XinFin Token Supply

Tokens or cryptocurrencies are a primary aspect of blockchain projects. In a time when there are hundreds of blockchain projects coming up each year, there’s a dire need for people to understand the importance that tokens serve as part of the project. By studying the token distribution and the purpose of the tokens in the project’s ecosystem one can understand the reliability of a particular project.

In this article, we will explain the token distribution of XDC and why it is in the best interest of our community and users alike.

What is XDC Token Distribution?

Token distribution is a prominent aspect of crypto-economics which is more commonly known as tokenomics. The founders/developers of a blockchain project are bound to formulate a strategy to distribute their tokens in two ways: the initial distribution before the launch of the project and the distribution on an ongoing basis post-launch. The proper distribution of the token subtly acts as a foundation of the project’s long-term success.

Usually, the total supply of tokens is distributed to be used for

  • Allocation to founders, advisors, team members, and community.
  • Ecosystem development or airdrops.
  • Distribution during private and public investment.
  • Minting from XDPOS.
