The $MUON token is designed to incentivize network participants in the most efficient way and maximize network value, with regards to tech development, marketing/community and network incentives.

Key Takeaways:

  • Initial launch Marketcap of $MUON = ~$1.5M (~45M x $0.03)
  • Circulating supply will be much lower than max supply
  • Tokens are vested over a maximum period of 4 years from launch
  • Ecosystem rewards will be released slowly over up to ~10 years

The following is a breakdown of the token distribution and vesting release schedule for $MUON:

$MUON Release Schedule

The total supply of $MUON is vested for a period of 4 years (48 months), with regular unlocks for each of the groups. For full details, you can see the above graph or check out our token launch page.

Here are a few key details to note:

  • 10% of all community investment rounds (Seed + Angel + SHO) will be unlocked at launch; these will be fully unlocked in 27 months. (This will include the community pre-sale.)
  • Just 44.5M tokens (or 4.45% of the total supply) will be unlocked at launch. This will increase to 74M (7.4%) after 4 weeks.
  • Development & partner tokens will NOT be unlocked until after 1 year, and will take the full 4 years to be fully unlocked.
  • Although in theory the total supply of $MUON is 1 billion, the ecosystem incentives for node operators will be released over a long period of time (estimated between 4–10 years).
