Token Sales

During the previous sales rounds, 3 million CRU were sold. 1 million in the Seed Round ($0.5 per CRU), and 2 million in the Private Round ($1-$2 per CRU).

An additional 2 million CRU will be available for further plans:
100,000 CRU for auction
550,000 CRU to bootstrap DEX & CEX liquidity, onboard strategic ecosystem partners, run community events and other social activities.
1.35M CRU tokens will be locked in a separate contract; we will review our working capital requirements every 6 months

Current Circulating Supply

2M*15%(Private Round) + 100K(Auction) + 550K(liquidity) = 950,000 CRU

Staking Income

In the Crust Network Staking mechanism, CRU tokens are staked and distributed to staking participants. The yearly staking income is as below:

Other Tokens in the Crust System

In Crust Network, except for the main token CRU, there are tokens such as CSM, CRU18 and Candy that can be used in activities and marketing promotion. These tokens will be distributed to the community users and related entities entirely in the form of placement.


CRU18 represents CRU that is unlocked over a period of 18 months. CRU18 was issued to private equity investment institutions and those who participated in the early Profit Ark testnet. CRU18 cannot be transferred or traded, and will begin to linearly unlock over 18 months after the launch of the mainnet.

Once the Crust Network mainnet has launched, CRU18 can be used in staking.

No less than 100 million CSM will be distributed before the mainnet launch. The remaining CSM will be distributed via storage market promotions. CSM is mainly used in the following areas:

1. Used to participate in storage market related activities;

2. Users can use it to obtain discounts related to storage market rates;

3. Merchants can use it to obtain discounts related to storage market rates;

4. Used to exchange CRU in market revenue pool.

In most of Crust’s community distribution activities, Candy is used as the reward for distribution.

Aside from being used as a reward, Candy will also be used for community activities, such as voting, and other aspects.
