What is Ampleforth (AMPL)?
Ampleforth (AMPL) is a protocol, which is a digital asset protocol for money – smart goods. Specifically, Ampleforth Protocol will receive rate predictions from reliable sources. They then give this information to Ample Token holders.
AMPL token, designed to be used as collateral for decentralized banking systems. As well as an alternative base currency for the crypto economy. AMPL acts as an ERC-20 token on top of the Ethereum blockchain.
Ampleforth (AMPL) can be considered as a general commodity currency. Its supply can be changed to meet the needs of the economy.
The Ampleforth protocol’s implementation of the opposite economic policy sets it apart from other protocols. If the demand for AMPL increases, the supply of tokens also increases to compensate for the price changes. This contradictory nature is desirable from an investment perspective, as it gives AMPL a low correlation with BTC and ETH.
Ampleforth’s goal is to bring commodity money without being limited to items that have limited supply and issuance, like Bitcoin and gold.
How does AMPL work?
AMPL is a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, but there’s one twist: supply changes every day
AMPL numbers are subject to change per day
The AMPL protocol automatically adjusts the supplies according to the needs. When the price is high, the wallet balance increases. When the price is low, the wallet balance decreases.
Never be diluted by supply inflation
AMPL is undiluted. Supply adjustments are universally and accordingly applied across all wallet balances. This means your percentage of network ownership remains fixed.
This solves the problem of diversification
Today’s cryptocurrencies are dangerously correlated. AMPL’s unique incentives allow it to separate from Bitcoin’s price model. This reduces systemic risk by adding diversity to a homogeneous ecosystem.
This solves the inelastic problem
Like precious metals, today’s fixed-supply cryptocurrencies are susceptible to sudden demand shocks and cannot be used to denote complex contracts. As a result, sophisticated economies cannot be built on top of them. The AMPL is the simplest direct solution to the inelastic supply problem.
The core utility of the AMPL is to serve as a medium of exchange. Ampleforth can scale its supply to meet the needs of billions of users. But it is also possible to limit the supply contract if it has only 1,000 users.
AMPL in portfolio theory: As an anti-censorship asset with unique traces of volatility, incompatible with stocks, commodities, or other digital assets allowing opportunities to diversify.
AMPL as ‘Coin Trader’: When the price of AMPL moves from 1 USD onwards, the protocol decreases and increases supply, creating short and long-term trading opportunities that do not exist for any other digital asset.
AMPL token as a store of value.
The AMPL token as a currency: The price is stable, but not a stable currency. In the long run, Ampleforth aims for the AMPL to be global money. It is an independent currency, not limited by collateral, and it has a stable price point – a single important set of features.

Commodities such as gold, silver,.. cannot be met when the demand changes, making them unable to replace bank currencies. Also, one of the closest examples is Bitcoin (BTC) – the price is always volatile.
To solve the problem, the Ampleforth team builds an integrated commodity to provide price information. In other words, AMPL is trying to create an ideal, independent, and fair currency, to meet all monetary functions today.
