HZN Token Distribution

The initial minted supply of HZN token is 100,000,000. Details:

  • 10% (10,000,000 HZN) will be reserved for the IFO on PancakeSwap.
  • 30% (30,000,000 HZN) will be reserved for Liquidity Mining (PHB, HZN, HZN-BNB LP) purposes.
  • 60% (60,000,000 HZN) will be reserved for the Ecosystem & Community Fund.

Initially, only the 10% IFO allocation will be circulating in the market, followed by the Liquidity Mining allocation, expected to be released over the course of a year. The Ecosystem & Community Fund will NOT be initially circulating and will be used to support the protocol and community via stabilization of synthetic asset collateralization, market making for synthetic assets, protocol grants, bounties, partnerships, marketing and other community incentives. There is no team or investor allocation.

Following the launch of Horizon Genesis dApp, there will be a perpetual inflation schedule in order to continuously incentivise synthetic asset collateralization. This inflation schedule will begin at a 70% annual rate and will taper down to a terminal annual inflation rate of 2.5% by week 235 (~4.5yrs).
