Phase 1, completed
We are delighted with the growth in this ‘phase 1’, which has been enabled by a supportive and engaged community. Today marks one month since our token listing on the Uniswap decentralized exchange, and we have achieved a lot in such a short period, including, but not limited to:
- The first ever #GlobalOlyChallenge, launched by Olyseum Co-founder Andrés Iniesta. This initiated the Proof of Concept for our Product Market Fit. Almost 50 stars (and adding more every day) waiting to be launched.
- The launch of OLY on Uniswap.
- OLY being listed on the Centralized Exchange Bilaxy.
- Strategic partnership signed with MotoGP icon and World Champion Jorge Martín.
Phase 2, new challenges
In the background, the Olyseum team, in conjunction with a number of our leading contributors, have been working on a tight list of proposals to ensure the transition from phase 1 to phase 2 is as seamless as possible, and ties in with the long term objectives of the platform.
We have also been aggregating and assessing the feedback from our community of contributors in recent weeks, particularly in relation to ensuring a healthy liquidity pool.
While we were always preparing for a successful token launch, we perhaps underestimated the scale of potential growth in the immediate aftermath. This, coupled with the initial low liquidity pool, has provided a strong impetus for us to explore efficient ways to increase the circulating supply and facilitate higher liquidity levels.
In response to this, we made some necessary adjustments to our unlocking schedule to build a healthy, liquid market. It is important to note that our biggest contributors have validated and approved this adjustment, which gives expression to their firm belief in the approach we are taking. We are happy that you are joining us on this new path.
Under our previous roadmap, roughly 1 billion pre-sale token allocations were set to be released by Q2. We created a voluntary Vesting Program that will give approximately 50% yield to participants over 2 years in order to smoothen the token emission that will be carried out to the market in a synchronous and absorbable manner, aligning the interests of all the players and ensuring an optimization of the market penetration process.
Liquidity event, Mining programs, CEX & Marketing
To greatly mitigate the risk of this scenario playing out, we propose a number of solutions that we believe will create a new market equilibrium, based on circulating supply. This methodical, gradual approach will be three-fold:
- Increase circulating supply in tandem with increased market liquidity, powered by:
- 1.1) A liquidity bootstrapping event.
- 1.2) A liquidity mining program.
- 1.3) Strategic and incremental CEX listings and IEO.
2. Launch a voluntary rewards program to release part of the supply in a gradual and absorbable way, via a transparent token vesting roadmap.
3. Embark on next growth phase, through:
- 3.1) The addition of new stars to our star roster.
- 3.2) The proliferation of high-profile advertising spots in conjunction with Olystars.
- 3.3) Branding under the direction of our new Head of Communications (to be officially announced in coming weeks).
Token vesting roadmap
As part of our comprehensive plan to ensure a healthy cadence of token unlocking, we have developed a carefully thought out token vesting schedule.
As a means of generating a sensible emission rate of tokens into the market, a trustless vesting contract will be utilized allowing non-custodial management of token stakes by contributors that choose to participate in the program.
Under this framework, the optional program states:
- Pre-sale participants can receive 10% day1 liquidity and then are linearly vested for 12 months. Around 50% APY for the vested tokens.
- Other allocations (ex: Stars, Marketing, …) are vested into the future where they receive a lump sum in a “cliff” and then are linearly vested block-by-block for a longer period of time (see the below table for details).
- All participants will confirm their Ethereum address and will be able to withdraw their vested allocation at any time post unlock day from a vesting vault.
- A liquidity bootstrapping event will be held after the unlock day to facilitate a capital injection into an automated market maker (Uniswap).
- Several NFT auctions may take place shortly after, where OLY tokens will be utilized for proprietary access and sale.
Important: These numbers and charts are projected assuming a total participation, and are subject to participation rate, which means that pre-sale vesting and APY may vary.
Building our shared ecosystem: Block by block
Much like how the colosseum in Rome wasn’t built in one day, the growth of the Olyseum ecosystem will be block by block. All of us are working on the same vision, with the same goals. We have come very far together, and I’m excited to see where we can go, together!
