Amplitude (AMPE) Tokenomics

AMPE is the utility token that powers Amplitude Chain



AMPE is the native token of Pendulum’s sister project, Amplitude. The entire supply will be minted in the genesis block at launch. In order to ensure Amplitude is a community-first project, the Pendulum team decided to take no allocation of AMPE tokens for themselves or advisors and held no token private sales.

Tokenomics Overview

Ticker: AMPE

Relay Chain: Kusama

Supply Structure: Fixed

Total Supply: 200,000,000

Initial Circulating Supply: 11,555,556

Supply at Genesis: 200,000,000

Inflation: 0%*

*AMPE token holders can enjoy a 0% inflation rate, meaning no new tokens will be minted after launch. Note that a portion of tokens are vested so the initial supply is lower than the total supply.


The distribution is reflective of the intended nature of the project that truly gives Amplitude to the community.

Protocol & Ecosystem Breakdown:

AMPE Token Utility

Amplitude will be the canary network of its sister blockchain, Pendulum. It will act as a testing ground for applications and network parameters for Pendulum, but with real financial consequences.

AMPE token utilities will initially include transaction fees, staking and on-chain governance. Transaction fees will be an integral part of using the network and will be applicable when making any transactions on the protocol and will be paid using AMPE. The fee will be split between the community treasury, rewards and others.

On-chain governance will follow a quadratic voting mechanism to ensure more votes for smaller holders and to disincentivize a single holder casting multiple votes on a single proposal. Proposals in the following categories can be voted on by the community of token holders:

1. Asset Listings — Listing and delisting the token on DEXes and CEXes.

2. Reward Distributions — The mechanism and amount of rewards distributed to different players of the network.

3. Parameter Modifications — Technical upgrades, smart contract configuration changes, transaction fees, etc.

4. Community Suggestions — Other suggestions / recommendations from the community.
