Token Description & Project Background

Ribbon Finance is a decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol that automates the yield generation process. Users can boost their investment returns while simplifying their overall yield farming activities by way of Ribbon's automated option selling strategies, generating revenue from the premium gained from selling options (The Defiant).

The RBN token was airdropped to early community supporters in May of 2021. 

RBN is the protocol’s governance token.

Originally announced in August of 2021, Ribbon V2 focused on the decentralization of Ribbon's "vaults."

Ribbon, per Cryptopedia, had earlier launched with two primary vaults: Theta Vaults, Ribbon's main offering, allowing investors to automate relatively lower-risk "covered call" strategies which can earn significant yields on ETH or wBTC; and Treasury Vaults, taking Theta Vaults' premise and applying it to decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs).

The core vault runs a covered call strategy and reinvests yield earned back into the vault, compounding depositor yields over time.

The protocol currently runs on Ethereum mainnet, Avalanche and Solana.

Ribbon was co-founded by Julian Koh, who is a former Coinbase software engineer, according to LinkedIn. The project was announced in February 2021, according to a Medium post by the team.
