SubQuery, the pioneer of fast, flexible, and scalable decentralised infrastructure, is gearing up for the upcoming Public Sale, which will take place on Tuesday, the 30th of January 2024 at 8am UTC (view in your timezone or add to your Google or Outlook calendar).
The Public Sale is an opportunity for our community to purchase the SubQuery Token (SQT). The launch of SQT is the next step in the decentralisation of our innovative decentralised infrastructure service, and is a utility token that powers the SubQuery Network with three main use cases:
- To act as a medium of exchange on the network marketplace;
- To create a reward incentive mechanism for Delegators, Consumers, on and Node Operators (data indexers and RPC providers);
- To facilitate governance within the protocol.
The SubQuery Foundation has a dedicated sale page with all sale details. At the time of the sale, this page will direct you to the funds processing and purchase UI. The website will be kept up to date with any new developments.
Summary of Sale Terms
Firstly, SubQuery will go public at a valuation of US$120 million. We’ve specifically chosen this valuation after discussion with partners and our investors to both accurately show the huge progress that SubQuery has made over the past years, while still allowing for significant upside for all public sale participants. This means that there will be 4.17% of the total supply available for sale, with a public sale token price of US$0.012.
Secondly, we’ve adjusted the sale structure slightly to allow us to better maximise the distribution of SQT to our community, especially since our whitelist has grown substantially over the years. Both pools will start at the same time (30th January 2024, 8 am UTC), but now the Whitelist Pool will only run for 8 hours at which any unsold SQT from the Whitelist Pool will be moved to the public pool after 9 hours (at the team's discretion).
We’re excited that all those who purchase SQT in the public and past private sales will be airdropped SubQuery Network Genesis NFTs. Holders may enjoy exclusive access to new product releases, priority in future community events across the ecosystem of SubQuery and its partners, and more.
Token Distribution Plan
SubQuery will initially mint a supply of 10 Billion SQT. There will be a small rate of inflation (~1.3% annual) in which tokens will be distributed as network rewards and also fund network stimulus programmes and mainnet incentives from the SubQuery Foundation Treasury.
From the start, SubQuery has been focused on building value within the community and this aim continues with the largest allocation of tokens being apportioned to the Community and SubQuery Foundation for various programmes and mainnet incentives.
The Foundation will administer the governance and growth of the ecosystem and the ownership of the SubQuery Network will come under the SubQuery Foundation initially. This allocation also includes consideration for future investment into the development and operations of the Network, and key ecosystem growth drivers. This will include tools such as grants and ecosystem incentives/events as well as other marketing activities including bug bounties and mainnet incentives.
Early investors in previous private investment rounds have a combined allocation of 34.8%. SubQuery is grateful for their early support and commitment to help us through the initial phase of SubQuery.
Token Vesting Schedule
The graphic below illustrates the release of the SQT tokens to each participant over time culminating in the full circulation of tokens occurring 5 years (60 months) after launch.
The vesting schedules for each participant have been designed to create long-term value for the project and generate confidence in token-holders. Perhaps most significantly, the core team will have a 24-month lock-up period which will then vest over another 24 months while some Public Sale participants can freely use the utility of their token upon launch.
The Foundation and Community will have approximately 20% of the allocation unlocked from the start (as part of mainnet incentives) to meet the operational needs of launching and promoting the SubQuery Network with the rest of the allocation vesting gradually over 5 years.
