Public Sale, Private Sale, Vestings

At the genesis of our protocol, we faced the titanic task of allocating our tokens fairly among purchasers, the founding team, and the community enthusiasts that will use and govern Panther.
We decided that the following allocation is what best represents our principles and creates a healthy setup for all network participants:
$ZKP allocations per stakeholder.
The full details of the token allocations are as follows:
  • Public Sale: 5% of the total supply was sold to the public with two unlocking schedules, depending on the price paid per $ZKP.
  • Private Rounds: 15% of the total supply was sold via pre-Seed, Seed, and three subsequent Private Sale rounds. Through these private funding rounds, Panther raised 10 million USD.
  • Foundation: 15% of the total supply has been reserved for the Foundation between General (8%), Reserves/Liquidity (5%), Education (1.75%), and Bug Bounties (0.25%).
  • Protocol Rewards: The Panther DAO has reserved 45% of the total supply for Protocol rewards and incentives.
  • Founders, team, and advisors: 20% of the total supply will be vested to the founders, team, and advisors, with a linear unlocking over three years. This allows Panther to continue hiring and retaining the best talent in the industry for years to come.
For the raw technical smart contract data which implements the above, please see section 1.3 of LaunchDAO proposal #3.
Release of $ZKP over 144 months.
The issuance of ZKP tokens will follow a sensible release that keeps the interests of all network participants aligned. Key stakeholders and project stewards are subject to long vesting periods for their tokens, ensuring long-term commitment to the protocol's success.
