Within the CERES ecosystem, a dual asset token structure refers to the different financial tools: CERES Coins and CERES Tokens. Single structure ICOs fail because they are meant to act as both transactional vehicles (to make purchases) and investment vehicles (to hopefully lead to financial gain). The reasons single asset vehicles often fail is due to the “velocity problem.” In short, as the value of the transaction vehicle increases, the value of the investment vehicle drops. This makes the issuing company prioritize one function over the other. A dual asset token structure allows each tool to function autonomously.
CERES Tokens acquire value from CERES Coin transaction fees and gains from mortgage-backed security investments. CERES Coins function as cash within the CERES universe.
