The forecasted max supply of GMX is around 13.25M tokens. Minting beyond the max supply is controlled by a 28-day timelock; this option will only be used if more products are launched or liquidity mining is required. The proposed distribution of the total supply includes 6M tokens for prior token migrations, 2M GMX paired with ETH on Uniswap, 2M reserved for vesting from esGMX, 2M to be managed by the price floor fund, 1M for marketing, partnerships and community developers, and 250K tokens distributed to the team (vesting linearly over two years).
GMX collects 30% of all platform fees and distributes to stakers paid in ETH and esGMX. GMX charges a 0.1% fee for opening and closing positions plus a dynamic borrowing fee based on utilization rates and the underlying asset you choose to profit in. Swap fees are also dynamic and based on whether a swap improves the weights of assets in the GLP (GMX liquidity provider token) pool towards or away from the target allocations. Minting and redeeming of GLP similarly incurs a dynamic fee based on whether the selected asset is currently over or under-weight.
