Detailed Breakdown

In deciding how to best decentralize ownership of HFT, we recognized that parties external to the Hashflow founding team and investors should own the majority of the protocol. As such, the community and ecosystem partners will receive 55% of the HFT genesis supply, and the core team and investors will receive a total of 44%:
At genesis, HFT will be distributed as following:
  • Core Team (19%): Founding team members and engineers that designed, developed and deployed the Hashflow protocol
  • Investors (25%): Early investors that provided the initial runway to help launch the protocol
  • Ecosystem Development (56%): This is a catch-all bucket that includes the community treasury, rewards for early community members and users, and an allocation for market makers that helped provide the initial liquidity in Hashflow
Over time, the allocation to Ecosystem Development allocation will increase to 68% via inflationary token emissions (more details below). Ten years after token launch, the token supply will look as follows:

Ecosystem Development

Within Ecosystem Development, HFT will be distributed to the following sub-categories:
  • Community Treasury (31.25%): Funds that can be activated and deployed via governance as decided by HFT holders
  • Early Community Rewards (6.75%): Retroactive rewards for early users and participants in Hashflow (see below for more distribution details)
  • Future Hires (4%): Core team members that will join and contribute to the protocol after HFT launch
  • Ecosystem Partners (14%): Early integrators as well as designated market makers (DMMs) will receive an allocation as follows:
    • Early integrators (8%)
    • DMMs (6%)
