DFD is the Governance token of the DefiDollar protocol. It will serve two primary functions:
* Whitelist & remove peaks
* Assign peak ceilings similar to the ones in Maker Vaults to balance the index
* Fine tune parameters like redemption fee within a peak
* Decide on the distribution of the protocol income
* DFD will be called in to act as the ultimate backstop against volatility. Similar to the fashion in which MKR acts as the last line of defence for DAI.
