MCG Tokenomics

Base on the current performance of hot tokens during the DeFi Summer time, it can be concluded that pure governance tokens are hard to be recognized by the market. The MicroChains team deeply understand the importance of token issuance to a successful project, therefore the following token economic scenarios are designed

1. Token Allocation

Seed Round: 8% for early-stage team building, R&D, auditing, office and future operations and other expenses . It’s unlocked over 18 months. 9.9% unlocked in the first month and linear vesting for the rest in 17 months;
Validator Incentives: 3.5%. Unlocking the reserve 4 months after TGE and releasing incentives after the launch of KYC validator program
Public: 1%. 50%TGE, 50% second month.
Liquidity: 1 % for adding liquidity in DEX after token issuance. Fully liquid after the launch of cross-chain incentive (TBD).
Marketing: 7 % for marketing and publicity. It will be unlocked in 12 months, 28% unlocked in the first month, 8% unlocked per month in the next 7 months, and the rest unlocked over the last 4 months, 4% in each month.
Cross-chain Mining: 25 %. It is unlocked linearly over 25 months, 16% in the first month; halved in the 2nd to 4th months, 8% in each month; second halving in the 5th to 13th months, 4% in each month; and third halving in the 14th to 25th months, 2% in each month. The incentive may not be used up every month, and it may accumulate. It depends on if there is an incentive scenario. The actual usage situation will be regularly public in community.
Liquidity Mining: 25%. It is linearly unlocked over 25 months, and 4 % unlocked every month. The incentive may not be used up every month, and it may accumulate. It depends on if there is an incentive scenario. The actual usage situation will be regularly public in community.
Staking: 5%. Encouraging users to stake MCG and get incentives. The unlock plan is the same as Cross-chain Mining.
