We have seen new decentralized finance projects launching innovative solutions with fiat currencies and inflation. One to keep an eye on is Hector DAO and its reserve-backed cryptocurrency.
Hector DAO emerged as a fork from Olympus DAO. The platform has a complex system of multiple interconnected smart contracts that aims to build a reserve treasury from platform profits for its native currency, $HEC. This algorithmic reserve currency is backed by MakerDAO’s DAI stablecoin and many other crypto-assets.
Ultimately, Hector DAO aims to become the decentralized reserve currency of the Fantom Opera network.
Hector DAO is only little over 1 month old and already ranks 5th among the native Fantom projects when it comes to TVL. Even though overall market conditions where difficult, $HEC was the best performer over the last 7 days on $FTM.

Hector DAO Yield Programs
The protocol offers two main options for users to earn yields. Therefore, staking enables users to deposit $HEC to earn a share of earnings from the liquidity pool. Bonding is where uses lend their tokens LP (liquidity provider) to receive native tokens.
On the other hand, the rebase project has a system of dilution, which can be viewed as a type of controlled inflation. The number of $HEC tokens minted is directly linked to the revenue generated by bond sales.
We just published a medium article discussing in depth the importance of maintaining a healthy APY. Make sure to read this article 🙏➡️ https://t.co/DmJBNaTVJr

In a blog post on December 12th, the Hector DAO team explained: “Since each HEC token can only be minted with a real backing, more bond sales mean that more HEC tokens can be minted, which means APYs can be higher.”
Additionally, Annual Percentage Yields (APY) aims to prevent inflation and to be able to mint tokens without collateral backing.
Moreover, in recent news, Hector DAO announced a partnership with Rari Capital on December 13th. The collaboration will enable $HEC in the native Olympus token, $OHM.
Finally, the Hector DAO dashboard is reporting a total value locked of $139 million at the time of writing. Additionally, with a circulating supply of 1.35 million tokens with a marketcap of $159.4 million.
