$NOUS — Initial Coin Offering
$NOUS: a decentralised marketplace for DeFi
The $NOUS token offers a deflationary capital asset with added utility.
The total supply is capped at 100,000,000 (one hundred million) tokens. There will be 20% circulating supply at launch (20M tokens) with an initial market cap of $20,000,000
What is the $NOUS Marketplace?
Nous’ vision is simple; to build an open marketplace for non-fungible investment contracts with built-in asset management utility. Renewed interest in DeFi for low risk growth options has increased demand for a dedicated investment platform facilitating the comparing, buying, and selling a number of digital instruments across different asset classes. Our primary objective in this context is to create a new medium for the exchange of complex investment contracts while widening access to previously exclusive growth opportunities.
Using blockchain’s distributed ledger system, Nous is sharing the opportunity for investors to mint their own non-fungible contracts (NFCs via ERC-721 model) and take advantage of a suite of on-chain products in the first asset management service of its kind.
The NOUS marketplace is constructed to enable the diversification of assets between three main capital gateways: liquidity bonds (access to market leading yield opportunities), algorithmic funds (access to market inefficiencies never before available to retail investors), and ventures (access to early stage next-gen startup powered by a decentralised group of angel investors). Listings will include both proprietary assets developed by Nous and third party items listed on behalf of partnered projects.
More than just a marketplace, Nous represents a fresh conduit in the DeFi ecosystem through which up-and-coming projects will be able to frame themselves, accrue capital, and interact with established members of the community. In the long term, our enterprise aims to democratise access to previously exclusive investment types such as venture capital, while accelerating growth in the wider DeFi ecosystem with a standardised market for fundraising products and offerings.
In DeFi, tokens typically serve as capital assets whereby holders directly profit from the growth of the protocol. This concept is very similar to the way stocks work.
Put simply, DeFi protocols generate revenue, which has to be allocated somewhere. Nous will generate revenue from fees (e.g. commission, management and performance, secondary transactions) from the marketplace and its proprietary products.
A portion* of revenue will be allocated to:
Token Burn: Nous will allocate revenue generated from fees to buy back and burn $NOUS token supply. This concept mirrors share repurchases in the stock market. By reducing supply, the remaining $NOUS tokens become more valuable over time — benefitting $NOUS holders.
Fee issuance: Nous will also allocate fees to token holders who stake their $NOUS. This operates like a dividend, where $NOUS stakes are eligible to claim a share of the platform’s revenue. Unlike other protocols, $NOUS dividends will be paid out in stable currencies (USDT, USDC etc.), not the native token.
*Nous will optimally allocate revenue to create long-term value for users of Nous’ products and $NOUS token holders. Details on revenue allocation will be made public at TGE (token generation event).
