Inflation Schedule

Initial Supply: 5,368,709
Max Total Supply: 268,435,456 The tokens reserved for distribution to LPs, keepers and LPs of Backd governance token pools on AMMs are released according to a common inflation schedule, i.e., the same inflation schedule applies to their respective allocations. The initial supply of Backd governance tokens will be 2% (5,368,709) of the total token supply. Then, a further 56% (150,323,856) are released according to a perpetual piece-wise linear inflation schedule. In the first year 60,129,542 tokens will be released to the community (LPs, Keepers, AMMs). There-after, the annual inflation rate is reduced by a factor of 0.6 every year. The total token supply will thereby eventually approach 268,435,456. The remaining governance token allocations to early investors etc. are released according to a linear vesting schedule based on the respective vesting periods.

Reward Distribution

Backd LPs

Backd liquidity providers receive Backd governance tokens in proportion to the share of totally liquidity they supply to the pool. Each pool is assigned a specific pool weight which determines the amount of inflation the pools receives. Pool weights can be adjusted after the Backd DAO is launched.

Backd Keepers

Backd Keepers receive Backd governance token rewards in proportion to the value of top ups they execute. The number of tokens a keeper receives is calculated once per week. These rewards are fully vested and can be withdrawn immediately after they are available.
