Ethos Gitbook

Token Allocation

ETHOS tokens will be used to incentivize usage of the app. There will be a maximum supply of 5,000,000,000 (5 Billion) ETHOS ERC-20 tokens, divided up to reward usage, token liquidity, participation (airdrop), education, and contribution to the ecosystem. Specifically, the tokens will be allocated as follows:
1) Usage Incentives: 35%
o Staking (over 10 years): 12%
o In app usage rewards: 10%
o Trading Incentives: 7%
o New Incentives: 6% [1]
2) Liquidity Incentives: 26%
o Liquidity mining over 5 years: 10% [2]
o CEX Market making: 5%
o LBA: 1%
o New Liquidity Incentives*: 6% [1]
3) Airdrop: 20%
o Up to 1.84% to self-custody VGX Holders, proportional to the total number of people self-custodying VGX as of the date of the snapshot
o Up to 12.83% to Voyager Creditors, proportional to the total possible number of creditors
o Up to 4% to Celsius holders and creditors, where the first 200,000 applicants get 1,000 tokens each
4) Non-executive contributors: 7%
5) Ecosystem/Burn: 12%
o Bug Bounties over 10 years: 5.51%
o Marketing over 10 years: 7%
o Ecosystem/Burn: 2%
Whatever is unused will accrue to a general ‘ecosystem’ tranche which will be used to further the objectives of the dApp.
