Recently we have issued ERC20 EVEN token. The token on Etherscan.
Total Supply on October 31, 2019: 20,227,982 EVEN
Holders on October 31, 2019: 4,416 addresses
An additional issue of a token is planned for the needs of a marketing campaign (bounty, referral program, airdrop). The token is not listed on exchanges. There was no initial offer in the form of IEO or ICO. The EVEN coin will be volatile.
On the EVEN platform, a native token will be issued following the roadmap. We will swap ERC20 to native token (1:1 rate). The native token issue is planned in an amount that covers marketing needs, team/investor rewards and initial offering (if any).
After the token is issued, forging (mining) starts. The complexity of token forging will increase over time (according to WP).
EVEN is an application token. The function of the token in the EVEN Network is to ensure the operation of the consensus algorithm.
The Rated DAG consensus algorithm chooses validators based on the technical characteristics of nodes and the amount of the node's stake in EVEN tokens. The higher the stake of a node in EVEN tokens, the more likely it is that the node will comply with the rules of the network and avoid penalties. For example, the token is needed as a protection against DDoS attacks on the network. When a node fails to meet consensus conditions or send more data into the network than it processes, its stake is reduced by the amount of the penalty or fee. Thus, the credibility of nodes with a large stake increases and they are more likely to participate in the confirmation of transactions.
New coins in the EVEN Network appear as a result of forging (mining), as a nod's reward for transaction confirmations. Over time, coin forging becomes more complicated and more effort is needed to get the reward.
The EVEN coin is used as a means of payment and international transfers. Full confirmation of the transaction takes 3.5 seconds, fee is not charged (if the conditions are met). EVEN is developed as a payment instrument, not a means of savings such as Bitcoin.
Stablecoin will be released on the EVEN Network. It will be pegged to the portfolio of cryptocurrencies pledged by users of the platform. Stablecoin will allow to implement additional use-cases and to reduce volatility when performing financial operations. For example, it will be possible to provide insurance, lending and funding under the terms of smart contracts published on our platform. Trusted oracles (external services) trigger actions of smart contracts.
