Hedge tokenomics

Token utility

The Hedge protocol issues 2 protocol tokens - USH and HDG. USH is an overcollateralised stablecoin issued by locking up collateral and as such has a varying supply over time. HDG is the protocol token. At launch, users may stake HDG to earn portion of protocol fees, which are taken during loan initiation - this model may change as the protocol matures and HDG is used for governance.

HDG distribution

​
HDG token distribution.
There are a total of 10M HDG tokens.
60% of all tokens are allocated to the community, with 45% of the total tokens given out as liquidity & stability mining incentives. 5% of the total is given out as community rewards which include incentives for integration and potential airdrops. 10% of the total is kept aside for the Hedge Treasury. A portion of the Hedge Treasury will be staked to generate revenues for the team and community, though Hedge will ensure that the staked tokens do not represent more than 50% of the staking pool at any point in time.
15% of all tokens are set aside for investors - with 10% of the total going to seed investors and 5% set aside for future fundraise if needed. The seed investors have a 18 month vesting schedule after token launch with a 1 year cliff.
25% of all tokens are allocated to the core team and are subject to a 3 year vest with a 1 year cliff.

HDG Emissions

Hedge will start liquidity mining at the same time as mainnet launch. This is the expected emission schedule for HDG token emission over the next 6 years. The stability pool incentives are fixed and halve every year.
Target HDG emissions for the 1st year after launch
Target HDG emissions 6 years after launch

Stability Pool Emissions

A total of 2M HDG tokens will be emitted over the total lifetime of the Hedge contract. Emissions are dictated according to the following half-life formula, where f(n) represents the total amount of tokens emitted on day n after launch.
f(n)=∫0n2000000365log(2))βˆ—12x365dxf(n) = \int_{0}^{n} \frac{2000000}{\frac{365}{log(2))}}* \frac{1}{2}^{\frac{x}{365}} dx
