Our contracts will be deployed
on all chains where we see native presales at scale

Beginning in Q3 2021 with EVM compatible chains & L2s

Following our IDO, we are deploying on Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain. The UNV token and vesting contracts will be available on both chains with a cross-chain bridge, soon after launch.

For Developers
Free, custom, audited, distribution

We provide a full suite of free vesting tools - allowing you to construct ideal vesting schedules for your project, then deploy them to the chain of your choice with a few clicks.

Unvest generates fees from investors that trade while vesting, you can collect those fees by staking UNV tokens.

UNV Token
Distribution

Unvest is launching with Liquid Vesting, meaning a low initial circulating cap, and low sell pressure at each vesting milestone

UNV Tokens can be Liquidity Farmed to earn fees collected by the protocol. Each time an early investor (in UNV and other projects) trades their unvested tokens, the Liquid Vesting (or Liquid Vesting NFT) contract collects a percentage of these project tokens as fees.

These tokens are available to market participants who provide Liquidity for UNV Token, and stake their LP tokens in a corresponding rewards pool.

Successful token launches with high trading volumes generate highly lucrative rewards pools, creating an economic incentive to buy UNV, remove it from circulation and provide DEX liquidity.

The Unvest team will also be providing incentives and rewards to those engage in the ecosystem, stake, and provide liquidity.

FAQs
Frequently asked questions

Will the team tokens be vested over time?

Team tokens will be completely locked for 18 months (with no Liquid Vesting or early selling) - then after 18 months, Team tokens will unlock at a rate of 10% per month.

This will be done using traditional vesting, not Unvest Liquid Vesting. Liquid Vesting is most suitable for early investor tokens, not team tokens.

Are there any lockup periods for early investors?

Yes, early investors are subject to a 9-12 month lockup depending on their round.
This means the total circulating supply at launch will be only 8% of early investors tokens, or around $800k worth of UNV.

Early investors will be able to use Liquid Vesting to sell their allocations early, but they won’t be able to dump on the main market pairs for UNV. Liquid Vesting tokens are a separate token with a separate ERC-20 address.

What is the purpose of holding UNV tokens?

The total addressable market (TAM) for token presales already amounts to hundreds of billions of USD equivalent value, forecasted to grow to over a trillion in the next decade.

Investors in projects that use UNV’s contracts can sell their allocations early, and pay a fee for doing so. This fee would be competitive with OTC desks that charge upwards of 5% (sometimes up to 20%) per transaction - with none of the velocity limitations or counterparty risk.

All of these fees enter project-specific rewards pools that can only be accessed by buying UNV tokens from the open market, putting them into the UNV liquidity pool, then staking the LP tokens to earn these fees.

This creates a virtuous cycle where multiple parties including project investors, project owners and yield farmers are all motivated to compete for the reward yield, and in the process remove UNV from circulation and add to UNV liquidity.
