Business Proposal of
WaykiChain Governance Coin WGRT
I. Policy and Dividend
On October 24th, Central Politburo of the Communist Party of China stated the important role of integrated application of blockchain technology in new technological innovations and industrial changes. China will take blockchain as an important breakthrough for independent innovation of core technologies, clarify the main direction, increase its input to target on core technologies, and accelerate the development pace of blockchain technology and industrial innovation.
The application of blockchain technology has been extended to digital finance, IoT, Smart Manufacturing, supply chain management, digital asset trading and other various fields. At present, the world’s major powers are all accelerating development of blockchain technology. China has a good foundation in blockchain field. It is necessary to accelerate the development of blockchain technology and industrial innovation, and actively promote the integration development of blockchain, economy and society. It is necessary to promote collaborative research, conduct breakthrough of core technologies, provide safe and controllable technical support for blockchain applications, strengthen the research on blockchain standardization, enhance China’s international discursive power and rule-making power, build industrial ecosystem to allow blockchain technology play a more important role in building network-powerful country, developing digital economy, and supporting economic and social development.

III. Brief of WaykiChain stablecoin WUSD and governance coin WGRT
Stablecoin WUSD introduction
At present, in blockchain and digital currency fields, in addition to investment, investors also need a media for asset preservation and daily payment and pricing, so stablecoin is urgently needed by the market. However, those stablecoin pledged by fiat money (e.g. USDT) have been criticized by the market for its regulatory uncertainty and operational opacity. Therefore, stablecoin based on blockchain digital currency is generally recognized as the direction of future stablecoin.
Bitshares(BTS) created the first generation of decentralized stablecoin bitCNY, but due to the economic model of its dual-coin system (pledge coin and stablecoin), the vicious circle of asset liquidation occurred when the mortgage assets falling, the stablecoin pledge system is not really accepted by the market.
MakerDAO created the second generation of decentralized stablecoin DAI. A three-token model (pledged coin, stablecoin, and governance coin) was used in the MakerDAO system. The model has a certain improvement in risk resistance compared to Bitshares, but DAI is particularly limited in its application.
1. Based on Ethereum development, MakerDAO is very low in efficiency and user experience. It cannot stand high frequency operation when coin price fluctuating. 2. DAI is an ERC20 token issued based on the Ethereum contract. When users transfer DAI, they also need to hold a certain ETH as transfer fee, which increases the threshold for ordinary users to learn and use. 3. MakerDAO only sets a 150% margin line and a 130% liquidation line mechanism on the risk defense system, and only way to maintain the anchor value of stablecoin is adjusting interest rate, so that the value of DAI has been less than one dollar for a long time.
WaykiChain’s stablecoin system has been improved on the basis of MakerDAO from both economic models and technical mechanisms. It is the most advanced third-generation stablecoin system in the market. In the early stage, it was generated by pledging WICC. After the completion of the BTC and ETH cross-chain at the end of 2019, it can be generated by pledging BTC, ETH and other mainstream coins. In order to maintain the stability of its value, the system must ensure that there is enough decentralized asset to pledge as endorsement behind each issued WUSD. Its advantages are as follows:
3.1 Four major risk prevention mechanisms make the system more stable: WaykiChain creates the world’s first risk reserve mechanism. In the process of declining the value of pledged assets, the system reserves the funds required for liquidation in advance in order to close the CDP when the assets are insolvent. Excessive pledge at the time of opening the position, timely liquidation when the pledge rate is lowered, risk reserve compensation when the assets are insolvent, and the melting of the Black Swan Event. The four mechanisms ensure the stability of the stablecoin system.
3.2 Faster transfer allows higher efficiency: WUSD is the bottom layer asset of WaykiChain public chain, and WaykiChain TPS is 3200, ranking NO.1 in the mainstream public chains. This makes the transfer speed of WUSD very fast, only 3 seconds to arrive.
3.3 Self-paying fee brings better usability: WUSD is developed at the bottom layer of the public chain, WUSD can be used as a transaction fee when transferring. It does not need to pay BTC or ETH like other stablecoins e.g. USDT, DAI, etc. as transaction fee. WUSD is the only stablecoin that can achieve this.
3.4 Decentralized mechanism developed on the bottom layer is more secure: stablecoin system of WaykiChain is developed on the bottom layer of the public chain, using a decentralized oracle price feeding system. Compared to MakerDAO’s stablecoin on the contract layer, it is safer and more reliable, and is not easy to be attacked.
3.5 By increasing BTC as a collateral asset, the market value can be greater: because the fluctuation of BTC price is lower than other digital assets, WUSD is more stable in security, and the liquidity that can be pledged is theoretically up to $100 billion, far exceeding the billions of DAI.
The relationship between governance coin WGRT and stablecoin system:
WGRT is the abbreviation of governance coin. It is short for “WaykiChain Great”, and also represents “WaykiChain”, “Governance”, “Rights”, and “Treasure”. WGRT plays a role in regulation and governance in the whole system.
