The protocol is inspired by the Finnish goddess of moon, Kuutar. The name is derived from the Finnish word for moon, KUU. Kuutar is the Finnish goddess of the moon, daughter of the virgin spirit of the Air, Ilmatar. It allowed a teal to lay its egg on her knee as she floated in the abyss. As the egg fell, it formed the universe: the white of the egg being the Moon and the yolk, the Sun. Along with her sister äivätär, the goddess of the Sun, they are the goddesses of destiny.
Just like how Kuutar watches over humanity, KUU is designed to keep the Avalanche DeFi ecosystem safe by allowing on-chain liquidation and arbitrage opportunities to be captured by Keepers. In effect, KUU will act as a backstop liquidity fund for DeFi protocols.
