Breaking down the Zilliqa Tokenomics
There are vital modifications underway inside Zilliqa’s Tokenomics panorama, which had been defined through the occasion. We break them down for you beneath.
These modifications had been initiated to develop the platform’s capabilities in absorbing newly minted tokens, which the present token economic system is unable to do. We shall be remedying this by restructuring some mechanisms to create an ‘energetic round economic system’ on-chain. This economic system shall be fortified by three pillars:
- Higher Staking mechanisms: The change the block reward cut up from 95% (miners) — 5% (staking nodes) to 60% (miners) — 40% (staking nodes) will imply extra rewards shall be out there for delegators and therefore extra $ZIL will be staked making a deeper sink for $ZIL. This can even assist keep a wholesome annual yield from staking. With the intention to compensate for the loss to the miners, the proposal is to extend the block reward by 40%. With the brand new block reward cut up in favor of staking nodes and counter improve in inflation (to favor miners), the precise mining reward per epoch will go down by solely 12%. General, these modifications make extra $ZIL out there for staking. Even when 80% of the availability will get staked within the subsequent 1 12 months, these modifications will be sure that the yield will stay a wholesome ~6%.
- Choices to recycle gasoline paid to the community: We’ll create a system whereby the gasoline charges paid to the community won’t go to miners immediately however as an alternative shall be pooled in a particular handle (0x0) from the place all mining rewards originate.
- Driving stablecoin liquidity to the Zilliqa community with ZilSwap: We plan to launch ZilSwap, an automatic market maker (AMM) decentralised change in Q3 2020, along with our accomplice, Switcheo. That may allow us to arrange incentivised liquidity swimming pools for ZIL/XSGD, ZIL/zBUSD and ZIL/IDR, and drive up the ZRC2 token transactions within the community. Therefore, extra gasoline charges shall be spent and “burn” consequently when this Open Finance (OpFi) ecosystem expands. This method is finally geared toward driving up the demand for $ZIL as a medium of change and permitting $ZIL to accrue worth as adoption will increase.
Zilliqa additionally utilised this chance to introduce Zilliqa Capital Pte. Ltd. — a 50–200 mn USD funding fund to assist our greatest ecosystem companions take their PoC’s off the board and scale it up right into a profitable enterprise.

The funds for Zilliqa Capital – which shall be headed by Michael Conn, Head of Company Improvement at Zilliqa — are to be raised in two phases: the primary shall be a personal fundraising spherical, and the second shall be a safety token providing (STO) for the general public. We’ll share extra particulars on this new entity in Q3 this 12 months — keep tuned!
