What is XPRT?
XPRT is the native token of the Persistence ecosystem which carries a variety of use cases including governance of the Persistence main-chain, participating in staking to contribute to network security, and its role as a work token.
XPRT holders will be able to take part in protocol governance by issuing proposals and voting on various factors which will impact the broader Persistence ecosystem.
As the Persistence chain runs on delegated Proof-of-Stake based Tendermint PBFT consensus engine, staking is integral to ensuring a secure and robust network.
Persistence has onboarded some of the world’s top validators, distributed globally. XPRT token holders will be able to delegate their tokens to our network validators for staking. Stakers will receive rewards in the form of XPRT in return for contributing to the security of the network.
XPRT staking will be launched directly after TGE, alongside our mainnet. The initial staking APR will be 35% — among the highest in the industry.
XPRT is the token around which the entire ecosystem is built, thus staking XPRT to secure the chain will result in a great deal of exposure to multiple dApps in the ecosystem for stakers.
More details regarding staking and the benefits for stakers will be shared in an upcoming article.
As a ‘work’ token, XPRT will also accrue value in direct correlation to increased financial activity within Persistence’s ecosystem dApps. Essentially, dApps on Persistence conduct business and fees trickle down to the mainchain, bringing additional value for XPRT token holders — in direct correlation to the value being processed and exchanged.
The XPRT token distribution model and release schedule have been carefully ideated to facilitate the long-term growth of a strong, engaged and vibrant participant ecosystem.
100 million XPRT will be minted at genesis and will be gradually released over the course of 42 months.
