Who are IAGON?
Iagon is a leading technology company based in Norway that is developing a decentralised storage & compute protocol. Incorporating advanced machine learning algorithms in conjunction with blockchain technology to provide secure, scalable, compliant and cost-effective data storage and processing which can be customised to comply with fast-moving compliance regulations.
Proposal As a community we would like to propose allowing $IAG as an available asset on Liqwid, this will result in an extremely large and positive impact for the Liqwid protocol and Liqwid users based upon the following reasons:
Increased Protocol Audience Exposure - Iagon has an extremely strong & large international community around them, with over 14.1k followers on Twitter & over 8,500 token holders, $IAG is currently situated in the top 10 projects in Cardano by Market Cap, this community is unique as it consists of a joint audience of both Cardano & Ethereum users, which were recently migrated to Cardano when IAGON decided to utilise Cardano as it’s blockchain of choice.
Liqwid Protocol will benefit from exposure to this unique extended audience.
Liqwid Protocol will also benefit from increased volume.
Liqwid Users will also have increased borrowing & lending opportunities as a result of the above.
Liqwid Statistics & Marketing will benefit from all of the above.
The addition of $IAG as an asset class will allow for more Cardano community members to enhance a network of storage and in future compute. The ability to borrow $IAG and run nodes while earning rewards which can be of additional benefit to the protocol of both Liqwid and IAG sustainability together as one.
Remaining cautious and to ensure the protocol does not take on any bad debt $IAG’s proposed risk parameter’s match those proposed for WMT’s use as shown below(this can of course changed with a future proposal):
Hey @FlorianVolery I would also like to point out IAGON have an extremely active liquidity programme that is being run and contributing to increased liquidity at a faster rate.
Approximately 40,800 ADA is added to the liquidity each month as part of just the stake pool reward offering, this is without other token holders providing liquidity too as part of the reward incentive offered.

From my knowledge I have seen the liquidity increase by over 100% in under 4 weeks. If we were to estimate this on a projected basis with future growth in mind, which we should account for as this governance vote is ‘point in time’ at a time when growth for IAGON is undoubtable. In the next two months I believe this would be at least 3,200,000 ₳ which when in comparison with all other Cardano tokens, will place $IAG at 13th position or higher.
In comparison to Liqwid this is roughly 58% more liquidity when accounting future growth estimated by current growth over this period. Currently $IAG has liquidity just 17.9% below Liqwid whilst holding price support at above 0.20 for a consistent 24 days inclusive and counting after the project has reached testnet phase. I feel we should take into account these factors also, I completely understand why this was raised as a doubt.
