Will UNIT be traded on other exchange platforms?
Yes the aim is to be listed on all major exchanges though a focus will be to grow use of the native exchange first as it directly supports the value of the UNIT token treasury and platform growth.
Is UNIT an ERC20 token?
No, UNIT is native to the Unit Network platform and is currently not supported on other chains.
Is UNIT more a commodity that will be used or equity in a company?
It’s a hybrid between a commodity/share, similar to BTC in the bitcoin network or ETH in the Ethereum network.
How do you value UNIT?
There is a "push" and a "pull" way to value the UNIT token:
a. Push. The current and expected future capital flowing into the UNIT treasury “pushes” up the UNIT price like a “discounted cash flow” because capital that flows in is like a dividend to UNIT holders and the treasury itself is a “dividend-repository” accessible to token holders in a trustless way. Capital to the UNIT treasury comes from three sources:
i. Trading fees. 0.5% trading fee on millions and then billions of DAOs/tokens created across Unit Network to represent the value captured by an industry, city, business, brand, personal identity, idea, or anything else one can imagine. ii. Withdrawal fee. 0.5% fee is assessed on withdrawals from the platform. iii. Token sales. UNIT token sales, which bring deflationary capital onto the network and into the UNIT treasury, build a stronger and stronger sun-like center of gravitational pull around which the global token economy can revolve.
b. Pull. Circulating UNIT token has multiple uses that lock it up to create a supply shock and “pull” the price up through the various sales rounds and bring in more capital to the UNIT treasury to back the token economy. i. Other Project Banks/Treasuries. UNIT can be used to buy into other project tokens, and much of that UNIT will go into treasuries and will stay there as long as the project token sports an above-book valuation (i.e. token owners believe it the project has a future). ii. Bond Staking. UNIT can be staked to earn bonding rewards, similar to DOT bonding rewards by DOT holders who stake DOT tokens on the Polkadot network iii. Vaults. UNIT can be locked by UNIT owners in vaults they create. Deposits to the network of BTC, ETH, DOT, etc. by other users are i. wrapped by these vaults to the Unit Network in a decentralized way as BTCU, ETHU, DOTU, etc., and ii. loans to vaults, whose UNIT is locked until the loan is completely repaid, making UNIT the pristine global reserve asset for the world’s “decentral bank”.
What is UNIT token’s fundamental value?
UNIT’s decentralised treasury is backed by reserve assets BTC, ETH, DOT, MATIC, SOL, BNB, ADA, ALGO, AVAX, ONE, NEAR, XLM, ATOM, TON, CRO, and USDU. These assets (total value in the treasury divided by total token supply) represent the floor price of the UNIT token.
Why are you raising funds?
To back the token economy. The more capital wrapped onto the network and into UNIT, city, and industry token treasuries, the stronger the gravitational pull for token projects to be created to want to earn UNIT and/or the respective city or industry tokens.
What do you do with the money?
It simply backs the token and gives it fundamental value, so that the UNIT token itself is more attractive for use in the token economy.
What’s the P/E ratio for UNIT and what is it based on?
If profit refers to the increase in the UNIT treasury, and equity refers to the UNIT market cap, then the P/E ratio could be compared to a traditional tech company, which can have between a 20 to 100 P/E ratio.
How can I change UNIT tokens back to fiat?
Similar to Bitcoin/Ethereum/foreign currency/stocks, using an exchange that handles the conversion based on the market rates.
Does the UNIT token sale include commissions? If yes, what is the structure?
There is a token bonus specifically for the UNIT core team, which includes a combination of UNIT tokens (20%) and cash (10%). After the 10% cash bonus, 90% of funds raised in private token sales are not to be used for runway or operating expenses but simply to back up the network/protocol value, creating the floor price of the UNIT token.
What rights do UNIT holders have?
UNIT holders can redeem the floor value of the token from the UNIT treasury, as well as stake in vaults and liquidity pools, buy other tokens, and stake for bonding rewards to secure the network.
