Dfistarter: A Look at our Detailed Tokenomics

2 min readSep 24, 2021

Now that we’ve introduced the $DFI and $DFA tokens and their purposes within DfiStarter Launchpad, we’ll now take a moment to look closer at their metrics, vesting schedules, and allocation.

Like we covered in our previous post, DfiStarter will run a dual token model that will allow for separation between platform governance functions and project funding allocations. The two-tiered token system was designed to create a high flor price for $DFI.

$DFI, the heart of DfiStarter will be the vessel for community and project development and the governance token inside the Launchpad. It can be staked to earn $DFA and burned to access Boosters that act as NFTs and can be traded in the market (see a detailed explanation of the unique DfiStarter Booster offering feature)

$DFA, on the other hand, will give its holders access to our IDO allocation pools. Allocations will be proportional to $DFA submission.
