Token Economics: ENS Usernames


#1

All,

We’ve released our first article in an ongoing series on token economics and how they can be applied to SNT and it’s use-cases.

You can find the article here

Please note that the numbers at the end are not meant to show exactly how much money is or will be locked up in ENS, and are not as important as the methodology used to get to them. We wanted to open up this thread for feedback on how they can be improved, what is right and what is wrong about them, and similar topics.

It is our goal to be able to apply models like this to all of the use cases, which will eventually not only give a relative impact of the use-case to the entire Status ecosystem, but also methods for evaluation priority of development and potential impact of new features. They should be helpful for how much money to allocate into liquid funding, etc.

So give it a read and tell me what you think. And big special thanks for @barry for starting all this work and putting in a tremendous amount of time to the underlying notebooks that started this work, and @jonathan for helping put it all together into something that’s approachable and readable to everyone, as well as a lot of the grunt work of getting it all wrapped up. Furthermore, the folks in the token-economics swarm have been incredibly helpful in feedback and thoughts throughout.
