In December 2020, we released a mint schedule and began minting DGTX tokens on a quarterly basis. Since then, 590 million DGTX has been minted. Today, another 280 million DGTX was scheduled to be minted. However, after careful consideration and taking into account the feedback from our community, we decided to cancel the mint. There will be no more minting of DGTX today or in the future. Why?
Why Cancel DGTX Minting?
As you know if you’ve been following our project, DGTX minting was always detailed in the original white paper as our means of supporting a zero-fee futures exchange. However, things change. The minting has proven to be hugely unpopular with our community, and we believe that it has a negative effect on the DGTX token price.
The original plan for the token minting was to cover all the costs of our operations. As we developed and grew, new tokens were also destined to pay for our various rewards programs and market-making. Despite the benefits of rewarding our traders and providing liquidity for our markets, after six months of using this model, we can see that it simply isn’t working. Minting new DGTX is causing a negative effect and downward pressure on the DGTX token price.
Therefore, we’re happy to announce this news, and we believe that our community will be as well—especially now that we have a solution to replace the token minting model—Blockfunder.
Blockfunder Removes the Need for DGTX Minting
Blockfunder is an exciting new product for the Digitex ecosystem and it’s already live, with its first IEO on the way. Our token launching platform presents our company with a new way of generating additional income to sustain operations. With the first IEO, Blockster crypto social network, three of the six token sale phases will accept DGTX only. This has the potential to collect up to $4.5 million worth of DGTX off the market.
Adam enthused, “We’re really excited to introduce Blockfunder as it eliminates the need for token minting and, at the same time, creates demand for DGTX. We’re also looking forward to partnering with exciting new startups that will join the Digitex ecosystem.”
A portion of every future IEO token raise will go to Blockfunder, as the token sale hosting platform, just as all other token sale platforms in the industry. And, speaking of other platforms, Blockfunder presents Digitex with an awesome new marketplace opportunity. As you probably already know, many of the trending token sale platforms right now, including Binance’s Launchpad, have a long list of startups lined up to be tokenized!
After the ICO craze died out and projects began to seek new ways to finance their endeavors, IEOs became a real viable alternative. In 2019, the average ROI from IEOs was a staggering 760%. Of course, with the lengthy bear market and dwindling interest in crypto, these numbers began to drop off. But as crypto mania awakens again, IEOs are making a fierce comeback.
The average ROI has shot up like a rocket, exceeding 6,000% on leading platforms. You just have to glance at an aggregator site like CryptoTotem to find upwards of 20 IEOs going on in a given month with an average raise per IEO in the ballpark of $4,628,856.
With all these encouraging signs, we’re very excited about the potential of Blockfunder. We’re just starting out with our first IEO, our very own in-house-built project that we will leverage for all future IEOs and Digitex products. In the meantime, we’re preparing and designing our process for scouting and listing new and innovative projects.
Enabling the Digitex Ecosystem
Yesterday’s topic on the blog was about Digitex building a self-sustaining ecosystem in which each product enriches the others. And they all provide various external revenue sources that eliminate the need for token minting.
For example, after launching new startups on Blockfunder, their tokens will then be listed on the Digitex spot exchange. Blockster will help to build their social profiles where they can share daily news and build their audience. And Blockfarm will reward their communities in staking rewards, building up more followers through our yield farming platform.
“After years of trying, we’ve now got a large, well-managed in-house development team working on building out the Digitex ecosystem. I can’t wait for the markets to figure this out and I look forward to a sharp and sudden revaluation of the DGTX token,” Adam added.
With all these positive initiatives going on, we ask you to continue to support us as we build and fortify this ecosystem. We understand that you’ve been waiting for the DGTX token price to be in a much better position by now, especially since the exchange and our technology has so greatly improved. So, we hope that you’ll be encouraged by all our latest news. As always, we are listening, and we’re stopping the minting. Together, we will make Digitex truly great. Thank you for your support.
