Tribute – A DeFi EcoSystem Overview

In today’s article we will introduce you to TRIBUTE – one of the newest and most promising DeFi Ecosystems on the Ethereum blockchain. What is the concept of Tribute? What DApp’s have been released in their ecosystem? How to get started with Tribute? We have all the answers to your questions and much more.

What is Tribute and the concept behind it?

Inspired by the SHUF smart contract – Tribute is a new DeFi ecosystem that focuses on community empowerment and game theory analysis. As part of Tribute’s community you will be able to shape how the project evolves and also be involved in the study of the interplay between Tribute’s token and DApps and their role in the grand DeFi space.

In the core of Tribute – a dichotomous mechanism makes sure to find a balance between short and long-term engagement in the project. The platforms token – TRBT is a deflationary and self-cycling cryptocurrency token on the Ethereum blockchain. It will be integrated with Tribute’s pioneering liquidity distribution system called Proof of Decentralized Liquidity (PoDL).

PoDL’s idea is an expansion to the currently used Proof of Liquidity (PoL) method. What does that mean? Well basically the access to the initial liquidity tokens is not removed by burning them, but by randomly granting access via a custom DApp to the Tribute’s community. It will take 100 days for all of the initial liquidity to be in the control of the users – this will make Tribute a DAO – a decentralized autonomous organization.

Furthermore Tribute aims to provide Traders with a great incentive to hold the TRBT tokens, whereas the overall economy behind Tribute incentivizes a constant flux of token trading and DApp interaction.


Let’s take a look at the tokenomics of Tribute’s token TRBT:

  • Starting Supply: 500 000 TBT
  • Ticker: TRBT
  • Token Type: ERC-20
  • OTC Price Reduction: 20%
  • Token Distribution:

Token Features:

  • Deflationary: 5% of the total amount of tokens transferred will be burned from the supply.
  • Self-Cycling: 5% of the total amount of tokens transferred will be sent to a random wallet from the top 50 token holders as a reward drop.Only the top 50 will be eligible for that airdrop. (A complex RNG on the smart contract provides the random address function and cannot be manipulated)
  • PoDL: An innovative merge between the mechanics of Proof of Liquidity (PoL) and a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO).Over the course of 100 days, all initial liquidity tokens are distributed directly to token holders rather than being burned.

What DApps have been released in Tribute’s Ecosystem so far?

Currently there are 3 DApps that will be launched on Tribute’s Ecosystem:

  • conTRIBUTE
  • more coming soon!


conTRIBUTE’s design allows the synergistic reward distribution between TRIBUTE holders and users. The concept of a conventional staking hourglass contract was used as the basis for conTRIBUTE. However, the original hourglass dapp-structure was modified to make it non-zero-sum.

  • 5% of all buys and 15% of all sells into conTRIBUTE are distributed to players as dividends relative to their percentage share.
  • 15% of the initial TRBT token supply (75,000 TRBT) has been withheld from circulation and assigned to conTRIBUTE rewards exclusively.

The 75,000 TRBT will be periodically injected into conTRIBUTE as direct dividends to all the users staking their TRBT within the dapp. Therefore, any holders entering the DApp are guaranteed to receive a total value of 67,500 TRBT distributed between them proportionally at the very least, taking into account the 7,500 TRBT that will be burned and reward dropped from the total amount upon transfers.

All transfers in and out of the DApp will not be subject to the 5% burn or the 5% reward drop, meaning there will be no transfer fee as is typically associated with all other transfers of TRBT. The DApp contains no developer fee. All funds are 100% distributed to players.


With it’s innovative concept – ENFORCED TRIBUTE is designed in a way to enforce the burns and rewards of TRBT numerous times per day. A smart contract was built which can be seeded only with TRBT tokens. The tokens within this contract can never be withdrawn nor sold.

  • The ENFORCED TRIBUTE smart contract will be seeded from its genesis with 75,000 TRBT tokens, equating to 15% of the total supply.
  • Every 12 hours the smart contract can be triggered by anyone to move 10,000 TRBT tokens. These tokens are transferred to a secondary contract within the dapp, triggering a burn of 500 TRBT (5%) and a reward drop of 500 TRBT (5%) to a random wallet in the top 50 holders.
  • After 12 hours, the same trigger will send 10,000 TRBT from the secondary smart contract to the first smart contract, again triggering a burn of 500 TRBT and a reward drop of 500 TRBT.

This contract intercommunication will continue until the ENFORCED TRIBUTE smart contract runs out of TRBT completely, meaning the initial seed of 75,000 TRBT will be completely used for token burns and rewards to TRIBUTE users.

ENFORCED TRIBUTE is a powerful driving force made to induce a greater effect of demand for TRBT by ensuring the supply becomes even more scarce on a regular basis.


Until now, many projects have spoken about transferring control of their project into the hands of their community, yet it has never been done to the efficacy that many desire. TRIBUTE TO LIQUIDITY is designed to achieve this goal and potentially shape how token holders have control over their token liquidity.

TRIBUTE To LIQUIDITY implements the PoDL system by rewarding its users through a lottery system. Players purchase tickets with TRBT, with each ticket increasing their chances of winning the raffle.

  • The raffle is coded to run once a day, ultimately selecting one winner using a trustless and secure random algorithm.
  • Once the daily timer runs out, the lottery is concluded, a winner is chosen, and the winner receive the lottery pool reward.
  • The reward pool for each round of TRIBUTE To LIQUIDITY is a percentage of the total liquidity tokens controlling the TRBT/ETH pair on Uniswap.
  • Of the TRBT collected from ticket sales: 50% is burned and 50% is sent to the conTRIBUTE dapp as dividend rewards to those who are staked.

Providing liquidity tokens directly to TRIBUTE users enables control to be passed directly to the participants as the project flourishes. This form of locking liquidity enables the users to have greater control over the behavior of TRBT and its price.

  • Users can claim their respective share of ETH and TRBT from the liquidity pool.
  • Users can personally burn liquidity tokens, further securing the stability of TRBT.

Over a period of approximately 100 days, the entire liquidity token supply associated with the TRBT/ETH pair on Uniswap will be fully distributed. This unique approach strengthens the community’s influence in the project’s success in the long-term and is an improvement to the conventional liquidity locking in the form of direct burning from the team after listing.

How to get started with Tribute?

All you need to get started with Tribute is an Ethereum wallet like MetaMask. After you set it up you will be able to go to UniSwap and buy their TRBT tokens from there:


Tribute offers an unique DeFi experience to everyone who would like to join the project. Everyone can become part of the organization and influence it’s future development. With it’s pioneering distribution system Proof of Decentralized Liquidity (PoDL), the thoroughly thought tokenomics and the experience of the developers are certainly three of the many facts why this project might turn to be one of the biggest pretty soon.
