Token Description & Project Background

Reserve Rights (RSR) is the utility token of the Reserve Protocol, a stablecoin platform on Ethereum. 

RSR serves two main purposes for the Reserve Protocol: a) insuring Reserve stablecoins through staking; b) governing them through proposing & voting on changes to their configuration. 

Reserve’s flagship stablecoin is RSV, a dollar-pegged asset backed by TUSD, PAX and USDC, protocol documentation explained. Within the context of RSV, the Reserve Rights (RSR) tokens are used to stabilize the token’s USD-peg and also to maintain collateralized reserves.

The protocol also allows for the issuance of RTokens, stable-value assets secured by an underlying basket of ERC20 tokens. In theory, anyone can create an RToken provided they have enough funds to back it.

Staking RSR to a specific RToken entitles the token holder to various cash flows generated by the stablecoin.

According to project documentation, RTokens can generate revenue by lending out their underlying collateral, collecting transaction fees, and also though revenue sharing agreements with collateral issuers.

Governance is controlled by the RToken’s creators who ultimately determine the monetary reward dished off to RSR stakers.

The RSR token was launched publicly in May 2019. 

Reserve Protocol was founded by Nevin Freeman (Co-Founder & CEO) and Matt Elder (Co-Founder & CTO).
