A decentralised team works across three independent entities to ensure that Anji stays true to its purpose as we advance and evolve.
The Foundation wants to see a thriving community of tokens, investors, and charities all benefiting from being early adopters of DeFi.
The Foundation believes the future is decentralised and it only makes sense to be a part of this fundamental change in society.
The Foundation believes that empathy is a key trait of being human. They approach all problem-solving by understanding the other.
The Foundation is excited about creating new technologies and approaches to solving the problems currently existing in DeFi.
The Anji Foundation is an independent standards body that oversees and supervises the advancement of Anji and the Anji ecosystem.
Founded in the fervour of the token economy in early 2021, a question was asked if we can elevate these tokens to a place where a new kind of investors could exist—an investor that wants to take full advantage and yield the opportunities from DeFi, but also would like to have a positive impact on the world.
Our first token, SafePanda, gave us the necessary start to bring AnjiEco to life. From there, we have developed our utility token Bamboo and various dApps and services on our AnjiSwap platform.
With our fresh rewards token (AnjiToken), the growth of the ecosystem and the exciting new products in the pipeline from AnjiLabs, AnjiEco will bring the token economy a stable platform where investors can truly vote with their money.
The first incarnation of Anji allowed users to buy and sell the SafePanda token on PancakeSwap with its protocol that would Swap & Liquify on transaction. This has now been upgraded and developed into a more competent and matured token. The heart of the ecosystem, AnjiToken is the world's first smart dividends protocol, bringing rewards from AnjiEco's growth. The Foundation Phase also saw the delivery of AnjiSwap, our simple, yet powerful platform for all DeFi tasks to be performed.
As much as the Foundation Phase was about the first crucial technology developments, it was also about building a community and getting people involved in creating the ecosystem of the future. AnjiEco has grown from a small group of enthusiasts to a growing community.
Following on from the Foundation Phase, the Decentralisation Phase of Anji is a period of growth and development for the ecosystem.
The Decentralisation Phase encompasses the critical early steps in AnjiEco’s journey to optimize decentralization—and like any first steps, these will be gradual but significant.
During the Foundation Phase, the ecosystem was federated; but as the Decentralisation Phase progresses, more tokens will be added to the ecosystem seeking adoption in the token economy. With this growth, we will see a drive in development to have the necessary platforms for the AnjiEco community to make important decisions, like the recipients and their token receiving the AnjiPool. AnjiEco will become more decentralised and enjoy greater communal and robustness as a result.
The Decentralisation Phase represents the natural maturation of the ecosystem, making it more useful, rewarding, and valuable for users new and old. It’s also about preparing for the future. This phase will set the stage for a fully distributed ecosystem, and an entirely new application ecosystem with even greater things to come in the following phases.
With further development, the Smart Contract Phase represents a big step forward in capability for the Anji Ecosystem. Where the previous phase decentralises the economy, this phase provides the ability to create and add tokens on AnjiEco's solid foundation of high-assurance development.
The work for this phase will already be under way in parallel with the Decentralised Phase, and when complete will allow users from technical and non-technical backgrounds to create and deploy tokens and protocols in the Anji Ecosystem. One of the goals for the Smart Contract Phase has been the creation of Blue Sky, a purpose-built social staking platform that allows charities and causes to create a profile and investors to stake with a rewarding 10% APR.
The Smart Contract Phase also encompasses work to make AnjiEco accessible to wider audiences via “aToken,” supporting communities with no previous technical knowledge to create a token and deploy on the BNB Smart Chain (BSC).
The Smart Contract Phase represents a step change in the abilities of AnjiEco, opening the gateway to charities with low effort from their resources and the ability to add new smart contracts and tokens to the ecosystem.
The Scaling Phase of AnjiEco is an era of optimisation, improving the scalability and interoperability of the ecosystem. Whereas previous phases focused on decentralisation and new functionality, this phase is about driving the adoption of the ecosystem into the world.
One of the core developments of this phase will be the introduction of other blockchains and making the ecosystem multi-chain, allowing for investors to meet the ecosystem in their familiar territory.
This will provide a network infrastructure with the capability to scale in a sustainable, secure way and better-support any future preferences in which networks best suit our investors and ecosystem. AnjiEco’s approach to development allows for fluidity and future developments in DeFi.
At this stage with our diverse ecosystem of tokens and investors alike, all using the dApps and platforms created in the ecosystem, the Anji Foundation will continue to bring DeFi to the people with low-barrier entry points for new investors to take the opportunity to vote with their money and ultimately “invest in something good.”