In the operating process of the stablecoin system, the interest generated by pledging WICC and generating WUSD and the fine generated when the bad CDP is liquidated will be automatically destroyed by the system on DEX. Therefore, when the system is active and the pledged asset is large, the total amount of governance coin will be continuously repurchased and destroyed. As a result, the value of governance coin will continue to rise. (The specific adjustment mechanism of WGRT is written in WUSD Whitepaper, also please refer to cdp.waykichain.com ).
The coin similar to WGRT is MKR. The current total volume of issued DAI (stablecoin) is about 700 million RMB, and the market value of its governance coin MKR is 4 billion RMB. It can be seen that under the economic model, the market value of governance coin is very optimistic in the market.
IV. Broad Future and Application Scenarios of WUSD
As can be seen from the economic model of governance coin (WGRT), as long as stablecoin (WUSD) system is continuously applied, its governance coin (WGRT) will be destroyed by deflation at the same time, resulting in price rise. WaykiChain team is committed to creating the WUSD application scenarios, including but not limited to:
4.1 Cross-Border Finance
WUSD as stablecoin can be used as a channel for cross-border financial products to deposit. Huatong Securities (a licensed securities firm), which was incubated by WaykiChain, has opened a new trading function using WUSD for Hong Kong and UK stocks. Users can use WUSD to invest in Hong Kong stocks or US stocks in China or other regions, greatly enriching their investment options. WaykiChain will also work with foreign property companies, such as Vietnam, to link up local properties and allow users in other countries to subscribe for the right to benefit from the property. This makes it possible for users from different countries who could not invest in overseas real estate to make cross-border investment.
Most financial derivatives are settled in cash, while WUSD can transfer value through parity .Nowadays, the infrastructure of modern Banks, such as CME and CBOE, relies heavily on high-cost intermediaries, such as clearing houses, and use fiat money to settle contracts. Assets denominated in dollars are needed when these complex operations are performed on the chain through Smart Contracts. For the foreseeable future, these derivatives can be settled on the chain through stablecoin, minimizing friction costs and eliminating the need for centralized institutions. In the current financial market framework, these centralized institutions provide trust between market participants. Similarly, stablecoin can be used for decentralized lending.
4.3 Cross-Border Payment/Cross-Border Transfer/Foreign Exchange Acceptance
As a payment tool, WUSD can effectively eliminate the risk of price volatility. Compared with current banking facilities (currently it takes 3 days for international bank transfer), cryptocurrency transactions can provide better user experience and significant efficiency improvement. Currently, WUSD transactions can be confirmed quickly (with an average time of 3 seconds). Especially for the scenario of small cross-border payment, the transfer speed of WUSD and the advantages of low fees will be further amplified. For example, WaykiChain will work with gaming platforms and online monetization platform, open up their payment channels for those with a global communities. Currently, the cross-border transfer platform used by these platforms charges up to 5%~23%, while with WUSD, the fee will be reduced to less than 0.1%.
4.4 Decentralized Exchange Pricing Unit
WaykiChain will work with AEX (formerly as the world’s largest counterfeit currency exchange) to develop a decentralized Exchange that will provide digital currency and blockchain users with a more secure, efficient and transparent platform for trading digital assets. WUSD will be the primary unit of account and the base currency of the Exchange. In the future, it will cooperate with more first-tier Exchanges.
4.5 Ecosystem Construction
WUSD is developed at the bottom layer of WaykiChain, and any Smart Contract based on WaykiChain can be easily invoked, using WUSD as the main coin of Smart Contract applications. This expands the application scenarios of WUSD from the business developed and expanded by the core team of WaykiChain to more broader possibilities, which can be applied to more WaykiChain DApps in the future. Using stablecoin as the medium for DApp to deposit will make the DApp more acceptable to non-digital currency investors. Because there is no risk of value fluctuation in their using process.
In the future, as the completion of cross chain of BTC and ETH, WaykiChain plans to apply WUSD stablecoin to much broader scenarios, such as indirect investment in overseas real estate, cross-border real estate or securities mortgage lending. With blockchain distributed accounting, tamper-free features, and Smart Contracts automatically clearing and allocating due dates, the use of WaykiChain stablecoin will be increasingly abundant.
V. Operation and Marketing Plan of WGRT
The total amount of WGRT issued is 21 billion, with the initial face value of $0.01, of which 30% will be directed to private placement. The part collected by private placement will be used for stablecoin system risk fund, and the part will be used for technical research and development of the team; getting listed on first-tier Exchanges; introducing European and American elites with international background to build an international leading team image. Continuous international offline marketing meeting publicity and brand investment; setting up cooperation opportunities with government and the large organizations , further enhancing the brand image; capital preparation for the next bull market in digital currencies.
15% of the placement is reserved for the team development, and this division will lock up for 5 years; 15% for large-scale resource exchange; 20% for the marketing budget of stablecoin project, such as Airdrop to BTC, ETH, HT, BNB and other popular currency holders to exchange their community traffic, or reward participants of WaykiChain offline activities; 10% will be given away as reward through WaykiChain Super Node voting, 10% will be airdropped to WaykiChain holders and lockup users.
