Token Supply and Distribution in the ATOK Ecosystem

Implementing vesting plans not only helps a project avoid a massive sell-off upon launch but also secures sustainability, and demonstrates long-term commitment, thereby increasing investor confidence in the project development team.

For ATOK, applying multi-stage vesting mechanisms helps maintain project stability and minimizes the risk of significant token price volatility. With a token distribution method extending over several years, the ATOK community and team continue to build and develop the project without facing considerable pressure from the token supply. Let's explore ATOK's token vesting together!

1. Definition of Token Vesting

a. What is Token Vesting?

Token Vesting is a process where tokens are distributed over an appropriate time with a corresponding amount of tokens. This method is used to motivate founders, employees, or stakeholders in a blockchain project to ensure they remain committed and contribute to the project's long-term development.

Token Vesting Definition

Token Vesting Definition

Token vesting often comes with a "cliff period" - an initial period during which no tokens are allotted. After this period, tokens begin to be allocated gradually according to a predefined schedule.

This aims to ensure long-term commitment and contribution from the community and the project's founding team. On the other hand, the token vesting process is also one of the ways to stabilize the token price when the project is about to launch or receives new funding.

Token Vesting also ensures a level of risk protection for investors, as it prevents tokens from being massively sold off immediately after the project launch or being listed on DEX/CEX exchanges, potentially depreciating the token price.

2. Token Unlock Methods

a. Cliff Unlock

Cliff Unlock Token, also known as Cliff Vesting, is a token distribution method where there is an initial period during which no tokens are distributed (called the "cliff period"). After the cliff period, a large number of tokens will be released at once or begin to be gradually released according to the vesting plan.

  • For example:

Suppose a DeFi project decides to distribute 2400 tokens to a developer with a two-year vesting plan and a six-month cliff period. After six months, the developer will receive 600 tokens (equivalent to the six months that have passed). The remaining tokens will then be released steadily each month over the next 18 months.

b. Linear Unlock

Linear Unlock Token, also called Linear Vesting, is a method of distributing tokens over time linearly. This means that tokens will be released or unlocked continuously and evenly throughout the determined vesting period.

3. ATOK's Vesting Mechanism.

Especially in the ATOK ecosystem - and M2E being the core token in the ecosystem, with a total supply of 10B $M2E and no additional tokens being issued, the token distribution & unlock mechanism goes as follows:

  • 50% of the $M2E tokens will go to the reward pool, where it is used to reward user’s contributions. This pool will also adopt a burning policy, which will be updated at a later date.
  • 30% of the total supply will be allocated to the Ecosystem. After 1 year, burning 50% pool/year and lasting for 10 years.
  • 10% of the $M2E tokens will be available for Public Sale after $M2E is listed on DEX/CEX exchanges with the initial rate of 0.007 (M2E/USDT) - Users will have the right to exchange and trade.
  • 10% of the $M2E tokens allocated for the Project Team will be locked for the first year after the $M2E listing. In the following 5 years, they will be unlocked with a Linear mechanism, aiming to maintain price stability for $M2E.

Note: 100% of the $M2E used to purchase NFTs will be burned in full.

4. Overview of the Initial Token Supply

In the ATOK ecosystem, with an initial supply of 1,000,000,000 M2E tokens launched in the market (out of a total of 10,000,000,000 M2E), with initial pricing at 0.007 USDT, and expected to officially launch the application and introduce M2E to the crypto market in 2024.

5. Summary

Overall, token vesting is an effective token distribution management strategy, promoting the sustainable and stable development of blockchain projects. This not only benefits founders and teams but also protects the rights of investors, ensuring a positive and reliable development environment for the entire ecosystem.
