ABOUT EQ Utility token

EQ enables communal governance of Equilibrium. To be used for product fees, bailout liquidity, and for transaction fees on the Equilibrium Substrate

Key features

  • Governance token
    EQ holders are eligible to select Substrate validators and have a say in system changes
  • Platform currency
    Users pay transaction fees for operations on Equilibrium’s Substrate and product fees in EQ
  • Bailout liquidity
    Liquidity providers can earn yield on securing loans in the system by locking EQ in Equilibrium’s liquidity pool
  • Staking opportunities
    EQ holders receive rewards on their tokens staked to Equilibrium’s governance


How is the new EQ token used?

The token is used to perform many of the standard procedures that we are already familiar with, such as using liquidated collateral, paying for Equilibrium’s products, and earning staking rewards. However, it also introduces a series of new functionalities.

What is unique about the EQ token?

The token covers some important new utilities due to our new products. Since we are offering unprecedented, cross-chain interoperability, a key EQ function is that you can use our token on any other protocol. It can also be used for bailouts, to ensure liquidity. Unlike on other projects, our bailouts avoid forced auctions and ensure system stability by securing bad loans before adverse markets happen. Other innovations include using EQ to vote for validators, who play a key role in the system, and for paying transaction fees.

What about providing liquidity to earn EQ?

Yes, liquidity providers earn in EQ. What’s more, we have some unique advantages here — lenders can continue earning on loans even after margin calls.

Can I earn on holding EQ tokens?

Yes, you can either stake EQ to the Equilibrium’s governance and earn rewards from the Substrate validators or you can transfer them to the bailout pool and earn on securing loans in the system.

How will EQ token allocations be vested?

Team’s allocation will be locked for two years starting from the genesis block. Tokens vest monthly according to the linear curve.

Investors’ allocation will be locked for two years with monthly linear vesting.

NUT/EQ token swap allocation will have no vesting for existing NUT holders and there will be one year lockup for new NUT holders with monthly linear vesting.

Equilibrium is evolving into the first decentralized cross-chain money market that combines pooled lending with synthetic asset generation and trading. As such, we will provide the missing link that unlocks the vast remaining potential of the DeFi market both including and beyond Ethereum, and open up colossal new opportunities for lending and trade. Check out our developing new website.

In connection with this, we are introducing new products and new native assets. Today we’d like to introduce the new EQ token to you.
