What is a DeversiFi Launch Market?

Before you even think about participating in the DVF DLM, it is essential that you understand what a DLM is and how it works.

A DeversiFi Launch Market (DLM) is a token fair launch mechanism which combines elements of a reverse auction with continues liquidity in order to establish the market price of a token by involving all participants.

The starting price of a DLM starts high and slowly decays, therefore removing the problem of fastest-finger-first and front running.

As a DLM is hosted on the DeversiFi Layer 2, participants do not pay gas and can participate in privacy, whilst still maintaining full control of their funds, meaning token project can reach a much wider audience who might be put off participating due to high Ethereum gas costs on Layer 1

What is the DVF DLM?

The DVF token is the Governance token of the DeversiFi protocol. DVF holders govern the protocol by changing aspects of how DeversiFi operates, including fees charged. DVF holders earn fees generated by DeversiFi. For more details on the DVF token, see the DVF pages on the main DeversiFi website

2,000,000 DVF tokens are being made available from the DVF DAO treasury for the community to buy in the inaugural DLM

DVF DLM Purpose:

All USDt raised from the sale will be entirely community governed and will be used to seed a Uniswap DVF pool directly after the DVF DLM closes, with a maximum of 2,000,000 being matched from the DVF DAO treasury. This ensures that there is a long term permeant source of liquidity fro DVF and the DVF DAO earns fees from the Uniswap trading activity

What will the circulating supply be?

The circulating supply directly after the DVF DLM will depend on how many DVF tokens are sold in the DVF DLM

2,000,000 DVF tokens sold in the DLM + matched liquidity (up an additional 2,000,000) from the DVF treasury to seed a Uniswap pool

5,000,000 DVF tokens used as a DeversiFi company float for use in liquidity provision (CEX listings), fast withdrawal pools, collateral in market making etc.

What is the the DVF market capitalisation?

DVF has a total supply of 100,000,000 tokens and a circulating supply after the DLM of c.7,000,000-9,000,000 tokens. Multiply the number of tokens by the price of DVF (discovered during the DLM) to obtain either the fully diluted market cap or the circulating market cap.

What is the DVF token issuance schedule?

Shortly after the DLM, additional DVF will be made liquid via a DVF airdrop to NEC holders (7%) , active users of DeversiFi (maximum 5.5% spread over multiple airdrops) and the start of liquidity mining on DeversiFi (maximum 46% linear unlock over 3 years, needs to be approved by DVF holders)

After 1 year, the strategic supporter purchases of DVF will begin to unlock (from the 30th May 2022) with a 2 year linear issuance schedule (12.5%)

For more details on the DVF token issuance, see the DVF tokenomics page on the DeversiFi website
