Upgrade to the Lendefi token

Lendefi has released a new token

On the 1st of August 2021, an unauthorised minting of 850,000 tokens occurred as the result of an information leak of the validator address for the Hot Cross ETH-BSC bridge. This was controlled by the LDFI team (sub-contracted to Blockchain Labs Asia).

After a number of consultations with Hot Cross and Chainsulting, the Lendefi management team made the decision to release an upgraded BEP-20 token to replace the legacy ERC-20/BEP-20 tokens and provide resolution to the unauthorised minting that occurred.

What does this mean for token holders?

All LDFI ERC-20/BEP-20 token holders will receive the upgraded BEP-20 LDFI token via airdrop.

If you are a LDFI token holder and haven’t yet received your upgraded LDFI token please visit our Telegram group and ask for an admin.

The Lendefi Treasury will bear the expense of burning the extra tokens that were minted as a result of the security breach.

The legacy ETH-BSC bridge has been permanently decommissioned and for the time being there will be no cross-chain functionality.

Upgraded Tokenomics

The upgraded token is rebased by a multiplier of 1,000. Hence, the total supply will increase from 10,000,000 to 10,000,000,000. Consequently, all existing token holders will also be given 1000x more tokens than they are currently holding. The reasoning behind the rebase is because a larger token supply is more conducive toward reward programs such as staking/farming/referrals (a soon to be released feature).

After consultation with liquidity professionals, we decided to build reflection features into the new token, as it increases value for token holders and fosters price increases. It also provides a native form of staking, rewarding our community of holders. Further staking will be introduced next month, allowing token holders to “stack” their staking to exponentially increase their token yields.

3% Transaction Fee on all transactions

1% Transaction Fee — Given back to all token holders
1% Buy-Back Fee —
Used to Buy Back and Burn tokens
1% Wallet Fee
— Protocol & marketing funds

Transaction Fee % to Holders (1%)
The transaction fee percentage distributed to token holders. This fee will be collected from all transactions as a percentage of the transaction token amount and immediately reflected to current holders. The fee is paid in LDFI.

Transaction Fee % to Buyback Tokens (1%)
Hyper-deflationary mechanism.

The fee will be collected from all transactions as a percentage of the transaction token amount. Once the token contract holding exceeds 0.1% of the total supply, an automated swap will be executed on a sell transaction and BNB will be added to the token contract. Once the BNB balance of the token contract exceeds 1 BNB, on a sell transaction 1% of the available BNB balance will be used to buy back and burn LDFI tokens.

Transaction Fee % to Wallet (1%)
The transaction fee % sent to the Lendefi Protocol’s multi-sig wallet.
These funds will be used to fund Protocol and Marketing expenses.
