Internal governance consensus is reached by the Cartesi Foundation before devoting or expending CTSI to any event. The foundation reserve unlocks are vital for the development of Cartesi’s tech, bootstrapping its ecosystem, and for the operations of the foundation itself.
No entity or token holder is more interested in the health of CTSI’s economy than the Foundation itself for its entire existence and longevity. The Foundation liquidates only the amounts deemed necessary, remaining careful not to disturb the secondary markets of CTSI.
In total, 40.22% of the total CTSI supply is reserved for the Cartesi foundation and will be fully unlocked by July 23rd, 2023.
As a reminder, the following chart represents the number and breakdown of all CTSI tokens that are to be released into circulation on a monthly basis. Token inflation and possible deflation for staking rewards will be revealed in the future, which is yet to be finalized, and not presented in the following chart, however, we have released the CTSI Macroeconomy article for further reading in the meantime.
CTSI will have no inflation until the mine reserve is completely depleted, which will happen no earlier than 2023.
