Horizon Protocol’s Liquidity Mining Program and Token Metrics

Horizon Protocol’s Liquidity Mining Program and Token Metrics

Distribution of HRZN Tokens

100% of Initial Circulating Supply Distributed to the Community

HRZN: 100% initial circulating supply distributed through seed pools in 6 days. After 6 days, there are no further emissions of HRZN for at least 2 months. There have been NO token sales of any kind.

BHorizon: 100% of the total supply of the first Horizon token will be distributed via liquidity mining over three months.

Long term liquidity mining

The Horizon Finance is designed to incentivize liquidity mining over the long run. Users provide liquidity to earn BHorizon over the course of 3 months. Subsequent Horizon tokens, named CHorizon, will launch after BHorizon, which will further incentivize liquidity.

Token burn

A portion of HRZN and Horizon tokens are burned as usage of the Protocol and marketplace grows over time. HRZN is burned to access the Protocol as well as the Horizon marketplace, and to pay for fees for Horizonset submissions by Horizon providers, and provide curation services by curators. Horizon tokens are burned as they are redeemed for Horizonsets.

How to earn HRZN and BHorizon

Step 1: Earn HRZN by staking in seed pools

1a) Choose one or more seed pools in the Horizon Vault

1b) Stake one or more assets

How to stake: connect to Metamask, approve the deposit in Metamask, then deposit the asset.

1c) Earn HRZN

50000 HRZN, representing 100% of the circulating supply for the first 2 months, will be distributed among 12 seed pools over the course of 6 days (2 million HRZN distributed per seed pool).

Step 2: Earn BHorizon by providing liquidity to HRZN or BHorizon

2a) Choose the HRZN/BNB or BHorizon/BNB liquidity pool in the Horizon Vault

2b) Provide liquidity on Uniswap to HRZN/BNB or BHorizon/BNB

How to provide liquidity on Uniswap:

Acquire BNB and HRZN or BHorizon

Click on “Provide Liquidity” in the Horizon Vault which will take you to Uniswap

Add liquidity on Uniswap to HRZN/BNB or BHorizon/BNB

You will receive HRZN/BNB LP or BHorizon/BNB LP tokens

2c) Stake LP tokens in the Horizon Vault

How to stake: connect to Metamask, approve the HRZN/BNB LP or BHorizon/BNB LP token in Metamask, then deposit the LP tokens.

2d) Earn BHorizon

Stake HRZN/BNB UNI-LP V2 = earn 12000 BHorizon (2/3 of total supply)

Stake BHorizon/BNB UNI-LP V2 = earn 6000 BHorizon (1/3 of total supply)

18000 BHorizon, representing 100% of the total supply, will be distributed among the two liquidity pools. Emissions end after 3 months, in accordance with the chart below.
