The current TRU token economics are straight out of a 2017 “standard” ICO playbook (pre-DeFi). The problem is, it’s 2020 and Defi Tokens economics look nothing like this.
When 60% of your outstanding tokens (30% pre-sale, 30% company/team) are centralized, it’s a really tough sell. The product can even be good, but no one will want to invest in the tokens.
I think the “gold standard” for token economics in 2020 is YFI.
YFI had no “company/team” tokens. It was 0%.
YFI distributed 100% of their tokens to people who used their protocol in a fair and distributed manner.
It had no inflation after the tokens were distributed early on. Once the tokens were fully distributed in the first month, that was it. If you wanted it, you had to buy it. There was no more inflation.
I think that’s a very smart way to go. And it shows. Look at what YFI is worth today.
