NST is the Nested platform’s native token.
The NST is primarily a utility token designed to facilitate and incentivize the decentralized governance of the protocol. It is also meant to boost the user experience by unlocking unique features.
We get inspired by the best tokenomics including the one of $PTP (Platypus), $CRV (Curve), and $SNX (Synthetix).
All decisions concerning the usage of the ecosystem and rewards reserve will be done with the DAO.
Stakers of NST can change Nested platform parameters as well as vote and submit proposals to improve Nested Protocol. Governance will be live at Rubik launch.
There would be two types of rewards:
- $NST tokens from the ecosystem's reserve.
- A part of the protocol fees. We are still waiting for a final compliance approval.
Boosting portfolios return
Nested portfolios containing $NST will benefit from $NST rewards. The longer the user is locking them, the higher will be the rewards.
$NST token stakers stand to get a discount on Nested platform fees.
$NST token stakers can access some premium portfolios of assets from the best traders.
Users will be able to tip other users in $NST tokens.
Staking rewards mechanism
The more $NST the user is staking, and the longer he/she is doing it, the higher will be the rewards.
The $NST rewards part will be compoundable, but in escrow one year after the user claimed them. If the user wants to receive them now, there will be a penalty fee of 50%. These $NST tokens will be added to the rewards of the next epoch.
The protocol fees will be received at the end of each epoch in the native token of the chain the user is staking the $NST tokens in. They will be claimable at the end of each epoch.
Ecosystem & rewards
75,000,000 NST tokens (50.00%)
The ecosystem assets are used to develop awareness for Nested Finance. The ecosystem tokens will also improve the platform quality and security as well as increase our features offerings.
The rewards assets incentivize NST stakers, and during a fixed period of time, the NST liquidity providers.
As Nested Finance transitions to the community governance, the distribution of ecosystem & rewards tokens will be decided by the Nested Finance community.
Note: 2.5% are unlocked when Token Generation Event (TGE) happens, and then the same percentage every month until the governance goes live. Once the governance goes live, the ecosystem & rewards funds will be fully unlocked and managed by the community.
4,125,000 NST tokens (2.75%)

Those funds are sold to people who can get Nested more exposure (footballers, singers, cryptocurrencies influencers, etc.), marketing agencies, and foundations.
All funds not sold from the marketing reserve will be transferred to the ecosystem and rewards reserve.
Note: tokens are locked 3 months after TGE happened followed by a linear and daily distribution during the next 24 months.

NST release schedule and market capitalization estimation.
We have not included ecosystem and reward tokens, and tokens allocated to market-making for all computations displayed in this part. The first one isn't meant to be sold on the market and will be monitored by the DAO; the second one is in the form of a loan that should be repaid by the market-maker. Both should not be considered as sell pressure.
To be noted: At the TGE, if the NST token trades at the private sale price (0.8$ / token), then the market capitalization would be worth 7,020,000$ (8,775,000 x 0.8$).
