Minting is the secondary value accrual strategy of Ragnarok. When users mint RGK tokens, they are actually selling their assets in order to buy a bond from the protocol. Minting actions are a cross between a fixed income product, a futures contract, and an option. The protocol quotes the minter with terms for a trade at a future date. These terms include a predefined amount of RGK the minter will mint and the time when vesting is complete. The bond becomes redeemable as it vests.
