The Superalgos (SA) Token

The Superalgos (SA) token is a BEP20 token on the Binance Smart Chain. It was launched in March 2021 to accelerate development by incentivizing contributions. You may earn tokens by contributing code, educational material, or simply by learning the system and sharing what you build with it! At a later stage, the token will be the medium of payment in a decentralized Financial Services Marketplace.


We distribute the Superalgos (SA) token among the people that help develop the project. Guess what? We want you in! You came to Superalgos looking to improve your performance in the markets, and that's great! But what if we told you that — at the same time — you may participate in a much larger collective enterprise? We are an open-source, token-incentivized, global collaboration building a decentralized financial services network in which the token will be the medium of payment! No matter what type of skills you may bring to the table, you can start contributing right away!

Token Economics

The project issued 500 million tokens out of the 1.5 billion cap established. The full amount was transferred to the treasury account. The remaining billion tokens will be issued at a later stage, potentially on different platforms. The project manages a yearly budget, as per the table below. 128 million tokens were allocated for 2018, the year the project formally started. The yearly budget will go through a halving event every 6 years. The first halving will be in 2024. By then, 51.2% of the tokens will have been distributed. The total supply will be distributed by 2050.


The Core Team assigns an arbitrary percentage of the year's budget to each software release according to its size and perceived value. The people that contributed to the project since the last release become the recipients of the tokens. At this early stage, the Team weights the value of each contribution subjectively. However, shortly, the distribution will be algorithmic. You may contribute to the project regardless of your skillset, as the project needs to grow on all fronts! You may contribute code, educational material, or simply the indicators and trading systems you build with Superalgos!

How to Configure the Superalgos Token in Trust Wallet

Trust Wallet is a mobile cryptocurrency wallet that supports — among other standards — BEP20 tokens. This is one of the wallets you may use to hold and transact with your Superalgos (SA) tokens.


Issuing Schedule

We designed the issuing schedule to provide the project with formidable incentivization power during the early stages. At this point, the pie is big and there are few contributors. There is no better time to get involved!

Token Flow Chart

The Lifecycle of the Token in the Upcoming Marketplace

The token will flow into the market through distribution events tied to releases of the technology infrastructure that enables the marketplace. Entities driving the development of the project will cash out their incentives on exchanges. The marketplace will feature multiple nested use cases, with several actors playing different roles.

Token Allocation Per Release

The project distributes the Superalgos (SA) Token on a per-release basis, among contributors of each release. The distribution scheme addresses two crucial needs: it promotes a sound economy in which emission is backed by the value added to the project with each release of the software, and incentivizes contributions.

What Kind of Contributions?

Contributions may come in multiple forms. We define a contribution as the input of a Community member that adds value to the project.

There is no definitive list of types of contributions. The project may choose what inputs to incentivize depending on the stage of development. As such, incentives are a moving target determined by strategic decisions.

At this early stage, everyone may contribute with whatever set of skills they may bring as the project is vast and needs development on all fronts. Read the Contribute to Superalgos page for current ideas, or propose your own!

A few examples are contributing code, removing bugs, integrating other projects, building indicators, sharing trading systems, creating tutorials and educational content, promoting the project, documenting, translating, etc.

If you haven't contributed yet, the easiest way to earn your first tokens is by doing the Contribute to Superalgos Tutorial in the Getting Started plugin workspace and submitting a review of the software. All contributions are subject to the terms of the Apache License 2.0.

What Does the Core Team Get?

We are contributors like everyone else and benefit from the same incentive structure as the rest of the Community. By design, there is a three-way alignment of interests between the project, the Core Team, and the Community.

We've been working relentlessly since mid-2017. We pushed fearlessly through the crypto-winter and emerged in the crypto-summer unscathed.

Not the pandemic nor the global economic meltdown have slowed us down, let alone stop us, as the current state of development shows.

Tokens allocated to each release are distributed among the people that contributed during those periods, including the Core Team.

We are a force to be reckoned with!


At this point, governance of the project is centralized with the Core Team. The current focus is to distribute the revision of contributions among Top Contributors to scale governance.


We probably left out information that you may consider valuable. If you have questions, please join the Community and start a conversation. We will make sure we compile all questions so that we may include the answers here.
