Arrow Protocol Introduction

Arrow Protocol allows individuals, protocols, and DAOs on Solana to launch staking derivatives which redirect yield to a different address. Arrow tokenizes your yield-generating assets into a staking derivative so you can focus on attracting liquidity, not integrating obscure IDLs. Potential use cases include: - Lending protocols. A lender may take Saber LPs as collateral. By using Arrow, the lending protocol only needs to accept their Arrow for the corresponding LP token as collateral, and earns Saber and Sunny tokens for doing so. - Crates. As Crates may only hold tokens, they cannot directly integrate with farming pools. This tokenization allows the yields of underlying assets to get redirected to the creator of the Crate, or to the Crate itself, allowing for extremely composable yield aggregation. - Community fundraising. A community can pool its yield-generating assets via an Arrow to help fund its operations. As these derivatives are tokens, the community has a very simple cap table they can use to ensure that its members are staking a minimum amount. - Charitable organizations. One could create an Arrow which redirects yield to a charity, allowing users to donate to a cause without needing to spend any money. Notable prior work in this space includes rTrees, a DAO which plants trees from DAI yield. Arrow's first integration is with the Sunny Aggregator. As Sunny is built on top of Quarry, we expect Sunny to integrate with any future Quarry pools. At the time of writing, this will allow users to redirect Sunny and Saber yields.
