UBXN Tokenomics

Every token must have well considered token economy and UBXN is no different. Below you will find an explanation of the UBXN tokenomics and the features of same.

Token Mechanics

UBXN is available as ERC20 on Ethereum and BEP20 on Binance Smart Chain and is a utility token that powers the UpBots platform and makes the UpBots ecosystem function correctly. Fundamentally the token has been designed to be linked closely to the adoption of the UpBots trading ecosystem.

The token can be traded on the open crypto market, either on centralized or de-centralized exchanges, or through DeFi swaps.

UpBots has a special UBXN wallet that is integrated into the platform. Users will need to have a balance of UBXN in this wallet in order to enable the most powerful platform features, such as algo bot trading or social copy trading. These features are paid for on a performance fee basis, where a user only pays if a trade is successful.

Total supply

All tokens were minted at the creation of the Smart Contract, for a total of 500,000,000 UBXN. This amount is the maximum limit, however over time this will be reduced.

Token Scarcity

The token was created with a strategy of scarcity, relying on the progressive reduction of the number of available tokens, by buying them back and burning them.

Different mechanisms are used for this purpose as follows:

  • Locking of the tokens When subscriptions will be added on UpBots, tokens used by users to purchase platform subscriptions, will be immediately locked for the duration of the subscription. To lower entry barriers without decreasing the UBXN token value, FIAT payment will also be facilitated and will be automatically converted into UBXN equivalent that will be locked during the time of the subscription. Example: a user takes a 1-year subscription, the tokens will be locked for 1 year and will be returned to UpBots only at the end of this period.

  • The Hold Program The Hold Program will be a more advanced version of the current staking program offering exta benefits to participants with the goal of further rewarding the community while also reducing the number of tokens on the market and increasing token demand. More details will be published on the Hold program as it evolves.

Token Burning Program

Burn Program One - Performance fee Burn

Services on UpBots that are linked to the performance fee system, will Burn a % of the profits users make. This program will be active until 50% of the total supply of UBXN has been burned (250,000.000 UBXN).

Burn Program Two - UpBots Net Income

15% of the UpBots net income will be used to do a buy and burn in Q4 2021. This is in addition to the UBXN that will be burned by the performance fee system when it is activated. The UpBots Net Income Burn program will be active until Q4 2024 with the percentage scaling down each year until 2024.

The goal of Burning Program Two is to accelerate the burning process. To do this we allocate a portion of the net profits made by UpBots for the year to a buy and burn event.

Burn Limit

Initially we planned to have burning programs until we had burned half the circulating supply of UBXN . However, with the addition of the stable farming pool, eventually we would reach 50% of the total supply and the pool would no longer function. To keep things simple we have removed the limitation on the amount of UBXN that can be burned so the stable coin farming pool will continue the work burn tokens after the first and second burning programs are concluded.

Does this mean we could potentially burn all the UBXN ? It is impossible to burn the entire supply due to the laws of mathematics as we will always be burning a % of the remaining UBXN so it would not be possible to burn the whole supply!

The goal of the burn programs is to have accelerated burning to begin with and then have the pool act as a dynamo generating buying pressure for UBXN and also continuously burning the supply for years to come.

Token distribution & use of funds

Tokens sold during Private sale and Institutional sale (17%) will be unlocked at a rate of 8,33% every 2 weeks, starting September 15, 2020.
