What CTX Does

The TCAP Protocol is managed as a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) governed by a ERC20 standard interface token, CTX. CTX holders are able to make governance proposals, vote on such proposals, and delegate their votes to other CTX holders. This type of Governance allows for various parameters of the TCAP system to be modified to suit the community and projects best interest. Some aspects of the TCAP system can be upgraded or replaced entirely.

CTX has an initial supply of 10,000,000 tokens, which are distributed to:


Any CTX allocated to the Founders, Advisors, and Treasury are distributed via a multi-year vesting contract. Any Initial Protocol Incentives are distributed via CTX Rewards Issuance & Vesting.

As time goes on, it may be in the best interest of the project and/or community to allocate and mint new CTX tokens. The creation of new CTX tokens via governance vote will be subject to a 2% per year maximum adjustment. That is, the max supply of CTX tokens cannot increase more than 2% in a given 1 year time span. Minting new CTX tokens may be used for compensation of black swan events that leaves TCAP vaults undercollateralized, continued incentives for product development, and other solutions that further advance the protocol.

CTX Rewards Issuance & Vesting

CTX issuance occurs on a per block basis with rate that diminishes at the start of each month. CTX is rewarded in this manner until the hard cap is reached. The rates are as follows: In order to minimize the volatility of CTX due to new issuance from community rewards, newly rewarded CTX tokens shall be subjected to a vesting period of 6 months where 30% of the reward is immediately available while the remaining 70% reward will not be accessible until 6 months vesting period has been reached.

Early Adopter Rewards

As an incentive for early Adopters, the TCAP protocol will reward CTX tokens to Vault owners in the first 14 days of deployment. Any Vault owner with outstanding TCAP debt will earn CTX token rewards on a per-block basis. Early adopter rewards are the only type of rewards that don’t need vesting as their main goal is to distribute CTX for protocol governance. Early adopters rewards are issued over 14 days for a total of 500,000 CTX. Assuming approximately 6500 Ethereum blocks per day over 14 days (91,000 Ethereum blocks), the per block reward would be 5.4945 CTX split across the debtors at that point in time.

The 500,000 CTX will be rewarded across two vaults:

· ETH Vault 250,000 CTX (Starting today 4/8/21)

· DAI Vault 250,000 CTX (Starting today 4/8/21)

Liquidity Provider Rewards

As an incentive to provide liquidity for TCAP on certain Decentralized Exchanges, the CTX protocol will reward CTX tokens to any liquidity provider who stakes their liquidity pool position within the CTX protocol. These tokens will be rewarded on a per-block basis and be distributed to liquidity providers based on their percentage of pool ownership. Initial liquidity provider rewards target a 6 month cycle where the per block rate is higher initially and decreases on a monthly basis. The total amount of CTX for the initial 6 month liquidity provider rewards is 20% of the protocol or 2,000,000 CTX. Assuming approximately 6500 Ethereum blocks per day over 6 months (1,170,000 blocks), this would result in 1.7094 CTX issued per block.

The 2,000,000 CTX will be rewarded across four pools:

· ETH/TCAP Pool 500,000 CTX (Starting today 4/8/21)

· DAI/TCAP Pool 500,000 CTX (Starting soon, we will make the announcement on Discord and Reddit)

· ETH/CTX Pool 500,000 CTX (Starting soon, we will make the announcement on Discord and Reddit)

· Additional Pool 500,000 CTX (Starting soon, we will make the announcement on Discord and Reddit)
