Inflation and Fee Allocation:

20% of inflation will be routed to the treasury. 60% of inflation will be routed to stakers and 20% to trading rewards. These percentages can be adjusted at the Elite Council's discretion via a KIP. This will enable Kwenta to sustainably fund DAO roles while enabling the community to use the entire token supply as needed.

Vesting Mechanism

KWENTA printed via inflation will undergo a 1-year lock-up period. The lock-up mechanism will begin with an 90% fee for vesting KWENTA early which will decay linearly. If tokens are vested early, the percentage of tokens that are still applicable to the fee will be sent back to the treasury. After one year, the fee would reach 0% and no tokens would be burned when vesting KWENTA.
Ex. If you have 1 $KWENTA, and its vesting, and you vest immediately, you’ll be left with 0.1 $KWENTA, if you wait a year and you vest, you get 1 $KWENTA
