What metric is the token solving for? If it’s going to release 90% of the supply, that looks very different than if 5% of the supply is released.
If the goal is to get it into as many wallets as possible to achieve “sufficient decentralization” distribution looks different.
If the goal is to incentivize liquidity, that looks different.
If the goal is to incentivize early supporters, that looks different.
If the goal is to incentivize total number of users, that looks different.
If the goal is to incentivize total number of active monthly(?) users, that looks different. (I took monthly because that’s the metric Coinbase used in it’s IPO)
And on top of all this----we are in a bull market so token price is very different than it would look like in another part of the cycle. Would all the defi tokens accrue any value at all if BTC was not above $20k and speculative cash wasn’t flowing into alts? As far as I know no defi token accrues actual protocol revenues. Most try to avoid that because it would be a security. There is zero fundamental value in any defi token.
You guys could make it quite simple:
Whenever v2 launches you start liquidity mining (nothing retroactive). You do it as a way to incentivize liquidity at the time you decide you want it.
Until a clear roadmap for the project is developed (and ultimately where actual paying users are going to come from (aka profits), the talk of a token could be premature.
Another idea: Liquidity mining reward is accrued but not paid for a year. There is no token, no price dumps, no price talk. Early liquidity could be incentivized with a positive factor and withdrawing liquidity prior to a year could be incentivized with a negative factor. Users also could accrue rewards. Then there could be a massive distribution when the product is mature and everyone is ready.
