How to Add Liquidity for Post-Capitalism with BREAD

In this article, we’ll show you how to add liquidity to the Breadchain managed BREAD/DAI liquidity pool on Uniswap V3 through Arrakis Finance. The Arrakis liquidity pool provides two core functions for the Breadchain Solidarity Primitive: allowing users to obtain bread without utilizing the Breadchain Crowdstaking Application, and protecting BREAD from outside speculation. In utilizing the liquidity pool, you are able to provide liquidity for others to swap BREAD with other tokens at a very tight price range on Uniswap V3, limiting your own risks from speculative price swings. Giving the ability for other users to swap BREAD helps keep BREAD in circulation so that they don’t need to burn their BREAD.Minting BREAD with DAI is great, but allowing users the capability of swapping any token for BREAD gives Breadchain more flexibility in how it reaches more users and help sustain those who get paid in BREAD.

How to Use the Breadchain Crowdstaking Application

Below are step-by-step instructions detailing how to bake $BREAD- the digital local currency and core funding mechanism of Breadchain- and use it to begin crowdstaking on behalf of the network. You can learn more about how the application works under the hood here. Additionally, if you prefer, you can watch this video to see a demonstration of the application in action.

Solidarity Primitives: The Breadchain Crowdstaking Application

One of the major problems with our economy today is that the needs of working people are subordinated to the pursuit of profit. Within blockchain-based governance mechanisms, standard token voting practices rely on the neoliberal notion of “voting with your dollar.” Like the capitalist market, this means wealthy investors can simply purchase large amounts of tokens on the market in order to hoard voting power. This system allows these capitalist robber barons, or “whales” to greatly influence the outcome of proposals submitted on “decentralized” applications. In other words, financial power becomes directly correlated with political power.

Our Way Out: Dual Power and the Future of Organizing

How can revolutionary change be achieved today? Many web3 evangelists will tell you that the tools now at our disposal hold the answer. However, much of the web3 landscape is shaping up to look a lot like what we’ve seen before.

Collaboration at Scale: Blockchain and Mutual Aid

There is no denying that web3 has been heavily influenced by capitalist logic (ie, profit maximization, rent-seeking, etc.). Because of this, there’s an overwhelming bias that blockchains are a hyper-individualistic technical media dependent on financial speculation - but this is not what blockchains really are. They can more accurately be seen as permissionless networks of computers and users that collaborate with one another around a distributed database of economic information by reaching consensus. In this light, blockchains are more like platforms for economic cooperation of which many types of partnerships are possible.
