Genius Yield and Genius X are pleased to partner with Clarity Protocol to develop and implement decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) infrastructure for the Genius ecosystem. DAOs are smart-contracts-guided organizations without central authorities that can be launched on public blockchains like Cardano.

Genius Yield is on the quest to deliver decentralized finance (DeFi) solutions for everyone. We plan to launch a decentralized exchange (DEX) and a smart liquidity vault for automating trading strategies on Cardano. Genius Yield is behind Genius X, the business accelerator and launchpad that assists ambitious founders in scaling their Web3 project. Genius X offers technical, marketing, and legal support, together with requisite tools, for all vetted and onboarded projects, ensuring that they have a solid base to gain traction quickly and flourish in the highly competitive crypto scene. In the first phase of their partnership, Clarity Protocol will lay out DAO tooling and enable decentralized governance for Genius Yield. In the second phase, Clarity Protocol will develop the required structure for Genius X to operate as a DAO.

Laurent Bellandi, the Co-Founder & Association President at Genius Yield said:

“The aim of modern-age trustless DAO structures is to break the old rules of corporate hierarchies. Smart contracts on Cardano already make this possible. We are on track on our roadmap, and will further decentralize our protocol’s governance through a DAO. To achieve this critical milestone, we are pleased to partner with Clarity Protocol who will create the Genius Yield and Genius X core DAO infrastructure. On implementation, $GENS or $GENSX holders will, at any time, vote on proposals to determine the path the protocol takes without central coordination.”

The first versions of the Genius Yield and Genius X DAOs will be audited by Tweag or CertiK, two top blockchain security firms. In the first half of 2022, Tweag, Genius Yield’s technical partner, audited smart contracts governing the yet-to-be-released Genius DEX. CertiK also conducted penetration tests on the on-chain trading ramp.

By collaborating with Clarity Protocol, Genius Yield is establishing the foundation for the eventual achievement of one of its critical milestones: devolving control to its users and operating as a DAO. In a mark of decentralization, $GENS holders will have voting rights and decide the development trajectory of the project by voting on proposals.

The Clarity Protocol is on a mission of building a no-code infrastructure for creating, managing, and participating in DAOs on Agora. Agora is a library of Plutus scripts and tools that will anchor decentralized governance in Cardano and allow users to create customized DAOs. Through this partnership, the Clarity Protocol will quickly deliver on its mission of providing the requisite DAO infrastructure for the fast-growing Cardano ecosystem. Their goals also mirror that of Genius Yield of allowing everyone, including users without blockchain or crypto knowledge, to benefit from the powers of smart contracts and DeFi. Clarity DAO actively provides tools and infrastructure to lower technical barriers, allowing anyone to create a DAO and participate in decentralized governance on Cardano. By partnering with Genius Yield and Genius X, Clarity DAO has increased its industry expertise and will unlock valuable resources for projects entering its ecosystem.
