Ultrafast Tether

As much as we love Bitcoin, its price is extremely volatile. For payments, and as a stable store of value, Tether is the number one stablecoin.

Libre provides a simple, open, and trustless exchange between Bitcoin and Tether. Anyone can swap BTC / USDT for the internet's lowest fee (0.1%) - and if you provide liquidity - you will earn from the accumulation of trading fees on the AMM. Stake and unstake any time.

Frequently asked questions

What is the LIBRE coin?
Libre - chevron arrow

LIBRE is the native coin that enables the Libre Chain protocol rules. Network participants can stake LIBRE enact governance, receive them as mining rewards, and earn them for providing liquidity. Specifically, LIBRE serves three functions:

Governance - voting in Libre DAO to govern the AMM and chain protocol settings.

Validator Elections - each wallet can choose 1 validator, votes decay over time so as your staking period nears its end, your voting power will weaken.

Staking - staking LIBRE for governance pays a yield which is higher the earlier you stake and the longer you stake.

What is the LIBRE AMM liquidity pool?
Libre - chevron arrow

The initial liquidity pool will be on LIBRE in the swap.libre AMM contract and it will be LIBRE/BTC - 100% of the BTC raised in the mint rush will go to the AMM. This AMM liquidity pool is proportionately owned by accounts that provide liquidity. Those accounts can earn fees from trades, earn liquidity farming rewards, and vote on the swap fee rate for each pool.

Who holds the most LIBRE?
Libre - chevron arrow

LIBRE will be distributed widely and fairly through the Mint Rush. The circulating supply of LIBRE will be ~323M LIBRE. We have taken inspiration from the “fair launch” concept described by Hasu and Arjun Balaji in their Medium article.

What is LIBRE staking?
Libre - chevron arrow

LIBRE yields are based on 2 criteria - the days since launch that you stake, and the length of your stake. Therefore, the earlier you stake and the longer you stake, the higher your yield will be. Just like Bitcoin block rewards decline over time, the yield rate for stakes declines daily.
