Protocol Owned Liquidity

On decentralized exchanges, protocol-owned liquidity is a novel method for providing tokens with liquidity. Rather than depending on market incentives to provide liquidity to liquidity pools, the protocol-owned liquidity model employs a "bonding" mechanism.
Nemesis PRO has always held a substantial amount/supply of the NMSP liquidity through the bonding mechanism. This ensures that users and protocols are always able to exchange NMSP regardless of market and/or external conditions.
The Treasury of Nemesis PRO maintains NMSP liquidity on decentralized exchanges. With RBS (Range-Bound Stability), the equilibrium between reserves and liquidity is determined by an algorithm with the purpose of optimizing liquidity and resources for resilience and long-term market stability.

The Traditional Form of LP vs. POL

Traditional form of LP
A. High emission of tokens to incentivize liquidity providers B. Gets liquidity from outside providers and pays continuous bribes.
Acquire LP tokens via bonding
Impact & Effect
A. Stagnant or downward pressure on token price due to inflationary pressure B. Continuous time and resources required to secure liquidity
Emission from bonding can be modeled and numerous variables within one's disposal, giving a significant degree of control
A. Relatively maintenance-free once the bond market has been created. B. Ability to let the bond market run until the desired level of POL is achieved. C. Ability to create upward price pressure via boosting the buyback mechanism. D. Provide an alternative source of token rewards for ongoing and upcoming pools and features.


  • Renting liquidity is costly, while POL provides an extra revenue stream in the form of swap fees issued by AMMs.
  • In times of market distress, liquidity providers have a significant likelihood of withdrawing funds from the pool (which is when liquidity is most needed). Protocol-owned liquidity stops this from happening because the protocol won't reduce its own liquidity and avoid a downward spiral of the price of the token.
