Public Mint Community Updates #5

Sep 17, 2021 | Building up to the launch of EARN: a glimpse on what’s coming next

Roundup of the past months

  • MINT Rewards Program: the MINT-only rewards program has been running seamlessly on the Public Mint blockchain for the part 6 weeks, with rewards being paid at a rate of 20% APY straight into the Public Mint addresses of everyone who have gone through the token migration, as outlined in this article. There are over 9 million MINT tokens now in our blockchain, with more being brought in. This version of the program will run until January 17, 2022, when the 2-way bridge will become operational, and it will be revisited to include governance incentives. It’s our plan to keep incentivising early adopters and liquidity, with a potential new program to incentivise USD and USDC liquidity in planning. For more information, check out this guide.
  • Metamask integration: we have laid out the instructions for connecting to the Public Mint blockchain via Metamask. This means users have another option to connect to the Public Mint ecosystem using familiar Ethereum-based tools. The crucial thing about this is that users will be able to use Metamask (configured for Public Mint) to access upcoming DApps in our network — including community-built ones that have been in the works by our amazing developer community. The next steps are to create an easy, one-click way of configuring the network to Metamask wallet from within our wallet interface, which should come in the next months after EARN is launched.

EARN Program Launch | Preliminary plan

We have been working tirelessly to put together all the key components of EARN, including technical integrations, compliance, FinOps, and QA of the earning and connectivity mechanisms.

Stage 1 | Waitslist and creating hype

Starting in early October

Stage 2 | Beta limited launch

Starting at end of October/Early November

Stage 3 | EARN unrestricted launch

Starting at mid- to late November

What comes next

This is by no means a static plan, and we shall be testing, measuring and reassessing our strategy in the light of new information/feedback that will inevitably arise.
