Minds 2.0 Tokenomics With Bill Ottman

By Scott Cunningham | Tech And Things | 12 Apr 2021

Minds has recently gone through some major updates for their platform and their tokenomics. I chat with Bill Ottman the CEO & co-founder of Minds to talk about all the changes and what to expect next.

Some of the prominent updates to the token were burning 75% of the supply, more ways to earn tokens, Uniswap integrations for liquidity pool providing, on-chain holding rewards, more minds tokens being distributed, and much more.

Minds is a social media platform that offers crypto token rewards for using the platforms as a creator or general user. You earn tokens for your participation on the platform and are able to then benefit further via holding them on-chain to earn more, providing liquidity, or using them for boosting content. Its token MINDS is an ERC20 token on the Ethereum blockchain. Minds aims to be a crypto alternative to Facebook with similar features such as newsfeed, groups, and messenger.


These are some of the questions we went over:

  • Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
  • Can you give us a brief introduction to Minds?
  • What are Minds’ plans around KYC and how easy is it to qualify to receive rewards?
  • Let’s talk about the new tokenomics on Minds, first off, how are the new tokens distributed?
  • Can you explain the new engagement rewards and multipliers?
  • How do you earn with holding on-chain?
  • Can you walk us through the liquidity providing process and what those rewards look like?
  • Can you explain the ad share program that liquidity providers can benefit from?
  • Where does Minds fit in with other existing similar projects?
  • Where do you see Minds going in the next year? The next 5 years?
  • So where can everyone go to learn more about this?
