Alpha Launchpad: Value Accrual to ALPHA Stakers

This post was originally published on Alpha Finance

As a part of the Alpha Launchpad incubator program announcement series, let us dive into the value accrual part of the Alpha Launchpad, which will significantly multiply the returns for ALPHA stakers!

Alpha Launchpad summary

A quick summary for those who need a recap.

Alpha Launchpad DeFi incubator program is the first and only launchpad program created by builders for builders.

Alpha Launchpad is also the only launchpad program that focuses on incubating DeFi projects from the ground up and driving significant growth post-launch.

In a nutshell, Alpha Launchpad will:

👉 multiply value accrual to ALPHA stakers 💸

👉 grow the Alpha Universe 🌎

👉 build key building blocks in DeFi 🔧

👉 grow talent and developer mindshare 👩‍💻

Overview of value accrual to ALPHA stakers

For those who stake ALPHA tokens on Alpha Tokenomics site, stakers will not only get protocol fees collected from Alpha products (existing), but will soon get

  1. A share of incubated projects’ tokens
  2. A share of incubated projects’ protocol fees

Distributing incubated projects’ tokens to ALPHA stakers

Rationale

Through Alpha Launchpad, Alpha development team will work closely with the incubated projects and provide hands-on support, mentorship, and advice in multiple areas to ensure the projects launch and grow successfully.

By distributing a portion of the incubated projects’ tokens to ALPHA stakers, the whole ALPHA community will benefit directly from the Alpha development team’s work.

How distribution works

Alpha Launchpad incubated projects will allocate a certain percentage of their tokens to be distributed to ALPHA stakers on Alpha Tokenomics site.

Incubated projects’ tokens will be distributed to ALPHA stakers based on 2 main factors:

  1. Number of ALPHA tokens you stake. The more ALPHA tokens staked, the more incubated projects’ tokens you get.
  2. The length of time you stake ALPHA tokens for. The longer period of time you stake, the more incubated projects’ tokens you get.

While there is no minimum period of time you have to stake ALPHA tokens for (apart from the unbonding period), the length of time you stake ALPHA tokens impacts the distribution of tokens you get.

The incubated projects’ tokens will go through a few months of lock-up period and a few months of vesting period. Specific lock-up and vesting periods will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Distributing incubated projects’ protocol fees to ALPHA stakers?

Rationale

Alpha Launchpad does not only focus on incubating other DeFi projects for a successful launch, but also help advise and mentor the projects towards long-term growth post-launch.

By allocating a small portion of the incubated projects’ protocol fees to ALPHA stakers ensures that the ALPHA community will benefit from the work the Alpha development team provides to the incubated projects post-launch.

How distribution works

Once incubated projects start distributing their protocol fees, they will allocate a certain percentage of the fees to ALPHA stakers on Alpha Tokenomics site.

The distribution will work similarly to how protocol fees from Alpha products are distributed to ALPHA stakers. This means that the more ALPHA tokens staked, the more incubated projects’ protocol fees stakers get.

Closing thoughts

Alpha Launchpad is key to drive the next growth stage at Alpha Finance Lab, grow the talent pool and developer mindshare in DeFi, improve the quality of DeFi products, and drive the speed of innovation in the DeFi industry.
