Composable DeFi Economics

Composable DeFi Economics

DeFi Composability enables economic systems to interact with each other and create synergies in order to improve outcome probability. ChangeX aims to offer a mobile-friendly app interface that will tap into this opportunity. Non tech-savvy individuals will be able to take advantage of non-custodial industry-leading products such as cross-chain bridges, staking, lending, DAOs, and collateralized staking in Lego-like combinations that aim to provide lower risk with higher reward. If blockchain's complex and interoperable ecosystem is the backend, then ChangeX is the front-end, the keys to unlock everything, make sense of it, and make it accessible. DeFi, crypto, banking – true composability is only possible when everything is included into one package. At ChangeX, that’s exactly what we want to achieve.

ChangeX is powered by

The CHANGE token

CHANGE is the governance token of the ChangeX app. It is a deflationary HRC20 token (HydraChain), which offers high APR to holders by acting as a bridge to the staked inflationary assets in the app, where rewards will be paid out in CHANGE.

30% of all crypto-crypto and fiat-crypto trading fees in the app will be used to power a burn mechanism to reduce total supply, thus driving the price upwards.

CHANGE will also provide governance rights to holders, allowing them to vote on new additions to the ecosystem.

*The oversubscription level for CHANGE is 1.8x, which means that a quota reduction mechanism comes into effect, reducing the amount of tokens everyone receives. This provides a fair allocation for CHANGE and a more stable aftermarket foundation for the project by effectively dispersing the tokens to a larger investor base, among other benefits, such as reduced circulating supply.

              Frequently asked questions

              Please find frequently asked questions pertaining to the tokensale event and their answers below.

              What does Enrollment and Subscription mean?

              The tokensale will be executed with an optimum risk/reward setup and an extremely limited market cap equivalent to just $2.4M of tokens. The first Phase is the Enrollment, where each user will Subscribe the amount that he/she would like to buy. During the Enrollment phase, users will deposit 3% of the final amount.

              In case of an oversubscription, the quota will be adjusted proportionately to all participants. For example, if someone has enrolled for $10,000 of CHANGE tokens, and there is a total of 2x oversubscription on the market cap ($4.8M instead of $2.4M), this would mean that the quota will be reduced by 50% for all participants. The goal is to allow a fair distribution where everyone gets equal treatment regardless of subscription size.

              There is a trade-off between buying at the ICO and buying from the HYDRA DEX. Investors who bought at the ICO make sure they bought at $0.016 and also that they can use self-vesting, but being unable to stake until the end of the lock-up period. DEX buyers will buy at an uncertain price, but will have the ability to stake immediately once staking is online.

              The CHANGE token will be traded against HYDRA and/or DAI with a total supply of 30 M tokens and corresponding 480,000 USD in HYDRA and/or DAI. Meaning that the starting price will be the same as in the ICO - $0.016 per token. However, demand should move the price up and the exact price at which you will be able to buy is not guaranteed. Buying at the DEX, however, gives you the opportunity to immediately stake CHANGE, and with only 67 million tokens in circulation for the 11 months following September, which is the result of all the vested CHANGE, the APR should be quite significant.

              When you vest your CHANGE, you lock those tokens for a certain time period and reduce the circulating supply of CHANGE tokens. This, however, does not stop you from buying at the IDO in order to stake CHANGE and enjoy the high APR, which gives you a mix of the two strategies. CHANGE tokens will be released to ICO buyers on September 30 to those that are not self-vesting. The ICO participants that are self-vesting will receive their tokens according to the selected period, so If e.g. somebody is self-vesting for 6 months, they will receive their tokens on March 31, 2023.

              The ChangeX app and CHANGE staking will be available in July for users who bought the token from the HYDRA DEX. Investors who bought during the ICO subscription phase will receive their tokens in September without self-vesting or according to the self-vesting period they opted for.

              The 3% deposit has a symbolic size relative to the subscription. It aims to incentivize participants to subscribe for realistic amount in order to have a fair and responsible event. In case a participant enrolls for an amount that he/she isn't able to cover afterward, the deposit will be deducted as a penalty fee. The user will still be able to participate with a lower amount and he/she will still have access to the event.

              Are there any country limitations for participating?

              Residents of the USA, Canada, Singapore, and China are not allowed to participate. Any KYC and/or applications from members of these countries will be automatically disqualified.

              The CHANGE token has a unique utility of facilitating the DeFi products in the ChangeX platform. Leveraged staking pools, trading pairs, and all transactions in the app will interact with the CHANGE token. A ~5% network fee generated by the staking pools will be airdropped to CHANGE token owners as rewards, thus creating a bridge between the staked inflationary assets and the deflationary economy of CHANGE. Additionally, the CHANGE token will act as the governance token for the ChangeX DAO, providing voting rights to users, while 30% of all trading fees in the app will be used to burn the total supply and stimulate deflation.

              Six of the co-founders have extensive experience in the world of blockchain. Together, they have 3 successful projects behind themselves with a combined market cap of 600M USDT – HYDRA, LockTrip, and Bitcoin Gold, all having distinct models, unique attributes, and active communities.

              The commitment phase will end on June 30 at 00:00 EEST. Once that is over, CHANGE will make its appearance on the HYDRA DEX for a liquidity event, where investors can buy the token and stake it immediately once staking is online in the app. We will then work proactively to get CHANGE listed on more exchanges and launchpads.

              If I pay the deposit with one cryptocurrency, can I make the final settlement with a different one?

              Yes, we want to make the procedure as flexible as possible and will strive to support all flagman coins and stablecoins. You can enroll in Phase 1 with any of the supported coins, and afterwards commit the final amount in Phase 2 again with a different coin from the supported list.

              There will be an invite-only private placement intended for tier 1 institutional investors with an allocation of $0.8M. Only selected entities with a solid reputation will be invited for discussions. The price will be identical to that for all other participants.

              The default cap per participant is $100,000 equivalent.

              Shortly after the finalization of the settlement phase, there will be a public DEX event with significant liquidity. It will allow anyone to top-up their desired quantity at aftermarket terms.
