What are Bonds?

The bonds system is crucial for treasury growth and sustainability of the Redeem process. It allows users to mint new $NTR by buying $bNTR with underlying assets such as $NTR itself or $wETH for example. $bNTR are designed so they are cheaper than the current market price, incentivizing users to mint them. Neutron bond system allow you 2 strategies: 1. Stake your $bNTR and redeem at a special price while getting staking rewards. 2. Convert your $bNTR for $NTR and trade them on the market or stake them.

Why Bond?

Because it allows you to buy $NTR at discounted price, Bonds will not be available at any time. These must be in a limited number,.

$bNTR will go on sale at certain times and only by a little part of the supply.

1. When the price of $NTR is $500, and you have $1,000 USD. With that cash amount money, you are able to go and buy 2 $NTR from market.

2. For example, with bond you'll be able to buy $bNTR at 250$ which means 4 $bNTR for $1,000 USD.

3. Over the next 3 days, you can convert those $bNTR to $NTR or stake them and wait for a redeem.
