BEND launched through an initial fair-launch offering with an initial total supply of 10B tokens. The token distribution schedule is as follows: 21% to the developer team (1-year locked and then linearly released over 3 years), 10% to the initial fair-launch offering, 21% reserve for the treasury, 5% reserved for airdrop, 3% to incentivize Uniswap liquidity, and 4% to incentivize lend/borrow activity (linearly released over 5 years, lend/borrow ratio is 1:3).
BEND collects 30% of all interest income collected on NFT loans and distributes 100% of the income to BEND stakers (veBEND). All fees are distributed to veBEND holders each week, proportional to their veBEND balance relative to the total supply. veBEND holders can also participate in BendDAO governance.
