Key Terms in the GumBall Protocol Ecosystem
gNFT - an NFT minted on GumBall Protocol
GBT- GumBall Token, ERC20 token specific to a collection. 1 of 2 token reserves in collection's bonding curve.
- rGBT = reserve GBT, equal to aGBT
- aGBT = actual GBT available for trading in the bonding curve
- cGBT = circulating GBT, GBT held outside the bonding curve
- tsGBT = total supply GBT, equal to rGBT + cGBT
- buGBT = burned amount of GBT, destroyed when gNFT is converted to GBT
- rbuGBT = burned amount of rGBT, destroyed in correlation to buGBT
Base Asset (ex ETH) - second token reserve in a collections bonding curve, allows for instant liquidity
- vETH = virtual ETH, placeholder ETH used to set bonding curve floor price
- aETH = actual ETH , real ETH in the bonding curve avaialble for trading
- bETH = borrowed ETH, a placeholder to track the amount of ETH outside the bonding curve
- rETH = reserve ETH, equal to (vETH + aETH + bETH)
- ETHin = ETH sent to contract
- ETHout = ETH received from contract
GumBall Factory = The GumBall Factory contract is where collections are created
ERC20 Bonding Curve = The bonding curve is a mechanism for distributing GBT while maintaining guaranteed liquidity for circulating GBT. GBT is bought and sold from/to the bonding curve.
GumBar = The GumBar contract is the staking contract. Users may deposit to stake GBT or gNFT, which earns yield in the form of GBT and the Base Token (ETH).
GumBall Machine = The GumBall Machine contract converts GBT<->gNFTs. This is the mechanism granting every NFT in the GumBall ecosystem guaranteed liquidity.
