mStable has a protocol token, Meta (MTA), with three core functions:
To act as the ultimate source of re-collateralisation
To coordinate decentralised governance
To incentivise bootstrapping of mASSET liquidity, utility and a community of Governors
In return for performing these functions and taking on the risk of partial liquidation in a peg loss event, governors can choose for Meta tokens to earn income from fees collected in the platform and interest generated on its underlying assets. This will be decided in future once mStable is sufficiently decentralised.
