FIN Tokens have been assigned to various growth incentive programs, with a focus on ensuring long-term sustainability. The rates shown in this section will vary as governance adjusts token distribution.

Options Liquidity Mining

Options Liquidity Mining will be released continuously over ~8 years with 20 seasons planned to date.

Poolshark will emit oFIN instead of standard FIN tokens.

To convert from oFIN to FIN users will purchase FIN at a % discount.

oFIN allows for sustainable long-term growth its ability to split revenue between LPs (liquidity providers) and DAO participants.

These emissions will be significantly expanded to bootstrap protocol adoption, and the revenue generated will help increase the capacity of operations (see Protocol Revenue). More details on how oFIN works can be found on the oFIN page.

Season Rewards Breakdown

The seed raised was allocated to strategic partners who could add more than just capital to the project. The allocation for each investor was between $10,000 and $500,000.
