The Compound token model: how it can expand beyond governance

Quick Take

  • The Compound team has recently removed admin privileges to their smart contracts and the protocol is governed fully by COMP token holders.
  • 42% of COMP supply will be distributed to Compound’s users (borrowers and lenders on the platform) gradually over the next four years.
  • Initially, COMP token holders will have governance rights over Compound’s smart contracts but no financial rights (to token burns or dividends). These rights can be modified by COMP token holders.
