Everything there is to know about $TRIP
- Supply: 17k starting supply; uncapped
- Emission rate: 0.025 per block (2455 $TRIP daily)
- Expansion rate: currently inflationary due to uncapped supply and emission rate
- Note: by controlling the emission and burn rates of $TRIP, the token can be made deflationary if desired. There are, however, no such plans in place currently. Read more below.
Community members often point to the inflationary nature of $TRIP as a cause for concern. While the team certainly understand the wish for a hard cap, there's a big reason we don't expect to set one in the near future:
$TRIP's primary function is to incentivize providing liquidity to the exchange. Without block rewards, there would be much less incentive to provide liquidity.
The team aims to make deflation higher than emission by building deflationary mechanisms into all our Degen Haus future updates. The goal is for more $TRIP to leave circulation than the amount of $TRIP that's produced.
By reducing the amount of $TRIP generated per block, inflation can be slowed. This has already been done once: during initial testing, the emission of $TRIP was reduced from 0.05 $TRIP per block to 0.025 $TRIP per block. However, it is not expected that this will be done very frequently for the same reason that a hard cap is undesired: provisioning of liquidity needs to be incentivized and that cannot happen if there is little or no $TRIP being emitted.
