  • Participate with USDC
  • Early participants may be whitelisted to mint Tempus Sers NFTs
  • The auction starts on Tuesday 16 November 17:00 UTC

We’ll be hosting a series of AMAs later this week to answer any questions related to the token launch. We’ll also be sharing a guide on how to take part in the token launch on Friday 12 November, so be sure to follow us on our social media channels.

Key Upcoming Dates

  • Ongoing — ​​Tempus team available on Discord and Telegram for questions


Tempus is a DeFi protocol built for AMM-powered interest rate swaps, supported by Lemniscap, Jump Capital, Distributed Global, GSR, Wintermute, Tomahawk.VC and others.

Using Tempus, users can obtain capital-efficient fixed yields backed by variable staking or lending yields. For example, Tempus will be the first protocol to release fixed-rate ETH 2.0 staking via Lido. Tempus will also integrate with Compound, Aave, Yearn, and Rari Capital. Tempus is live on testnet and is planning on launching on mainnet in the next few weeks.

Auction Details

Tempus will be using an LBP to distribute approximately 7% of the total token supply of its governance token TEMP, in a pool, running from Tuesday 16 November to Thursday 18 November.

For more information on the Tempus protocol tokenomics, you can read our latest Medium article here.

The LBP will start at a pool weight of TEMP : USDC = 90 : 10 and will gradually shift on a linear step-down to TEMP : USDC = 10 : 90 over the period, creating downward pressure on the price. The starting price of TEMP will be $0.51.

The LBP will start at 17:00 UTC, and last for a duration of two days.

Auction start: Tuesday 16 November 17:00 UTC
Auction end: Thursday 18 November 17:00 UTC

TEMP Contract: 0xa36fdbbae3c9d55a1d67ee5821d53b50b63a1ab9

Price Disclosure and Tokenomics

Please see below for some relevant details related to price disclosure and team vesting schedule:

  • The last Tempus private raise was completed in November 2021 — with a fully diluted valuation of $125M or $0.125 per TEMP token. The round included 30-month vesting and other commitments.
  • See our Tempus Tokenomics blog post for a chart of TEMP token allocations.

Team has a 3-year vesting schedule and investors have a 2.5 year vesting schedule.

Early participants will have a chance to be whitelisted for Tempus Sers NFTs. At Tempus, our community comes first and that is why those who buy more than 10,000 TEMP in the first 8 hours of the auction will be whitelisted at random for 1 NFT each. The final NFTs of the Sers collection will be allocated this way.

Next steps

We will soon be publishing a step-by-step guide on our Medium on how to take part in the token launch on Copper and will be holding multiple AMAs and podcasts later in the week. In the meantime, you can find our upcoming token sale listed here, where you will be able to join the auction once it goes live next Tuesday!
