Token Vesting Tool: An essential part of any blockchain startup
In the past two years, there are more and more blockchain projects launched with their own tokens. The project owner will release their tokens to the general public through a crowdfunding event. The vesting tool was created to simplify this process as well as maximize its efficiency.
With the strength in Blockchain services, Ekoios has developed and delivered the token vesting tool – an innovative solution that will allow crypto projects to lock their tokens and set a release schedule. Here’s an in-depth look into our new service – token vesting tool development to figure out what it is and how it benefits project owners and investors.
What is vesting?
Vesting or linear vesting is the process of locking and releasing tokens after a period of time. Vested tokens usually belong to project team members, partners, advisors, and others who contributed to the project development, and they can also belong to investors who bought tokens before they went on general sale. As the project progresses, tokens are released gradually over the vesting period, perhaps once a month, once a week, or even daily.
Vesting in crypto, similar to traditional finance, is frequently used to ensure long-term commitment to a project from team members and others involved in the project. It guarantees that the project owners have a financial incentive to continue developing the project which gives potential investors more confidence in the business.
Why is vesting so important?
After an Initial Coin Offering (ICO), an Initial DEX Offering (IDO), or a crowdfunding period, there are often massive sell-offs as the project owners or the early investors sell their tokens as soon as they hit the market. This will result in a huge surplus supply of the token, which can lead to massive drops in the token price.
Crypto is unlike any other market because of its high volatility. These massive sell-offs are also a result of a huge price increase created by the hype surrounding the new project. Retail investors create a spike in the price that early investors and the project members can then sell into, causing the price to drop and leaving the retail investors with a significant loss.
Without vesting, a single or a small number of individuals, groups can hold a significant amount of the project’s tokens from the token generation event date. This allows them the ability to quickly cause supply fluctuations that can be harmful to the token’s ecosystem and price in the long run. This would signify a huge threat to the token’s stability. Vesting, in effect, allows the given token to be distributed appropriately before any individual has this power.
Eventually, vesting is at the heart of token economics. With a vesting schedule, both public and private sale participants are protected. Above all, it ensures the long-term project’s stability and the ecosystem’s viability. It protects not only the future of a company but also the interests of those who took part in Initial Coin Offerings which include IDOs.
Why do you need a vesting tool?
The vesting tool was created to assist project owners in automating the vesting process. As mentioned earlier, a vesting tool will allow crypto projects to lock their tokens and set a release schedule automatically. Thus, it cuts down the owners’ workload, saves more time, and money in this process.
In detail, if the vesting process is implemented manually, the owners would have to pay the tokens to investors one by one, which causes them to bear the gas fee for each time. Furthermore, in big projects, there are hundreds, even thousands of investors participating in the early rounds. Manual tokens payout is nearly impossible, it might lead to mistakes, causing losses for project owners and inconvenience for investors. Using a vesting portal with smart contract technology integrated, the investors can access, keep track of the token allocation process and claim by themselves.
