IND 2.0 Staking Model
Staking is the act of 'locking' a cryptocurrency token into a digital wallet with the intent of supporting the operations of a blockchain by reducing the circulating supply of tokens and increasing their scarcity. In return for staking tokens for a specified time period the holder is rewarded with more tokens through a smart contract on the blockchain.
Users of IND 2.0 will be able to stake their IND tokens to earn reward tokens by "depositing" them in the Indorse staking Smart Contract. Staking rewards are given out of a pool of 14,624,747.00 "Inflation Tokens" that have been kept aside from the IND token sale in 2017. The staking rewards distribution model is designed to be available for a period of 60 months and the available supply will continue decreasing month over month until the 60th month, though may continue beyond this time period depending on availability of IND tokens in the pool.
Indorse is a Coinsilium equity portfolio company. Coinsilium currently holds a 10% interest in the issued share capital of Indorse. Coinsilium also holds 5,293,875 IND tokens representing approximately 14.12% of the current circulating supply. This holding is formed of a combination of tokens granted as founder investors in Indorse as well as subsequent market purchases made by the Company.
