What is xToken (XTK) | What is XTK token

What are xTokens?

xTokens are ERC20 wrapper tokens for staking, governance and liquidity strategies. xToken offers simple set-and-forget tokens that provide simplified exposure to the returns from participating in staking protocols.

Token address:  0x7f3edcdd180dbe4819bd98fee8929b5cedb3adeb

Uniswap pool: 0x2FBa756C64d4F9dBB17F1B3A1AfB5F05af7f18C0

Max supply: 1 billion

Retroactive Distribution

We’ve distributed 2% of supply (20 million XTK) retroactively to past users and liquidity providers. Each eligible address was assigned a cumulative point total based on participation in the network: 1 point each for an investment in an xAsset, whether by direct mint on xToken or swap on a liquidity pool. And 1 point each for contributing to our recommended liquidity pool.

For example, a user who invested in xKNCa, xINCHb and xSNXa and contributed liquidity to the xINCHb 1Inch pool would have been allocated 4 units of distribution.

We then divided the allocated pool by the number of total distribution units and registered the total distribution to each address in our claims contract. We finalized our script at block 11857556 (Feb. 14 10:30 PM UTC). **Check for your distribution at **xToken Cafe. Rewards will remain available for 1 year, at which point they will be returned to the community pool.

Community Vesting

Instead of buying on the market, we highly recommend that community members who want to own XTK earn it via our Community Vesting program. We will be heavily incentivizing users to contribute to select liquidity pools. Our initial program will run for 10 weeks and will distribute 8% of total XTK supply. While the initial incentives period is 10 weeks, we intend to extend most or all of these programs. Read more about Community Vesting on the dedicated blog postCommunity Vesting starts tomorrow at 8 pm EST!

Overall Token Distribution

Our token distribution is as follows:

  • Community Vesting — 50%: liquidity incentive and engagement programs, paid out over 2 – 4 years. This includes our initial liquidity incentives launching today, as well as future liquidity and community engagement programs to be announced soon.
  • Early Investors and Advisors — 12.9%: all investor and advisor allocations vest on a 2 year linear schedule with a 1 year cliff, initiated no earlier than September 10, 2020. This means that zero investor/advisor tokens unlock before September 10, 2021 and some investor/advisor allocations don’t begin unlocking until several months later.
  • Current and Future Team — 20%: all current and future team member allocations vest on a 4 year linear schedule with a 1 year cliff, initiated no earlier than September 10, 2020. This means that zero team member tokens unlock before September 10, 2021 and some team allocations don’t begin unlocking until several months later.
  • Growth and Ecosystem Fund — 17.1%: this is xToken’s long term treasury reserve. Any future investor allocation and all growth, development and ecosystem initiatives will be funded from this pool.

Looking Forward

While we’re still in the early stages of developing our token model, we’re excited to begin soliciting feedback from the xToken community on the path forward. Please join the conversation in our Discord.

Near term, we have several more xAssets slated to launch in Q1, with xToken Lending on track for Q2. Stay tuned for more updates on development plans and tokenomics.

Guide to XTK Community Vesting

We’re excited to announce the xToken Community Vesting program. We’ve set aside 50% of the XTK supply for various initiatives designed to engage the community.

We’ll have another blog post about ways the community can earn XTK via content creation and other creative contributions. However, this post will walk specifically through the liquidity incentives and how they work.

A Few Notes

Our incentives contracts are a slight fork of PieDao’s liquidity mining contracts which are a slight fork of Synthetix’s Staking Rewards and Reward Escrow contracts.

First, the basics:

  • Users acquire the xAsset directly at xToken Market or via a DEX like Uniswap, Balancer or 1Inch
  • Users provide liquidity to select Uniswap, Balancer and 1Inch pools. These pools hold 50% of capital in an xAsset and 50% in either one or two other assets, depending on the pool.
  • Users stake their LP tokens on xToken Cafe and XTK rewards accrue linearly based on proportional share of LP tokens staked.

We’ve introduced a few small wrinkles in order to attract long-term-minded liquidity providers who believe in and are aligned with the project. We would be happy to forgo a few dollars of TVL if it means our LPs are in it for the long term.

  • Users must exit the staking contracts in order to claim. This means that your LP tokens will be unstaked when you claim.
  • User rewards are escrowed for 6 weeks after the exit/claim transaction. Rewards will be vested and fully receivable 6 weeks after the claim.

Of course, users can just re-stake their LP tokens after claiming and exiting. It’s encouraged. However, we are hoping that a little bit of added staking friction and a short escrow period will deter farm-and-dumpers from participating.

Lastly, please note that xAssets are fairly new and highly risky.** Please review the available information on Medium and xToken Market before making any investment decisions**.

Our Liquidity Programs

All 8 of our pools will begin a 10-week incentive program on February 25th. We fully intend to extend most or all of these programs beyond 10 weeks.

Please note that adding liquidity can be very expensive in this high gas environment. Please consider whether your rewards will be sufficient to cover gas costs.

Note that Balancer requires users to deploy a DSProxy contract before contributing liquidity. This can be an expensive transaction, so if you’ve LP’d on Balancer before, we encourage you to use the same address.

Finally, we highly recommend that users who mint xAssets directly on xToken Market use the base token to mint (e.g., SNX for xSNXa or AAVE for xAAVEa) rather than ETH. While our contracts accept ETH for minting, the gas cost will be much higher than minting with the base token.
