As we prepare for the upcoming launches of PrimeDAO’s products, we’re doing some housekeeping to keep our communication with the community more flexible, open, and dynamic. Here are some of the changes:
Our newsletter has a new framework: We will beam you a newsletter with deeper insights whenever there is a new product or event, while keeping Prime Times, formerly bi-weekly, as a monthly recap.
PrimeDao’s Discord Group has new subchannels for each relevant topic of each product. If you aren’t there already, join our discord. Do not hesitate to ask if you need a guide-through.
Prime Rating meets dHegde
On March 24th PrimeDao soft-launched a pool in dHedge. The protocol is an innovative, decentralized, permissionless, non-custodial, trustless management tool of Hedge funds. In other words, dHedge enables anyone to be or subscribe to a hedge fund anytime.
The most exciting part is that Prime’s Defi Pool on dHedge is the first use case for Prime Rating, as the pool utilizes the Smart Contract and Fundamental reports to identify and position into the best possible quality of DeFi protocols. The pool is skewed towards the DeFi protocols that received an A+ rating.
Since its inception, the pool has attracted over $140 thousand in value and generated 27% returns after fees. The pool charges a performance fee of 10% on gains made by the pool. Because of the good returns, the Prime DeFi pool qualifies for dHedge performance mining, earning Prime DeFi pool investors 22% APY in dHedge’s native DHT token!
DeFi Prime Time NFTs
We want to thank everyone who took part in the first-ever DeFi Prime Time. The event reached the full capacity of one hundred attendees and another hundred were spying from the keyhole. The program consisted of a deep dive into PrimeDao’s research areas, and the products we are developing based on them. As a souvenir, those who made it into the rooms PrimeDAO has minted exclusive NFTs for each presentation attended. If you have attended, you can access them at Unique One.
If you missed it this time, do not worry, we have compiled for you all the presentations on a Youtube playlist:
Blockchain, Booze and Decentralized Rating
PrimeDao Steward Luuk Weber went live into a conversation with Don Ho from Quantstamp and Santiago Roel from Parafi at Blockchain & Booze. For an hour and twenty, they went into a deep discussion ranging from metrics to rate DeFi projects to Web 3.0 as a whole. B&B is a casual weekly meetup with “some of the most interesting and accomplished individuals in the blockchain industry” to discuss a particular topic. The event is hosted by the leading conference & expo L.A Blockchain Summit produced by Draper Goren Holm.

Our goal is to produce and maintain a community-owned set of products and services everyone can access and benefit from — both early and mass adopters.
