Over-Collateralized, Decentralized & Transparent

A sustainable protocol that enables the creation of stable value digital assets.

The mission

Mento’s mission is to enable the development of natural-capital backed stable assets that strengthen communities, preserve the environment, and help bring prosperity to all. Now more than ever, the world needs transparent, open-source, and permissionless stable assets.


Core building blocks

Decentralisation
Decentralization

The protocol is comprised of self-executing governable smart contracts. Anyone can contribute to & control is in the hands of the community.

Natural Backed Capital
Environmental Sustainability

By introducing natural capital-backed assets to the reserve, the usage of Mento stables can contribute to preserving natural resources.

Diversification
Diversification

Diversification of the reserve collateral helps reduce risk and improves the overall protocol stability.

Transparency
Transparency

Trust begins with transparency and the mento protocol is built with transparency from the ground up. All code is opensource and the reserve holdings are publicly available.


Fully backed by the Mento reserve

The Mento reserve is publicly available for all to see. By using crypto assets in the reserve, all transactions can happen on-chain, decentralised and in a fully-auditable way.

Driving the future of stable assets

Since its launch, Mento has worked as intended by providing stability without significant depegs. However, increasing stability further should not be the sole focus of future developments.

To better support the sustainable growth of Mento stables, new innovations are required to increase the protocol's robustness and provide a solid foundation for stable assets as use cases scale.

Mento 2.0 is the next iteration of the protocol that will define what it means to be a stable asset platform.

Mento is live on CELO

Mento's home is and always will be CELO. The CELO blockchain is a mobile-first layer 1 with the mission to build a financial system that creates the conditions for prosperity for everyone. In the same way that Celo can be the home to other stable assets, we envision a future where Mento assets live on different blockchains.
