Tokens are a key component of blockchain and other DLT applications, and developing a DLT token system with successful tokenomics can affect the success of your overall application. A successful DLT token ecosystem provides a way to transfer value between users, while setting up self-balancing behavioral incentives that work across every part of the system and provide benefits to stakeholders.Read More
One challenge in the blockchain/DLT industry is how to design token systems in a way that makes it harder for price movements to be manipulated or falsified.
Why is it important to have verifiably accurate market price data for token values?Read More
Double-Coin Blockchain Systems
A double-coin system splits the investing function and utility function into different coins. In many examples one coin is for investors and miners and the other is for utility and commerce.
This lets the network use the best features of both a fixed-supply coin (price to the moon!) and an uncapped coin (make new coins whenever you want.)Read More
Understanding pros and cons of blockchain economic systems is important when a business is deciding which blockchain platform to use to launch an ICO or utility token.
This article discusses the tokenomic structure of blockchain systems. In other words, it compares ways of designing high level economic models of blockchains. In contrast, this article is not about creating a coin for a specific business use. We are focusing on where the rail systems can take us, not what kind of trains to run.
The fields of cryptoeconomics and tokenomics are so new that there’s not much consensus on the definitions of terms, or best practices for designing tokens. As a a full-time cryptocurrency economist, I’ll help define these terms and outline token design in line with my work at He3Labs, where we bring the benefits of blockchain to real-world businesses through concepts like tokenomics.Read More
