What is Charged Particles
👋 Welcome to Charged Particles docs. This is a live document that will be updated as we evolve. Currently, we aim to provide a high level overview of the protocol and its existing components.
Our mission is to become a core infrastructural technology in the development of NFTs. We've redefined uniqueness and ushered in a new era of innovation for NFTs.
Someday, all NFTs will have the option to be “charged”: In the future, the protocol will be everywhere NFTs exist.
These docs are still being worked on. Some parts may be unfinished or pending updates.
Transform a scarce NFT (e.g. Art, Collectible, Virtual Real Estate, In-Game Item, any NFT) into a basket holding a number of other tokens.
This changes the game for NFTs.
Yield-bearing aTokens with programmable charge is just one of the many assets that NFTs can hold. Have a number of LP Tokens, Speculative tokens or your own social tokens? Deposit any/all of them inside a scarce NFT — all possible.
Additionally, users can easily deposit tokens / assets into OTHER user’s NFTs. Your NFT now has its own wallet.
Users can easily customize the configurations of their NFTs — Mechanics for your Charged Particles include:
- Charge. If you deposit an asset that’s supported as an Aave aToken — it’s instantly swapped and you can determine how you would like to treat the interest. For example, this charge can be discharged to a different address — the NFT creator, a friend, a charity — your choice!
- Mass (Principal) Removal Configurations. Do you have to burn the NFT to remove the principle from the NFT?
This creates a new and independent asset class of “charged” NFTs including tradable markets and establishment as a cornerstone piece of the a “DeFi lego block economy”
