đŸ”ĨDeflationary Mechanics

In addition to the hardcap set on KIM, we also implemented some deflationary mechanics in order to reduce the total supply.

Buy back & Burn

A share of the protocol earnings is dedicated to buy back & burn KIM, in order to apply a continuous buying pressure on it.

xKIM redeems

When converting xKIM to KIM, if the vesting duration isn't the maximum, the xKIM:KIM ratio will be lower than 1:1, down to a minimum of 1:0.5. All of the excess KIM will automatically be burned.

For instance, if a user redeems 1000 xKIM with the minimal 15 days vesting duration, she will obtain a 1:0.5 ratio, and receive 500 KIM in the end.

That means a total of 1000 - 500 = 500 KIM will be burned during the process.

xKIM deallocations

When deallocating xKIM from a Plugin, a deallocation tax is applied. It can vary between contracts, but will usually be of 0.5%.

The corresponding KIM amount will automatically be burned.
