Welcome to HERO Documentation

About the HERO

The HERO is a new kind of blockchain-based digital currency and an economical experiment. It has all the advantages of crypto currencies (fast, cheap transaction, no middlemen, counterpart-party risk free, decentralized, accessible, etc.) but, unlike others, HERO is supposed to have a more predictable price. This predictability constitutes a stable, USD-pegged, component and a yearly capital appreciation of 5%. This fixed yearly capital appreciation isn’t quite like interest as it does not pay out HEROs every once in a while, but instead, the backing collateral that supports the HERO has to grow by at least 5% per year while HEROs are options for this collateral.
