Ampleforth Wiki

Ampleforth Wiki

The Art of creating an unbreakable stable-ish curve The Beauty of dividing market cap and price The Power of providing stable debt denomination without a stable currency

I made this wiki to collect resources about Ampleforth, papers that influenced its design, and foundational books about monetary theory.

Furthermore, this wiki also contains links to articles about decentralized governance.

Therefore, not everything in here is directly related to Ampleforth. I see this resources as reading list to fully appreciate the beauty of Ample’s monetary policy.

If you know of resources that you think are missing here, hit me up on Twitter or the Ampleforth Official Discord! 💯
