Social & Content rewards

Yellow Finance will host user-generated reviews and news about crypto. Core-systems to promote good-quality content will be user's karma and upvotes. We are developing a smart system, where users delegate part of their karma to creators they upvote. More karma means more influence on the community and content. So the system is being self-moderated and scalable. For YELLOW token it means:
  • To prevent cheating karma with bots, each upvote costs YELLOW tokens
  • On upvote 50% of token is burned, another 50% is transferred to author

B2B services

YELLOW tokens will be also used by businesses to get services on yellow.org.

  • Ability to participate in the WASM slots auctions on Yellow Exchange. Winners will be able to locate their own trading bots inside the Finex
  • Ability to open markets, create liquidity pools in future
  • Promotion and market-making services for crypto projects

Price stability

Yellow Exchange will use different methods to stabilize the price of the YEL token. First, circulation supply of the token will increase gradually (see the vesting table) with no jumps that may cause price volatility.

Staking will serve as a price protection mechanism for YELLOW tokens while benefiting users that will lock their funds in the staking pools.
