Citadel.One Off-chain Proposal #1 XCT Buyback and Burn Overview

We propose to use accrued rewards from DAO Nodes for XCT buyback from Pancakeswap pools and further burn to create positive buying pressure and increase the trading volume on existing exchanges.

Letter from Foundation

“Dear XCT community, has seen impressive growth and development over the last year.

The universe of validator nodes has increased from just 5 a year ago up to 21 today, acceding TVL of $200M. Today, the platform supports 11 fully integrated networks providing access to hundreds of crypto-assets (ERC-20, SNIP-20, BEP-20). SCRT / ETH bridge is the first (but not the last) integrated into the platform.

We want to say thank you to all our investors and community, who put a lot of trust and support into this project! As a sign of our gratitude, we would like to announce some exciting news for our token holders.

As you might know, XCT is a securitized token, whose value is partially based on the revenue stream is generating from its nodes. In accordance with our tokenomics, 50% of that revenue goes to the community pool and can be voted to get back into XCT holders’ pockets via a governance proposal.

However, our development roadmap is very busy with all the product releases coming till the end of the year. There is no room to integrate a full-scale governance tool into the platform till that time. That’s why we`ve come to the idea to do something different — an XCT buyback and burn.

This post is a soft voting proposal to convert community fund pool proceeds into USDT to buyback and burn XCT from now and until the end of the year.

We expect this to create a positive buying pressure on XCT price and bring considerable trading volume needed to improve liquidity. Exact numbers and timings are not disclosed to avoid front-running, however, will release a detailed report after the process is completed.”

List of addresses

To the moment of this proposal is counting 21 nodes in mainnets. All their addresses and balances are public and can be viewed in explorers. From the moment of DAO launch, all those addresses were nullified, meaning that current balances are fully DAO community-owned. You can see them in the list below:

Listed nodes currently have over $200M USD total value staked and over $600,000 accrued in rewards from commissions, half of which is going to the community fund and is currently proposed to be used for XCT buyback and burn.

Buyout and burn events

In the case of positive feedback, buyout and burn events will be happening in multiple batches in the period from 15.11.21 to 31.12.21.

In order to avoid front-running DAO Foundation will not disclose the buyout exact time, however will release a detailed report after the process is completed.

How to vote?

This is a soft proposal and will only be discussed on the forum without going on-chain. Our development roadmap is very busy with all the product releases coming till the end of the year. There is no room to integrate a full-scale governance tool into the platform till that time. Once DAO functionality is released, this sort of proposals will be decided on-chain.
