• The economy and circulation of the Intelli Token

Intelli Token (INTI) Economy

In summary, a hard cap of no more than 1.5 billion Intelli tokens issued during the first five years is set. For the sixth year and on, an issuing cap of 150 million Intelli per year is permitted. This allows for continuous expansion after the fifth year, but with a declining inflation rate.


The Intelli token and the economy around it are designed to efficiently respond to the needs of the ecosystem as stakeholders are on-boarded and adoption grows.

The Intelli Economy is dynamic in the sense that macroeconomic variables are not fixed. Instead, they are controlled by predetermined policies that govern emission, as defined in the Intelli Macroeconomic GuidanceThe foundations of the Intelli Economy providing guidance to the Governing Body on the expected Intelli Token issuing schedule and instruments.

.

The project has three main needs that the Intelli Economy has to cover. Let's briefly analyze the economic activity arising out of those needs, and the corresponding channels of Intelli issuance.

Development

Development is all the work focused inward that the project needs to sustain growth. It is a balance of technical, business and community work. These three layers and their relationships are at the core of this project.

Issuance is in the form of Intelli StreamsA device that allocates Intelli Tokens at a preprogrammed rate to the address of a person or entity working for and adding value to the Superalgos Project.

Team Members earn Intelli Streams for their contributions and participate in the governance of the Intelli Token. (governance details are available in the Intelli Governance CharterThe instrument that shall govern the issuance of Intelli Tokens.

) that delivers a continuous flow of tokens for as long as the entity is adding value to the project.

The token is therefore issued in exchange for specific, measurable value contributed in the form of work, which benefits the whole ecosystem.

External Liquidity

These include project expenses, like the technical, business and legal infrastructure, as well as awareness-raising, educational and promotional activities that the Superalgos OrganizationA not-for-profit organisation with the main purpose to promote the Superalgos Project. The Superalgos Organization is the legal entity representing the Superalgos Project and serving as the excecutive arm, with attributions in certain management tasks, public awareness and education. shall undertake.

Issuance is in the form of rolling Micro Exchange OfferingsThe Superalgos Project aims to distribute ALGO Tokens to the public by means of rolling micro public offerings through a network of partner Exchanges. Offerings shall happen as each Exchange is on-boarded to start its own Competitions. Each Exchange shall sell a number of ALGO tokens to its own clients. This distribution strategy intends to serve Exchange's clients as they start using the Superalgos Platform, satisfying the organic demand for the ALGO Token to access Superalgos Platform services. (MEOs) occurring every time a new Exchange and its community are on-boarded. Ongoing liquidity needs are serviced by partner Exchanges, who link the Intelli economy to existing economies fueled by other forms of currency.

The token is therefore issued in exchange for growing the user base, enlarging the ecosystem and providing liquidity, which benefits the whole ecosystem and balances emission with real, tangible value.

Intelligence Incentives

This third channel serves to stimulate the primary activity of system participants evolving Algorithms—by injecting Intelli tokens into a Competition Prize Fund, aiming to activate and fuel Competitions.

The token is therefore issued in exchange for intelligence, which is spread across the ecosystem as winning Strategies are open-sourced.


In conclusion, the issuance of Intelli tokens carefully matches the growth of the ecosystem. Indeed, the design of the economy allows for and incentivizes rapid growth. In all instances, issuance is governed by a decentralized Governing Body, as detailed in the Intelli Governance Charter.
