokens and Yearns strategies, to create two new interest-bearing instruments, one with a fixed-rate, Tranche A, and one with a variable rate, Tranche B.
Tranche has three core modules: Tranche, Stake, and Vote.
Users can deposit assets into Tranche A and receive a fixed-rate return, or deposit into Tranche B and receive variable returns that are higher than the underlying protocol.
SLICE holders and liquidity providers can lock-up their SLICE and SLICE-LP tokens to earn additional rewards distributed on weekly, monthly, bi-annual and annual schedules.
SLICE holders dictate the direction of the protocol. Holders can vote on adjusting protocol parameters, introducing new pairs, integrating new protocols or allocating treasury funds.
